Carville in the U.S. state of Louisiana is the site of the former national leprosarium of the United States. Spreading across 330 acres, it was established in 1884 as the only in-patient facility in the United States for treating leprosy. It closed in 1999, having treated many people during its century-long history. There is a museum of leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, on site.
