The Old York Hospital:
The Old York Hospital is located in the small Western Australian town of York.
The building was built in 1894-1895 and was used as a hospital to help the growing number of ill prospectors from the Goldfields.
The hospital stopped operating in 1963.
But is said by many that the Old York Hospital is home to some nasty spirits.
A former matron who worked in the hospital in the 1920s has said:
“There was always something terrifying about the upstairs rooms. The hospital staff refused to go up there alone. Even when the ward was full of patients, the nurses always did their rounds in pairs.”
In 1980, members of a children’s athletic club and their adult supervisors stayed for a week in the hostel. Late on the first night of their stay, sounds of moaning started to come from inside the walls. The source was never found but repeated several nights in a row. The next morning, during breakfast, a large china jug levitated and smashed to the floor in front of two women. Right after breakfast, two of the youngest children were attacked by unseen presence in the hallway. One of the girls started screaming: “Hold me! Hold me! I can’t sit down! Stop them!” She was then thrown against a glass panelled door at the end of the hall. The impact was so hard it totally shattered the thick glass, gashing her arm to the bone when she tried to protect her head with her hand. She was rushed to the hospital and stitched back together to stop the bleeding. The next day, a boy went into shock when he witnessed a partial human figure materialise out of thin air with its hand on the door knob of the now broken door.
Another person has said:
“My friend and I found an old ping pong table in a small shed at the back of the Old York Hospital. We were playing around with the table when I looked up and saw a woman standing in one of the windows of the hospital. She was just standing there staring down at us.”
One other story tells that a former nurse was raped and murdered at the hospital, although this is just a story.
The Old York Hospital is now privately owned and can’t be entered.
