lost souls......no one will ever know their true stories....Sad and scary how this could happen
In 1995, Willard Psychiatric Hospital was closed down. While clearing out the building, a collection of over 400 suitcases was discovered in the attic. These suitcases belonged to patients that had been admitted to Willard between 1910 and 1960. Sadly, these patients never got the chance to leave Willard and when they passed on, their belongings were dumped in the attic, and they were buried in a nameless cemetery across the road. Each suitcase symbolises a life discarded and completely forgotten about, just as the patients were when they were deemed unfit for society and locked away. The suitcases and their contents can be viewed here.
Interesting...yet very sad
