The article caught the attention of an artist/photographer named Bryant Abbot. Bryant reached out to tell me his Fairfield Hills story. After exchanging some information, he informed me he was a photographer and had high quality photos from inside and outside of the facility. Abbott sent me these images, they are some of the clearest and most eerie Fairfield Hills photos I've ever seen.

Fairfield Hills Psychiatric Hospital is located in Newtown, CT. The campus has been in varying degrees of restoration/development since it closed on 1995. The Town of Newtown owns it and has turned some structures into municipal buildings while others have been leased out to private businesses. The remaining vacant structures have become magnets for ghost hunters and artists.
Recently, I spoke to one of those artists, a photographer named Bryant Abbot. Our digital talk was unique and entertaining. Abbot shared his photos, his personal story and his inspirations with me. Below are his pictures of Fairfield Hills and some of what we talked about.
Absolutely absurd how talented this dude is, I'm instantly a fan. Thank you to Bryant for sharing his stuff with me so I can share it with my people. I have nothing but love for people who slow down long enough to see the world in a completely different way.

Since it's frowned upon (illegal) to go inside the buildings without permission, there are not that many photos/videos from inside the walls. When a new video or photos surface, I jump on it, and that is exactly what I did when these images appeared on September 23, 2022.
Behind the Walls of CT's Abandoned Norwich State Hospital
In this day and age, mental health treatment is serious business and in most cases, patients are treated with care and respect. This was not always the case in the U.S. and hospitals dedicated to the "mentally ill" became prisons that regularly conducted torture. America is now littered with shuttered hospitals decaying from the inside and the outside. Many believe these places still contain the dark energy left behind by the gruesome acts of the past. One of these places in Norwich State Hospital.
Exploring the Aftermath of the Hideous Inferno at Newtown’s McGuire’s Ale House
According to our earlier reports, the Hawleyville Volunteer Fire Company was the first on the scene, followed by Newtown Hook & Ladder 114. The Firefighter battled a massive blaze at the Newtown building that was once McGuire’s Ale House and Hot Shots II. The F.D.’s brought in an attack line, to fight against the flames and the roof came down.
The dramatic day became big news with locals sharing pictures and videos all over social media. While the Fire Departments were able to finish off the flames, the building was destroyed.
