Forest Haven Asylum

This was once one of the most state of an art facilities within the US before it went down in flames and became known as one of the most deadly institutions.
This facility was well known for its death an abuse long before it closed. The Facility opened in 1925. It was hailed as a forward-thinking institution, part of a progressive movement sweeping Europe and North America at the time. A lack of funding and stifling of newer treatments kept Forest Haven from evolving with modern medicine. When the District began suffering from its mid-century financial crisis, all education and recreation programs at the facility were terminated.
