Winchester, IN is home to one of the most haunted places the world, Randolph County Infirmary. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Built in 1899, the Randolph County Infirmary’s mission was to serve poor and indigent people of Winchester Indiana and surrounding areas. Today it remains a very haunted and ghostly building. Spirits from the past abound in this place, as they do in many of the infirmaries, asylums, and so called “poor farms” of that era. In simple terms, the infirmary served as a homeless shelter, foster home, psychiatric ward, and even rehabilitation center. Death followed for many of those people seeking refuge here. Accounts of tuberculosis. Accidents, old age, and suicide were common. Then there are also stories of mistreatment and abuse at times. To add to this, there is even a cemetery on site, with fifty plus unmarked graves. The ghostly activity here is “off the charts”, and the creepy, crumbling structure only adds to the experience. Destination America’s Paranormal Lockdown filmed an episode here.
