The horrifying reality of government run sanatoriums is a dark place in our human history. It’s intriguing and terrifying to learn the stories of those who suffered and died of the terrifying disease, pulmonary tuberculosis.
Old Idaho Tuberculosis Hospital, is another beautiful architectural reminder of this period in our past. As featured on Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures.
Once called the Idaho State Tuberculosis Hospital, the state of Idaho started the long work in 1941 and six years later it opened its’s doors.
Every patient that came to the hospital always unfortunately knew that they may not leave this hospital, is it these poor souls that still haunt this hospital?
The paranormal experiences are encountered on a daily basis by the owners and also by the staff that work here. Voices are often heard from rooms with no guests, and the attic is meant to be one of the most active and harrowing areas.
It is also suggested that when the hospital closed its doors, it was turned into a mental Institution.
Full bodied apparitions, shadow figures, voices, doors banging, knocks, whistles are just a small amount of the paranormal experienced here.
One of the most frightening reports is that of a man who seen in room 20, he appeared very angry and upset and many staff now refuse to enter this room.
There has been a number of reports of a dark energy, where does this energy come from? Is it from the hospital days? Or the asylum days?

It’s one thing to visit a “haunted” location by day but to actually spend the night in one is another story. Today, the Gooding University Inn operates as a quaint little resort in southern Idaho. The century-old structure is bursting with history, but it’s also considered one of the region’s most haunted destinations. Newly renovated and welcoming visitors with open arms, the structure doesn’t seem very haunting. However, you never know what you might come across after a night spent in this ex-hospital.
Located in the middle of vast swaths of farmland is the Gooding University Inn and Resort. It may not look like much of a resort from the outside, but it welcomes visitors all year long who are looking for a retreat in southern Idaho. However, this building also contains a creepy history that has some people saying it’s haunted…
The structure was built in 1917 when it was first established as Gooding College. At the time, Gooding College was the only place of higher education in Idaho in between Caldwell and Pocatello. However, the school shut down in 1938.
The structure opened back up in the 1940s when it was converted into a tuberculosis hospital. It was considered one of the most advanced hospitals to specialize in TB in the entire country during its time but it closed down officially in 1976.
After remaining empty for many decades, the structure opened back up in 2004. This time, it was known as “The Get Inn Bed and Breakfast”. This unique B&B capitalized on its haunted reputation and welcomed paranormal investigators to spend the night. Numerous ghost hunting groups have tried their hand at exploring the ex-hospital for any sort of ghostly activity.
In fact, investigators concluded that the building is indeed a hot spot for paranormal activity. Witnesses have reported seeing apparitions of an old man in a white coat along with a woman with a young girl. Mysterious whispers and footsteps down empty hallways are also a common unexplained occurrence. There’s no doubt that this building saw a lot of pain during its time as a hospital, and it seems that some patients have never really left it.
