A few pictures of Pennhurst this past fall
Pennhurst State School and Mental Hospital opened in 1908 and closed in 1986. What was intended to be a society for people with mental and physcial handicaps was a failure.
With over 25 buildings, Pennhurst is a huge complex. Today the sad remains are a testament of the failings of Pennhurst and the remembrance of the precious children it once held.

With the vivid colors of autumn and the crisp pungent air, the catwalk at Pennhurst is hauntingly beautiful. This picture depicts the walkway leading into the parking lot between the Quaker Building (left) and the Mayflower Hall Building.
Pennhurst is located in Spring City, Pa and is currently being used as a haunted attraction.

Saturday night (Sept 27, 14) proved to be a great night for ghost hunting in the Mayflower Building. The evening started out with a paranormal element when a co-worker heard a child giggling on the 1st floor of Mayflower. The 2nd floor seemed darker than usual. Warm and humid, the hallway had short burst of icy air. Orbs and hazy lights were showing up in pictures.
As I stood in the main hallway, staring into the common or day room, I saw a man and woman standing near a chair. They were talking quietly. On the top of the woman’s head, a large bun was neatly attached. As I watched, the bun began to loosen as it was gently pulled upward until the hair was starting to break from its hold. It was as if a hand had grabbed it and was unraveling her hair. The knot stretched further upward. Then she screamed, grabbing her head. “Oh my God, something is touching me.”
The Mayflower Building is part of the Pennhurst Asylum - during the Halloween Season. Pennhurst, formally a state institute for the mental and physically handicapped (1908-1986) is located in Spring City, Pa.
If you can't visit Mayflower, check out my book Ghosts of Mayflower: A Pennhurst Haunting - available on Amazon.com, Kindle and Nook.
This picture is the rear side of the Mayflower Hall Building, Pennhurst in Spring City, Pa. If you are not familiar with Pennhurst, this state and mental hospital closed its doors in 1986 after an 80 year reign. Parts of the property are now being used for a Halloween attraction. The Mayflower Hall is used as a ghost hunt. This picture was taken in the off season, when no one was in the building. In the 2nd floor window, two faces peer out into the yard. These ghostly apparitions, a woman and a little girl are often sighted together on the 2nd floor. The strange thing is - this building was a male ward.

I bought this after visiting Pennhurst and meeting the author still working inside the Mayflower. I learned so much about the history of the buildings I had walked through I couldn't put it down! I look forward to going back to Pennhurst and using the information (with caution) Tamera provides through her stories. Definitely sparked further interest to investigate, work at Pennhurst, and learning about its horrifying and sad history.
