TAUNTON STATE HOSPITAL, TAUNTON

Taunton State Hospital, or the State Lunatic Hospital at Taunton as it was formerly known, was abandoned in 1975. In the 1800s, there were rumors that the hospital was being operated by a Satanic Cult who would take patients into the basement to conduct dark rituals and even human sacrifices.

There are apparently still some strange and unexplained markings on the walls of the basements, and while the hospital was still open, staff would attempt to go downstairs into the basement area only for them to feel something physically stopping them from reaching that bottom step!

Staff also reported seeing a shadow man who would crawl along the walls and often lurked in corners watching the patients!

The most famous resident of Taunton State Hospital was probably serial killer Jane Toppan who killed more than 31 people while working as a nurse.

It is no wonder this abandoned hospital is thought to be one of the most haunted places in the US!
