This North Dakota Sanatorium Is Among The Most Haunted Places In The Nation

There’s no doubt about it: North Dakota can be a pretty spooky place. To celebrate this high strangeness that’s uniquely our own, let’s take a look at one of the spookiest places in North Dakota, if not the entire country. This terrifying place will send a shiver down your spine just by its appearance alone. This is considered the most haunted spot in the entire state, and you’ll want to stay far, far away from it…unless you’re like us, in which case, you’re going to want to check it out if you ever get the chance.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

As mentioned before, the San Haven Sanatorium is on private property, and due to the neglected nature of the buildings, it’s highly dangerous to visit. We do not recommend exploring it yourself. However, one cool way to experience it without ever stepping foot in it is this eerie yet awesome drone footage taken on the grounds. Creepy stuff – we love it!

Where are some haunted places in North Dakota?  

Some people consider North Dakota to be one of the more haunted states in the US, and honestly, we’re inclined to agree. There’s a lot of genuinely spooky places here that’ll make your hair stand on end. For example, Riverside Cemetery in Fargo is said to be absolutely teeming with spirits, and if you’re brave enough to bring an audio recording device with you at night, you might just capture some truly creepy EVPs. In Fort Totten is the super-haunted Fort Totten State Historic Site, whose purpose has changed a lot throughout the decades, though the ghosts have remained all the same. In Harvey, visiting the public library is only for the brave, as the Harvey Public Library is said to be haunted by a woman named Sophie. If any of these locations pique your interest, you might want to check out this awesome haunted places in North Dakota road trip!  

Where can I go ghost hunting in North Dakota?  

There are tons of allegedly haunted places all over North Dakota, but unfortunately, many of them are on private property and are thus inaccessible to the public. There are, however, plenty of places said to be haunted that you can enter, and many even offer tours specifically to search for the paranormal. Fort Totten State Historic Site is one of those; during autumn, they offer awesome ghost tours of the property for the Halloween season, and said tours are a blast! You can also check out the former governor’s mansion in Bismarck, which offers daily tours all year and plenty of ghost stories to boot. You can also try your hand at ghost hunting at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, more specifically in the Custer House. Think you’re brave enough to do one of these tours? What about a ghost hunt conducted all on your own? We double-dog dare you…
