My School Used to Be A Mental Institution




Sometimes I wonder about that, wandering the halls there I think about who used to walk those halls. My school consists of more than one campus. There are three campuses I believe. The main one is not the former mental institution. My current Math class is at the former hospital for the mentally insane. I find it kinda cool actually. I am just like that though. It fascinates me.

I walked in the doors for the first time and well, it looks exactly like a hospital. I pass a nurses station and walk down the white halls to my classroom. Interesting eh? It's affiliated with the same doctor who ran one of the most haunted buildings in Illinois. Ever heard of the Bartonville Insane Asylum? If not, you need to look it up. It's pretty freaky. I love ghost stories though. This one tops the list. My school is NOT this building obviously but the doctor affiliated with both hospitals is one and the same. The spooky pics in my post are the haunted Bartonville Insane Asylum. It's just incredible looking. You can youtube it too. Kids break in, spray paint and otherwise vandalize it, but it's still a great story and a historic landmark in Illinois.

Sandi, I swear that this looks like the place from the movie "Silence of the Lambs."

Have I heard of it? I've been in it! It's 10 miles from my house!! My aunt was a dental assistant there. My cousin was a patient.

i work in a mental hospital and i must say that even if it is not literally a school for students, i still consider it a school where i learn not mathematics or science but stories about life and how lessons can be extracted from them

I will look up that Silence of the Lambs thing. Sounds kinda cool if it does resemble it. I am a horror movie fan. I admit it. Middle Age Woman ( I don't think I know your first name) that is so cool! So if you live close to it I wonder if you are used to it. lol I just love staring at it whenever I drive by. I love spooky looking places. And Mckhoii I feel that way about a nursing home I used to work at. I loved listening to the stories they told.

You should Google it, it's haunted as sh*t!! They've done television shows there. There are hidden cemeteries... My girlfriend has her art studio right across the parking lot in the back. She sees "things" in the windows all the time. They want to make it a hotel. I would never stay there! AAAH!
