789. New Lisbon State School

Today the facility is called New Lisbon Developmental Center. Beside New Lisbon State School other names were used “Four Mile Colony”, “Colony for Boys” and Vineland State School.

Today 2 boys remains missing: Steven Eugene Anderson and David Williams has not been found. Foul play has not been established but then again. Without any trace of them, who might know what happened to them.

Back in the day abuse took place at the facility. Rapes took place. It must have been an awful place. At some point the authorities decided to change that but when it happened, I have not been able to find out.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child.
