Ghost Hunt at the Bartonville Haunted Infirmary - Pollak Hospital

 

PLEASE DRESS WARM TONIGHT!  THE BUILDING IS NOT HEATED!!!

SEE YOU AT 6:45-7:00.  [masked] or please RSVP if you decide not to come. Looking forward to seeing all of you!!!

 

UP TO DATE INFO:  I just spoke with the representative of the hospital.  The starting time will actually be 7:00... I hope this doesn't hurt anyone's plans.  We are to park in the circle driveway or on the street between 6:45 and 7:00.  They will be watching for us so we know where to meet.  I'll be there early, so if you have any problems, call me on[masked]-6541.  This should be a very exciting night for all of us!!!   I'm so excited!

 

This tour will actually be conducted at the Haunted Infirmary...across the street from the Bowen Building.  This hospital housed thousands of tuberculosis patients who unfortunately died at the location.  This building is said to be MUCH more 'active' with hauntings than the Bowen Building...   The Bowen Building was actually more of an administrative building.  Cost will be $25 per person.

We are extremely pleased to announce that the 2012 Haunted Infirmary tied for number 13 on the Chicago Haunted House Review TOP 13.

    Can we reschedule sooner? Or in the case they close, will our group still be allowed for the tour?

    February 27, 2013

    • Cheryl L.

      they don't start doing tours until this date. the way it's looking we might not get to go at all. they are thinking of selling....

    Sounds like a great idea. I was hoping they would get their BVed and Breakfast idea off the ground so I could stay the night sometime.

    January 23, 2013

    • Cheryl L.

      i was hoping for that too...but, not sure when that will happen. it's going to take alot of work to get that place in any shape to sleep in!

      January 23, 2013

  • Cheryl L.

    p.s. this is the first tour of the season!!!! should be really fun...the ghosts are friendly...i was there last year and there really was activity!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
