Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team
In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.
Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.
