I have been there before back when it was still operating as a hospital. There is a room in the basement they showed us from the outside that is where they used to do the electroshock therapy and things of that nature, they told us that some of the ghosts were former patients that died getting treatment there. Never saw anything there as it was day time and we were not allowed to go down to the basement into that room, so not sure if there is any truth to it. But the cemetary there I got a very sad feeling standing there.

I've been there a few times. the very first time my mother drove me over there. before i even saw the building, i felt sadness and helplessness. by the time we reached the circle drive, i had tears streaming down my face. every time i've been there, i've felt as if i'm being watched. i've taken many pictures, but have never had anything paranormal show up. i do feel there are several spirits there in the main building, as well as some in the buildings surrounding them. i felt a sense of calm on the burial grounds though.

Any way to access the EVPs? I'd give a limb to hear those....

Unfortunately I don't even have access to alot of the EVPs anymore, they were saved on my old computer which is now a useless skeleton (at least until I can get a friend to extract the data from it).

There a few EVPs (or at least recordings, you can judge whether they're actually EVPs or not) here. There were some good one's on my fouled hard drive. I'll make a note to post a link to them as soon as I get them back.
*The moral of this story is always backup your data on discs*

Some of the surrounding bulidings are now being used as state offices. i work here. in the basement they still had the hooks that they used to hang corpses. no lie. and one man who works here said one of the offices was the room used to cremate ppl. its very creepy working here even with all the remodeling. strange things happen all the time that im sure have logical explanations if i dug deep enough. i just feel like we are disturbing all the ppl who used to live and got treated here.

I too would also love to tour this place. I've been there a couple times at night, and you do always feel like you are being watched. If anyone knows a legal way to get inside please contact me at Crazyfreak1989@yahoo.com Thanks!

Drove on the grounds yesterday. Does anyone know which building is still standing today? Square brick building with many windows. Could still see the blinds in some. And other windows boarded up. Thanks for any information!

The picture of center buildings at night the one with the orb infrount. That is office of the late Rev. Ben Bogia.
