Okay....is this an abandoned asylum? I would assume so since the 'net is lacking information....also, I believe it is spelled Munson...I got a few hits on that spelling, but no location so far.

I stand corrected. It is with the 'o'..

Here's a site with a very detailed account of the history...Have you tried checking a local library? Mine has a section on history of the area..or even contact this historical society..
