An abandoned hospital, a college dorm, an isolated country road. North Dakota is full of haunted places, here are seven of the most chilling.
San Haven Sanatorium – Dunseith
Wails from a ghostly infant, dark shadows, mysterious orbs, and apparitions are just a few of the strange things said to occur at the historic San Haven Sanatorium. The 104-year-old hospital once housed tuberculosis patients, as well as mentally impaired men and women. No one’s sure how many people have died at San Haven, though estimates range in the thousands.
Sage Hill Bed and Breakfast – Anamoose
Sage Hill was once a quaint schoolhouse but is now a charming B&B. And like many historic inns, Sage Hill is reportedly haunted. Legend has a cigar-smoking spirit haunts the 88-year-old building. In 1996, workers tasked with renovating the old schoolhouse noticed the strong scent of a cigar, though no one on the job site was smoking. They also heard eerie moans. Today, guests have experiences of their own. Strange happenings include lights flicking on and off, moving items, and phantom scents.
