Undercliff Sanatorium





Undercliff State Hospital, or Meriden Sanatorium, was a 37-40 acre hospital on Undercliff Road, Meriden, Connecticut, United States. It was erected and established as Meriden Sanatorium in 1910 to serve children with tuberculosis, German measles, chicken pox, or smallpox. In 1922/1924 the name was changed to Undercliff Sanatorium. In 1939, the hospital began accepting adults. In 1967 the name was changed from Undercliff Sanatorium to Undercliff Mental Health Center.[1] As of 1976, the facility was discontinued. The remaining patients were moved to the cottages where the original doctors lived. In 2004, the state changed the name to be more appropriate for patients and residents. It remains open to the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDS), The Department of Mental Rehabilitation (DMR), The Department of Child and Family Services, other various state agencies and Connecticut State Police. There are several newly built DDS Buildings that are homes to mentally and physically disabled residents under the care of the state, DMR field offices, residential programs, day services programs, a respite center, and maintenance operations. The cottages and houses scattered about the property house more independent developmentally disabled adults, juvenile and adult sex offenders as well as surplus police and military equipment.

Connecticut prohibits the public from accessing the grounds, and recently removed the Undercliff Road sign. Cops patrol the grounds and anyone who does not live or work on the premises will be arrested for trespassing. A state police officer lives on the premises. The state is debating whether a portion can be utilized for economic development to generate revenue to pay for city expenses. However Cliff House and the larger building at the top of the campus may be uninhabitable because of ADA issues.[2]

Although the main road is now well lit at night, roads that veer off are dark and extremely creepy. The main hospital buildings are abandoned and boarded up. Older Meriden residents say that the children who passed at the sanitarium were buried in unmarked graves, in the woods behind the buildings. There have been numerous reports of hauntings here. Some allege to have heard the voices of children, both laughing and crying, while others have claimed to have seen the shadows and spirit of children in the windows of the now-empty buildings. Those who have ventured inside the buildings have supposedly heard the footsteps of patients running from orderlies as well as the screams of the mentally ill undergoing treatment.

Those places are probably the most prone to haunting of anywhere. There's a huge abandon one in Sarasota that my son and some friends went into to skateboard years ago.
He said they left in a hurry... I guess they both saw something in broad daylight that scared the crap out of them.
He wouldn't say what they saw, but it must have been pretty frighting.

The video reminded me of something you would see out of Chernobyl
