History

Winchester, IN is home to one of the most haunted places the world, Randolph County Infirmary. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

The History

The Randolph County Infirmary was built in 1899 and its mission was to serve poor and indigent people of Winchester, Indiana and surrounding areas.

The Hauntings

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. 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. Randolph Asylum has been featured in 2018 & 2019's World's Largest Ghost Hunt! (http://www.nationalghosthuntingday.com/) They are truly passionate about saving old properties and find that haunted tourism is certainly an avenue to help the voices from the past come through to keep their history alive.
