History: 

Opened in 1908, Pennhurst was a school for disabled students. Covering 1400 acres, this enormous institution would be accused of dehumanization, and eventually abuse of its students before finally closing in 1986 in the grip of yet more scandal.


Personal Commentary: 

I wasn't here very long before the authorities kindly requested I not be.
