Rolling Hills Asylum is the #2 Most Truly Haunted Location in the USA!
This October - Commit yourself to a 3 hr Psych Hold at a Truly Haunted Asylum with Real Ghosts!
Established January 1, 1827 as the Genesee County Poor House, with the addition of the Genesse County Infirmary in 1938, then converted to the Genesee County Nursing Home in 1964 (affectionately called "the old county home" by the locals) it was originally a working farm that became a hodgepodge community for the castoffs of society. Referred to as inmates, the residents included widows, orphans, civil war veterans, Native Americans, drunkards, mentally and physically disabled, even criminals. With over 1,700 documented deaths, and hundreds, if not thousands of others unrecorded, the unclaimed dead were buried on the property’s own potters field. Now famously known as Rolling Hills Asylum, the 300+ years of history has resulted in hundreds of spirits still roaming the halls of the 54,000 sq. ft facility, making Rolling Hills Asylum the #2 most haunted location in the USA!
Some of the spirits you may encounter on your visit include Roy, the nearly seven and a half foot shadow man. Roy’s great height and huge mass make him an imposing sight as you see him blocking out door ways or making his way down the long, desolate hallways. Raymond, the former head of the maintenance department, is often seen in the long, dark tunnel on his way to the basements boiler room. Though on the surly side, Raymond can often be heard whistling as he bangs on the pipes in attempt to get the heat going, even though the heating system has been defunct. Cecil, the first private owner, tends to slam the heavy metal doors in the old west wing infirmary, though upon exploration, none of the doors have been closed.
Rolling Hills Asylum's plethora of paranormal activity has made it a sought after location for many of the top paranormal shows including SyFy's Ghost Hunters as well as Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures and Paranormal Challenge series. Last fall, FX filmed a six part web promo for their American Horror Story "Asylum" season.
Known for an abundance of Class "A" EVPs, it is not unusual for spirits to call out visitors by name. Full body apparitions, shadow people, disembodied voices, and the infamous "Screaming Lady" send chills up the spines of even the toughest of the tough guys. Anyone can make it through a theatrical haunted house with actors--- but can you make it through a night in a truly haunted Asylum with REAL Ghosts?
