Steve Blanchard / Barry Merwin

For nearly 70 years, Cresson Sanatorium served Pennsylvania as a tuberculosis hospital, a ward for the developmentally disabled and as a prison for a wide variety of criminals. Today the 400-plus acres upon which the former institution rests is a hot spot for paranormal investigators, including Barry Merwin, of Unfortunate Travels. In this episode Barry shares his experiences while investigating the massive complex over two nights. For him there’s no doubt that the building still harbors memories of its past.
