Old South Pittsburg Hospital
South Pittsburg, Tennessee
While there are many places in Tennessee that are considered “haunted,” Old South Pittsburg Hospital (OSPH), which opened in 1959, consistently ranks as one of the “most haunted” locations. Once a functioning hospital, which means the everyday life-and-death dramas of its community often played out inside the walls, the building’s location itself is interesting. It is built over a suspected underground spring, common in this part of Tennessee. Legends say that, during the Civil War, the land was a base for Union soldiers who participated in the Battle of Chickamauga-- an intense nearly 2 days of bloody fighting with over 34,000 estimated total casualties.
People have many stories of alleged paranormal activity at OSPH: inanimate objects moving seemingly without cause, disembodied voices, and apparitions of nurses and doctors. The current owners also report experiences of a small child, referred to as “Buddy” trying to entice visitors to play with him.
