Shadows Over Boston: Innocence Lost

Gaebler Children's Center

The Rainbow Room Story

Gaebler Children’s Center was born out of the discovery of children as young as 7 with in the walls of Metropolitan State Hospital, a fact which appalled the public and quickly lead to the building of a children specific facility on the 55 acres abutting MSH. The contract was given to the firm Bradlee, Winslow & Wetherell out of Boston and construction began in 1954 opening on October 8, 1955. The building was a marvel of modern hospitals with 3 floors of patient cells and an midline administrative and doctoral section. Unknown to the staff though there was a special room built in the facility, a rainbow painted on it’s wall with a window to beyond human understanding. This was intentional, a test the human developmental mind, a test to see if exposure to the beyond could develop supernatural psychic powers in children. Unfortunately the experimenter didn’t take into account the adult contingent involved in the care of the children, and the entire experiment quickly spiraled out of control, the same exposure that was supposed to encourage development in children caused insanity in the adults, who were already set in their own world views, causing the entire facility to turn into a living hell, corrupting the experiment with sadistic minders and polluting the connection to the beyond. The experiential a failure what ever scientists that were involved in it abandoned it and the facility was permanently closed in 1992. The facility lay dormant until 2015 when the neonates came to investigate it’s connection to the Last Rites Inc. Caught in the grips of the beyond at least one of their number came out a changed man. Now owned by Steel Industries who knows what the facility will be used for in the future, but the fact is, it’s not likely anything good.
