Mental Asylum in Georgia, It Was the World’s Largest Mental Hospital. Haunted Or Not? A truly creepy and scary place. When it was first opened it was known as the Georgia Lunatic Asylum. Back in 1837 Georgia lawmakers authorized a “Lunatic, Idiot, and Epileptic Asylum.” And it was built and opened in 1842. The first "patient" arrived in December 1842. They reported that he died of “maniacal exhaustion” shortly thereafter. Located in  Milledgeville Georgia, on approximately 2,000-acres. The property still echoes "with the memory of the patients who were treated and mistreated at Georgia’s state asylum". The Asylum is mostly empty and in much need of repair. The old asylum is not reported to be open to the public. There is a new section in operation called the Central State Hospital. According to OnlyInYourState.com, "This spooky asylum is one of the creepiest places in Georgia and has so much history behind it." Be sure to Like the Show's Facebook Page.
