The Abandoned Hospital

Andrés & I spent this past weekend in the mountains again, meeting with the pastor, the florist, and the wedding coordinator to finalize some wedding details. Since my parents completed their vacation home in the mountains, I’ve wanted to explore the abandoned building we drive by each time we make the trip. We think it was part of a nearby hospital in the ’60s and ’70s. I can’t find any information online attaching this building to the hospital, but what we found inside convinced me. There was an entire room (the one photographed twice with the lacy curtains) covered in old files, linen orders, and memorandums. It was quite fascinating.  These were all taken with and edited on my iPhone, by me.

    I’ve been meaning to share with you: I hope you covered your mouth with some cloth or something during this visit. Now that I’ve shared that motherly concern…. these photos are amazing. Yet, they are eerie. Do you think it’s haunted?

      Haha! No, we didn’t cover our mouths. Even if this was the TB hospital, TB can’t survive without a host for the bacteria. Lead and asbestos are dangerous when agitated, so we were careful not break things or peal paint. The building is actually well ventilated — there are open exterior doors and broken windows all over the place, as well as a huge chunk of ceiling missing.

      I don’t think it’s haunted. I believe in things being haunted, but I’ve never experienced anything supernatural myself, so I wasn’t scared. At night it would probably be a lot more creepy. We were in broad daylight.
