Mountain Sanatorium

Friday, March 30th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

This site is a journey into the Essex Mountain Sanatorium, from when it was built to its demolition.

You can follow these buildings’ journey, superstition, lore and learn some factual information as their stories are unraveled. I recommend starting with the prologue, which explains the author’s reasoning for the site. It really gets your journey started on the right foot.

From there, I’d follow the links at the bottom of the pages, as they will lead you through the site. After the prologue, you’re taken to the history page and from there, you go into the pictures section.

I was amazed at the paperwork, blueprints and job orders that they found and were able to document on these buildings. You can explore the supposed haunting in the sanatorium through both the images and stories. You can even learn about the low budget horror flick shot on the grounds.

I loved the comparison photos where the author of the site shows you how the buildings and land looked in their hay day, as well as, how they looked when they had deteriorated, due to time and neglect. You’ll find those in the Through Time area.

You can even see images that people submitted from their own collections to the site, which leads me to believe that this place really had an impact on the people who visited or lived near the sanatorium.

The site ends with an epilogue, but you can also interact with others on the forums or drop the author an e-mail as to what you thought about the site. This is a very in depth look at an abandoned place that made a mark on peoples’ lives for over 100 years. Enjoy!
