This Creepy School In North Carolina Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing

In 1909, Stonewall Jackson Manual Training and Industrial School opened as a home for troubled youth. The crimes and ‘troubles’ of the youth generally included minor scrapes with the law and issues at school. The boys were sent here for crimes and injustices that would today result in suspension or even a slap on the wrist.
