This Creepy Sanatorium In Maryland Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing
The Glenn Dale Tuberculosis Hospital and Sanatorium was a health facility located in Glenn Dale, MD that closed it’s doors in 1981, due to asbestos. After several proposals of possible renovation or demolition fell through, the creepy facility still stands to this day. The campus has several buildings, all of which are dilapidated, infested with wildlife, and splashed with graffiti. Rumors swirl about apparition sightings and other haunted happenings throughout the halls of the institution. No matter what you believe, one thing is for certain… there is no place like Glenn Dale Sanatorium in Maryland.
