First of all, i am not "ghost hunting", i am trying to learn history about our area. I am doing a project for a journalism class in which we have to search the history of locations to find if anything matches to hauntings in said area.

I was hoping that someone might have information pertaining to hauntings at the mildred mitchell bateman hospital. I have found the articles about the fire which took place however the hauntings do not all seem to come from this fire.

Some accounts of activity include: Many reports of apparitions come directly from staff members, including a man who is seen walking into room 306, a woman wearing distinct red shoes seen walking towards where the former morgue was kept, and the shadowy figure of someone hanging and swinging in the same spot where a patient took his life in the same manner.  Shadowy figures have also been seen in the present kitchen area, and doors are known to slam shut on their own accord.

If you have any information about the things listed above please let me know. Please be serious.

the old part of the hospital still stands in the back of the property from the time period of the fire. I have to admit I've been a little freaked out at times hearing things in the basement. I've never seen anything there is also a tunnel system that is closed off now but there are still parts you can enter !!

Most of the strange feeling kind of experiences happen in Building 5. Everytime we go over there we get chills and seems like people are around that can't be seen. I have heard these stories for years. Some of the bathrooms too!

I too have looked for info on this place and haven't found much. I did find a good article on Herald Dispatch about the fire and it had a bunch of pictures, it was an interesting article but you probably have all the info that is written in it.

I am still looking around on for info too. I am trying to find out more about treatments that were done there and things like patient suicide.
