Mid Orange Correctional Facility

The Paranormal

Are you ready to explore this staggering, sprawling complex with us? Recently investigated by Jason Hawes and the Ghost Nation crew, you can now experience the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility for yourself and see what secrets you are able to uncover.

The employees of what is now known as the Hudson Sports Complex were getting a little freaked out. Hair was being pulled, apparitions were being spotted, voices were being heard and lights were turning on, seemingly on their own. Architects and contractors refused to work in the buildings. So, the Ghost Nation team was called in. After spending some time here, they came away with stories of incredible experiences. 

Disembodied footsteps and voices, unexplained banging and vibrations, doors opening and closing, EVPs captured; this facility seems to be rife with paranormal activity. Maybe you will spot the apparition of a former inmate, wandering through the buildings. Perhaps you can communicate with one of the young men who suffered abuse when the property was a reform school. Maybe there are some prisoners who have never left and are waiting to tell you their side of the story. 

You won’t know until you join us. The question is, will you dare to investigate the fourth-floor chapel – or even explore the seemingly endless rows of buildings?  Book now — if you have what it takes!

The History

Known today as the Hudson Sports Complex, the sprawling expanse of buildings and land has gone through several transitions since the early 1900s. According to records, the site was purchased by New York City in 1914, and an “inebriate farm” was developed to house people with addiction problems, making them work the land. Rumor has it that Dr. Charles Stokes conducted experiments on those residents and once claimed to find a “cure” for addiction. Unfortunately, those records have not been found and it is unclear what kind of “experimental treatment” was used, and eventually the farm was shut down.

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time. Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

By the mid-1970s, the complex became the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility, and remained so until it was closed by the state in 2011. Mid-Orange was an all-male, medium-security prison that held as many as 1,000 inmates in the late 1980s during the “war on drugs”, but the normal population was approximately 750. It was closed when the state decided to consolidate prisons due to declining numbers of the inmate population. 

Its current incarnation began in 2014 when local developers and the Town of Warwick gained ownership of the property with the intention of building a corporate park and sporting facilities. By 2015, 36 acres were being used for several activities including baseball, soccer, field hockey, yoga, and summer camps. The current owners, soccer player Christian Fuchs and his wife Raluca, opened the Hudson Sports Complex in January 2019, and hope to bring new life to the campus with their focus on providing quality, professional athletic training for the community.
