Western State Childrens Asylum (Virginia)

Western State Children's Asylum located at the intersection of Highway 250 and 81 in Staunton VA. Google the name and read some of it's history, a fiction writer could not have written a better story for a horror movie including electroshock, strait jackets, eugenics, lobotomy's and children. Across the street is also the much smaller Adult wing of Western State Hospital which was eventually converted into a minimum security prison and currently was converted into a condo complex of all things!
