Yeah, that's actually what it was back in the twenties. Creepy eh? Found this off on the side of a highway near Point Pleasant, West Virginia and had to go investigate. If you ever happen to be in the area, I'd recommend a stop. It's quite interesting. Apparently they're not as concerned about public safety there as they are in California, because there weren't any signs or fences or anything to keep people out of the ancient crumbling insane asylum...
