St. Albans Sanatorium -- Radford, Virginia



Black Raven Paranormal investigates St. Albans Sanatorium

Black Raven Paranormal Feature Investigation -- May 2013

Black Raven Paranormal hit the road to travel to Radford, Virginia to investigate St. Albans
Sanatorium.   The location is known as a hot spot for paranormal activity and many claim it
is possibly the most haunted landmark in the state of Virginia.   A very popular destination
for paranormal groups, it has a mysterious charm and appeal.   It is also a maze of hallways,
rooms and passages.   A true paranormal investigator's dream...

Background History
Officially erected as the St Albans Lutheran Boys School in 1892, it was deamed a school where
only the strong survive.   The location was later converted in a hospital for the mentally ill under
the leadership of Dr. J.C. King and forever known as St. Albans Sanatorium.   Medical care for the
mentally ill was quite primitive, experimental and harsh during this time.   Many patients
succumbed as a result of these experimental treatments performed at St. Albans.   There
are also many recorded suicides that occurred on and around the property.

Insulin Coma Therapy (ICT), Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and Hydro Shock Therapy
(HST) were all common treatments and procedures at St. Albans Sanatorium.
