Mineral Wells TX is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Nazareth Hospital. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The building that houses the Nazareth Hospital was built in 1927 and opened as the Crazy Hotel. The Holy Sisters of the Nazareth purchased it in 1931 and moved into the top floor to live and minister to the patients. It operated from 1931-1956.
In the late 1980s and most of the 1990s, the Nazareth housed the Palo Pinto County Service Corporation that included Head Start, JTPA, Emergency Food Program, Civil Service, Social Security, and the Family Planning Center.
The facility was used as a retirement home from 2008 until it went out of business in 2010.
Texas Scaregrounds Mineral Wells runs a haunted house attraction on Fridays and Saturdays in October and the first weekend in November at the old Nazareth Hospital building and it is available for private tours and paranormal investigations.
One story says a man who died after jumping into the elevator to avoid being discovered fraternizing with the laundry women. He was caught in between the closing doors and died. People report seeing him by the elevators at night.
There are many claims of strange ghostly figures, sounds, and smells. The asylum that was in the basement was said to perform questionable medical procedures during the early 1900s, which allegedly lead to the deaths of a couple of patients. Legend has it that the spirits of those very patients still haunt the building.
Other sightings include a woman in white roaming the exterior of the building and a group of men playing cards.
