PENNHURST ASYLUM GHOST BOX INTERACTION MAYFLOWER
Do you believe in ghosts? A nurse who gives invisible shots, a girl who likes to dart into corners and a man who still sits in the common room are just three of the spirits haunting the Pennhurst Asylum in Spring City, Pennsylvania. How do I know that? I have spent a Halloween season working in the Mayflower building, 2nd floor and have witnessed the paranormal activity first hand. Twenty-five years ago, Pennhurst State School and Mental Hospital was closed down due to patient abuse. Today Pennhurst has been turned into a Halloween attraction. I took a job as an orderly working in the Mayflower building, one of the most spiritually active of all the buildings. People are fascinated with Pennhurst and want to know more of its past and its present. Intrigued, I decided to do my own research. Here is what I discovered.
