W. B. Plunkett Memorial Hospital | Old Adam’s Hospital Information:
Get permission before visiting this location. Security is high and you will be arrested for trespassing.
W.B. Plunkett passed away before the hospital was completely built. The structure was completed by his brother C. T. Plunkett in 1918. It functioned as your everyday hospital until the 1960’s and 1970’s when the hospital administrator at the time was scandalized by his wife-swapping practices and pornography collection. After this controversy, the hospital went into a downward spiral and finally closed in 1973.
In 2003, a number of people were arrested for “legend-tripping”/trespassing at the old, abandoned W. B. Plunkett Memorial Hospital.
The Plunkett Hospital has since been renovated into apartment/condos by Scarafoni Associates. The condos cater to senior citizens.
