CPS Is Building A School On Top Of An Old Cemetery That Was Used To Bury Insane Asylum Patients

CPS (Chicago Public Schools) is in the process of blessing our children with another treat. The good news is instead of closing more schools, they’re investing $70 million into building a new one. According to the Chicago Tribune, the new school will be  135,000 square feet. And able to accommodate up to 1,200 students. The catch to this good news is that it’s being built on grounds that were used to store human remains.


But this just isn’t any old boring bone yard. According to historical records, the people who were buried here didn’t live the most pleasant lives. The site was used to bury patients from an infirmary and a tuberculosis hospital, tenants from a “Poor House”, victims of The Great Chicago Fire, and patients from an insane asylum.

If you’re a believer in the paranormal, and have heard your fare share of scary stories about disturbing old burial grounds by building buildings and homes on top of them. You’ll know that this new school is bound to hold a little more than 1,200 if you know what I mean.
