These Ghost Hunts In A Former Arizona Hospital Aren’t For The Faint Of Heart
Hiding in the near-abandoned town of Ajo, Phelps Dodge Hospital saw thousands of miners and gravely ill children meet their demise. Due to this tragic past, it is believed to be a hotspot for ghostly activity and has been visited by paranormal groups, ghost hunters, and even the investigators on Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures”… and there is some pretty compelling evidence that it is, indeed, haunted.
Now, you also have the opportunity to join the hunt, as two different businesses, Ghost Hunts USA and Paranormal Dares, are offering two separate dates to take you inside and explore its haunted halls. Whether you’re a believer in the paranormal or are the world’s biggest skeptic, this overnight ghost hunt is full of spine-tingling excitement. Are you brave enough to see what lurks within its hallways?
