#Belchertown State School in Belchertown, #Massachusetts was…

#Belchertown State School in Belchertown, #Massachusetts was constructed in 1922 as the Belchertown State #School for the Feeble-Minded, and spans over 845 acres of land. It is said to be #haunted by the #spirits of former mental patients who were neglected and subjected to a variety of experimental, inhumane medical procedures, such as lobotomies and electroshock therapy. Over the years, living conditions at the Belchertown State School began to decline, and staff numbers began to dwindle. In 1972 a class action #lawsuit was launched against the Belchertown State School after it was discovered that patients were being #abused by caretakers, and left isolated in #deplorable conditions. In some cases, nurses were so overwhelmed by the number of patients at Belchertown that they were unable to adequately care for everyone, and many patients were left in solitary confinement for long periods of time without access to bathrooms, medical attention, or proper sanitation. Urban explorers at the #abandoned mental #asylum report witnessing apparitions, and hearing the sounds of disembodied moans, voices, whispers, footsteps, and screams. Others report witnessing heavy doors being slammed shut by themselves, and experiencing sudden cold spots and unexpected drops in temperature. Many also report feeling a strange presence, as if being watched by an unseen #entity. One popular #UrbanLegend tells of a young boy and girl who fell in #love while being treated at Belchertown State School, however due to their #MentalIllness they were forbidden from seeing each other. Despite caretakers’ efforts to keep the young couple separated, they still managed to sneak away from their dormitories at night to see each other. It’s said that even in #death, their spirits still find a way to meet late at night, and #paranormal investigators often report encountering the spirits of the young couple, who are seen embracing. Belchertown State School remained open until 1992, and was added to the National Register of #Historic Places in 1994.

Old Hill #Cemetery in Newburyport, #Massachusetts was…

Old Hill #Cemetery in Newburyport, #Massachusetts was established in 1729, and is sometimes referred to as the Old Hill Burial Ground, or Sawyer Hill Burial Ground. The location is said to be #haunted by seven members of the Pierce family who were buried in a large #crypt, which has been desecrated and vandalized several times since it’s construction in 1863. In 1925 a group of young men were caught breaking into the #tomb after undressing members of the Pierce family and arranging their corpses around a small table, as if playing a game of cards. According to police records the teenagers were apprehended by members of the Newburyport #Police Department when they were found dancing around the cemetery dressed in the Pierce family’s stolen clothing. In 1985 another group of teenagers were caught breaking into the Pierce family tomb, where they confessed to pouring #beer down the throats of the deceased family members, as well as committing other acts of vandalism. Again in 2005 a man was arrested at Old Hill Cemetery after severing the head of one of the corpses inside the Pierce family tomb. #Paranormal investigators and those who visit the old cemetery at night report witnessing apparitions and #ShadowFigures that disappear into the darkness, in addition to feeling a strange presence, as if being watched by an unseen #entity. Others report hearing the sounds of disembodied voices and screams, as well as whispers and scratching noises coming from within the old Pierce family tomb.
