The Beechworth Lunatic Asylum

The dark and twisted stories behind this abandoned lunatic asylum will haunt you.  It’s the second oldest asylum dating back to 1867 which was later named Mayday Hills.

All that was required for you to end up locked up here was a request from a disgruntled relative and a signature from a doctor who was not even required to examine you in person, and a lot of patients ended up leaving in body bags.

One of the many ghosts who roam the grounds of the old asylum is Matron Sharp, whose apparition has been seen in various parts of the hospital.

Matron Sharpe, has been seen in the dormitory area of Latrobe University. Witnesses have seen her in computer rooms, down the granite staircase and in one of the classrooms.  Read more here
