Haunted Places in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania, the state in which I call home, is known for its fall foliage and historic sites. Little do you know that it’s also home to numerous haunted places. Over the next few months, I’m going to take you on a haunted tour of Pennsylvania.

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

Pennhurst State School and Hospital

Originally knows as the Eastern Pennsylvania Institution for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic, Pennhurst was originally built to segregate and sterilize those with disabilities. Located in Spring City Pennsylvania, the doors first opened in 1908 to its first patient–know simply as Patient Number 1.

After over 60 years, Pennhurst closed in 1986 after allegations of abuse were found to be true. This 120 acre campus was left dormant for many years, until it became a haunted attraction: Pennhurst Haunted Asylum. I don’t know about you, but this looks ridiculously scary to me!

Too far away to visit? Check out this video tour of the campus.



Sweet dreams!

        I want to sit in a haunted place… listen and observe. I just hope I wouldn’t end up with all the running, flailing, and screaming.
