I revisited the Hall-Bennett Hospital because someone told me there was a way inside. Previously, I had tried all the doors and had come up empty handed. This time, I was able to get inside and photograph this creepy hospital.

Church through a broken window.

Parts of the hospital were well lit, mainly where the boards were not covering the windows. Other areas made me glad I decided to pack a flash.

Down the hallway

Once again with an abandoned building, it seems the “taggers” had a field day in here. Writing stupid things on the wall and drawing obscene images. Do they really think that’s funny and cool? I find it extremely frustrating and annoying as a photographer. The majority of photos I upload don’t have their “artwork” because I don’t think it should be recognized. *end rant*

An escaping machine.

What shocked me most about this hospital was the amount of patient records and resumés that were laying on the floor all over the building. I’m not sure why these weren’t packed up when this hospital closed.

Dirty hallway

    My wife and I have been passing by this old hospital pretty much every day trying to decide when to go in. We want to take some photos and do a shoot inside. My question for you is how were you able to get inside?

      I’m not sure I would recommend going inside now. A few days after I went in, the place caught on fire and a lot of it burned. The flooring in the upstairs section didn’t seem very stable at the time, so I’m sure it’s a deathtrap now! There was a window on the east side that was open when I went in. It’s been boarded up since the fire. I’m sure any other openings to the inside were closed up after the fire as well.

    We went by today. It’s fenced. Unless you willing to trespass there’s not a legal way in. Bummer.

    I have purchased this building and I would appreciate it if people would stop trespassing. It is now alarmed and I don’t want anyone to get in trouble. After we have stabilized it, we will accept photography requests.

    1. My step father Dr. Sherman Merritt used to read X Rays there my mother was an X-ray tech and my aunt Lydia Molina worked for Dr. Thomas for YEARS! My sisters and I were born there in 61,63,66. Dr. Worthy was our pediatrician. I was Blessed with the privilege of having her care for one of my 4 children as well. I drive by there sometimes when I’m in town! God Bless you

    I grew up going to see Dr. Worthey at this hospital. She was the daughter of one of the founding doctors’, Dr. Bennett. We lived in one of the first concrete foundation homes built by Dr. Bennett on 1610 S. Main St.
