German Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  German Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum

The mid-1800s German Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum closed in 1956, and the buildings were used as a preparatory seminary until the complex was sold to a private owner in the 1990s. It is said to be haunted by colorful orbs that show up in photos, unexplained noises, and sounds of water running through the building when no water services were in operation.
