Northern State Hospital (Part 3)

This is the third part of my series of posts on Northern State Hospital, this post featuring the cemetery, which I found to be a very sad place, the outbuildings and the cannery.

The Cemetery

The Outbuildings

 The Cannery


  1. the grave markers

    i assume a patient number
    their initials and perhaps a thoughtful penny to mark the year

    I think saddest is that there was no family left or no one who knew or cared to do better.

    1. Immensely sad. The whole place is sad but the cemetery most of all. We did wonder about the pennies, since most of the graves had them.


I have had to increase the security on this blog because of the flood of spam that has been coming through recently. I apologize for the extra burden this puts on those who visit the blog but am sure they will understand.
