One woman I know informed me that her mother worked at the Industrial School in the 1960s and '70s. She said that at one time one of the buildings was used as a "Syphilis House," in which people from other parts of the country afflicted with the disease were sent there to be quarantined. I can't find any record of that online, but I'm not surprised.
I had two people I go to school with mention to me that Walter Freeman, father of the "ice-pick lobotomy" and subject of the PBS documentary The Lobotomist, spent some time working there. Scary.
I won't be getting any pictures of the creepy old buildings. It turns out they they were demolished just a couple of years ago. It's probably best that they were.
