Each season, more than 222,000 plants change color at The Morton Arboretum–an internationally recognized outdoor tree museum located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Ill. They originate from 40 countries in the northern hemisphere, which means an exploration of the arboretum's 1,700 acres is like a trip across America, China, and Europe. Throughout the year, scores of tree-focused events, activities, and services for adults, children, and professionals keep nature enthusiasts engaged and educated. The sights along its 16 miles of walking trails and nine miles of roads evolve yearly from rich greens in the spring and summer to a rainbow of yellow, orange, and red in the fall, before clearing its canvas in winter. Seasonal attractions, including Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum, grant guests with a unique, interactive experience that includes dazzling light projections and electric splashes of color. Such events help summon more than 800,000 annual visitors to the grounds and more than 36,000 member households, all of which visit between 7 a.m. and sunset, daily.
The year was 1899. Renowned psychologist Doctor Francis, disgusted with the inhumane practices in place at the Danvers State Hospital, decided to leave his position at the so-called "Hospital Hell" and start his own clinic in his family's backyard. For six months, all seemed perfect for the Francis family and their 13 patients. But the doctor was so consumed in his work that he failed to see the tragedy that was befalling his beloved wife and daughter. By the time he could tear himself from his clinic, it was too late—his family was dead. Half crazed by guilt and grief, the once kind-hearted doctor forgot his patients, dooming them to neglect and starvation, and dooming himself to a grisly death that awaited him once his wards escaped from behind the asylum's doors.
Today, the scene of this terrible tragedy draws thrill-seekers to brave the halls of the mansion where the ghosts of Dr. Francis and his family linger on. Those foolish enough to ignore the warnings from the guardian at the door endure more than 25,000 square feet of twists and turns, coming face to face with more than 60 terrifying specters and at least one jaw-dropping hospital bill. Those lucky enough to survive the mansion can head home to hide under their beds––but only if fate smiles twice and guides them safely past the tortured souls still confined in the backyard insane asylum.
