Hart House began as the regal home for Dr. Harmon Hart and his family of nine in 1910. With beautifully structured roof lines, eight bedrooms plus a back servants’ quarters that once housed as many as twenty three, and a first level full of grandly designed parlors, a ball room, and even a conservatory, it was the large family’s dream. Full of children’s laughter and love, it shined as brightly as a golden temple in the community.
A precious short eight years later, illness struck and ravaged the family, leaving only Dr. Hart and his wife. Grief and pain clung to the couple and infected the walls. After a torturous few months Dr. Hart suffered the passing of Mrs. Hart from melancholy. In response to the crushing grief, Dr. Hart became his work. He tore apart and turned his large, vacant home into a care home for the mentally ill. Many more perished on the grounds during the two decades of his operating the facility. Whether due to natural causes or other more nefarious reasons, no one knows.
Through the following years, Hart House went through multiple renovations and operated as an orphanage, a homeless shelter, then was purchased and turned into a residential treatment center for those battling mental afflictions and addictions.
Recent revelations of criminal behaviors, including embezzlement, selling pharmaceuticals, and giving patients placebos, led to the parent company’s decision to close the facility quickly and sell to a private family to avoid the dark stain from becoming widely known to blemish them.
Just days away from the scheduled closing, Hart House witnessed yet another tragedy. Nurse Starly was discovered in the back hallway viciously murdered.
Now all the ugly little skeletons crawl into the light, begging to be seen….
