Most Haunted New England Asylums

 Images of Worcester State Hospital - A Closed New England Insane Asylum

Here are some great asylum photos of the most haunted asylums in New England from our friends at the Boston Phoenix.

The American Horror Story: Asylum inspired story covers the following haunted asylums that may or may have not inspired Briarcliff Manor:

Worcester State Hospital - Worcester, MA
Danvers State Hospital - Danvers, MA
Foxborough State Hospital - Foxboro, MA - Tom Brady's favorite insane asylum
Medfield State Hospital - Medfield, MA  - Film Location of Shutter Island 
Fernald State School - Waltham, MA - MIT researchers fed subjects radioactive breakfasts
Metropolitan State Hospital - Waltham, MA
Belchertown State School - Belchertown, MA

Which insane asylum inspired Briarcliff Santiarium?  Come back later for our breakthrough reporting...


  1. You might want to look into Waverly Hills Sanatorium, but I believe it is a motley of different Asylums around the Us and a merging of several different stories.

  2. I've never heard a place so scary; I thought that the person who told me was actually just fooling around and telling Most Haunted Stories. Until I met someone who encountered 'something' sinister there, or I would rather say naughty, judging by what 'it' did not very long ago.
