This is the site of the State Hospital for the Insane Cemetery. Not many people know of the existance of this cemetery. Times have changed, and cemeteries like this are no longer used. Before recent times the mentaly handicapped were sent away to huge State run mental hospitals and forgotten about by their families. In many cases patients became property of the state. In such events, the deceased were put to rest in remote cemeteries like this. A lot of history here and at the State Hospital located south of the cemetery. I encourage you to do a little history research on State run cemeteries. You may be surprised to hear of how these people were treated and forgotten about. You can drive to the cemetery, but I recommend you walk as you might see some wildlife. Wildlife preserve is west of the cemetery. Permission obtained by caretaker of the property.
