A history of death and suffering, A mental asylum, And a doctor who may have performed experiments on people. This place has it all when it comes to the creepiness factor-Haunted or not.

I would skip a visit though. Great thread and rep.

I think I will skip the trip. It's fascinating to see all these abandoned places.

One other place, near where I grew up, was looked at, by paranormal investigators.

Free tickets?! I'd go, lol.. I have always been strangely fascinated by the history of old mental asylums.. Even places in the U.S., where people could be committed for absolutely no reason other than someone brought them there, they did not speak English, or maybe they were homeless.. Just absolutely horrifying... Can't recall the name of it, but there was a documentary about a mental asylum- years + years after it had been shut down and abandoned, they went thru & found all the luggage of the people who had been committed- stored in the basement. Unopened, unreturned..Their whole lives packed & preserved in these suitcases.. Most of the people were never allowed to leave, they died and were even buried there. Just regular people...someone who today might only need a prescription for prozac, if that.. It was beyond tragic.. Don't get me started on lobotomy!

How about living in one? I've been there, 3 years ago when it was still only half-renovated. The old wings were were untouched and displayed all their Victorian spooky glory!

And as for lobotomy, I once had to take care of a WWII vet who had had in the early 1950's a leucotomy---the surgical operation of cutting some of the nerve fibers in the frontal lobes of the brain (as opposed to lobotomy, or incision(cutting) into the prefrontal lobe of the brain). It was described a having a miniature egg beater to the front of the brain. He had two small forehead scars. Nice guy, very bland.
