I don’t know about you, but I would NEVER explore an abandoned insane asylum! This abandoned San Antonio Insane Asylum represents the lives of the numerous people that came here for treatment, only to endure deplorable conditions and highly questionable forms of therapy.
1These photos and videos below only show what remains of the asylum…So say that it’s haunted!
2Although very little is known about the San Antonio Insane Asylum, formally called the Southwestern Insane Asylum when it opened on April 6, 1892, it is heavily guarded by the police today.
Whether they’re trying to hide something or just protect the property, no one is entirely sure, but those who have ventured inside the walls have attested to some very strange and frightening things occurring.
3In the beginning, the hospital could only house up to 500 patients, but after renovating it and renaming it as the San Antonio State Hospital, it held almost 2,800 patients.
