Sad to here from local friends and family that this building is no more. I used to work at marshfield scrap and steal and spent many a hour in this building and re-searching it. I was doing some digging today to figure out its current status only to find this.
This building was of much interest to me. Tortured souls galore in this joint let me tell yah.
I have tried to dig up as much FACT as i could about this place over the last ten years. Not much is still known about it. But given what we know about asylums of the early 1900's i can safely say nothing really good happened here.
Many of the local kids used to party in this building.
There is a barn across the street where they used to shuttle the wacko's to work. there still is /was a tunnel that ran from the asylum to the barn. There where two entrances to this tunnel. My friend who still works at marshfield scrap and steal assures me the tunnel is still there and both entrances are still flooded to this day with 3 feet of water.
Rumor had it one of the wacko's hung him self from the Barns peek.
I think this is the one that ghost hunters did a show on, I think they are the last ones to get into the buildings before they were demolished. They did pick up some evp's and had some personal experiences....they said it was haunted.
