Was a patient
I was in Harrisburg State Hospital for 5 years. To say that it's haunted, just doesn't really cut it in my opinion. Like others have said there were footsteps, and apparitions. Personally I've heard and seen both. However what really always spooked me was the tunnels. When I had to go to different places that the weather really didn't allow, I went through the tunnels. When I was down there I always felt like someone was watching me. There are little rooms down there that were being used as storage. Old furniture and things were in the rooms. One time, I saw a shadow in one of them. Scared the bejeezus outta me. Depending on my mood I would just talk to them. I'm crazy so no one thought I was talking to ghosts for real. I would only say something like, "Ok, I'm down here so leave me the he** alone." If I would have to go down there alone I kinda ran but at the same time thought it was a cool feeling. I could go on and on about the different experiences I've had there. But I'll just give a snapshot. There was a man in a window in one of the closed up buildings. He was turn of the century (1900's) clothing and the mustache most men favoured then, I had something in my bedroom, I've seen civil war soldiers...Yeah Harrisburg State Hospital is truly hauntedPosted 3/29/20
my scary experience
me and my friends wanted to vist so we did and when we was on top of the stairs we heard screaming from a man like he was trying to leave but we ended up looking the place up to down and nobody was there but it seemed so realPosted 6/29/19
Worked there years ago. I slept over one night after working a double shift. They gave me a room on an empty floor that had the old operating room & was said to have a resident friendly ghost. When I was unpacking my bag I clearing heard footsteps come up the hall to my doorway, like the sound someone wearing bedroom slippers. I called out & then I heard the same foot steps hurry away at a fast pace! I didn't sleep a wink.Posted 7/8/16
