THE COLUMBUS MENTAL HOSPITAL, TICO CEMETERY
This is one of the cemeteries where the state of Ohio buried the residents of the mental hospital whose families either didn’t claim them or were too poor to afford to do it themselves. The gravestones are all the same size and shape, and most are simply a name with a birth and death date.
The most striking feature is that there are 2 gravestones marked “SPECIMEN.” What that could possibly entail is horrifying.
