Central State





Have you heard of the show Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel?  It's great for those who enjoy some spooky history, but it's also hilarious to listen to the three male hosts interact (they pretty much just shout out "dude" and "bro" whenever something happens).

Being a fan of the show, I couldn't pass up the abandoned mental institution, Central State Hospital, in the area.  It's been closed since 1994.  A medical history museum is the only part of the property that's still in operation.  I didn't actually go inside of the hospital.  Part of me wanted to but decided not to after watching a teenage boy bolt from the building.

Are you a ghost hunter?
