9. You never see photos showing how small this upstairs area is...

11. The spiral goes to something that feels very light house-ish...

17. The cemetery had graves that were just stones, not even numbers on them...

18. I'm guessing patients who had families with money actually got their name on the stone...

This is just amazing. The fire hose reminds me of the one in the Shining remake, though, I'm afraid it's going to move! The pictures are beautiful. <3

Was actually going to make a "Shining" reference myself! I get the same feeling when I see #15... Kind of expecing blood to come seeping out from under the door or something.

Very intriguing, thanks for sharing.

I suppose its just sitting there, empty.
I would love to see that converted to artist studios or something other than decay or the wrecking ball.

I would rather be buried under a completely blank headstone than thought of as a number by anyone who traipsed by.

Beautiful building. Too bad it can't be adaptively re-used somehow.

2 other ones in the complex are now condos. I would imagine if they are successful the other buildings will be reused as well.

Utterly beautiful. It doesn't yet look abandoned, more like shabby.

If this is the place I think it is, I am quite jealous. My sons and I have been trying to get up the gumption/time to go explore it for many years now. Thanks for the pictures!

It's super easy and no one seemed to care we were there. Give it a shot.

It looks like a really calm and lovely place. I am so enamored of the architecture and the light, especially the staircase and the top floor. Wonderful.
