Pennhurst State School and Mental Hospital

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.
