Many of you know about Herdklotz Park — located at 126 Beverly Rd. — but do you know the haunted history of the Greenville Tuberculosis Hospital, which once sat on the park’s grounds?

The Greenville Tuberculosis Hospital was used to treat hundreds of tuberculosis (TB) patients from 1930s to the 1950s. A cure for TB wasn’t discovered until the 1950s.

If that history doesn’t send a shiver down your spine, it also served as a psychiatric hospital and a prisoner release site for some time.

In 2001, most of the building was burned, and later demolished. The basement door was sealed up and a playground was built on top of it. You can still visit the basement door + read about the history on the plaque that sits outside it.

Is it really haunted?

Visitors have claimed to hear strange sounds on the playground, including banging, screaming, and the sound of unseen bells. At night, people have spotted shadows + some people living nearby have claimed to see these shadowy beings in their homes.
