- Built in 1950, the hospitals' motto was "So that more may live longer," though the facility saw more lives lost than saved.
- Over its forty years of operation more than 2,000 people died within the walls of Yorktown, which finally locked its doors in 1998.
- Among the many tragedies here was the discovery of a body on the front doorstep.
- The ghost of the expired addict, now only as "T.J." is said to rap the glass and ring the entry bell outside.
- In addition, a double homicide occurred in the basement when a female counselor and patient were bludgeoned by another man who spattered their blood on the walls.
- The sound of the attack can still be heard drifting up from the lower levels.
- The lone caretaker has seen shadowy figures moving through the ward and glowing red eyes glaring out from the darkness.
- Many visitors have reported being punched, kicked, and slapped by unseen forces inside the building.
- In the chapel, the malevolent spirit of a nun is even said to choke intruders, especially men.
