I grew up in westminster,born in 1959 in Artesia. My mom and dad bought a house in Westminster in 1955 I believe.I just came across this site when I was trrying to find some info on an old mental hospital in Garden Grove.I think it was on Garden Grove Blvd.The "old mental hospital" was a sanitarium on Garden Grove Blvd and Nutwood. It part of a 15 acre resort called Greenbriar Inn. Greenbriar Inn opened up in 1940 and included a hotel and restaurant. Greenbriar Inn closed down in 1970. Later on it was torn down and turned into tract homes.
Me and my friends used to drive through there after it closed because it was supposed to be haunted,but I cant find anything on it,maybe someone else remembers it.I have many fond memories of Orange Co.I read on here about someone mentioning Farrels Ice Cream parlour I think there was one in Huntington Beach on Beach Blvd. or maybe it was Westminster.I used to go there alot. That was probably in the 70s.
Many believe the sanitarium to be haunted.
