One of the Tar Heel State’s most historic treasures sits within steps of the bustling urban center of the state’s capital city. This abandoned hospital in North Carolina, once known as the one of only two hospitals between Atlanta and Washington that provided high-quality care for African Americans, is a sobering sight. Today, St. Agnes Hospital in Raleigh is a beautiful and haunting relic of its former self and a somber place to pay respects to those who passed through the doors and to those that didn’t pass back out those same doors.

Have you ever visited this abandoned hospital in North Carolina? Please be aware that even though the majority of the images seen in this article were captured in early 2021 and seem to have no barriers between the public and the stone structure, the most recent 2021 Google images map shows there is a new fence surrounding the entire property. No doubt it is to protect the public.
