Foxborough State Hospital, historically known as the Massachusetts Hospital for Dipsomaniacs and Inebriates was established in the 1890s. In 1914 it became a psychiatric hospital, and it was closed in 1975. Throughout those years employees passed down a story of a patient who had been buried alone because they had some type of communicable disease. No one knew the identity of this patient, where they were buried, or if it was true at all.
