    Friday Night Ghost Adventures On Travel Channel. They Are Going To An Asylum..

    Once I know this post has taken I will delete this group, nothing personal except I am officially mental and that idea is freaky, of being locked up... I prefer to torture or help society. LOL.  Please watch.  I think it is at 9 and probably repeats later in the night...

    I Want To Visit An Abandoned Mental Asylum

    I've visited no-longer-in-use prisons and a prison for the mentally ill. They were very interesting, love hearing all the freaky and exciting stories. What I really want to do is visit an old abandoned mental asylum. Sounds freaky I know. I've seen photos from people who have...

    Whitby Psych

    When I was a teenager, my friends and I used to wander through the abandoned Whitby psychiatric hospital. It had been abandoned almost 30 years, and it was incredibly creepy to go through. Always at night, since it was very illegal to be on the grounds without a press pass. I...

    Would Be Interesting...

    To be honest, Asylums scare the living hell out of me, and really disturb me. I feel almost as if the patients mental illnesses are contagious and like my mind is absorbing them.... But oddly enough, if the place was abandoned, I wouldn't mind exploring it. I'd still feel an...

    I Have.

    Near my house there is an abandoned hospital. When it was first built it was used to house prisoners of war in 1952. After the war they converted it into a mental institution. If you google this place, there is no info on it. It became abandoned in 2002. There are about 32...

    Abandoned mental institutions.

    There's just something compelling about them. Maybe buried stories that no one wants to let out? Documents of the worst patients. Their cells. All compelling untold stories. And the surgeries. How inhumane- how immoral and painful were they? I have to be honest though~ Silent...

    My Painting Studio Was An Asylum Cell

    Me Too

    I would absolutely LOVE to go explore an abandoned mental asylum. Of course, I would try to get the proper permission first... Why do I want to do this? Not only because I am strange, but I love seeing the past hands on. Even if it was a dark time in our history.

    Town Farm Road

    A lot of towns around New England each have a "town farm road" which leads to (not surprisingly) the town farm, which was the compassionate alternative to an asylum. Basically, from what I understand, (I've only been inside one of them) they had some staff there, but mainly...

    I Want That Thrill

    Just to experience feelings of any kind.  That would be great!  What if I expereinced something that people rarely do?  Sure, most likely nothing will happen, but what if??  Just thinking about it sends a thrill up my spine.

    Why Are So Many Members Of This Group Women?

    It's like jail, I want to see what it's like to be IN there, firsthand. Although, I doubt I would like it very much. That doesn't stop me. I want to see it with my own eyes, experience it, revel in the passion of being alive - in a mental asylum. I've considered even 'going...
