Abandoned Insane Asylum

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Abandoned Insane Asylum

Black mists are said to rise from the site and horrible feelings of oppression were claimed to be felt at this abandoned asylum. The asylum was on private property, and the owners got so sick of trespassers that they finally tore it down. Although this site is gone, there is no doubt that the spirits linger on…

      • You can get to it from the railroad tracks. Go north beside the track for a little and then you see a white building on your right. It’s the backside. Be very careful going because the people there don’t fancy trespassers. Hope this helped :)

    1. The power of actually reading an article instead of seeing location and running there. Details count people! It separates the intellegent from the ignorant. The fact that people took information from this site then ran out to see it then CAME BACK and still didn’t read the whole thing is amusement to those of us who read things in their entirety.

    2. I saw this place many years ago. I took an artifact from there. Immediately things started getting bad. Before we even got to our cars the sheriffs came. They let us go. Within days our pets started becoming ill and dying. This went on for about of week. Out of 6 pets, one lived. Our lights would go on and off. Doors would open or shut by themselves. Got so bad we had a “psychic” come over. I didn’t really believe in that but the psychic identified right away the artifact I took from the asylum and said that was what was causing it. She told me to take it back and put it exactly where I found it. I did and things were better right away. So, that was my experience with this place. Not good. It was all either one big coincidence, or it was true. Either way, it about ruined my life.

    3. I was a patient in the Cleveland County Regional Hospital in Shelby, NC. And I was just about asleep when all of a sudden something scratched the sole of my foot. I sat up instantly and looked around. There was no one in the room. The door was shut, nothing sharp in the bed with me. It really creeped me out!!

    4. My sister was also a patient in Cleveland Regional Hospital in Shelby, NC and was in room 461. She said the CNA had come in to check on her, when all of a sudden the clock on the wall lifted off and flew across the floor. The CNA went running out of the room screaming. And my sister was left alone in there to deal with it. So the occasion comes that I am a patient in the hospital there again and Im in room 459. I asked the CNA on duty if she had ever heard of a story about a clock flying off the wall in room 461. First she tells me there is no such room. I said well that’s interesting because that is the room my sister was in when that happened. I thought well maybe she was mistaken and it was room 416. Then the CNA tells me well clocks fly off the walls around here all the time. I said really!!!! then she totally recants herself and says you know there is a room 461 and there has only been one occasion that a clock flew off the wall. Strange wouldn’t you say??

    5. I was here several years ago. 3 others and I came down here after hearing stories from other group of friends who went down here. We bought a Ouija board and parked down the street and explored the place. Before doing our session we looked around for anyone who might be in there. This place, I remember was very creepy. A lot of dark energy. I wish we could still go back there.

    6. It’s still there. I snuck in the back way and some of the ruins are still standing. They have security like Fort Knox though. THe feeling of oppression and dark energy is definitely prevalent. I snapped a few pics and booked it out of there. Not sure if they have cameras or what. I was standing out front looking at it from Edith Ave (Public city of Abq property) and then drove to the back. Later I saw cops out front. Just be careful if you do go. It had a very eerie feeling to it.

    7. This place didn’t tore down, lies!!! It been restore into a hotel now call Hotel Parq Central. How I know because I live here in abq.

      • Wrong place hotel para central is the old Santa fe hospital on central n.e. And I-25 across from Presbyterian hospital I pass it everyday
