Once a children's hospital, and later a facility for the mentally challenged, Seaside Sanatorium in Waterford has been abandoned for over a decade, despite its architectural pedigree and prime location. Update: We visited Seaside in April 2011.
For more than 60 years, Fairfield Hills State Hospital in Newtown was home to the mentally ill. After it was closed, it sat empty and abandoned, holding the dark secrets of its troubled residents who were long gone. Or so everyone wanted to believe.
Getting inside the abandoned sections of the Connecticut Asylum for the Insane is said to be pretty difficult.
