Rumored to have once been the location of a sanatorium back in the 1940s, the hospital was reportedly shut down due to multiple cases of malpractice.

The property has since been fenced off for about a decade, with rolls of barbed wire suspiciously inside the fence, as if to keep something or someone in. The Gates themselves instill a feeling of dread and no one seems to know why the property is fenced up and under close supervision. It’s not uncommon to hear voices or subtle footsteps crunching through the brush near the property.

Due to the rumors of it being the site of a hospital the current owner has secured this fence as it was the back entrance to a separate building that was only accessible through this gate and an underground tunnel in the main building.

The building in question has in fact been found to be covered with cult symbols and red stains around the inside of the building. It is unknown if that was just a prank due to rumors, or if there was an actual cult ritual in the building.

Know Before You Go

The gates are located off a public road, you can just drive past to see them. Don't attempt to get beyond the gate, security cameras are all over the area as well as dangerous razor wire.
