History

This is the second hospital built in Butte and was founded by the Sisters of Charity out of Leavenworth in 1884.

It’s original mission was provide care for the poor who had no where else to turn.

Medical operations ceased in the 1960’s and a new more modern hospital was built. Until the 1990’s the lower levels were used as offices and residences in the building.

Ghost Hunts and Overnight Investigations are now run occasionally by Haunted Rooms; please see link above.

 

Paranormal Activity

Apparitions of former staff and patients; shadow figures; cold and warm spots; disembodied voices; phantom sounds of babies crying; objects moving on their own; light anomalies; electrical disturbances; phantom footsteps and feelings of being watched and not being alone.

The entire building is said to have a very eerie energy that is perceptible even from outside.
