Bartonville Asylum

April 24, 2014

Thirty-one club members and accompanying adults investigated the former Peoria Home for the Incurably Insane (Bartonville Asylum) on April 15, 2014. The location has been featured on such shows as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. The Bowen Building once housed the nursing staff of the complex, which contained over 60 buildings, and also housed 120 patients. It was built in the early 1900's.
