There were 2 old hospitals in Buford. The oldest is a day care, my daughter worked there and never saw anything out of the normal. The other hospital was just a small hospital that was only open about 20 years or less. As for being haunted I doubt it. The haunting stories come from children`d tales. Buford was formed until 1870. Neither is a private resident.

The Hospital is creepy to say the least and it might be haunted. i`ve been in there once and the flashlight died and back at the car it was fine.

i was there recently and our fully charged digital camera was dysfunctional. there is grafitti all over the place and a portion of the building is burned down. At one point one of our group members touched a fire alarm and we heard sirens. as we made our way outside the sirens got louder until the sound pulled into the parking lot. There was no emergency vehicle in sight. footsteps and banging on boarded windows were reported by numerous members....

I went last night with a another guy. and we distinctively heard a voice saying hi. but when we turned around nothing was there. and we said hi back but nothing answered. Despite popular opinion no hobo`s live there or have for a while. we also had a few times where our hair just stood on end with no explanation.we also had welps and cuts all over our bodys when we were there, but as soon as we left they went away. there are 2 floors and what appears to be a storage room on top. but there is no easy access to it. we are heading back monday to go in the storage room. once we got home we both had dreams. the other guy had a dream of the hospital while it was open. but then it suddenly changed to the way it is now. and he had an accurat tour of the place. including the top room that we havent been in yet.
If anyone is interested in going or has more information email me at coolguyseven@hotmail.com.

I just recently went this weekend twice!
and nothing happened either night.
but I got some really interesting photos.
its really hard to breath in there.
we are going again and this time we are wearing masks over faces. the first night was really creepy though.
i`ve heard that lights do go out...such as flash lights and such. nothing happened!
maybe becuz I said a prayer and that we were in a group of about 30.

For those of you who have visited the place, where do you park your car? I'm a little concerned about the police patrolling the area.

I went to this place about a month ago. There are no ghosts, no hobos, or anything abnormal. There's grafitti all over the walls. The majority of the rooms are empty. No old hospital beds, no book of records, and no ghosts. We had a video camera and recorded the whole thing and our camera never died. This whole battery draining of flashlights and cameras is a load of bs. The place is really nothing special. The city is doing some work on the place right now and cleaning it out and idk what they are doing this for, but there are tarps over the majority of the walkways now. The hospital is one story with a basement. In the basement there's a boiler room. Cops ddo patrol this area very frequently. I wouldn't reccomend going there, it's nothing special. it's actually very boring. But if you really want to go, don't park on the street or in the library parking lot. When I went we parked in the parking of the Housing Admnistration Building on the street behind the hospital and no cops showed up, but we were only there for an hour and we explored the entire hospital, every single room. The only place we didn't get to was the storage room on the roof bc we couldn't find a way to get up there. If anyone knows how to get up to the storage room please email me and let me know at pink_watermelon_xox@yahoo.com. Thanks!

they tore it down and i know the ppl who claim they were the reason. they said they had sex there covered in fake blood, and so i guess with stains, some person must have gone there and found blood, and called for help. turned out to be fake and so they decided to tear it down, caz they were tired of dealing with ppl there, mostly teenagers hanging out there

Maybe they are talking about the house on main street that used to be first an asylum and then a funeral home and then a private residence? My friend's parents rented the place... There is STILL an embalming table in the basement... Trust me.. been there, seen it. VERY creepy.

Asbestos is why it got torn down. We were investigating an old cemetery right around the corner when a cop came and checked on us to see what we were doing there. He let us stay and told us the building is unsafe and will be torn down soon due to asbestos in the building. This was about a year ago or longer. Ok now the person who said they heard sirens in the place im freaking out because we heard them also and hid in a room thinking it was the cops but i know it was the fire department i can tell the difference in the sounds. So strange that it did sound like it stopped in the front of the parking lot.But we never saw lights flashes from their lights we were right by a window that lead out to the road outside the hospital. I cant explain that one and i also can say we have gotten several great evp,s plus one pic where something was coming out of the wall a light of some sort. There were double doors that led to a receptionists desk and one night we kept hearing something up in the ceiling moving around and sometimes heard responses as knocks to my questions i was asking. Terrible such a great place to investigate is now torn down

So now that it is torn down, where would the spirits be? In the ground? They don't just disappear or move next door do they? If I go to the empty lot at night, will I see anything? What do you think? Anyone want to go?
To the person who knows where the residence that used to be a funeral home and possibly an asylum, where is that house?

I work in Buford and have been by the hospital many times.  As a few others have said, it was located behind the Buford Library near the intersection of Buford Dr and South Lee Street.  The county tore it down in late 2010, and the hospital is now an empty field.

While I never saw anything paranormal, it was a cool building for urban exploration.  There is a lot of graffiti and empty rooms; along with a padded cell down in the basement area.  I have tons of pics, need to get around to posting them on the website one of these days!
