What is the campus’s status and buildings today, and what does the future hold?
The Walter E. Fernald Developmental Center has a very dark past. A past shaded with sinister and unethical experimentation on developmentally disabled children. From eugenics to feeding children cereals laced with radioactive isotopes. Life inside the Fernald was not one of rehabilitation or care that it should have been. Today, the campus is abandoned, a quiet and lonely reminder of a time many would rather forget. But do the dark shadows of the past still linger in the halls of countless buildings that slowly rot away on this seemingly cursed plot of land? Today we learn about Fernald’s Spirits as we talk with paranormal investigator Nick Graves.
