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.
