The history of St. Albans Sanatorium starts well before the building being built. The land that St. Albans sits on was host to both the Shawnee and Cherokee tribes as well as what is known as the Drapers Meadow Massacre of 1775, an event in which five deaths occurred on the land.In 1865, the land saw more blood during the Civil War with Union forces defeating Confederate forces in the area.

Originally built in 1892, St. Albans was founded originally as a Lutheran Boys School. This school was reputedly rough, where bullying was encouraged. Numerous deaths occurred during this time on the property, with a few of the deaths being ruled out as suicides.

In 1916, the school was converted from a boys school into a hospital for the mentally ill by Dr. J.C. King. Seen as “superior” at the time, the hospital still saw many of its patients die at the hands of their doctors via unstable experimental treatments.
Today, St. Albans operates as a Paranormal Investigation Facility; offering Public, Private, and Guests investigations. More information, history, and rental information can be found at their website.
