The Insane Asylum in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico

BUILT: Unknown
STATUS: Closed


Though the owners of the abandoned asylum’s property are extremely strict about trespassers, a few have actually gotten in. Those who have entered have reported a large black cloud hovering above them. Some photographs even depict said cloud. The story goes that one patient became so uncontrollably insane that he massacred several doctors, nurses, and patients. It was forced to close down afterwards, as things weren’t quite the same.

    Hum….. I live in Santa Fe, not far from ABQ. I am going to have to check this out!! what does “Type: Not Kirkbride Plan” mean??


    1. There are a lot of haunts in Santa Fe as well. The Kirkbride Plan was this plan put together by psychiatrist Thomas Story Kirkbride. Basically, it was the ideals of what mental hospitals should be like in architecture, treatment standards, and so on. Asylums not part of the Kirkbride Plan are not to those ideals.
