There is this Abandoned Insane Asylum in my hometown, San Antonio. I had an uncle that died there. He was a patient and died of a brain tumor. It's been closed for years. My best friend and other teens like to go and have themselves a scare. He says that he really does think it's haunted but has never seen anything for himself. he does say that it's really creepy though. Everything was left there. Equipment, documents,... He went last halloween. he said that they opened an old elavator door and inside were all these papers thrown around. He picked up one of them and said it was a record for some lady that was admitted there. He put back and didn't touch anything after that. I told him to let me know when he'll be going back. I want to get some video and voice recordings of the place. Another friend of mine said that it is definitely haunted. He's a volunteer firefighter and went there on a call with one other guy. He said they got lost in the place and saw lots of crazy things. He said he saw shadow people. He called shadows that looked like midgets. He said it was terrifying for him and that he'd never go back. i was wondering if anybody else knows about this place. I'll see if I can google up any info.

Hi,
You will get farther in your searches if you use alterntive nomenclature for "Abandoned Insane Asylum...".

Try this site  http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online...s/MM/smmun.html.

It is a professional journal with an abundance of information and probably includes the one you speak of.

If you can send/post pictures do so.  But don't do it drunk...If you tresspasss and are drunk it's dangerous.  

Most professionals, like myself, in the field (psychology) are able to get information because we know how the buildings were once named.

Good luck and let me know.   Where I live now I have haunted castles, Roman forts, Stonehenge, Woodhenge and on and on.  

If you go back take pictures.  I won't be traveling in the states for a long time (my husband is a full time International Lawyer and I am a full time researcher and Solitary Witch.  My husband finally met or saw the ghost that has been with me for a long time...it's funny because he is not only in law but is a scientist....so many things.  He is brilliant and we will travel around with my camera once the University is out in May/June.  He is busy.

In Scotland, about 8 hours from me, Halloween  or Samhain (pronounced Sow- wen) is our higest holiday.  It's our New Year and up there (Scotland) they have a huge celebration.  You can probably catch it on TV.  On the History or Discovery  channel...I 'll find out

Be well and stay safe...I be checking in.

they really left all the documents and instruments and stuff?  dontgetit.gif why would they do that?  dontgetit.gif  i mean, aren't those kind of documents highly confidential and stuff?  dontgetit.gif  but it would be interesting to get to know some people through documents. i'm always interested in what do people in the asylium see or hear.  grin2.gif

It's obviously very un-known 'cause I googled it and got up a bunch of message boards asking pretty much the same question.

Ok. Well Ive actually been to the Insane Asylum in San Antonio. Ive been a few times. It took me awhile to work up the courage to go until last halloween. I was with a few friends and we went and bought a few flash lights. When we got there, there was some other kids there also, but they got to scared so they left. We were kind of scared that the cops would bust us because we heard stories from kids at school going and getting caught.
We took our chances. There are 3 buildings. All look so trashed. Yes there was paper everywhere. It looked like torn up dictionary pages..and files I supose. We didnt actually read them. It was "tagged" everywhere from previous kids. We went the the second building where we heard a story about some "unknown" force keeping you from going past the second floor. It wasnt true. There was old elevator doors and we looked down..it was kind of creepy. There seemed to be bathtubs and broken toilets in most of the rooms. I didnt see anything left behind though. We looked in every single room. My friends from school told me there would be like padding on the walls and face masks and all sorts of things. All I saw was some old matresses and cans and junk people left behind.
It was really scary. We were only there for about 5 minutes when our new flashlights were going out. We ended up with one working..and went onto the roof where there was a fire escape. I also heard stories of that same fire escape being a slide that they transported "bodies" because they didnt fit on the stairs. Stupid because there was totally an elevator. I also heard that the first small building is the place where they burned the dead bodies.
If you walk in the feild past everything you will come across some wooden crosses. I heard its where people had been buried.
All in all, even if it isnt haunted, it looks and feels damn scary. I loved it. It scared the sh** out of me and probibily anyone else who has gone.

and the story i heard is that it closed because the doctors went insane themselves and killed everyone?
i dont know.

but yeah thats my expierience. i would love to go again.
its located off of highway 37 and southton rd behind the TYC bulding.

yea i went there last night. It was a scary place we went with like 4 to 5 people. You got to watch out when you go theres a neighbor that protects the property that has a shotgun. It was just okay you know seeing what it is and everything, but when we were walkin we saw a figure in the bush and all of a sudden a girl screamin came out of no where 4 times they scream same tone, same length, and same volume. It did not crack or anything. Yea it freaked me out.

Also i read that if you go bring some protection, theres people that will hi jack your car, rob you, and other things. i didnt know this till after i went so next time i go im bringin somethin in case.

Ahhhh... SAN ANTONIO... what a beautiful place!

Would anyone know the name of the Hospital? I've gone to San Antonio nearly every other weekend to go play, camp and hike and rafting.

The San Antonio Railroad tracks where the school bus full of children who died is a fake.

Yea, it always good to bring some protection, but if you're certified, you can pack your toys like these bad boys.

Might think about "scouting" a place like that first....IMO....especially if you have "squatter-issues"....an ounce of prevention, right?

Hey there guys. I was hanging out with my friend Angie and sis-in-law Bo yesterday. we got to talking about the asylum and ghost tracks and set out to find them. we new were the tracks were and heard that the asylum was close by. after a bit of searching we found it. we didn't get off our car. just parked and stared at it for a while. then somebody from the house across the street shot off their shotgun. To scare us a away i suppose. Well it freakin worked! lol anywho. We went back home and Angie start doing a bit of research on the web. when googling the subject, she found this thread. I told about this site and my screen name so when she saw it she called me right away. WE're making plans to go back there soon. I'm taking a digicam and hopefully a voice recorder. I'll make sure to post something up even if we don't catch anything just so you guys can get a glimpse of the place. toodles.
