One of the most popular places to visit in hopes of possibly having a paranormal experience is Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky. But, Indiana is also home to a former Tuberculosis hospital that has just as many ghost sightings and paranormal activity as any haunted place in the country.

The Indiana State Sanitorium is located in Parke County, near Terre Haute, the same place as the world-famous Covered Bridge Festival is also home to this abandoned hospital.

When you see inside this hospital, it looks like everyone just left. So weird and creepy. The photo credit goes to John Cassity for these amazing and terrifying photos.

Even scarier than the photos, is the information I found about the abandoned hospital sent chills down my spine. I actually got the shivers.

The Indiana State Sanatorium is one of those most foreboding locations in Rockville, Indiana.

As a newly opened location for investigation, your paranormal experience may go far beyond the chilling activity that’s been documented so far.

Activity at this location includes disembodied voices, apparitions, and poltergeist activity.

Former staff have reported poltergeist activity in the laundry room while working when the location was still in operation.

The apparition of a woman has been reported by former patients in an old area of the sanatorium near the laundry and office areas.

The disembodied voices of both a man and woman have been heard on the grounds of the sanatorium.

As you stroll the hallways of this newly opened and ominous location, what might you encounter?

Upon looking at rooms that were vacated in such a hurry you can still find many items left behind, what energy is lying dormant and waiting for you to come in?

The spirits of Indiana State Sanatorium may just be looking for someone to tell their stories. You could be the one…Should you dare to pay a visit.


After reading that, I know my husband will not let me go. He is always afraid of what I might attract and who or what I might bring home with me.

Take a look at this incredible video of the grounds, patient rooms, kitchen, gathering areas, dining room, and more.
