In 1939, this 1930's hospital suffered a typhoid fever epidemic and more than 50 patients and staff members died. The hospital was later renamed the Manteno Mental Health Center and it stopped operations in 1985. The complex then became business rentals, a bank, part of the Illinois Diversatech Campus and even a private residence. Witnesses have reported apparitions of patients and nurses and ghostly voices that come over the nonfunctional intercom system.

  • Not really there anymore

    The buildings that were the most active were demolished in 2002-2003 The other buildings there have been renovated and the grounds is now a facility for troubled teens/psych facility. In other words it's no longer Manteo state hospital and it's a waste of time.

  • Definitely haunted

    Being a physic medium I can say there are a lot of lost and confused souls who wander the halls and grounds of the hospital.

  • Been there, done that

    Went with a bunch of friends several times, back in the late 90's...got some interesting photos, but nothing out of the ordinary. Lots of rotting equipment laying around, some falling apart hospital beds, even found old fliers and a few patient records. Creepy? Maybe. But definitely sad, loads of defilement and used condoms (gross, people!)...but no ghosts.

  • Creepy but nothing out of the ordinary

    Me and my friends went there one night, while it was extreamly creepy most of the fear came from us psyching ourselves out. We were probably more afraid of getting the cops called on us for trespassing. If you are willing to potentially get in trouble with law enforcement it is a really creepy place to go to. I don't do scary things that well but if you're in for the thrill it is worth it.
