If You Step Inside These 10 Most Haunted Asylums In The U.S., You Might Seriously Regret It

If the walls of these asylums could talk, they would speak of a gruesome and troubled past. Of course, it has never been the intention of these institutions to cause any harm. And yet, due to lack of knowledge about mental illness, the patients were often subject to prison-like conditions and treatments which seemed more like evil scientific experiments. In that regard, we are grateful for how far medical procedures have come. Asylums continue to hold a fascinating place in our country’s history, especially ones that have been around for over 100 years. Visiting these buildings today might send a chill up your spine, reminding you of the despair of the patients who have long since gone…or perhaps never quite left.
