Danvers State Lunatic Asylum is probably one of the most notoriously haunted and intriguing places on earth. High atop Hawthorne Hill, overlooking the scenic countryside, sits an incomprehensibly massive structure. Danvers has long been termed a brutally fearsome castle and perverted holy place of despair and destruction. Nicknamed "The Witches Castle on the Hill"

Continuous Bath Time - Continuous baths were one form of hydrotherapy used in mental hospitals beginning in the early 1900s. The technique was derived from German spa treatments, where people would spend from a few hours to a few days surrounded by flowing water. This treatment was used to induce relaxation in excited or agitated patients, as well as to relieve pressures from bed sores and other physical ailments.
Abandoned and Haunted Mental Institution: Why is it that every time someone on one of those "ghost hunter" shows actually hears/sees something, they completely freak out and want to leave? Isn't that why they were there in the first place?
I'd lost the fight. No I wasn't dead, but I have a feeling I'm about to be. I learned two things during that fight. One: the masked figure turned out to be John. Two: He and Sabrina are just as good a team as me and Damien. Damien. Oh gosh I hope he escaped. John drags me down a hallway and I swear I'm in a hospital. Sabrina pulls open a door and John pushes me inside. The door slams shut and John secures me to a chair.
In 1842, Dr. Samuel Hitch noticed the terrible treatment that poor Welsh mental patients were receiving in English asylums. He drummed up public interest in building a new lunatic asylum to serve Northern Wales, and in 1848 Denbigh Asylum opened its doors. It operated until 1995. Since then, its future has been somewhat uncertain.
