Penhurst State Asylum

Originally known as the Eastern Pennsylvania Institution for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic, the Penhurst State Asylum became a site of deplorable and horror conditions for the mentally ill.  Although the asylum is now a Halloween house, the real horrible  is the history behind the conditions and the treatment of the patients.  Watch the NPR story and the CBS story titled “Suffer Little Children” for the real horror story behind this asylum.
