Is it true that some TV crew has been filming out there about the hospital and the grounds being haunted? I have heard stories about ghost sightings there and just wonder, is the place haunted?

I know alot of people who work there and i haven't heard anything about a TV crew yet. the main hospital is over 150 years old, can you imagine the number of people who have lived and died there. i always thought it was haunted, its a very scary place.

The upstairs where they have mostly storage is very haunted. I don't really even believe in that stuff but I've heard too many stories from people who were still shaken (even years later) by the experience to dismiss it. I doubt they would give permission to film in a working facility though.

They cannot film there is would be a HIPPA violation weather it was past or present no facility can give out information about any resident. Even if they give false names but true stories it is still a violation.

Obviously that cannot be entirely true, because these "ghost hunting" TV shows go into old hospitals all the time. They mostly don't use names or just a first name. I guess you can get away with it so long as one local resident/caretaker/whoever tells the crew "Well there is an old story about..."

I wouldn't say the hospital is haunted. It definitely has some very restless spirits. I know for a fact there are demons inside those walls. I have come face to face with many. Their not in any particular area either. They are all over, even on the grounds. They won't harm you, or the ones that haven't possessed are harmeless. As far as cameras the employees are not even suppose to bring cameras on the state hospital grounds. Are you WSH Employees?

I think there is mention of WSH in a documentary about the bad things that used to done to people before "mental" disorders were ever really classified.

Check this out. Someone is doing a supernatural Halloween dinner based on Western State. http://www.bgdailynews.com/articles/2011/10/2...
What a shame that someone is using the haunted history of Hopkinsville to promote events in Bowling Green! This is why the "good ole boys" who run this town need to go. We should be promoting our history for the benefits of our local businesses and citizens, not letting our history be co-opted by others.

That paranormal crap is all in peoples heads anyway. No such thing. I could hear squeeks in an old house and tell people its a damn ghost.
