This post is just a photo gallery because I couldn’t give any less fucks about this place. Here’s a brief history: Originally called by the prosaic name of the New Jersey Sanitarium for Tuberculosis Diseases, it eventually became the Glen Gardner Sanitarium, and lastly, Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital. It opened in 1907 to treat tuberculosis before branching out to other diseases, briefly leading the name change of the New Jersey Hospital for Chest Diseases. In 1977 it became a psychiatric hospital, and was used that way until its closure in 2012. Parts of the campus are still active, so don’t read that last sentence as your permission to drive up there in your shitty, 95 Camry, dick around for a few hours and pig out on Dunkin Donuts. What. Here are photos:
