Return to the Athens Lunatic Asylum

Although this summer has too busy for me to explore, after reading  Asylum on the Hill: History of a Healing Landscape .I  took yet another trip to Athens.

Visitors are allowed to tour  the Kennedy Museum of Art housed in the former Athens Lunatic Asylum.  Most of the building is closed, but here are a few pictures.

No one is allowed on the porch above the portico.

No visit to the Ridges is complete without visiting the cemeteries and the abandoned building across the road from them.

I’d never before  paid attention to this structure.

A local author (you know her well) wrote a book detailing all she learned in her years of animal rescue.  If you are interested, here is the link:   All proceeds (and that means 100% of the profits) go to pay for veterinary care for homeless and unwanted dogs and cats.
