There is an abandoned mental hospital in East Tennessee that has a history of hauntings. Lake shore Mental Institute,  in the middle of Lake shore park just closed down last year, and has been scaring people ever since! The complex first opened in 1886. People have reported screams of disembodied psychotic people. To make it more scary it is rumored in the 1960s that the employees physically abused the patients.

The site originally shut down in June of 2012, but the building remains in shambles.  Some say that the voices of the past patients can still be heard wandering around the grounds.  Some people have gone to the site previously and recorded their findings. Photos show dark rooms and a haunting piano, lost in the basement.  Who knows what really happened in this dark asylum.
