The Story Behind This Evil Place In Kansas Will Make Your Blood Turn Cold

This Memorial Hospital in Hardtner opened in 1941 and closed in the 70s is the site of plenty of creepy feelings, and a few peeks at a ghost. What do you think about this evil place?

The story of Achenbach’s paranormal activity is an extensive one. The “bloody” foot and hand prints aren’t real, but definitely add to the mood in the right mindset. On the third floor, a toilet flushes with no one in the room, and the elevator moves like it’s being used. Cold spots litter the area, and your skin crawls as you feel like you’re being watched. Of course, who might be watching but Charlie Achenbach, a shadow spotted standing in several rooms on the third floor.

Other creepy areas that don’t include actual sightings are the morgue in the basement, and the trashed areas of the building. On the first floor, the men’s room is always cooler than anywhere else in the building. In addition to chills, you’ll always feel a presence following your every move, like you’re being watched.
