We pulled up to the front gate so I could take some shots through the fence, and I'm glad I did...
A contractor pulled up to the gate blaring his horn, impatiently waiting for someone to come over and open it up. I asked if he would mind us following him inside to take some outside photos, he said that would be up to the guy with the keys. He was getting very impatient and left after about 5 minutes when no one showed up... no exterior shots except from behind the fence then, ah well.
Here's a historic photo of the asylum circa 1920:
