    Pennhurst State School and Hospital was established in 1903.

    It didn’t take long for Pennhurst to encounter some serious issues.

    Sometimes parents abandoned their mentally disabled children there.

    These issues led to horrid results.

    More concerning was the patients’ treatment from overworked staff.

    The inhumane conditions and awful treatment that led to patients suffering and dying there are blamed for Pennhurst’s current hauntings.

    Ryan and Shane tried multiple methods to communicate with sprits, from laser grids and motion lights, to dowsing rods, and a spirit box.

    However, as cool as the laser grids looked, they didn't garner any ghoulish activity.

    Pennhurst is currently open to the public as a haunted attraction.
