A former Rolling Hills Asylum volunteer and dear friend, Jason Jewett was a Federal Agent at the Immigration Customs Enforcement & Deportation facility in Batavia, NY along with being one of 13 instructors for the Special Response Team. He loved his job as an agent. Jason raised Siberian Huskies, was an avid car enthusiast and enjoyed doing roofing projects. In fact, Jason answered an SOS call for help with repairing a roof at RHA and this is how we became fast friends.  His love and support for me and Rolling Hills Asylum along with his camaraderie with the other RHA volunteers will never be forgotten. Sadly, Jason passed on August 30, 2013 away due to injuries sustained in a non-work related motor vehicle accident. Jason was a patriot who loved his country, especially the Wounded Warriors Project.

Rolling Hills Asylum in East Bethany, NY - just 15 minutes from Batavia and 45 minutes between Rochester and Buffalo, was originally opened in 1827 as The Genesee County Poor House.  In 1938 the county added a hospital to the facility - the Genesee County Infirmary, and in 1964 converted the property to the Genesee County Nursing Home, or as the locals lovingly referred to it as  “the old county home” until its closing in 1974. Steeped in nearly 200 years of history, mystery and mayhem, today, Rolling Hills Asylum is reputed to be the most haunted asylum in the USA and has been featured in numerous films and television shows such as Syfy’s Ghost Hunters, Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, and Destination America’s Ghost Asylum.  Rolling Hills Asylum offers Historical or Flashlight tours, public or private ghost hunts, horror movie nights, car shows, and dozens of other special/celebrity events!  We are open year round, even in the winter!  Please visit our website at http://www.RollingHillsAsylum.com for more information or  you may also leave us a voice message at (585)502-4066 and we will happily return your call.
