Mayflower: Dolly

"Peek A boo! I see You!

This dolly might as well open up its mouth and say those words out loud. Situated in the basement of the Mayflower Hall Building, Pennhurst, this little fellow had been placed upon an old crate of some sort. I came upon him one night in 2016 as I walked through the basement, which is cut up into several rooms. This room is black so when my flashlight fell upon this doll's features, it was quite startling. Although this boy is not a relic of the original state school and Hospital, he is an interesting find in the unnerving, dark basement. 

Over the past few years, many people leave things in the Mayflower Building, mainly the paranormal groups. Perhaps they are making an offering to the spirits that seem to roam freely around this building. The old Pennhurst State School & Hospital is known for its haunted atmosphere and dire past.
