Personal Experience at Atascadero State Hospital

This experience was reported by one of Ghostly World’s readers. It is based entirely on eyewitness testimony.

I saw three ghosts while working there. My home, which was adjacent to the grounds, was also haunted. One that was seen in the dayroom, usually early morning 4 AM – 6 AM, was standing over a table reading the paper, usually seen by non-usual staff. Units 16, 17, and 21 were haunted. The whole place reeked of evil. It was and is a very dangerous place to work. I won’t even stop in the town if I pass it on the freeway.
