Every city has its own ghost stories; legends about haunted buildings, children-eating monsters and other spooky tales that have been passed down from generations to generations. In Perth, there is one famous building that has received countless of ghost citing stories.

The Old York Hospital, which is located at the east of Perth, in West Australia, is one of the scariest buildings in all of Australia. This old hospital is home to some terrifying paranormal activities.

Surrounded by trees, this hospital opened in the year 1896 for accommodating the sick miners of goldfields. It soon became a major institution for ailing people in the district for it has its own morgue and surgery room.

The hospital stopped its operations in 1963 and remained abandoned for 13 years until the National Trust acquired it. It was during this time that paranormal activities started, and soon after, 20 years, the building was sold due to the consistent ghost hauntings.

Several Australian ghost hunters have ventured in the old hospital and each one of them brought home creepy pictures. There were shots of unusual flares that were not visible to the camera but appeared in the pictures, creepy shadows and a person looking over his shoulder and staring at the camera.

It was rumoured that a matron was raped and murdered in the building — one of the reason why it is haunted. Some say it was because of the miners that died in the hospital.

Several ghost-sighting confessions are found in the internet but nothing beats the story of the children’s athletic club that stayed in the building.

According to some Perth ghost hunters, back in 1980, a children’s athletic club stayed in the hospital — it was change into a hostel. The athletic club heard moaning from the walls during their first night. On their second night, one of the girls started screaming saying, “Hold me! Hold me! Stop them, stop them!” The haunting still continues up to this date.

Painter in Perth, a leading painting company, found out that the creepy hospital’s colour scheme might have trapped the negativity brought forth by the past. Grey, with resemblance to black, tends to create a low atmosphere thus inviting animosity between and amongst the surroundings.

Hence, Perth Painting notices that the building was sturdily built and painted to last for decades. That is probably why people still make an interest after all the horror stories in the building.
