Its from the mysterious quality of abandonment that I think inspired some film makers to make movies of ghosts in abandoned asylums and schools, etc. Their very creepy.

Good work. Very interesting. YouTube has videos of "Urban exorations" of abandoned homes, hotels, old mansions, etc. Very, very interesting. Good work!

This cabin was huck finns fishing hut. There was a small pond beside it where kids could try to catch goldfish with corn. A lucky catch would earn you a card saying you were a member of huck finns fishing club. I wonder if the pond survived.

I was on Ward D from 1970-1973. My parents didn't have a say in the medication regimen I was on, nor could they take me out. I was civilly committed under the new law (at the time) M.G.L. Chapter 123.

Hey you good people at opacity.us I'm a 44 year old writer when I was a younger fellow I had some drug and alcohol problems and wound up doing two stretches one month a piece (I tried to commit suicide while I was drunk and high) at Met State I swear some of the things I saw there (This was back in the early eighties) frightened me bad enough to make all my little hairs stand on end! I love this site it's giving me some good background for a story I'm writing about the place. Thanx again!
