This single-story building was built in 1968, was last used in 1996, and contains approximately 11,383 square feet of space. The building is situated on approximately 5.1 Acres. The former nursing home includes 29 resident rooms and 4 baths. Resident rooms are 10-feet by 17-feet in size.  Pawnee Care Center was a nursing home located in a small neighborhood. It was referred to as “A lost cause.” Many patients or relatives of patients were displeased with the hospitality starting about the late 80’s or 90’s.  Many people started to use other nearby nursing homes. Finally when Pawnee Care Center only had three residents left, they had no choice but to close the facility.  Now the Care Center sits in the ground at a slant slowly decaying.

Let's not forget that Brown opened fire on that boy after running into the Pawnee Care Center with no back up, after being barely grazed by the knife. Let's also not forget that all of this took place while small children were playing in their yard mere yards away (4 of them were mine).

I grew up there so I think this is cool that someone finally posted some stuff from pawnee and skedee valley. My great great aunts house there on hwy 18 is one that is haunted as well, though will have to have family permission to take pics, can't go inside because it is too dangerous floors are giving way.
