My father was a staff MD on the grounds of CI State Hospital and I grew up there from 1964 through 1968 (staff housing). As a young boy it was a wonderful place for a kid to ride bikes and enjoy the outdoors. We (my siblings and I) played baseball on the grounds and I learned how to play golf on its nine hole golf course. I have many fond memories of the place, unlike the patients that lived there. I still feel for those that lived and died at that hospital and many are buried on the grounds at it little cemetary which still exists today.
Man I'm glad I found your site but it's really giving me the creeps...when I was in the California Conservation Corps I was stationed in San Bernadino and we were based in an abandoned state asylum, lock rooms, bard on windows, and the place was haunted big time! if ya wanna hear more about it email me at dig_a_pony101@yahoo.com
