I have a few stories about ghostly hauntings in Hermiston. My first story is of the old hospital near Kiddy Corner (La Cabana. ) I have been told that it has been demolished and used to expand the grade school adjacent to it for a parking lot. One night I was walking by on my way home. The night was nice, a tiny bit of breeze but otherwise nice. As I approached the side of the street that it sat on, I heard a woman's voice in a windy type of sound saying ''HEELLLLPPP. '' The only thing I could think of doing was crossing the street and continuing on my way. After getting home I retold the story to some of my friends. They told me all sorts of stories about the hauntings of the old hospital. Some they had experienced themselves, and some of people they knew who had experienced things. There were some pretty gruesome stories floating about that old hospital.
There is one story involving my brother-in-law. This guy is not afraid of anything, and I mean anything. For instance, one time he was seen by others to have jumped on top of a cop car and start to try to vandalize it knowing the cop was in the building sitting next to the car. However, something inside that hospital building scared him so bad. He jumped out of one of the closed windows with no regard or thrown. He said he went in there as a prank/joke. Someone had pressured him to go in. You know how kids are and haunted areas, and someone takes the bait. That was him. He was in for a few minutes and yelled out to his friends that they were scared of nothing. Suddenly he went quiet. Next thing he remembered is people looking down at him on the ground asking what happened and if everything was alright. He claims he does not remember anything, or could it be that he does not want to remember. I will never know.
There are other stories about the old hospital and a ghost dog. This dog was apparently kept in the basement during the day chained up and used at night by the security guards. (CAUTION: This story is as scary as that of a horror story!) A group of visitors after the hospital shut down had visited the hospital late at night. They claim they were looking for paperwork that showed malpractices going on when the hospital was in operation. Supposedly as the story goes, there had been rumors about experiments that happened in the lower levels of the hospital.
When they entered the office that the door had been attempted to be sealed, they noticed files after files. The group also noticed burnt candles in a circle in the center of the room. One of the guys felt that it was an omen to leave, but the rest of the group insisted that he was being paranoid. They were looking through the files and came across what they were looking for. Suddenly they heard a noise outside the room. They went to investigate it and saw a gurney moving down the hallway towards their location unassisted. They blockaded themselves into the room hoping the gurney would stop. Just as the gurney stopped, papers started flying around the room and them. They immediately exited the room to find the gurney right in front of the door. Suddenly a wheel chair started down the hallway towards them. The group then ran away from the moving hospital items towards these stairs that lead to the basement.
They were not aware they were being lead to the basement. They only wanted to get away. They found a small corner to hide in hoping they could wait till morning to get out. As they were waiting, they started looking around their surroundings. They found a thick chain that was chained to one of the pipes. As they continued, they found several items indicating that a dog was kept there. As they were looking at the different items that appeared to be many years old they heard a growl coming from a dark part of the corner. Their lights could not seem to penetrate the corner when they put their lights towards the growl. Suddenly the chain moved. The group looked toward the corner and saw red glowing eyes looking back at them. As soon as the eyes were spotted, loud barking and growling seemed to surround them, like it was coming from all corners of the room. The group does not remember how they got out of the hospital, and that is the last thing they remember seeing.
