“Some say that some ghost still wander the halls”

This place is on private property and not open to the public. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Harrisburg State Hospital, formerly known as Pennsylvania State Lunatic Hospital from 1851 to 1937, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Dauphin County, on Cameron and McClay Streets, was Pennsylvania’s first public facility to house the mentally ill and disabled. The TV Series Ghost Lab filmed an episode at the hospital which will air in the Fall of 2010 during the second season on the Discovery Channel. The film Another Harvest Moon was filmed at the hospital. As of June 2010, the release date for the movie has yet to be announced. The film, Girl, Interrupted was filmed at the hospital as well as other various locations in and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The hospital settings were meant to resemble those of the grounds of McLean Hospital in Massachusetts. (Note: The 'Administration' signs hanging in the car port of the Administration Building are not original to the hospital, they were created for the movie and the hospital staff left them up after the shooting was complete.)
