Pennhurst

$10.00

It’s no secret that Halloween is my absolute favorite!! I have a fascination with old, abandoned insane asylums and mental hospitals - specifically mid to late 1800’s and very early 1900’s. I decided to incorporate that fascination into this LE Halloween collection. I picked 4 of the most haunted locations in the US. I included the history behind each one! Enjoy reading!

{PENNHURST ASYLUM, PENNSYLVANIA}

With a history riddled with strong accusations of neglect, abuse and torture combined with tales of mental patients being chained to the walls, children kept for years in cribs and even murders, it’s not surprising that Pennhurst Asylum is one of the scariest places in existence. The building was opened in 1908 as a state school for the physically and mentally disabled and covered 120 acres, housing more than 10,000 patients at any given time.

The facility was often accused of dehumanization and was reported to provide no help for the mentally challenged before finally being shut down in 1986, following several allegations of abuse by residents. When Pennhurst was closed, the buildings were abandoned as they were with patients’ belongings strewn about and medical equipment left to rot.

Several reputable ghost hunter groups have visited Pennhurst Asylum, where they documented spooky audio recordings, sudden changes in temperature and the unexplained movement of objects throughout the grounds. Spine-chilling recordings of voices exclaiming: “Go away!”, “I’ll kill you!” and “Why won’t you leave?” seem tame when compared to other reports which include various objects being hurtled across the room, visitors being physically pushed and multiple EVPs.

PSA: Polish 'M polish is made in small batches by human hands. Not machines. I try my very best to duplicate each batch but slight variations CAN occur. I am at the mercy of my suppliers and if materials change on their end, it's nearly impossible to get the same exact match from batch to batch.
