The Remains Of This Abandoned Connecticut Hospital Will Haunt Your Dreams
Opened in 1904 to house the mentally ill, the Norwich State Hospital closed its doors in 1996. It may have begun as a single building hosting 95 patients, but by 1930 the property had expanded to include over twenty buildings with more than two thousand patients! But this collection of buildings, which once housed violent patients and those found guilty of crimes by insanity, is now completely abandoned. Check them out!

Norwich State Hospital isn’t the only facility that was left in ruins. The Seaside Sanatorium is another haunting example of forgotten facilities. If you visit, be careful and make sure to adhere to any ‘No Trespassing’ signs.
