|San Jacinto Memorial Hospital stands on a hill on Decker Drive and looks like a place the Munsters would inhabit.|
|The once proud building now houses vagrants.|
At the front door is barren planter. Well, not completely barren, as it has empty whiskey and beer containers, and refuse. The grass is over-grown, windows are busted out and mosquitoes swarmed me when I tried to get close enough for photographs.
|San Jacinto Memorial Hospital was built to honor WW II Veterans.|
Some of the comments made concerning the photos I took are these:
- MAN THAT LOOKS LIKE A WAR ZONE...
- That place certainly has major creepy vibes! When we got the geocache there, I couldn't wait to leave!
- So sad to see it in such bad shape.
- Is someone living in there? Why they keep knocking out more windows? Sad nothing was done with this building.. wud hv been great loft apts even with the GHOSTS that call it home. That hosp had the only morgue in this area. Even when it was a hospice....the strange noises and sitings in the basement are legend. My daughter worked down in the pharmacy during hospice times....LOTS of stories...and people who refused to go back.. but to just let it crumble...with the weather thru broken windows...is a shame...
|At the entrance are empty whiskey bottles, trash, beer cans, and debris.|
- City council would rather the city fall down around us.
- Well it is unsafe....not/boarded up...no/telling what or/whom is going on in there...but it wud hv to be one brave person to be in there after dark.. COULDN'T PAY me to walk around in there.. I am telling u some weird stuff happens....maybe that cud be the attraction and people come for miles to get scared the crap out of u..
- Bet they don't hang around long after dark....NURSES use to refuse parts of that bldg. When it was hospice, there was a cat....and right before someone passed away...the cat would go lay with them. Even the Drs were noticing and paying attn to the cat... I still think loft apts wouldd be great... dang bldg withstood many a hurricane.
|Mosquitoes swarmed me when I approached the building to take photographs and I waded through knee deep grass.|
