Here's another door from the Weston State Hospital. Looks like someone wanted to get in... or out... really bad.
A friend just sent me an article about some police officers who played paintball inside the asylum and really messed the place up something fierce. Lovely. That was from 1999, and there was talk then about turning the asylum into a Civil War museum. I hope that's why they're fixing it up right now. Wouldn't that be awesome? I hope they keep with the same interior architecture, for the most part, though. Apparently, there is a really beautiful mural inside that is being restored. I would love to see it.
