St. Albans Sanatorium

Radford, Virginia

The St. Albans Sanatorium in Radford is a well known haunted destination and has even gained recognition for being one of the most haunted spots on the East Coast. The building once operated as a school for boys, until it later became a sanatorium for the mentally ill. By the 1990s, the services at St. Albans was transferred to another location and the sanatorium closed down for good. Today, the site operates as a historic site and also a Haunted House during the Halloween Season.

St. Albans is supposedly among the most active paranormal locations on the East Coast. Given the number of wrongful deaths that occurred within, it’s easy to imagine why this would become a ghostly hangout spot. People have reported seeing bodied apparitions, shadowy figures, and levitating objects while exploring the abandoned building. Others claim to hear voices or even feel fleeting physical contact with unseen beings.

The ghosts who are believed to linger here in spirit are said to be former patients that once called the sanatorium home, along with former staff members and even some children. It has been said that one spirit in particular, a former member of the staff, likes to keep to the lower level and behaves aggressively toward females who visit.

The Bowling Alley in the basement is known to be haunted by two female spirits, Allie and Gina Renee Hall. Allie is rumored to be the young daughter of one of the hospital’s patients, and Gina was a woman who was murdered on June 28, 1980 somewhere close to St. Albans Sanatorium along Hazel Hollow Road.
