Point of Interest Details

From 1914 to 1960, this building was used to treat TB patients and was reopened as an infirmary in 1961. Rumored to still be occupied by spirits of the dead patients, this sanitarium is now off-limits without permission. It is no longer used due to its degradation and exposed asbestos. There are many other hospitals like this around, however. The Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie was built using infirmary buildings and is said to have strange presences. Out west, Lodi and Perrysburg both have paranormal connections to tuberculosis victims.
