Byberry State Mental Hospital

The institution began as a small work farm for the mentally ill. Soon, plans were made to turn the farm into a cottage plan asylum. Construction began on the institution in 1906. Shortly after that, it was established in 1907 as the Byberry Mental Hospital and originally followed the theory of physician Benjamin Rush that mental illness was a disease and could be cured with proper treatment, but that the mentally diseased should be kept away from normal people until they were actually cured. Many of the original patients were transferred from Philadelphia General Hospital. Philadelphia General Hospital closed in 1977. All personnel were sent to other hospitals, and patients sent to Norristown State Hospital

Re: Byberry State Mental Hospital

Is that a cremation oven in the one pic towards the last? This place creeps me out completely. I get odd feelings in my gut when I look at these pics.
'Welcome to insanity, now you are....

Re: Byberry State Mental Hospital

It is now apartments, but, I'm not sure if it is for people who need some kind of assistance with medical issues or not.

I pass by every Wednesday and Thursday when I pick up my niece from school.

I believe a lot of the patients were released onto the streets, too.

I posted some pictures from an abandoned morgue and hospital in my thread where you can post anything you want.

I didn't list the locations.

When one of my late brothers was in a mental health facility, the doctors didn't wear white jackets or scrubs, but, they had keys and laminates.

I sat next to a woman to get a beverage and she told me one of the doctors was her boyfriend. He didn't know anything about it.

She then went on to tell me she liked my hair.

I thanked her.

She liked my outfit. I thanked her.

It went on and on...the shoes, the nails, etc.
