Hidden Places: Abandoned and Haunted Sanatorium   17 comments

Well, it’s creepy enough to be haunted, although I only saw signs of teenage transgressions (i.e. graffiti) when I visited the Seaside Sanatorium in Waterford, CT. It was built in the 1930s as a convalescent home for young children suffering from Tuberculosis, and shut down in the 1990s.

  1. Wow, I would like to have a place like that to visit near where I live!

  2. I looked at these photos and started hearing the Metallica song Sanitarium in my head.

  3. Wow, I wish there places like this in my area to photograph.
    Just a tip for all your urban decay adventures, wear a respirator or dust mask, lead paint and asbestos are present in most of the old buildings.

  4. These are fabulous captures ! Love what you’ve done with them.

  5. Great series; this subject matter is right up my alley. Nice find and great shots.

  6. Great photographs, haunted or not it at least provides for some great photo ops.

  7. Reblogged this on Beyond Reason and commented:
    Likely will never visit this place for an investigation, looks like a cool place to check out.

  8. This location is a personal favorite of mine and you have done it justice with a great series of shots. For anyone interested in how this looked prior to its decay – check online for the PDF book (free) “Christmas in Purgatory” – an inside look at asylums before de-instutionalization.
    Thanks for the post.

  9. I love them! This place reminds me of the old asylum in my town, of which I took a series o photographs last weekend.

  10. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!
