If anyone can find you info on it, it will be Ange!
There are several in CT: Fairfield Hills(Newtown), Connecticut Valley Hospital(Middletown)*still open in most buildings*, Cedarcrest(off Berlin Tpke) *also mostly open*, there's one in Meriden but I can't remember the name....can't even get near it though, the road itself is "No Tresspassing". If you could give me a location I could get photos and history on it.

Hi guys. I'm new to this site. I've been to Undercliff several times. It is located on a private state road, and there are operating state cottages toward the beginning of the road. (I believe they house recently released sex offenders, but I'm not positive). The institution itself is up the street and towards the back. =) The easiest way to get there is to follow the directions for the Meriden Mall (691 - Lewis Ave) and exit out the back lot. Across the street is a Target. Undercliff Road is the next street over.

I haven't been down there in quite some time *moved to Manchester last summer*
Isn't there anybody hanging around watching for non-authorized vehicles?
Also, do you have any photos or EVPs? If so, I would LOVE to see or hear them.
And most of all WELCOME TO GV!! Great to meet ya!

I've never encountered anyone "patroling" for unauthorized vehicles.... however that doesn't mean that there aren't any, it might mean that I've just been really lucky. People do work at the cottages though, so I imagine it'd take a few mins before anyone realized you weren't actually an employee. =)

My great aunt used to work there while it was owned by the state and used as a school for mentally handicapped children. I spoke with my mother about that period of time and she said that everytime she was in the building it seemed "creepy" as she put it. I confirmed this with one of her old friends who had visited the building.
Before it was owned by the state it was a hospital for people with a certain illness (the name of which has slipped my mind). My mother's cousin used to tell a story about how whwen the building was converted a body was found in one of the beds, but it's head was on the floor. We don't put much credit into this as she told a lot of stories. But no one really knows what went on in the building as it is set so far back from the main road.
Today I spoke with a friend who was in the building 3 nights ago. He and a few friends got into the building and spent a while looking around. My friend says that at the foot of a staircase (he couldn't tell me which one it was) he saw a huge dog come running down the stairs at him. He was terrified out of his mind and ran. Later he returned to look for the dog or any evidence that one could be living there and found nothing.
I wouldn't suggest entering the building. The cops showed up after an hour or so of searching and being caught there would be extremely hard to explain.
I am trying to find more information but the great aunt who worked there is currently in the hospital and she doesn't speak with anyone.
