Does anyone remember a "haunted hospital" that was downtown, I think around the executive inn? We snuck in there in high school in the early 90's, and im trying to tell some friends about it. if you know anything thanks

They tore it down in 2001 I think, asbestos crew. The Executive Inn owned it and donated it to the city so Paducah could pay to get rid of it. I never went inside or heard that it was haunted.

I remember it, it was a really small building. I think asbestos makes you hallucinate.

Ther was nothing haunted about Riverside Hospital. It was just a sorry hospital with grouchy nurses and people in the know went to the IC Hospital on Broadway till Paducah got quality hospitals in Western Baptist and the new Lourdes. Paducah is blessed with best medical care of any place closer than Nashville.

It was Riverside Hospital in 1955, gave birth to my 2nd child there. Never heard of it being haunted though. Think I remember reading somewhere that it was originally built for use by river boat workers/ passengers/etc. That being reason for it's location.

civil war hospital, river side, lourdes, lifecare, housed up to 300 patients on the first 3 floors and the fourth floor was unoccupied. And yes it was haunted. My mother worked there for years and she has graduated top of her RN class, so I believe her when she told me it was haunted. Will do research and hopefully be able to post websites later, I would truely like to no more about it too.

If you believe the Bible then you will believe there are ghosts. They thought Jesus was a ghost when he was walking out to the boat on the water. If there aren't ghosts then why did they perceive Question:
"In Matthew 14:26 when Jesus is walking on the water the disciples are afraid because they think that he is a "ghost". If ghosts do not exist then how do they even know about them."
Thanks, Kim 11/2/01

Matthew 14:26
"And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear." This is the King James Version. The NIV and some others use the word "ghost" instead of "spirit".

Answer:
The belief in ghosts probably dates back several thousand years. People living at the time of Christ believed in them just as some people living today believe in them. This does not make them any more real. There were lying spirits then, and there are lying spirits now.

Jesus never taught that ghosts were real, or that they were the spirits of our loved ones returning to visit us. To the contrary he taught that when we die we are either with God in heaven, or will be waiting final judgment (hell).

He was a ghost. Apparently. they knew what a ghost was, right?

I was born @ The Old Riverside Hospital on 12/31/57, my mother was a nurse there, then @ age 14, 1972 I worked there, then we moved to the new hospital...I was in dietary, which in the old hospital was in the same area as the mourge, in fact, behind the porter's closet was a walk-in freezer, unlocked that had frozen arms/legs, etc.

How many nights I spent mopping and buffing that cafeteria, no ghosts I ever heard/saw.

Was there both a Lourdes Hosp. and a Riverside Hosp. in 1953?
My birth certificate says that I was born at Riverside in March of 1953. I just began a search today, because I find myself in need of a state certified birth cert. instead of the "Hospital issued" one that I have. I found this site by accident.
