Built in 1892 by Montreal based Roman Catholic organization, Sisters of Providence, the St. Ignatius Hospital served eastern Washington until 1964 upon the opening of Whitman Community Hospital. The facility employed nurses and functioned as an assisted living home until 2000, then was officially shut down and abandoned in 2003. In recent years the hospital was opened for public tours after rumors of being haunted and was even featured in an episode of Paranormal Lockdown with Nick Groff. Unfortunately for us, the facility was on full lockdown, boarded windows and doors, and ‘No Trespassing’ signs posted around the building. The tours offered are sold out and there’s no contact information on the current groundskeepers listed on the website. Enter at your own risk.
