BETTER VIEWED LARGER
Do you ever get the feeling when look at a old building that someone is looking back. This is one of the windows of the oldest still intact (just) womens quarters of the Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum c 1867 better known as Beechworth Lunatic Asylum.
At its peak the asylum that dates back to 1867, held 1200 patients. More then 3000 people died within it’s 3m- high walls. Some died peacefully, but there are others, like the women thrown from one of the towers by her fellow patients, that haunt the imagination and, according to one visitor, the main building.
