Built in the late 1800’s as a hotel initially to service the railroad. Was eventually turned into a nursing home and then a group home for the mentally handicapped. It serviced everyone from those with Down’s Syndrome to the more exotic of diseases like multiple personalities and schizophrenia. The building was shut down by the state of IA for many different reasons including neglect. Multiple deaths have occurred on property as well.
Many things happen in this 10,000 square foot building. Voices, bangs, shadow people, grabs, hair pulls, you name it and it most likely happens on a daily basis.
Overnight investigations are open to the public and by reservation only.
