Nopeming Sanatorium buildings rumored to be haunted

Yikes! It’s Monday again. I was recently invited to visit Nopeming Sanatorium in Duluth. Ghost Adventures from the Travel Channel has done an episode on the sanatorium. In the early 1900s Nopeming was built as a tuberculosis hospital, but then later became a nursing home until the building was abandoned in 2002. It’s reported to be haunted and actually has day and night tours. My friend of course wants to do the night tour.  It looks pretty scary from some of the images I found on the Internet! I’m sure if he twists my arm hard enough, I’ll go. lol

Thousands of lives were lost to tuberculosis in Duluth. It is also reported that several people committed suicide by throwing themselves from the balconies of the building. The owners over time had to install metal bars on the windows to stop any further suicide attempts. As for hauntings… it is believed the ghosts of suicide and tuberculosis victims haunt the rooms and halls.  Nopeming Sanatorium hallway


Reports have been made of shadow figures in the tunnels, disembodied laughter, moaning, screaming along with other unexplained noises.

If you want to learn more of the sanatorium you can visit this site which has a wealth of information. Actually you can do a search of Nopeming Santorium and it will come up with many different sites on the building and its history. The official site is here.

Below is a historical postcard from Dan Turner and the hallway is from http://www.nopeming.com/.
