FH was a children’s developmental center and mental institution in Laurel, Maryland.

It was notorious for its poor conditions and abuse of patients. It opened its doors in 1925, and was shut down in 1991 by a federal court. There have since been numerous civil and class-action lawsuits involving patients and employees

During the early years, it was considered a state of the art facility. With a good reputation, this hospital set the standard for other states to follow. With declining conditions decades later, many patients filed lawsuits against the hospital for reasons of abuse, neglect, poor living conditions — even medical testing. A small morgue was all that stood between the patients and a cemetery on site where graves had been repeatedly uncovered by erosion.

This is from the Lebow Clothing company building in Baltimore. The building has been empty for decades. I owned a warehouse across the street from this place for a few years, and always looked at this building and thought about breaking in and seeing what was in there.

Inside the building there are still thousands of coats, jackets, and suits. Unfortunately most of them have been dry rotted, or eaten by moths. There were hundreds of steam press machines, sewing machines, and file cabinets still sitting there as though the workers punched out, walked out the door, and left everything as they had worked on it. I was going to snag a few of the jackets that managed to stay in good shape, but I decided it was best to leave things exactly as i had found them so that others could find them after me. Not to mention that the best way to get caught sneaking into a place is to walk out with an armful of stuff you didnt walk in with.


"Lebow Clothing Factory was built in the 1930’s and was the manufacturer of the high-end Lebow Clothes label, best known for its men’s suits and sportcoat collection. At its peak in the 50’s and 60’s, it employed several thousand blue-collar workers in Baltimore until it closed its doors in 1985. The building was sold, but after sitting vacant for the last five years, the city seized the property. Currently, there is a lawsuit pending against the city over the seizure of the property. ."
