The second state hospital in California was built in the 1870s on 192 acres of property from the old Rancho Tulocay land grant. Classified as a low- to medium-security facility for mentally disabled patients who have been committed by civil or criminal authorities, the hospital originally maintained a working farm and dairy, but has transferred much of its land to nearby Skyline Wilderness Park. Napa State also has a place in punk-rock history: In 1979, psychobilly group <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Cramps-Live-State-Mental-Hospital/dp/B00018D5RQ">the Cramps played a concert </a>at the hospital for an enthusiastic and unrestrained audience of patients, many of whom jumped onstage with the band; the show was captured on a video that was released commercially in 2004.
