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/.

Haunted Loon Lake Cemetery. Ever go to a Cemetery You Thought Haunted?

Loon Lake Cemetery NotificationHaunted Loon Lake Cemetery…or is it?

I’ve never actively gone to a cemetery to see if it was haunted or not, but there is this very old cemetery in the area by Loon Lake which is reported to be haunted. Well, I couldn’t resist and I dragged my significant other there this last month to check it out.

Sadly many of the headstones were stolen. I really don’t get why someone would actively vandalize a place or thing. It just seems strange to me. Also, who would want someone’s headstone in their house or backyard?

Well, I brought my handy EMF device and we went a hiking. It was a beautiful day. The area is near a lake and pretty isolated. I clicked on my device and….

Nothing. Not one peep. There was actually a sign posted near the gate stating ‘There Are No Ghosts’ in the area. I’m Haunted Loon Lake Cemeterysure the locals were trying to keep vandals away.

So my afternoon was uneventful but I managed to get out in the fresh air and get some needed exercise!
