    1. This was not an insane asylum, although very creepy in person, and people did dye, it was a sanatorium mostly housing, tb patients and a hospice type center.

      • It used to be before it was mad into apartments. I got to do an investigation before it changed and we went back after it was remodeled into apartments. it just wasnt the same.
