Reflecting: Old Yoakum Community Hospital, TX

23 May 2016 | May 2016

Here is something slightly different to the usual submission at My Haunted Life Too – Photographic evidence? of something paranormal at an old abandoned hospital in Texas….

Place: Old Yoakum Community Hospital
Address: 303 Hubbard St., Yoakum, Texas 77995

Tour: Unguided on December 5, 2012. Stayed near perimeter, accessed only one room (trespassing damage control, for fear of ruining the general public’s opportunity to enjoy this gem.) Eerie for sure, especially in the cool winter. Nothing definitive…until I looked back at my photos (see photos below.)

Potential Haunts:
Nurse Laura Lynn Hights, 23, murdered on the second floor by disgruntled husband, Gregory Ray Hight, 24. (March 6, 1990)

Fr. Charles W. Kram (1929-2000), a beloved local priest stricken with polio who served as hospital Chaplain for 25 years

Summary: Rural hospital, built in 1922, run by Nuns in 1933, run by different Nuns in the 1980s, and closed in 1997, after the new hospital was built. Abandoned since.

 

Unedited photo, but with overlay indicators to demonstrate window reflection alignment. Looking at the three panes on the left of the photo, notice there are three seemingly reflected lighter spots, one in each pane, two of which (top and bottom panes) are obviously reflecting the adjacent window frames. The middle frame contains an adjacent window frame reflection...and something else.

The altered photo, enhancing CONTRAST ONLY, to make out the image clearly: what, other than the adjacent window frames, appears in this reflection?
