  1. An father killed his 6year old daughter on the first floor in her bedroom on the west wing. It was said that she had cancer, and the hospital refused to admit her in. So one day her father took her into her room and killed her infront of her brother. The brother jumped out of the window and the father killed himself in the furnace room which ignited a fire killing 2 aids and a nurse. It is said that they all haunt the hospital. I’ve only seen the little girl and the father.


    1. I’ve never heard any haunted tales about the hospital. I was born there on the 3rd floor, which was later taken over by the County Welfare office & I worked there as a receptionist.


  2. Are people still allowed to visit? Or is it off limits?


    1. Yes it is but if you go to the back you can get in


Do you dare to reply?
