13 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned Mental Hospital Hiding In Maryland

There’s no shortage of abandoned places in Maryland and today we’re featuring one that’s among the most disturbing. This facility dates all the way back to 1911, when it opened as the Hospital for the Negro Insane of Maryland. At that time, the facility seemed promising, vowing to care for and treat African American patients who otherwise were jailed for showing psychotic tendencies. But like most asylums from yesteryear, living conditions soon deteriorated and troubling stories of abuse and neglect began to unfold.
