Built in 1925, this was originally the Wesley Methodist Hospital. Years later it was acquired by the Sisters of Mercy and renamed The McAuley Hospital. In 1982 it was remodeled and started a new life as the Ken Keyes College. Since then is has changed hands several times and now stands empty and for sale. (City of Coos Bay, Coos County, Oregon). I have heard many stories over the years of the scary things that take place inside. A few years ago, I found out for myself. 3 of my girlfriends and I had to test the theory. We entered and explored everything except the basement. We kept hearing strange noises, as if some one was down there. Naturally we were too scared and left. Before we did, we explored the entire rest of the building. The very top room was the creepiest. Wooden bars on the window of the door, as if it was a prison type room on the roof. Only room on the story. the elevator was stuck between 2 floors and the place was trashed . Written on the wall of one of the rooms was, ''So pretty I had to eat him.'' We explored bathrooms, Shower rooms, bedrooms, a kitchen with the creepiest wall paper ever, and corridors that seemed endless in the dark of night. The entire place smelled of cold metal and dandelions. The whole entire time, I had the creepiest feeling of emptiness. Come to find out later, my father was actually born there. I want to go back in the daytime and check out the basement. Totally a hot spot for our area. - Ghost picture submitted by KO

Comment by Andrew:
I live close by there in Coos Bay Oregon. I always wanted to go inside there and check it out but never got the chance to. I did an essay paper on it in my last year of high school and found a lot about the old hospital.
Maybe someday I will finally get my chance to find out what's really going on in there.



Comment by Kate:
I live in North Bend (right next to Coos Bay) and my brother went in there at night with his friend.. He found a thing that you put bodies in to preserve them. I really want to find out if it's haunted or not.
I can't because I am young and my parent wouldn't let me. But me and my friends are going to find out if it's haunted or not. I hope it is because then we find out why, who, or what is doing the haunting.
I love solving mysteries. It is a very creepy place and I hope that I can explore there someday....



Comment by Andrew:
Maybe we should together. I still live in Coosbay Oregon. I am really interested in that building. Please reply back soon. Thanks.


Comment by Tom:
My friend and I want to go ghost hunting there, anyone else curious?.


Comment by Breanne:
My dad was born here lol. My grandma stayed there for a little bit before and she said she saw nuns walking around the hallways. I went there with my friends before and we just stood outside but it felt like you were being watched by someone inside the building.


Comment by KO:
I am trying to find information on the owner of the building. I would love to take a tour :).


Comment by Lori:
Me and my 4 siblings were born here while growing up in the sixties.


Comment by Guy:
I lived in that building from 1993 to 2001, and I can tell you it is haunted. However, most of the stories you hear from the trespassers who broke into the building are lies. There are no places where bodies were stored, no bars on windows. The room on the top is an old swamp cooler ( old time a/c). The basement of the house part is not haunted. It is a boiler room.


Comment by Homeless:
I was the night watchman of the place this year back in Jan and Feb and I have been in the basement and it was the only safe way inside the building it is very haunted and there is something very wicked living in the boiler room.


Comment by Anthony:
My dad got to go in there back in the 90s.

This is a 'Picture' of the Wall Paper that was the 'nursery' 3rd floor! From, June 2011 to March 2012, I was 'Leasing to Purchase' these buildings (3) with 4 floors, there is no basement! Ground Floor to 4th Floor, with some 'small' buildings on the Roof! I created a NonProfit called; 'Walk the Talk' a 501c6, to provide 'low cost' housing and 'high end' housing, plus the wooden building on the east side as a 'Professional' Business Call Center! But, the 'Downtowners just did not get behind the N/P Organization, and City Hall put up every 'Roadblock' that were legal, and questionable to stop the project! In my opinion, plus the 'lessee' wanted more money~ Bummer!
For your Theme; Ghost Sightings, I personally did not see any, but I'm protected by the 'Holy Spirit' and the 'Unholy' cannot attack me! I did feel, Positive Energies, and never felt threatened! That not to be said, other's experienced many other feelings and sighting, plus the Paranormal Group, that investigated the buildings did detect unexplained voices, sounds, and temperature, air density changes, for no reason! This is the Truth to the best of my experiences in the Walls of the Wesley Methodist Hospital (1925).

Comment by Anon:
When was this photo taken? As this just so happens to be a quote from a Scott Westerfeld novel titled Peeps, about a virus that turns people cannibalistic that was written in 2005.


Comment by Kate:
Notice how there is blue painted over black paint. This had to have been written after that book came out I mean anyone could have wrote it. But then again some creepy things did go on it there.


Comment by Syko:
The place is rumored to be seriously haunted, rumors of a doctor that went mental and killed people and then a psycho woman killed a doc and then hanged herself in the elevator shaft; these are some of the rumors of it.
I have never found any real truth behind it but I have been inside the building numerous times and saw some pretty creepy stuff. I would only list what happened there in private so locate ''syko'' on facebook to hear the stories.
I have been doing research on that place for the last 7 years and my small paranormal investigation team knows a lot about it and have spoken with people that used to live there when it was an apartment complex and people that have been inside it when it was a hospital.

So yeah I am interested in helping to get us the rights to do an overnight lockdown paranormal investigation but I need a new more dedicated team so find me on facebook by looking for ''syko''.



Comment by anonymous:
I live near Coos Bay. Every time I pass that hospital I swear it's haunted. My dad was supposed to be born there but my grandmother was rejected because they thought she might have the flu. It is a seriously creepy building. I'm glad to know that I'm not insane it's actually haunted.


Comment by Kate:
Wow. I'm trying to convince my friend to visit the place with me. She's scared to do so. I really want to go. I bet the hospital is haunted. Ooo I want to go even more now!!.


Comment by Craig:
Who wants to do a investigation here with me, and who else heard screaming in the building randomly.


Comment by Guy:
Picture is from a stairwell going from the back door to the alley into the second floor. It was originally painted by a student of Ken Keyes.
