I'm a little sketchy on the 'facts' but as I've been told it was first built as a home for priests in the early 1900's then later turned into an orphanage then finally a home for orphans and cast outs from society who had no other place to go. Many were mentally ill and lacked people to care for them. It was closed down in the 80's. Rumors of murder, beatings and abuse are rampant and I'm sure exaggerated – but it makes for great stories. A friend of mine and I took it upon ourselves to get a closer look... I'm debating asking the current owners to photo the inside as well as the sub basement (2 basements) that many of the 'rumors' have mentioned.
