Group set to capitalize on apparitions at Yorktown Hospital

Don’t go in there: a (possibly) haunted nursery in Yorktown Hospital. Inset: one of YH’s many eerie hallways.

Since opening up to the spirits of Yorktown, Rogers also said she has been in steady contact with the spirits, even claiming to have spoken to her with dead husband Shawn, who was murdered in 2005. Surprised by nothing now, Rogers likens the Yorktown experience to that TV show “True Blood,” wherein there is a new cast of creatures every week.

So far, the city of Yorktown has not allowed the site to be commercialized (there are no utilities, therefore it’s not up to “code”). According to Mike Henson, the groundskeeper, potential ghost hunters enter at their own risk. After arrangements to visit the decrepit hospital are made, he opens the doors for interested parties and lets them do their own thing.

In his own particular brand of understatement, Ross said Yorktown is “a great old building, full of stories and intrigue.” To get an inside peek, you have to make an appointment. •
