Spring City - Pennhurst State School Hospital

Pennhurst State School and Hospital was designed to house the mentally and physically disabled until reports of abuse started to rise up out of the darkness from inside.

That darkness was found to contain some of the most horrific, abusive practices that has blighted this society in recent times.

Accusations of dehumanization, of being no help to the disabled, sexual abuse, troubles with members of staff, it was eventually closed in 1986.

A report on NBC called Suffer the Little Children (This link is to the actual broadcasted programme. Some may find the images disturbing) helped to bring about the close of Pennhurst, although many that are still alive could still be suffering from the horrors they witnessed or experienced inside this pit. Others feel that Pennhurst still contains the torn and battered souls of the long deceased.
