Contemporary Pennhurst Photography

In the years since Pennhurst State School was closed, it has become a source of wonder to photographers - some of whom have travelled hundreds, even thousands of miles to experience it.

This page contains copyrighted work contributed by just some of the many photographers committed to documenting Pennhurst State School, and is featured here by permission. Please do not copy or distribute this work.

Please note: In the time since these photographs were taken, Pennhurst has become private property.  The Pennhurst Memorial and Preservation Alliance does not support, condone, or encourage trespassing onto the Pennhurst property.
