A new Department of Youth Services lock-up facility designed especially for young women on the grounds of Westborough State Hospital will open at the end of the month.
The Zara Cisco Brough Princess Whiteflower Center for Girls in Westborough, named after a local Nipmuc Tribe leader and activist, will house 25 girls in the statewide Pelletier Assessment Center and 15 girls in the Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps Rotenberg School, according to Barbara Morton, the DYS regional director of the Central Region.
The $20 million center will take the place of the Pelletier Center, which was built in 1890 and is no longer habitable, Morton said.
