This fabulous articles appears in a United Kingdom newspaper, and is chock full of photos from the asylum's past

The Outagamie County Cemetery is located on the former grounds of the Outagamie County Asylum for the Chronic Insane. The cemetery was used to bury 133 residents of the asylum whose bodies were not claimed by their families. The first burial was in 1891, and the last was in 1949. There were few markers in the cemetery, and all of the remaining markers were removed in the 1940s.
