  1. i am equiring about a lockdown in this hospital. I am beginning a paranormal group and want to line up some lockdowns and I like this site. please let me know if there is anything y ou can help me with.

  2. I am reaching back out in hopes of doing a lockdown in this hospital. we are a beginning group and of course will be respectful and responsible. hoping to hear from you soon please.

  3. A young lady my wife works with was just recently in the building. She was there to deliver paper work. She was warned that she might encounter ghosts while she was there. She just laughed it off. Later that afternoon she called my wife shaken. It turns out that as she was leaving she heard a spooky voice hollar. Which made her hurry up to get out the door and lock up. The voice was just one of several strange noises she had heard while there alone. Who knows could be something to this. Might be time for a professional paranormal investigation.

  4. I would love to go in there and investigate. I have heard and seen a lot of crazy stuff before. Do they give out Tours of the place. Now they would make money by just doing that. I think they should reopen it.

  5. I used to work at the Old Hospital as a guide in a haunted house during October. Before we opened we would hear babies crying on the nursery and unexplained battery drains. At one time we saw the spirit of a young girl walking around. I was also scratched and I have a picture of a hazy figure walking around upstairs.

  6. I have been in the old hospital before. Each time we would hear weird noises such as glass shattering, footsteps, etc. There is also a broke down lawnmower that moves around to different rooms every now and then.

  7. Hi i live there and all kinds of things go on ask anyone who lives in the old part we were scared to talk about it until we shared information and all of us in the old historical part have had experiences shadow forms sounds from the hall etc.
