The Sheboygan County Asylum, which was officially known as the Sheboygan County Comprehensive Health Care Center until its closing in 2002, is a favorite destination among ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts. The 275,000-square-foot compound in rural Sheboygan Falls has 17 wings, a surgical center, nurse and living quarters, a morgue, and a series of tunnels that run underneath the facility.
The Old Glenbeulah School opened in 1916, and closed in 1995. Vacant for 27 years, the building is considered by many to be one of the most haunted places in the state of Wisconsin.
