Cemetery Of The Insane

History and information about Cemetery of the insane.

Surrounded by a pine forrest in the middle of nowhere is this cemetery that was used for patients that died in a nearby asylum. Patients stayed in the asylum their whole lives without any contact with family or friends.  The institution buried 1750 patients here between 1921 and 1981, men only… Almost all have the same graves with a concrete cross, a small name plaque, date of birth and death. Abandoned, forgotten and left to nature.
