Bethany, NY is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Rolling Hills Asylum. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Rolling Hills Asylum, located in Bethany, New York has earned the well-deserved distinction of being one of Americas most haunted places. Located in Northwest New York, this sprawling property and enormous structure was established in 1827 as a almshouse, which can also be called a poor farm. Through its years of operations, it also functioned as an infirmary, orphanage, tuberculosis hospital and nursing home. With estimates of at least 1700 bodies buried in unmarked graves, you can see why this place may have ghostly activity. Add to the mix that many people housed there were mentally unstable, orphaned, or even criminals, and you can only imagine some of the “treatments” given in that era. Shadow ghost, recorded disembodied voices, and multitudes of other paranormal evidence have been uncovered there.
