|The asylum first opened its doors in the late 1800's to house the mentally ill and criminally insane. By the early 1900's overcrowding was severe and conditions were appalling and inhumane. Sources claim that in order to keep the hospital popluation down, the most criminally insane patients were "accidentally murdered" by the practice of primitive shock therapy and lobtomies. The paperwork was mysteriously lost and the bodies were buried off site at a place referred to as the "Asylum Burial grounds". This notorious site is located on the Connors Farm.|
|Some think that the Salem Witch trials were a result of paranoia while others think that real witch craft and devil worship may have occurred. One thing is certain: the acts performed by the village were as gruesome as witchcraft itself: 19 people hanged, one pressed to death, and a few more died in prison. All ruthlessly sentenced without a fair trial by judges, fueled by the fear of the era.|

Frustrated that they were moved from their land twice before, they greeted the settlers with arrows and axes. So many people were slaughtered at this site that the Natives cursed this land forever.|
|Frustrated from not making the "Big time", these evil clowns snapped and went on a killing rampage.|
