Mental Hospitals are creepy to say the least, as you probably have saw in the feature film Shutter Island. But what if I said this one was for children. Elmcrest Mental hospital was opened in Portland, CT in 1942 and was built around the historic childhood mansion of Elizabeth Jarvis Colt. Not only did this site host In-Patient help but also an on campus school for the youth patients. In 1998 a patient was killed while being restrained by an employee and the final chapter on this historic location ended in 2003. Today the campus remains untouched but be warned is patrolled heavily by security.
