This state funded insane asylum first opened its doors in 1892 and was built to house up to 500 patients. By the 1920s, the asylum faced significant overcrowding, having more patients than beds. Even after five new buildings were added to accommodate the growing patient population, the facility again faced an overcrowding dilemma. When their population grew to over 2,700, they were turning away all new patients but had no further plans to expand or create a solution for the overcrowded living situations.
In the 1940s, electroshock therapy was a primary source of treatment for schizophrenia, depression and homosexuality. Many people died during these treatments, and when no families would claim them, they were buried on this property among many unmarked graves.
Like all asylums of this time, there are endless accounts of abuse that occurred within these walls. The most heartbreaking are the people who were not insane, but still ended up trapped here under unfortunate circumstances for many years. Seeing that the stories I researched are the people who lived through the experience to tell it, it makes me curious about the ones who didn't have a voice and never escaped this hell on earth, especially within the elderly population.
This facility was abandoned in 1996, however it is still one of the most heavily guarded locations I've ever visited. Whatever atrocities were committed behind this barbed wire fence, the state is doing its best to let time and the elements wash away whatever horrific reminders remain.

A famous artist hired an architect to build this mansion in the early 20th century. The house is a one of a kind design - three cubic areas, designed specifically so the artist could work from home. The first cube was for housing and sleeping, the second triad consisted of the area for office and management, and the third was what is featured in this photo - part of the art gallery. This home design was an original concept and should have been a protected local architectural treasure. Instead, after artist died in the 1930s the home needed regular maintenance but became abandoned. In 2009, there was a major effort to clean up the house and restore it to the historical gem it was. Copper thieves broke into the home the same year, destroying the roof and allowing the powers of mother nature to run her course.
I visited this home many times and watched its rapid decay over the course of three years. It went from still salvageable to beyond repair in such a short period of time. With many floors now collapsed and with such heavy rot, this structure will inevitably soon totally collapse and a local part of history will be lost forever.
