Welcome to the Asylum........ Just try to escape ********.

What would have seen you sent to an insane asylum years ago would seem quite unbelievable to a semi educated person today. For instance, in the 1800's you could be institutionalized for a wide variety of things: Wives and daughters who did not obey their husbands or fathers could be put away, alcoholics, depressed people, "angry people", women in menopause, and people going against the norm would also have seen their freedom and dignity evaporate before them and be sent away and institutionalized. So as you can see, you may just be able to find one of your ancestors in a mental institution even though they really were not "insane".

What are insane asylums? Before the advent of modern psychiatric drugs, mentally ill people were housed in asylums. These institutions often housed hundreds of patients ranging from people with mild mental illness to full-blown psychotics. Alcoholics, derelicts, homeless people, Civil War veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder and even the elderly were left in the care of psychiatric institutions. These so-called insane asylums were often huge buildings with hundreds of wards and treatment rooms. Many were humane places offering the most advanced care of the time, but some developed sinister reputations for cruelty and treatments that would now be deemed barbaric.

At the turn of the 20th century, the notion of warehousing patients in big institutions began to fall by the wayside with a new approach of housing patients in family groups or cottage-style living coming into vogue. By the 1970s, many patients’ rights advocates believed that the mentally ill could live in the community, and with the huge surge of newer, more effective psychiatric drugs, many of the old insane asylums shut their doors for good.

Today, former asylums have been converted into other uses or stand empty, waiting for the wrecking ball, or an entrepreneurial person to buy them and convert them to other uses. Many paranormal investigators feel that these former insane asylums are hotbeds of paranormal activity. So many people, many emotionally disturbed, suffered and died within their walls. Some investigators believe that such intense energy leaves specific imprints on a location. Decide for yourself whether or not reports about the two supposedly haunted insane asylums described below are on the level.
