There’s Something Truly Terrifying About This Abandoned Insane Asylum

This grand Victorian structure may look like the remains of a once-beautiful mansion, but this sprawling, abandoned complex in Ovid, New York was actually the site of the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane.

Thousands of mentally ill individuals lived and died in this now-abandoned hospital. What it looks like now is absolutely chilling.

Annual walking tours of the property are held by the Five Points Correctional Facility, though the state is hesitant to allow tourists on the property due to safety concerns. Still, this remarkable structure stands as a reminder of the past.
