Facts

Byberry Mental Hospital is located on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Byberry was first constructed in 1906 and opened its doors to its first patient in 1907. It began its humble begginings as a work farm for the mentally ill but between 1910 and 1920 construction of a large asylum was begun and completed. As asylum popularity grew through out the country by the mid 1930's, Byberrys population quickly expanded and with it came tales of patient abuse and neglect. Insufficient funds left the aslyum in disrepair and patients wound up unclothed, starved, and sleeping in raw sewage filled hallways. Many patients were forced to live huddled in decrepid, dingy rooms with no socialization or supervision. Every mental institution nightmare you can imagine came true. "Padded cells, restraining devices, solitary confinement, beatings by brutal warders and violent inmates, lobotomies and electric shock " were just some of the horid treatments used. Byberry became known as a "real life house of horrors" as murder , suicide, and brutallity reigned.

Finally, in 1990, state authorities were forced to close the doors of Byberry after a thorough investigation advertised the despicable living conditions within Byberrys' walls. Yet, its dark history continued on and remains to this very day. The crumbling buildings that once housed hundreds of mentally insane patients and the subterranean tunnels that connected them were left vacant and forgotten. Until now.

Hauntings

There are a multitude of horror stories surrounding Byberry. After it closed it became a magnet for all sorts of unwelcomed visitors– thiefs, vagrants, gangs, satanic cults, and possibly former inmates in search of shelter (less mentally ill patients were tossed to the street after Byberry closed). The miles of catacombs beneath the abandoned asylum have also given rise to some very creepy stories. One freakishly scary urban legend concerns a former mentally, violent patient who reportedly still lurks the tunnel below, hiding in wait, weilding a large knife, to slice the throats of any unsuspecting explorer that should cross his path. It is also said that a gang of satanic occultists have taken refuge in the delapitated building. The satanic rituals that are said to take place here have possibly opened up a door to hell within these walls as growling sounds and bodily welts and scratches have been reported.So take caution should you adventure in at night , ghosts are not the only thing lying in wait.
