These Suitcases Found In Asylums Are A Glimpse Into A Shocking Life

The exterior of a suitcase left in what was the Willard Asylum for the Insane.

The mental hospital was located in Willard, New York.

In 1975, it was added to the National Registry of Historic Places.

The structure, left abandoned for decades, was built in 1869.

While the building was left to decay, some of the things inside of it, like these suitcases, remained intact.

Not much is known about the pieces or their contents, but they still manage to tell such incredible stories.

Looking at these is like being transported to a different time.

Luckily, we’ve been able to come such a long since these times–both in regards to technology and mental health.

An interesting arrangement of things.

What an amazing collection.
