St. Louis City Hospital Stories
My friends and I went to St. Louis City Hospital the other night around midnight and we got a few shots. Although the hospital is being reconstructed and is fenced all the way around (as there is no longer a way to get inside and I'm sure if you do you'll be in some major trouble with the law) there is a way to get in through a small gap in the fence, but my advice is to not go in or even to attempt. This is not a secluded area and I'm sure the neighbors would be all to happy to call the cops. I wouldn't take my chance with the neighbors either, it's not a very nice neighborhood and there's the chance someone could pull a gun on you. When we got there, there were no lights on at all except in the part that the construction crews were working. I'm sure that there are construction members staying on the site during the night as well for security reasons. As we got to the east terminal it was pitch black and we couldn't see anything except for the street lights reflecting on the building and we took a few shots (Photo 1) which was the east wing. We took a four second exposure on this photo (Photo 2) of the same building and we drove up to the entrance of the building and we got this shot (Photo 3). Remember that there were no lights on as you can tell in the previous photos and we don't know how the lights got in there. Our only regret is that we couldn't get into the building, as this is what we really wanted to do but the circumstances are such that we (or anyone else) are not able to. We took a few more photos but we didn't find anything else that was strange. We left because it was getting too late and much to wet (the mud around the building sinks if you step on it). The only other strange thing that happened is the next morning when I woke up. I got a phone call from a friend of mine that I hadn't talked to in over two years because he had moved and he called me to inform me that he was back in St. Louis and living (of all places) across from the hospital.
I use to visit Lafayette Park when I was a young girl. I loved it. When I got older, I moved away and didn't visit the park for years. So one nice spring day I decided to go visit the park. Everything was normal until I was walking closer to the really big tree. I stood there for a minute to admire it, but the more Iooked at it, the more I felt it was drawing me to it. On the other hand, I just thought it was a strange feeling, and I didn't go nearer to it. But it was a good feeling, I just was a little frightened of it, because I never felt it before.
I saw some of your pics and thought I would send you mine. I used to live really close to the area and I was drawn to the old state hospital, and the stories. This place is a legend in its own right. I Don't believe that condos are the best way to go with a historical building, with all inclusive tours and the stories that made this place famous to St. Louis would suite the building and the cities revenue much better. There is some freaky stuff that I found in the windows and about the building when the pictures were put into my computer. I'm sending them all and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. These pics are about 5-7 years old. The ones of the widows blew up very well and the other did not. Look to the second window on the first floor. past the pillars. I also assure you that thing above the building was not in the picture when I tool it. I would have noticed a flying object that size. I did have chills walking around this building. it was about 5:30pm on a weekend. I also have pics of the psych ward but saw nothing weird about them. These pics are the main hall and the part you can see from the highway as you drive past. Photo 1 Photo 2 Photo 3 Photo 4 Photo 5 Enjoy
