 Friday Night Feature: Strange Doings  at an Abandoned Insane Asylum

The Philadelphia Hospital For The Mentally Ill opened in 1912. Because of unacceptable, deplorable conditions, the State of PA. took it over in 1937. The state finally closed the hospital in 1990 because of patient abuse and overcrowding. The hospital has nothing but horror stories. It was a very sad place. It held everyone from mentally ill orphans to the criminally insane. It now sits abandoned except for the weekend partiers, the urban explorers, and the ghost hunters.

I live a mile away from it and frequently explore its twenty-five buildings, seven of them being super structures, and its catacombs. They are all connected by underground tunnels. The hospitals' history is straight out of a horror film. The stories are many, some true, some not.

One in question concerns a mass grave on the grounds. It's referred to as John Doe's morgue. Another story is, a hatchet man used to chase people through the catacombs, this is true; because, that man is now in jail. More recently, clouds of mist (see photos) travel through the buildings and catacombs. I and some other people have heard many strange noises, screams, voices, and even what sounds like a train. My friends and I have seen lots of strange images too, mostly of children. I included some photos that were taken by my friend Radical-ED, that prove the mist clouds. I have to say, it is illegal to be there.
