Reported occurrences that seem to speak for the hospital being haunted are many, including 1) The first-floor men’s room is said to always be 15-20 degrees colder than the rest of the building; 2) Witnesses describe a feeling of being watched by something unseen; 3) Bloody footprints can be seen on the floor, walls and even the ceiling of the basement, the former morgue; 4) A toilet flushes by itself in a third-floor restroom; and 5) an elevator seems to work on its own. Some say the ghost of Charlie Achenbach has been spotted here as well.
NOTE: Sources say the owner does not tolerate trespassing and will call police and prosecute intruders.
