One thing to note about a few of these pictures is that I found them thanks to the amazing photographers on Flickr. Unfortunately, some of these asylums do not have very many (or any pictures) I can use. But, I did not want to leave out some of the more creepy ones just because I couldn’t find pictures. I did, however, find a pretty creepy video about one of these places that I wanted to share.

The thing about creepy hospitals in Indiana is they are either abandoned, used as a haunted attraction, or remodeled/re-opened for use as something else. Take, Norman Beatty Mental Hospital, for example which was converted into the Westville Correctional Center in the late 70’s. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to go to a prison that used to be a really old mental hospital. The only question left to ask you guys is this – are you planning to visit any of these places or do you just regrets reading this article?
