Rancho Los Amigos Hospital
If you take a look at the list of some notable haunted places around the world, you discover names of some abdicated rehabilitation centers, decrepit hospitals and rickety health care units. The ponder-able reason is backed up by an obvious fact that Jimmy Jobs, a psychologist from the Oregon state, discussed with me. Before I share his words with you, let’s know a little about Rancho Los Amigos Hospital that the residents consider one of few real haunted places in Los Angeles.
Built up in late 1880, this place was founded to offer free treatment and medication to poor and mentally infected residents. This county poor farm was encircled in a vast area shared with a farm, dairy, zoo and a pauper’s graveyard. A week of decades later, this large area was left with abandoned structures of everything else except active unit of the Zoo and graveyard. The health care centre was named “Rancho Los Amigos National rehabilitation centre” after it was modified and shifted into a nearby complex.
Few years after the hospital moved to a new place, there left the derelict mental wards with pin-drop silence and darkness. Very often it attracted the paranormal creatures and started to produce signs of a possessed spot. The presence of security guards overnight ensures the security of trespassers that get warned by guards from checking in. However fear lovers manage to get inside and evidences they collected truly establish Rancho Los Amigos Hospital one of the most haunted places in Los Angeles.
After church, most number of spirits resides in a hospital. People have experienced creepy noises all coming from the hall of the haunted Rancho Los Amigos Hospital. Feeling of being touched and seen is the next common experience numerous trespassers do feel.
There are many findings that back up the horrid tale locals strongly believe. U.S. Marines stepped into the leftovers and collected a freezer in the morgue filled with human body parts.

This place is absolutely an epic place haunted by the celebrity ghost of Marilyn Monroe. Even after her death, she is believed to reside at her own property – invisibly having an eye over it. Talking about people’s experiences, some of the visitors captured Monroe’s apparition above them whilst capturing pictures. It’s a surprising fact that leads this reality towards a myth – It happens only when they took pictures in front of the old famous mirror in the lobby.
It would kill your adventurous mindset if you are planning to give this place a visit as this historical mirror had been removed after the controversies. Oh wait, this place still has something a horror lover would hate to miss. On the 9th floor, suite 928, there sleeps the spirit of Montgomery Clift, a late actor, who lived here for three months practicing on his trumpet for his upcoming movie.
This incident took place more than a decade but even today the trumpet sound could be heard coming from that suite – says the guests.
