Central State Hospital - Real Haunts in Indianapolis IN
In 1994, the hosptial closed down due to a combination of factors, including the expensive cost of running such a large hospital system and claims of patients being abused. This resulted in the state of Indiana taking back the property and converting it to the Indiana Medical Hospital Museum (IMHM) and other things.
Patients' remains were buried on the western edge along Tibbs Avenue and near the old Pathology building. Today, some buildings still remain on the vacant grounds. While IMHM denies claims of the property being haunted, others have reported otherwise, including the sound of a screaming woman coming out from the corner of the Old Power House basement where workers had to go down to shovel ashes twices a night, sights of shadows moving from cement posts, and the boiler turning on and off on its own. In the Pathology Building where dead bodies were examined to learn about their mental illness, there were noises heard in the basement when no one was there. The dormitories was a place where cries and screams have also been heard by maintenance workers.

Help finding a patient?
My friend and i went to the smaller building across from the hospital and contacted a woman through a oujia board. she called herself “C” and she was 23 when she died. i know it’s not a lot of information but if someone could tell me what the building is called and what it was for, maybe i could narrow down my search to see who it is. if you know, my instagram is @notryland. anything helpsPosted 2/14/20
