Elmcrest Mental Hospital



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.

  1. Is the hospital hard to get into because of the security?

    3. I was there twice in 1987 and 1988 as a teen. EVERYONE was put on psych meds which enabled insurance payment due to being labeled. The environment made us crazier than we started. Spooky place.

    2. I was sexually abused by another patient there. I was 13. I told on him and they restrained me just like the kod who died and put me in a padded room. I couldnt breathe i could barely cry and no one came for me for hours. I have ptsd 30 years later remembering being in that bag. Lucky im alive but it basically taught me my first sexual encounter, a rape, was excusable and apparently my own fault

    3. You will shut down the page for posting of ElmCrest property? You're so tough and convincing, but you post as anonymous. Make a fist, now punch yourself

    4. Honestly how on earth does it negatively impact you if someone explores an abandoned building? He isn't defacing it or taking anything from it. Also, it's not like anyone else is using it.

  11. Health insurance is a necessity for everyone nowadays no matter where they live or what they do. All over the world medical costs are on the rise and falling ill is something that everyone goes through.
