This Creepy Asylum in Texas Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing

Most people would never dare to venture inside an abandoned asylum, simply because the overwhelming negative energy within tells a tale of horrific tragedy, torture, and indescribable suffering. With that said, I’d like to mention that I’ve found conflicting information about the prior function of this building, with some reports saying it used to be a mental health facility. If those reports paint an accurate picture, this empty building in San Antonio represents the lives of the numerous people that came here for treatment, only to endure deplorable conditions and highly questionable forms of therapy.

I’d also like to add that the San Antonio State Hospital, just a few miles from this abandoned building, is still at its original site and very much functioning as a mental health facility.

These photos and videos below, taken by Nitram242, only show what remains of the asylum, and we can only imagine what those walls would say if they could talk.
