This mental hospital was originally a facility for TB and Polio patients. There are many stories surrounding the place, including that it is haunted. One story states there was a mental patient who slashed a priest's throat in the building. Witnesses have claimed there are many unhappy spirits that linger here and that lights have been known to turn on and off by themselves. The building is sometimes used for police training and trespassing is prohibited.

I had the screaming on video but when I left it was no longer on my phone. completely gone. I plan on going again but i’m going to bring voice recorders.

  • This place is huge

    Me and my friend went here a couple days ago and wow there are several buildings you can explore through. The only bad thing about exploring here is that I had to park at dominos which was the closest plaza, since you cannot park at any of the buildings near this asylum. Don’t even bother looking for close parking because they have guards that patrol there at night, but I did not know so i kept driving around looking for parking until I found a guard watching me the whole time.. It is better to go hear at night so that the guards and security cameras don’t catch you easily. On the good side, there are openings in the gates you can crawl through. The only weird thing was that the fence that guards the asylum buildings was wide open (like it was a trap or someone was letting us in easy). There are a lot of open doors into these buildings so that is a good thing. It was my friend and I’s first time ever exploring through an abandoned building, so this haunted asylum definitely spooked us out the second we walked in! Remember this word of advice: Go at night, wear dark clothing, bring flashlights, be careful of guard cars and security cameras, and also bring a group of at least 3 to be safe, and lastly, have fun!

  • The trill was so good!!!

    A group of friends and I attended this loacation and boy oh boy there is definitely something here! I got really hot walking into one of the courtyards. I felt a shock run through my body as I touched one of the walls on accident . I could hear a growling, crying laughter it was crazy. I want to go back and see more of the hospital without be chased out by the cops. They got that place surrounded so be careful. Have fun Happy Ghost Haunting ??
