Ridge Home information

Classification: Query
I'm doing some research on Ridge Home unfortunately there insn't much information...I believe Ridge Home was opened in 1910 and was just recently torn down and now has a Super Target in it's place.It was mental hospital also known as Colorado State Home for Mental Defectives at Ridge located in Arvada Co,most made up of juviniles some we're perfectly normal children that were dropped off to live there the rest of their lives then later they became socially mentaly disabled,it got the name Ridge Home because of the street that ran along side called Ridge Road.
There have been stories of abuse and neglect but nothing specific has been reported,one death has been reported.The building has been reported to be haunted,after it was torn down there has been said to still be activity...why? I'm not sure since there isn't much information on any deaths there...there isn't much information period,some has been said to be classified...This is what I'm in search of,the untold information that maybe residents of Arvada might know of or any stories from past employees ect...
I'd appreciate any information that anyone has thanks.
