Haunted Hospitals

Glenn Dale Hospital

Glenn Dale opened in the same era as Fairfield State – the 1930s was a popular time for mental institutes, apparently. Well, actually, Glenn Dale wasn’t originally used for that purpose – it was a tuberculosis hospital with one building for adults and one for children. Eventually the tuberculosis problem died down and Glenn Dale was repurposed. It closed in 1982 due to asbestos and structural problems, but before it closed it was (supposedly) home to the criminally insane. As with Fairfield State, the buildings are connected via underground passageways, which people have been exploring since the day Glenn Dale officially closed its doors.

Exploration might not be the best idea, though, and not just because of the asbestos (although that should be an obvious deterrent). One rumor says that when the hospital closed, the remaining patients were just turned loose. Having nowhere else to go, many of them simply broke back into the abandoned buildings and lurk there even today.

Another story goes that a police officer went to check out the buildings himself after getting a call that the buildings were being vandalized by a bunch of kids. After he went in, someone in the vicinity heard gun shots and called the police. When the police arrived, they found the first officer standing in one of the rooms, staring straight ahead at nothing. He had emptied his gun firing at something that no one ever found.

RIP Ben "Gill Man" Chapman


At the time of this writing, details are slim, however, we received word this afternoon that
The Creature from the Black Lagoon's Ben Chapman passed away this morning in Hawaii. He was 82. Chapman was best known for his role in Jack Arnold's 1954 Universal classic as the titular monster, albeit in his land-bound form. (Ricou Browning portrayed the Creature underwater.) Standing at 6-foot-5, Chapman was born in Oakland, California. His first screen gig arrived in 1950 when he had a brief part as an extra in MGM's Pagan Love Song.
