Possible Sale of Bryce Hospital

Bryce Hospital
There’s an article in The Birmingham News about a potential sale of Bryce Hospital. The adjoining University of Alabama is negotiating for the purchase of the property. Nothing’s definite yet, least of all the fate of the Kirkbride there, but there’s some worry that the building may be lost if the sale goes through. Hopefully preservation will win out, but unfortunately the odds aren’t in its favor if what’s happened to a few other Kirkbride buildings recently is anything to go by.

    Just out of curiousity, I was looking for pics/info on Bryce Hospital. My father, Dr. Rufus D. Wright, was a doctor there in the 1960’s, retired either 1969 or 1970. We lived at #9 Bryce Lawn. The houses were gone but the ancient oak that was in our back yard was still there. My dad died in 1974 when I was 7yrs old. Just seeing what info is out there relating him and Bryce, if any. Thanks for letting me share. Jennifer
