Logan County Hospital

City/Town: Guthrie
Location Class: Hospital
Year Built:
Year Abandoned:
Status:
Photojournalist: Cody CooperJustin Tyler Moore

The Methodist Episcopal Conference began construction on the building in 1925. A Guthrie nonprofit organization purchased the hospital in 1932 and named it Cimarron Valley Wesley Hospital.

In 1946, the Order of the Sisters of Benedict purchased the hospital and completed construction soon afterward.

St. Anthony Hospital , owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Francis of Maryville, Mo., bought the facility in 1964, renaming it Alvero Heights Hospital .

The name was changed to Logan County Memorial Hospital in 1974.

The hospital was deeded to the county in 1977 and a replacement facility opened west of Guthrie in October, 1978.

In 1982, R&T Properties, a partnership of local businessmen Ray H. Riddle and Hal A. Treadwell, purchased the former Logan County Memorial Hospital and its four acres for an undisclosed price from the Logan County Hospital Trust Authority.

The five-story, 55,000-square-foot building, located at 19th and W Warner in Guthrie, was supposed to be remodeled into 50 to 70 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments but the project never got off the ground. Although, the building is said to be haunted, many moves were made to try and turn it into an apartment building without success. Although it looks more like it would be fit for a haunted Paris hotel direct from a movie than a place of living. Many people have claimed to see apparitions in the hospital’s windows. People have had other eerie experiences when they’ve gone adventuring into the building as well. Just like something out of movie set in hotels in London, lights have been know to flicker on and off making for one scary tour.

The OKCPRG-PPRG have been doing research on the property for over 10 years now, covering the entire facility with cameras that have caught numerous bits of evidence over the years. You can read all about their great project at the OKCPRG-PPRG Website.

I hate when they shut down old buildings and say they are to old to be runed. Then they just sit there and rote and fall apart when they were fine to begen with. I know a hospital called Dorthia Dix Hospital in NC. They shut it down because it was to old and it is older than this hospital and it looks in great shape. Have no idea why they closed it down. They are thinking about demolishing the hospital and turning it into a park. This hosptal is 151 years old and shut down a few months ago.… Read more »

The hospital was named Benedictine Heights Hospital during the period the Benedictine sisters owned and operated it.

Growing up in the Oklahoma City area, I have been to Guthrie many times. About two years ago, after buying a new camera, I suggested to my boyfriend that we should go over to Guthrie to try out my new camera. There are so many old buildings there, I thought it would be a great place to take pictures. I had always heard about the old abandoned hopsital, and after finding it, we got out of the car and started walking around the building. This was on a Sunday around 2 p.m. I took a couple of rolls of film… Read more »

I went there back in 2008 during the day and just sat there in my car outside, drove around back and got out and walked around. Nobody bothered me. I got really interested in reading about KAREN SILKWOOD, the Richard Rashke book, 'The Killing of Karen Silkwood' about the events surrounding Kerr McGee and her death/murder. This was the hospital she was brought to by ambulance after she died in the car crash just south of the HWY 33 and HWY 74 intersection. Her '73 Honda Civic going into the concrete culvert on the left side of the road on… Read more »

Oh yes, I remember reading about Karen Silkwood..she was coming to OKC, at the time a Holiday Inn, on NW 39 near Portland..she never made it. The lady knew to much information…I wish I had known that when I was there! Thanks for sharing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karen_Silkwood On the night of the car crash, she was driving alone to Oklahoma City to meet David Burnham, a reporter for The New York Times, to tell her story. Meryl Streep played Silkwood in the movie.

If you go in there now, you can be arrested. There are webcams set up by city officials to keep track of visitors. These are available to the public and they are encouraged to call in any sights of people.

Some friends and I took photos of this place too. I was so hoping your team had been lucky enough to enter but alas, it will remain a mystery. Keep up the good work. Love the site and seeing all the places you've been. And yes I agree the front side is creepier!

Yes, this AbandonedOK place has made the rumor rounds. So much so that a local paranormal team set up 24/7 live webcams so that the place can be constantly monitored for paranormal activity. If you'd like, you can check their webcams out at http://www.researchwebcam.net/
