It’s not often that I get weirded out about being somewhere, but this place was quite strange.
I don’t have much to say about the home, but hope that the photos can speak for themselves.
Today’s photo album is one of what had appeared to be an abandoned slaughter house found exploring in 2014.
We abandoned the skies when we grew up and refused to fly. We refused to reach such incredible heights. It’s a shame, when we don’t see life the same as it was through a child’s eyes. When we can’t remember that beauty, imagination quickly dies. Too many of us have grown up, but are no longer alive.
Earlier today, I posted a poll to ask what everyone would rather explore – between an abandoned hospital and an abandoned prison, the hospital took the winning place!
For nearly 20 years now the hospital grounds have sat, quietly collecting decay, crumbling away behind streets that have now become forests.
Mental patients placed in the hospital were finding ways to wander from the grounds and into the public, which frightened many people. Complaints continued through the years, and by the early 1980s, the hospital had compiled several dozens of convictions, including scandals, which involved the theft and sale of prescription drugs.
Their families had left them behind, and never once looked back. When these patients would pass away, their bodies were often buried throughout a field with unmarked graves.
