    1. We went hunting there in 1995 or 96. Our first visit was a “scouting” trip. We had camera’s but no video. I don’t have the audio alas….

      The dust and the condition of the building have their own sense of ambiance. There are records there and as you heard coats etc. We didn’t know what it was. We just knew it was an abandoned hospital.. alas google was not yet a thing. We didn’t know the story so to us it had looked as if a fire had happened or some other such tragedy and the place was evacuated.

      While we were there we saw tiny footprints in the dust, not much larger than a toddlers. One of us caught the site of a little girl and she followed us everywhere. But we couldn’t capture her on our equipment at the time. We returned a couple of weeks later with some toys, but were stopped by the police.

      If you want an experience, this is the place to go!

    2. I came here with my dad when I was visiting back in 2014 or 15 and we were riding around an I told him I wanna see glenn dale hospital and we went up a tiny incline and was able to see the back of the hospital which I though was really neat but we left after about 10 minutes for fear of setting off an alarm and in case your wondering if you can go there my dad told me they removed the patrols and put censors instead

    3. So me and 11 of my friends went to Glendale Hospital to go on a ghost hunting Adventure and before we could actually make it inside the building 4 police had stopped us and taking us around to the side of the building where their cars were and as the police have all four of us sitting on the ground writing us up are citations something in the building had thrown a rock from the window even the police officers seen and heard it and it definitely came from the hospital
