Submitted by 2000 A.D. Mental Patient
Comment by Mary: I'm 50 years old . I was placed there when I was 12. Years old ! I could tell you things that has happened. To me. I still relive these . I still have nightmares.
Comment by Elizabeth: I was a patient here in 2008. I saw and heard things all the time, but I'm in a mental place. Right? So I'm just insane. They made me think I was crazy for what was going on. Strange bruises and scratches. For a while I had a room of my own, and I always saw a dark figure in the corner while I tried to sleep.
Comment by Justin: Actually, it's still open as a mental institution. They just don't use some of it because of the ghosts.
