History

The Sanitarium was constructed by Nathan Boyd in 1910 as an isolated spot to house Tuberculosis patients away from the growing city of Las Cruces. His primary patient was his wife who he thought the mountain air would cure.

Unfortunately, mountain air failed to cure his wife; nor would it cure all the other tuberculosis suffers who came to the sanatorium.

Sometime in the 1940′s the location was changed into either a mental asylum (probably an urban legend – it was used to be an insane asylum is almost as common as Satanic Rituals took place here) or into another Tuberculosis sanatorium.

Either way rumors of experiments on patients began to surface including beatings and people left abandoned in the mountains. The site was closed and left abandoned.

 

Paranormal Activity

Apparitions of former patients and staff. People camping nearby have reported nightmares of what life was when it operated as a sanatorium. Feelings of being watched and of general unease are reported.

Other activity: unexplained cold spots; feeling of touched by unseen presences; light anomalies; disembodied voices and shadow figures.

One of our investigators has visited this site and sensed an eeriness and a feeling of being watched.
