Paranormal tours planned for old hospital
For seven nights in October the doors of the “Old Hospital on College Hill” in Williamson, West Virginia, will re-open to welcome “patients” back into its hallways. These historic paranormal tours will take guests through two floors of the building and offer a haunting glimpse into the hospital’s past.
Reservations are required, according to a spokesman for the Tug Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Tours are from 6 p.m-midnight Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 18-20 and Oct. 25-27, and Wednesday, Oct. 31. Tours will occur twice per hour, and each tour group will be limited to 10 “patients.”
Tickets are $15 for ages 6 and older while kids who are 5 and under will be admitted for free. Ticket sales have been going fast.
Tours offer stories and guests can witness some chilling scenes. For an additional $5 per person, folks can take an exclusive elevator ride up to the fourth floor for a photo op and more haunting information.
“I would just like to say that I believe adding an attraction like this to the Tug Valley area could provide a huge economic boost for the area,” said CVB board member Tonya Webb. “It will bring in visitors from all over who will want to learn more about our area, stay overnight, shop and, of course, eat here. We have a lot of hidden gems in this area that we need to capitalize on.”

The Halloween project is sponsored by the Tug Valley Area CVB and Williamson Memorial Hospital.
