Lots of people were born there, and many have probably also died there!

Oooooou! Happy Halloween!

yeap its haunted...we have had experiences there plenty of times! we have even seen pictures with a face in one of the upstairs windows..lights on when no one inside and no active electric...
but yes its true it was once a nurses home, then a hospital and the job and family services building.
STILL VERY VERY CREEPY...I would love to do a haunted house in it!

A lot of people here in town were born there! They didn't move the hospital to the present location until 1959 or so! I know that sounds like ancient history to many of you, but quite a few VW residents can remember those days!

And...I thought they did do a "haunted house" there for a few years...no?

The building is functionally obsolete. It was built in 1884 as a school, converted to hospital in 1899 or 1900, which moved out in 1960. It was then Van Rue nursing home until about 1984, then DHS for a while, and empty since them.

What's sad is that the building itself is quite sound, but it is chock full of lead paint, asbestos (unless that was removed in the 90's), and the solid brick walls make it difficult to renovate. Any commercial improvement would require full renovation, which would cost many hundreds of thousands, and the building would even then be of doubtful usage.

I was told that at the last auction, it sold for $1. I see it as having negative value. A large fire would increase its value, but still less than zero.

The "Haunted Hospital" is on Central Street behind Tyler's Short Stop. Big white 3 or 4 story building with bars on the windows (the ones that aren't boarded up)
Isnt it also partially red brick on the outside? I dont believe it is all white, least last time I looked. Just checking.

My mother was born there. Place is haunted and creepy on the inside have lots of pics of it. Place was broken into and destroyed. Now the floors are caving in the walls are falling down. Don't get me wrong it's a historical building but I think the best thing to do is tear it down.

Sounds scary! I've never been by this place I don't believe and never went to it when they did the Haunted Hopital in it years back. I would love to go in it and see if it really is haunted. I love scary things like this! Booo...Happy Halloween!

It's nearly as scary as the present hospital, but not quite...
