This location used to be a hospital for people suffering from TB. Before it was renovated, curious visitors would be scared off by the sounds of children laughing, EVPs also being common.

  1. I went here one night with a few friends shortly after moving to bakersfield the horror me and my friends suffered people will never understand we where chased by unseen people there where rooms where you could hear someone screaming there were hospital stuff around the place we found some bloody clothing the worst part was the little girl who disappeared into thin air wile we chased her we turned the corner and she was gone I’ll never go there again

  2. I installed rain gutters on this place a few years back. I can confirm seeing children in the windows as well as hearing children laughing. Also there is another building there that is in disrepair also with activity.

  3. Went here as a teen quite a few times and definitely heard laughter. Later in life, I worked here for a short while for the Cesar Chavez foundation and the workers had plenty of stories to tell.
