This place was so full of history and information; really gives you a close-up look at the establishment that supported this small town for decades. I wish I had more time, but I'm definately going back!

Very informative and fascinating .. our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history of the asylum. I would definitely go back and would recommend it to anybody who is interested in the history of mental health and how it has progressed over the years.
