Turning mental institutions into condos's grand-prize winner for dumbest moment of 2005 goes to a plan to convert the creepy Danvers State Hospital into high-end apartments and condos. This mental institution was an example of the architecture known as the "Kirkbride Plan," similar to other Gothic Revival masterpieces like the H.H. Richardson-designed Buffalo State Hospital.

Danvers was the setting of the 2001 film "Session 9."
