Former Robert Koch Hospital Site

Back behind those bushes and trees, and up over a hill, are the graves of hundreds, perhaps thousands of former residents of the Robert Koch Hospital. It is now private property, and no trespassing is allowed, but I hope one day those people can be properly remembered.

    My South County-native partner remembers this hospital and stories of a haunted road, too.

Wish I had taken some of those files now they were creepy with pictures of patients etc. never knew I was walking on mass graves ??

      Wow, that does sound like quite the experience! I bet someone out there has photographs of the buildings before they were demolished.
