Danvers State Hospital
Danvers State Hospital has been abandoned since 1992. During the 1920’s-30’s the hospital used controversial treatments such as shock therapy, various drugs, and frontal lobotomies. It may have even been the birthplace of the frontal lobotomy.
In 2006, some structures were demolished and apartment buildings were built in its place; in April 2007, the buildings and several construction trailers went up in flames. Any efforts at renovation since then have been avoided.
