Forest Haven
Wikipedia says: "Forest Haven was a children's developmental center in Laurel, Maryland. It is sometimes referred to as "DC Children's Center", although this was not an official moniker.

It was notorious for its poor conditions and abuse of patients. It was shut down in 1991 by a federal court."


We spent more than 5 hours walking around the campus and probably only saw half of the buildings. Just a huge area of urban decay to explore.
