Abandoned Asylums

Season 3 – Episode 8

This week, Amelia and Beth are talking all about the history of asylums in New England and the United States. Once they cover the whole history of why asylums were built, and a wrap up of why TB is an awful disease, they give you some of the scary stories of frightening experiences people have had in the years since the asylums closed. Listen in as the ladies talk about The New Hampshire Asylum for the Insane (or The New Hampshire State Hospital), Undercliff Sanitorium in Meridian, Connecticut, The Plymouth County Hospital in Massachusetts, Seaside Sanitorium in Waterford, Connecticut. Also, they debate the merits of pumpkin pie vs. blue hubbard squash pie, and schedule a duel to decide which is the best girl scout cookie.
