According to paranormal website Strange USA, there is one well-known haunted hospital in Nashville, Tenn., called the Old Donelson Hospital. One of the oldest hospitals in Nashville, the hospital is closed as of 2014, though visitors still report many seemingly paranormal occurrences there.

Since being shut down, the Old Donelson Hospital serves as storage space for other hospitals and medical facilities. Employees entering the building to retrieve supplies report many mysterious sounds once the doors are closed, including footsteps, moaning, screaming and clanging on the walls, both during the day and at night. Visitors who venture toward the hospital's old psychiatric ward also report a feeling of mysterious energy and extreme chills, even in the dead of summer and in a building with no air conditioning.
