The spookiest site in Texas is an abandoned hospital 75 miles southeast of San Antonio, according to Thrillist.
As Halloween approaches, the publication named the creepiest place to visit in every state. Yorktown Memorial Hospital, a long-shuttered building that once served as a rehabilitation center, earned the title in Texas.
“The old beds, gurneys, mirrors, chairs, and other medical equipment are still inside, this decrepit abandoned hospital, where more than 2,000 patients died before it shuttered in 1988,” Thrillest wrote.

“Today, visitors have described inexplicable apparitions, whispers, shadowy figures in the hallways, wheelchairs rolling unpushed, and a particularly terrifying talking doll in the nursery that asks, ‘Do you love me?'”
The hospital was built in 1950 by the Felician Sisters, a group of Catholic nuns, and closed in 1986. The facility reopened as a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, before shutting its doors again in the 1990s.
Yorktown Memorial has hosted camera crews from Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” and served as the setting for a 2011 film called “Yorktown” that premiered in San Antonio, according to the Victoria Advocate.
Today, the property’s owner welcomes tours and paranormal investigations.
The Thrillist nod is not the first recognition for the haunted landmark. Yorktown Memorial was included on a viral “Haunted Roadmap” that highlighted several spooky Texas sites, including the Donkey Lady Bridge in San Antonio.
