This is such a cool building inside and out. It's not really what you would expect inside but it's very neat. We've been here multiple times. It's cool just to look around. There's also a... more »
Want to go here sooo bad, cool place they made a horror game called "outlast" based on the facility. It's an old insane asylum, looking into it's history supposedly it had a weird basement facility in real life, and they put that in the game. The second thing is that looking into the history of the facility before the final shut down around 1960 there was a gross lack of staff and overpopulation. Which obviously would lead to some less than desirable circumstances, anyway while researching around that date there is a year between 1955-1966 where you can not find any type of information on the facility. The other cool tidbit about the game reference is they use this facility but place it on a rumored old native psychiatric hospital/reservation down south that was converted into a military base (fort lewis). Near mount massive in Colorado. I really want to look into this and see if there really was a large basement facility. I know the H. H. Richardson Complex was remodeled only a few years ago which I believe was them removing the basement facility and preparing the building to become a campus.
One of the most prominent and iconic sites in Buffalo. It is a site that everyone should see and experience that all ppl should have.
