Also Known As THE WORCESTER LUNATIC Asylum. It opened in 1833, but by the 1870s, it had become inadequate for the state's needs. It was proprosed that contrsuction start on a brand new asylum - a grouping of much smaller, decentralized buildings. However, this was rejected, and a new, massive building was erected. It was designed by architect Ward P. Delano. Completed in 1877, the total cost reached well over one million dollars.
A massive fire at Worcester State Hospital on July 22, 1991, destroyed almost all of the building's roof as well as the wards, save for the right most wing and the administration building. The hospital still functions as a psychiatric facility in Worcester, Massachusetts.
People have heard screams coming from the building. Could the screams be from patients who died there? It is also said that there are blood stains on the walls of the building.
