Haunted Halls

Uploaded: October 23, 2011


I recently toured the HH Richardson Complex in Buffalo, which was designed in the 1870's. This was once an "insane asylum"; the wards housed mental patients until the mid-1970s. It is currently unoccupied.. This is a shot of a hallway in which patients were housed... I often imagine that some 'spirits' remain. The exterior of this building is truly something to behold, it was designated an historic landmark in 1986.
Happy Halloween to all!
