The Liverpool Asylum for the Infirm and Destitute was run by the New South Wales Government from 1862 until 1933. It had formerly been the Liverpool Asylum, run by the Benevolent Society. The Asylum provided refuge for infirm and destitute men, including youths. Those able to assist in the Asylum's farm operations and workshop were paid a small daily wage. In 1933 it became the Liverpool State Hospital and Home.
