Do you think you could brave the night at a notoriously haunted location?

The Indiana State Sanatorium

Located in Rockville, Indiana sits the old Indiana State Sanatorium.  According to the Indiana State University Library, the Indiana State Sanatorium was once called the Indiana State Tuberculosis Hospital and was opened in 1907.  The Sanatorium had great success with curing tuberculosis and in 1919 the name was changed to the Indiana State Sanatorium.  The old building was abandoned in 2011 but then purchased in 2020 where the new owner sets up tours and overnight stays (IndyStar). With a place that has a notoriously haunted history like the Indiana State Sanatorium, it makes sense that they would often play host to paranormal investigations.  Many are open to the public, and one coming up has your chance to encounter strange and unusual things overnight.


Beyond the Shadows Paranormal Investigation

Beyond the Shadows is hosting a paranormal investigation at the old Indiana State Sanatorium.

An Invitation to the Paranormal:
Join us for an exclusive night at the Indiana State Sanatorium, where history and mystery intertwine. As the sun sets and darkness embraces the land, the gate to the sanatorium groans open, welcoming the brave to uncover its secrets.
The event will take place from 7 PM to 4 AM so you may want to stock up on coffee and energy drinks for this one because I doubt there will be much sleeping.

A Night of Unearthly Encounters

The Night of Unearthly Encounters will take place on two dates June 7th and June 8th.  According to the event page on Facebook, you can enjoy a guided tour, a paranormal investigation, and the freedom to explore and investigate for yourself.
Begin with a Guided Tour into the heart of darkness, where the echoes of the past come alive through tales of its turbulent history, from its opening in 1911 to its final abandonment.
Hands-On Paranormal Investigation: Spend an hour with the Beyond the Shadows investigators. Use real ghost-hunting equipment to communicate with the spirits!
Freedom to Explore: After the guided investigation, the night is yours. Roam the halls, conduct your own investigation, or perhaps, let the spirits come to you.
