Old Louisiana Women's Asylum for the Criminally Insane - Brandt Images

The Old Louisiana Women's Asylum for the Criminally Insane is perched on a hill in the town of Jackson Louisiana - East Feliciana Parish.

The facility features two floors of dormitories and a basement. The building was wide open and still contains many books, paperwork, school desks, and file cabinets. Graffiti artists have made their mark on what would otherwise be a wonderfully decayed relic of the past.  

I have read that Louisiana State Police use this facility to practice SWAT operations and to train K9 units. If you have any other information about this building's history, please leave in the comments below!
