Glenn Dale Hospital was located in Prince Georges County in Maryland but abandoned in 1981. It was built in the 1930s and served primarily as a tuberculosis sanitorium, housing adults and children in separate buildings. In total there were 23 buildings, two of which were used for treatment. It later became a hospital for the criminally insane and was eventually closed in 1981.
The following videos are a little scary and concentrate on the haunted aspect of the hospital. Of course many of the abandoned buildings that have featured here are the subject of rumours involving ghosts and other such legend. Not for the faint of heart so be warned before pressing play!
Below are some stories about the alleged hauntings in Glenn Dale Hospital –
There were underground tunnels running from building to building. When the hospital closed in 1981, many of the patients were turned out onto the street. With no relations and no money, they would return to the abandoned Glenn Dale, the only home they knew.
Today, Glenn Dale is condemned and dangerous. The police patrol the area. Asbestos runs rampant. Upper floors have caved in. Also, there are tales of strange things happening.
One of them involves a police officer who was checking the area out alone. Someone across the street heard gunshots and back-up was brought in. They found the officer standing, frozen, staring straight ahead, unable to speak. He had shot off all his rounds at something that was never found.
The morgue is supposedly a hot spot for paranormal activity. It’s located deep inside the main adult hospital building. People have reported hearing strange noises in the hospital and seeing the ghosts of patients who died there.
The hauntings seem to take place in the two structures closest to the road on your right. Most doors and windows have been broken out and abandoned medical equipment is scattered everywhere within the buildings. Sightings have included a large pack of ghost dogs, ghostly patients wandering the second floor, and smoke coming from the crematorium.
People have also complained of noises such as banging and yelling coming from the hospital walls hear screams and sometimes laughter. Inside there is sometimes a strong odour of burning flesh and smoke coming from where they used to burn the bodies. In one particular room there is said to be sightings of a man in a straightjacket who went insane after watching his family being murdered by an intruder to his home while he hid in a closet. He was so overcome with the guilt that he didn’t help his family that he went insane and eventually killed himself when he broke into the room where they kept the medication and overdosed.
