Haunted Hospitals with Horrible and Scary Stories for Halloween … BOO! ğŸŽƒ

Waverly Hills Sanatorium—Waverly Hills, Kentucky

This sanatorium was designed to house tuberculosis patients and have the most cutting-edge treatment options the world had ever seen.

These days, it’s become known as one of scariest haunted hospitals in America—as well as one of the most haunted places in the country. Ghost hunters regularly report seeing shadow people, hearing disembodied voices, seeing objects move by themselves, and also seeing the ghost of a little girl who runs on the second floor.

Beechworth Lunatic Asylum—Beechworth, Australia

Many people who go to Beechworth claim to feel a sense of dread in the shock therapy hall—or even feel poked by those ghostly residents of the haunted asylum.

However, there’s also a very sad side to this haunted asylum. Adults were not the only residents here, which is why many people claim to hear the sounds of children playing around the area. In fact, it’s not so uncommon for child visitors to be seen talking to invisible people—then claiming they were talking to boys who “lived there.”

Rolling Hills Asylum—Bethany, New York

Considering that the insane were treated brutally during the 19th century, it’s unsurprising that many potentially sane people who were admitted ended up going crazy. Patients here were known to undergo torturous treatments and also be left barely clothed in the middle of winter.

    We had a similar place here in Michigan called “Eloise” but it has been closed many years now, but there is talk it was haunted and some terrible stories came out of there.

      I could picture myself sitting with my grandma (RIP) in some house in Michigan, by the fireplace, drinking chocolate made by her and telling scary stories about “Eloise” place.

        It was rumored to be haunted for years and I am sure every city that has an insane asylum has a set of stories and urban legends to tell … people here would say “better be nice or we’ll send you to Eloise” …. not a very nice thing to say quite frankly, but I think it put fear in people’s hearts.
