The sun is shining, and the year is 1931.
The residents of Mineral Wells had no idea the Holy Sisters of Nazareth were making their way to this “Crazy” Haunted town to take up a life that would make a name for this small town in Texas.
With Minerals Wells already known for their “Crazy Water”, yes you read that right, this historic town has something so special in the water that hundreds of thousands of visitor’s flock here yearly.
And before you think that the “crazy water” is a myth, you simply have no idea…when you visit, and you will, make sure you take some home with you and find out why it is so special.
Let’s go back to 1931.
With the sisters climbing 7 floors, 14 flights and 126 steps, they settled into the top of this 46-room hospital, with an entourage of doctors and janitor.
Who knew that many of them would spend their final days in the Nazareth Hospital caring for the sick and those in need.
Many of them were unaware of what was about to unfold over the forthcoming years, and how much they would be needed.
The Nazareth Hospital would become a beacon of hope in Mineral Wells and no one could have predicted the events that would embed into these walls and remain unexplained.
Welcome to the Nazareth Hospital, sorry we meant, the Haunted Nazareth, and former Sanatorium Hospital.
The Holy Sisters bought the building for about $135,000 which would equate to more than $2 million today. The sisters were unaware that the land was used as a Bordello, and on that subject we will leave that part right here….
It housed its own crematorium which still sits on the site today, which was last used around the 1940’s – 1950’s.
You will soon understand that love and care was a fundamental part of the hospital.
In the 1960’s the hospital added on the name “sanatorium”.
This mighty building was a beacon of hope, protection and love, and it even survived two major fires!
Every inch of this hospital had a purpose, and every floor was used to its full potential.
The 1st floor housed Tuberculosis, Polio and Psychiatric Patients.
The 2nd floor was originally designated for administrative purposes.
The 3rd floor was used as the Chapel and patient rooms.
The 4th floor was the labor and delivery room.
The 5th floor was the surgical units.
The 6th floor Nun’s quarters
The 7th floor was occupied by the Priest, until he was relocated to the property behind the crematorium.
It is no wonder why the Nazareth Hospital has a haunted reputation, those very unique people who worked here still haunt this building, and those unfortunate souls who lost their lives still wander the very empty corridors.
Do you have what it takes to walk in the shadows of those departed?
The haunted Nazareth Hospital and Sanatorium is one of the most haunted locations in Mineral Wells, Texas.
This huge seven floor structure, houses some incredible paranormal activity. You will soon understand why the Nazareth has the reputation that it does.
Turn the lights down low, kiss your crucifix and sit in silence and you will truly hear those “non oiled” wheelchairs screeching past the room, and we aren’t kidding!!
The Nazareth is embedded with residual and intelligent energy.
You will be followed from room to room by those that still haunt the corridors of this Hospital.
The basement, which is the Nazareth’s Haunted House attraction, seems innocent and fun, however, take a seat and see how you feel after twenty minutes.
The paranormal experiences in the basement alone has had many guests flee and refuse to re-enter this building. Is it those poor TB patients that passed or is it the former psychiatric patients, that want to come and say hello?
These former patients know how to get your attention, with the the cries coming from all floors.
Many guests, investigators and visitors have been fortunate enough to see the apparitions of former nuns.
Now let’s get to the 5th floor, one of the most foreboding, darkest and harrowing areas you will ever visit. For this reason you will have to be accompanied in this area and you are not allowed to be left alone.
The Nuns not only dedicated their lives but also there afterlife to walking these corridors.
Whilst you are here, you may be lucky enough to meet “Vern” one of the more boisterous spirits. Be sure to hold the railing on your way towards the basement, he’s been known to trip guests off the last steps.
