This Creepy Sanatorium In Arkansas Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing
Historical and haunting, the Arkansas Tuberculosis Sanatorium resides just outside of Booneville. The buildings are towering reminders of the death and disease that reigned the nation not too long ago. The sanatorium museum routinely gives guided talks but today we’ll offer our own free photo tour to keep your sanity in check.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
