About The Event
In the depths of the 19th century, a shadowy figure known as Sweezy laid the foundation for a mansion that would become Stimson Hospital. The origins of Sweezy himself remain veiled in obscurity, leaving us with nothing but questions. In 1917, a twist of fate led the home into the hands of Harriet Chapman, and the course of history took a chilling turn.
Chapman, together with Doctors Charles Stimson and Francis Blanchard, embarked on a transformation of the home, converting it into a hospital that would bear their names. By 1919, Stimson Hospital was operational, its halls echoing with the sounds of those treated within its walls.
But darkness descended upon the hospital mere months after its wicked birth. One fateful evening, Dr. Francis Blanchard, stumbled into the unforgiving void of the hospital's empty elevator shaft. His fall into the abyss led to his untimely demise, and though hospital staff rushed to his aid, it was too late. Dr. Blanchard became a part of the ghostly whispers that now echoed through the hospital's history.
However, Harriet Chapman and Dr. Stimson, persisted in their efforts to keep the institution functioning. For decades, Stimson Hospital served as a place where thousands of newborns took their first breaths and countless patients sought salvation in the ER, until the 1950s, when more modern facilities beckoned the local populace and Stimson was abandoned to the darkness.
The mansion was later partitioned into apartments, but the remnants of the hospital's malevolence endured. The elevator continued to stand, an embodiment of the horrors that transpired within. Its ominous presence remained until a devastating fire consumed it in 1976, leaving only charred memories of the hospital's sinister past.
It comes as no surprise that the spirits of the hospital's founders refused to rest, their souls still wandering the halls. Dr. Stimson, most frequently encountered in his office where he met his grim demise, continues to haunt the place, with eerie whispers and chilling electronic voice phenomena echoing through the desolation.
Upstairs, in one of the former patient care rooms, the specter of Harriet Chapman lingers, her mournful wails a constant reminder of the horrors that transpired within the second-floor chamber.
Photographs taken within Chapman's treatment room reveal strange apparitions, sparking debates among paranormal enthusiasts about the identity of the lost souls trapped within. And deep in the basement, the ghost of Dr. Blanchard makes his presence known, a lingering soul that chills the marrow of any who dare venture there.
The basement itself is a cauldron of paranormal activity, a place where souls manifest in inexplicable ways. It remains unknown whether Dr. Blanchard's phantom is solely responsible for the sinister occurrences. Paranormal seekers often try to make contact with him in the vicinity of the abandoned elevator shaft, capturing hair-raising EVPs in their pursuit.
Throughout the accursed Stimson Hospital, paranormal activity is an omnipresent entity. The weeping from Harriet Chapman's room and the haunting laughter of spectral children haunt the hospital's grim halls.
Adding to the unknown is the ghostly presence of a phantom feline. Whether it be the forlorn sound of meows or the eerie sensation of a cat brushing against your skin, the hospital's ghostly feline is known to beckon visitors from beyond the grave.
