Abandonment History

The Candycorn State Hospital closed in 2001 after all services were transfered to a different facilty only several miles away. It first opened as a State Hospital but immediately after it's closure in the 1970's, was purchased by a company who turned it into a General Hospital. In the late 90's they were unable to budget emergency care, and could not sustain itself with only in-patient care. One building remained open as an alcohol treatment facility until those service were also transfered to a nearby hospital. One building on campus suffered a fire in 2005, however aside from that there is very little - if any - vandalism. Candycorn is locally notorious for it's many alarms and vicinity to many state and local police offices.


We've never had much luck with this location. Our first trip was a slight success as we did end up getting inside. Since then all of the following trips have ended in us running into the woods and back the car as fast as we can. From the one time we did get inside I could tell that the hospital isn't very deteriorated, so it's not like most of the places we've visited, most of the internal damage is from the hospital being gutted of it's usable sellable pieces by work crews at it's closing. Our usual preference is for a place that's slightly more decaying.
