I went to this place with my friend yesterday to go to MassHealth. I didn't know anything about the place, but as soon as we turned into the parking lot, i started to feel uneasy. Once we walked into the MassHealth building, i noticed small "offices" with hinges still on the doors and the front desk looked like it used to be a nurse's station where they distributed medication. I also saw another building where there is a daycare and thought how i would never send my child there (if i had one). This is when I knew I needed to come home and check out the internet and see if I could find something out about this place....all I have to say is CREEP-Y!
I have lived near the Tewksbury hospital for 33 years and this place is incredibly creepy and no doubt haunted. I was walking the grounds near the old cemetery about 15 years ago when an old man screamed at me to get out of here I saw the man and then he walked about ten feet and was gone. I was scared as ever but explored further to try and find the guy who seemingly disappeared. I left with a strange feeling of despair that stayed with me for a few hours. Odd, creepy and definitely scary.
I have worked at Tewksbury Hospital for a many years and have been in every building, every tunnel, on the roof, in the old morgue the place is electric with paranormal activity. I have seen shadows, voices, footsteps and cold breezes when investigating the tunnels...
The John J Nichols building has always been a place to see spirits as a matter of fact one Sunday afternoon years ago I saw a blue shining mist appear down in the basement where everyone eats it came thru the wall from the back of the building & went right out the window toward the employee parking lot.
About twenty years ago me and a co worker crawled thru a window & investigated the old chapel when knowbody was there... We popped a lock and went right to the top of the steeple then pushed the door open and I stepped outside it was so frigin high It is funny because when you look at it it doesn't seem that high but I could see all of Tewksbury !!Good place to watch a ball game on the East street feild. The weird thing that happened that day was unexplained footsteps and as my friend took a turn standing outside on the steeple I looked at the door to the steeple & somebody had carved their name and left the full date and it was exactly to the day 100 years prior...
Here is a laugh for ya !! I am doing a paranormal investigation there tomorrow with my new digital recorder !!
Hopefully I can get some documented EVP'S
Actually, I had a good Investigation at the Hospital on Sunday 1/17/10 !! I found the Pine Cemetary and took some cool pics I put one on my profile of grave # 154 and did an EVP session and asked if the person who was at grave # 154 could give me their name as I was touching the grave plaque but got not response but the howling of the wind... It actually felt really peaceful out there it was about 38 degrees that day so if I was being touched I might not have noticed it... I also went down to an old abandoned tunnel and took some pics and asked if anyone wanted to comunicate that was exhilerating because when you speak in this tunnel it has an Echoooooooooo...I also asked if Agnus was there to come and speak with me but never heard a peep just a distant echo... I have a pic in the tunnel of a shadow figure but I need it to be enhanced so I can truly see what I documented that day...
As I do investigations at this site I will post what I encountered because I know there have been alot of people saying that they have had encounters but I don't think any of them were bold enough top do an investigation on their own !!
A few friends and myself got busted by the rent-a-cop or whatever that patrols the grounds some years back when trying to explore. We were just inside the old main hospital building. The gound level bathroom wall had collapsed which allowed access.
