Illinois State Hospitals
hello. new here. i'm in chicago, but i've never been manteno, although i know of a few people who have. does anyone know what state it's in now? is enough of it still around and worthy of a visit? just curious, i haven't been keeping track.|
but before, i go, if anyone is interested i recommend the book "women of the asylum" by jeffrey l. geller. it's a collection of letters written by women inside asylums ranging somewhere from the early 20th century to around the fifties. it's pretty intense.
