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.
I love this site the pics and the comments on them are awesome! As I was a patient in the eighties (stupid drunken crap I pulled cutting, etc.) this site has inspired me to wite a story thanx for the facts I couldn't find a contact link so I leave this comment here.
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!
I recall the Ladd school from the early 1970's. my grandmother worked and lived there in an apartment on the grounds. this was a sad and depressing place for many unfortunate souls. My grandma was named Jennifer Lee Bvtler.
WAIT... i thought this was a home for kids that have behavioral issues??? what a morgue doing there?

is it true that police guard the hospital? if so why? i mean whats the reason for it
Be careful on the insides of the buildings. There is a lot of asbestos, a lot of contaminated IV tubing as well which were used on the patients. There have been air samples done of the area which picked high counts of Radon and contaminated construction metals as well. I would be careful, as it is not worth picking up an airborne contaminant just to see the place. The state police and Suffolk county police patrol there regularly. Also, there are still many deep wells which are contaminated and are uncovered. Be careful you don't fall in. Finally the EPA did a lot of research on the bugs and whatever nighttime moths or animals that frequented the area, and those who were affected had photo phobia. Not sure of the cause of that. Be careful around the contaminated construction metals, as they can cause an air borne type of meningitis which is dangerous. So honestly, my thoughts would be to not enter the buildings and I would stay off the property. I had a list of all the contaminants at the site only because that is the type of work I do, most of them were low, the higher counts were the infectious fertilizers on the property.
Creepy? yes, but an important part of how we got to be the person, the soul we are today.

Thank you so much Mott's. P.S. It's important we take on and get to see things of a dim past to help us reccollect what we have today.
this girl died at the peak of World War I. must've been haunting for her to live her last few years seeing as germany was pushing through the french countryside around this time.
