Haunted Hospital For Sale!

12 Apr



Old Logan County Hospital

If you had to go to the hospital, would you come to this one? It was state-of-the-art back in the 1920’s in Sterling in northeast Colorado.  It was built to accommodate victims of the flu epidemic that ravaged the entire country at that time. The county morgue was located in the basement level.

Today it sits abandoned, with some of the only “living” things being the dandelions that are popping up in the Spring. Of course there are “things” there that are no longer among the living, like a little boy who will tug on the sleeves of those brave enough to walk its hallways at night. Then there are the old rotary style telephones still sitting on unoccupied desks, ringing for someone to pick-up even though they are connected to nothing. Maybe someone is trying to call the old man that visitors claim to see standing at the base of the front steps.

916 S. 7th in Sterling, the old Logan County Hospital, was bought by a Precision Investments LLC earlier this year. I don’t have their email or phone, but here is info on their LLC from the Sec of State’s office. I was no longer the listing broker when it was sold, so I have no info on their plans for the building. I can tell you that I did not allow my own paranormal team to investigate it, as it was in dangerously bad condition at the time.

      Great to hear! Thanks ever so much for the update. Wonderful to know these old buildings can have a new life; just hope the ghosts don’t bother anybody!

    Hi Paul, is there more pics, also do you have a current evaluation on the facility. Also have any of the so called hauntings ever hurt anyone? How many acres are included with the facility and what type of buyer are you looking for?


    • Paul Hill April 16, 2015 at 11:47 am #

      Adam, I am a paranormal investigator and also the listing broker on this property. If by “evaluation” you mean an appraisal, no there is none, as it has not been financed by anyone in many years. The current price of $80,000 is = the current estimated market value by the county assessor. The building sits on just over 3/4 of an acre. I have no knowledge of any incident where someone has been hurt on the property by any entity. Ideally, we’re looking for a cash buyer, as financing may be hard to obtain on this kind of property, and one who would either rehab the building and occupy it as a residence or rent it out as an income property, OR use it for any legal business purpose, which could include a meeting or medical/mental health center, a paranormal research or public attraction, etc. If you’l like to discuss it confidentially, click on the Contact Us link, above right. Thanks for writing!

        I was also born in this hospital. You are full of bull.


        • Paul Hill September 4, 2016 at 11:00 am #

          Why am I full of bull? You don’t believe in ghosts?

    Is this property still available?

      Yes it is. If you’d like to discuss it confidentially, click on the Contact Us link, upper left…


  7. Jennifer Louise April 14, 2015 at 7:13 pm #

    I live in Edmonton, Alberta and we have a couple of abandoned hospitals as well that are highly haunted. My sister is a nurse. One of the hospitals she worked at had the old hospital still standing on the grounds of the new one. No power or any services to this abandoned building but at night the security in the active hospital would get phone calls from the old one. Severely creepy.


    • Paul Hill April 14, 2015 at 10:22 pm #

      Jennifer, thanks for your comment. Yes, hospitals are a source of many a restless spirit. Tragic death often results in the generation of ghosts, and hospitals concentrate that kind of energy by their very nature. And it appears ghosts like to make phone calls!


  8. Margaret Allen April 14, 2015 at 4:01 pm #

    How do you just do a visit ?


    • Paul Hill April 14, 2015 at 4:49 pm #

      Margaret, as a property for sale, its not set up yet for visits, only showings for pre-qualified buyers. A new owner may want to set the building up as some kind of public attraction, but that would be up to them. Licensing, insurance, and all kinds of issues come into play when you’re talking public access. Thanks for asking!


  9. sam April 14, 2015 at 2:46 pm #

    Who do I contact about buying this property


    • Paul Hill April 14, 2015 at 3:35 pm #

      Sam, that would be me, Paul Hill. I am a paranormal investigator and also a real estate broker. To talk confidentially, click on the “Contact Us” link in the upper right. I’d be happy to answer your questions.


  10. Bonnie Fuller April 14, 2015 at 8:42 am #

    What year did this hospital close as a hospital?


    • Paul Hill April 14, 2015 at 3:41 pm #

      Bonnie, I don’t know exactly when the old facility closed, but it was replaced by the now operating Logan County Hospital in Sterling. I have to talk to the County this week to find out a few more things. If I can find out from them when the old one closed, I’ll let you know. Thanks for writing.


  11. Ryan Frick April 13, 2015 at 7:35 pm #

    so many memories haha, it would be nice to see someone do something with this place


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 9:21 pm #

      Ryan, thanks for your comment. Obviously you know the hospital well? Would you like to share any of your memories of the place? Your stories would be appreciated.


  12. Matt Lohner April 13, 2015 at 11:55 am #

    Do you have more pictures of the property. I’m looking for a great location for a drug and alcohol treatment center. Please contact me with a link to more pictures or send them to my email. Thank you.


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:17 pm #

      Matt, I have only a few more photos right now; I have to get back there and do a complete photo sweep during the daytime. I’ll send you what I have later, and let you know when I have more.


  13. Matthew April 13, 2015 at 8:52 am #

    That place isn’t haunted at all. I grew up literally 3 1/2 blocks from the old hospital, on Denver St, and a childhood friend lived in the house next door. Anyways, I’ve spent many nights in there over the years without so much as a goosebump. It’s not haunted. It’s just hype.


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:13 pm #

      Matthew, you may be right; it may be hype. I personally won’t know until I’m there and investigating. But let’s say I and my team came up with nothing–that still does not “prove” that there are no ghosts there, only that they were not evident the night we were there. Ghosts are transient paranormal phenomena; they come and go, but no body knows where they go when they’re not there! That being said, I can tell you that any old hospital, or prison, or asylum; any building where dozens or hundreds or thousands of people died, usually under tragic or violent circumstances, can very well be haunted by their aftereffects, either residually or interactively.


  14. giftedlover April 13, 2015 at 4:55 am #

    I have often wondered about this property, you see I recently moved to Sterling, and was told about this place by a friend of mine, about all the ghost stories, and also about all the work that needs done to the place. But if you can, look on the brighter side of things, the building itself is structurally sound, and the architecture is simply charming, the only major work that would have to be done is getting all of the lead pipes replaced, and repairng the roof, because, from what I have heard is the roof has collapsed over most of the entire top floor, I’m sure that the right person would be able to buy this building and fix it up, fix it up and make it a beautiful place that local Sterling residents and others from all around just to get a glimpse of our gohsts our


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:04 pm #

      Thanks for your optimistic response! Yes, any ugly duckling can turn out to be the beautiful swan with the right attention and effort. That’s why we’re looking for the buyer who can do exactly that. It appears to be worth saving, whether haunted or not.


  15. Carla Crane April 13, 2015 at 2:21 am #

    I am very interested in this place. As I am very seasoned at Paranormal Research, things that go bump in the night don’t bother me. My question is, how much acreage is with it! I would want to be able to build a barn and have my horses at home with me. I need to have something to help me de-stress while remodeling and rehabbing this wonderful building!


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:21 pm #

      Carla, thanks for writing-in. I will get the exact lot size and get back to you. If you’re interested in having horses, I’ll also have to find out if the property is zoned as such. Bear with me, I’ll get back to you in a few days, max!


    • Paul Hill April 14, 2015 at 10:58 pm #

      Carla, the building sits on just over 3/4 of an acre. It is within the city limits of Sterling, so I don’t know if they would allow horses. Let me know if I can be of further help…


  16. tjt072 April 13, 2015 at 1:24 am #

    I so wish I had the money to buy this and fix it up. Come on lotto numbers 🙂


  17. yvonne sanchez April 12, 2015 at 10:09 pm #

    Who do I talk to about buying it

  18. Betty April 12, 2015 at 9:48 pm #

    80,000 dollars is a lot of money for a building that was declared unfit by the Health Dept to have a haunted house for Halloween last year.


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:02 am #

      Betty,80,000 is a lot for anything. In the case of real estate, where for example the average price of a very average house in the Denver area is now around $300,000, it seems like a deal. I am aware of the story about the Halloween house attempt last year, but remember that the group who was putting it on was in the process of cleaning up and decorating it right up to the day before Halloween when they got the “no go” order from the Health Dept. Evidently they thought it safe enough, but the Health Dept nix’d it due to the probable presence of kids. I agree that children should never be exposed to anything dangerous, but that includes lots of things. Anyway, the Health folks cited the probable presence of lead pipes, asbestos insulation, and vermin. That’s a pretty accurate description of any old abandoned building, but it doesn’t stop re-habbers from spending some money on their investment and re-purposing what would eventually be a blight if no one stepped up to make the property an asset to the community.


  19. Jess April 12, 2015 at 9:40 pm #

    Forget the ghosts, if you buy it you’d have to live in Sterling. Good luck with that.


    • Paul Hill April 12, 2015 at 11:50 pm #

      Jess, thank you for your comment. Yes, one should like where one lives, but a buyer doesn’t have to want to live in the property to buy it. They may want it for paranormal research, a meeting center, or whatever other commercial purpose. The good folks of Sterling, like many small towns on the plains, could use an invigorating real estate investment.


  20. Dawn April 12, 2015 at 9:11 pm #

    i have been in this place and it’s not the way he has described it’s completely different and falling apart it’s not that haunted either


    • Paul Hill April 12, 2015 at 11:46 pm #

      Dawn, thanks for your comment. You’re right, it is falling apart, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be rehabbed and re-purposed by someone. Re the legitimacy of the haunting; I don’t know, as my team and I haven’t investigated it yet. Did you click on the links in the post? They go to websites with stories about the alleged haunting; at this point I am only repeating what I’ve read and heard, which is where most ghost stories start!


    • steve April 13, 2015 at 2:15 am #

      Ya u dont think its haunted go in there at 3am like we used to when we were younger take a voice recorder and on your way out invite anything in there to follow u home then tell me it ain’t haunted


    • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 3:16 am #

      Dawn, the links I had in the post to other websites discussing the haunting mysteriously disappeared; so I reposted them. Check ’em out!


  21. ghostbusterbev April 12, 2015 at 4:32 pm #

    This property sounds like my kind of place. Would make a great setting for a conference for spiritualists, mediums, readers, paranormal investigators, and other like-minded individuals. I can see people traveling from all over to attend. A great selling feature!


    • Paul Hill April 12, 2015 at 6:05 pm #

      Beverly, all we have to do is find somebody with money who believes in ghosts! Know anybody?


      • Tuffy April 12, 2015 at 9:45 pm #

        A friend of mine bought it probably around 10 years ago…He worked on the boiler for heating and got it working and fixed plumbing on main floor..and lived there for over a year..the building does have ghosts! the ghosts would bother him at night…would make a wonderful bed and breakfast place…that’s what my friend wanted to turn it into, a rock n roll bed n breakfast and have the rooms decorated for different rock stars…his health declined and forced him to move in with his daughter…


        • Paul Hill April 12, 2015 at 11:54 pm #

          Tuffy, alleged hauntings have to be ultimately witnessed and documented, otherwise they are just stories. Just because an older building looks haunted, doesn’t mean it is. If your friend told you about the presence of ghosts, and he was not the “hysterical” type and/or didn’t believe in them before, than they have some credibility. Thanks for your input!


        • steve April 13, 2015 at 2:21 am #

          Yes only i believe his health problems may have been caused by the (ghosts) witch i believe to truly to be demons first hand experience there recordings and everything also did something stupid and invited anything to follow use and it was a very stupid idea


          • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 12:02 pm #

            Steve, whether the ghosts are really demons perhaps pretending to be ghosts is a tough call. Any place showing signs of a demonic presence has a reason for such entities to be there, which may have nothing to do with the ghosts who may or may not be there. So one would need a pretty solid reason to think any phenomenon is demonic instead of just “paranormal.”
            I don’t imagine you still have those recordings?


      • ghostbusterbev April 13, 2015 at 8:21 pm #

        I think of Lily Dale…how it got started. One family of mediums physically moved their house to a small community and made history…now over 40 mediums live in Lily Dale NY and it has become a spiritual learning centre. If only I had an extra 20 years to spare and an extra $80,000!!


        • Paul Hill April 13, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

          Beverly, I’m pretty sure you’ll have the extra 20 years. The 80 thousand I’m not so sure. But that would be a great use for the place, wouldn’t it?
