Western State Hospital, in Steilacoom ,WA, was the hospital where the frontal lobotamy was perfected...alot of screwed up research happened there. In the 30's, it was closed down, and a new hospital was built nearby. For years, the old building was left standing, and the biggest dare around was to go into the boiler room, which could only be accessed through the basement. I went in there once and couldn't stay more than 10 seconds or so. You can swear you hear screams and laughter from all around you...probably mind-games, but who knows. The structure was collapsed in on itself and a 6 foot fence erected around it.
Which is where we jump in now. Last week, myself and a couple of friends went up there at around 2:30 AM. We walked around the perimiter, then grabbed a piece of ground nearby and rolled a...eh, cigarette. We were getting ready to smoke it, and heard noise on the inside of the fence. We got up to check it out, and at the noth end , above where the boiler room is, the rubble was shifting slightly. This went on maybe 30 seconds or so, then abruptly stopped. We looked at each other, then the cyclone fence in front of us started shaking VIOLENTLY. It was a cold night, but when the fence started shaking, I swear it got freezing...like December cold. This was an average April night. We decided to get the f**k out of there REAL quick, and on the 1/2 mile hike back to my car, we all commented that it felt like we were being watched. When we got back to my car, the night felt like the normal temp. again, and all creepy feelings were gone. Before anyone says anything, we didn't get a chance to smoke our ...cigarette prior to this happening- we were all in a sober state of mind. :o

WOW Kev., that sounds interesting, exciting, and fun. But also very scary!  
It would be very nice if they had one of those in CT.
So, are you and your friends ever going to go back? And if you do, you should take some pictures or a cam-corder. Never know what you'll pick up!8)8)

I have heard a tiny bit about Western State, is it a difficult location to get to. Meaning standard access, or do you really have to be pretty careful when heading up there. Is it on a regular patrol route by the cops or not.  I would like any details you could send my way.  I am looking for places to investigate in the washington area.
Thanks
Raevun
I love to find the scary stuff. It makes my piercings tingle.

I want to know exactly how I get into this place. I went before but couldn't find the building.  Any info would be great. I want to bring a camera and a camcorder to record what happens when me and my friends go. I will post what happens.

 I was born and grew up in the Tacoma area...  I have many times with friends been there myself.  I have had bad vibes from hell there too!! You do feel the hairs up on the back of your neck as you walk away,, We always felt watched. Terrible things went on in that place, You feel it ! A heaviness or oppressiveness you feel the instant you are on the grounds.. I live up north now.. You should go there with equipment, something would most likely show up !!!!!!   Let us know  g/l
