Danvers State Hospital Series: Part 1
If you’ve followed me for a little while now, you may remember when we discussed the “haunted” land a former mental hospital resides on high atop a hill in my hometown.
The topic was among the the most popular I’ve covered, and researching the history and feeling the Spirit move through me really awakened a passion in me.
To be a voice for those who couldn’t fully advocate for themselves has been a major calling in my life. It’s why I have worked with both adults and children with disabilities and behavioral challenges for so many years. It’s why I hold degrees in education and psychology.
Its no surprise to me then that I feel the same responsibility toward the deceased.
What initially started as a fun project discussing local hauntings evolved into a powerful realization for me. When someone passes in a place of confusion and pain, without anyone to honor them and their memory, their soul deserves an advocate. A voice for the dead.
Please enjoy this brief graphic history of Danvers State Hospital. I will be posting more about this series later, and look forward to sharing my insights with you as to the energy and and spirits that still exist there so prevalently.
