The Jemison Center, also sometimes called the Old Bryce Hospital, was a mental health facility in the early 20th century. Accounts of the building while it was still in operation say that conditions in Jemison were deplorable, with patients being mistreated by an overworked and understaffed faculty. The center eventually closed down and has been left abandoned, but that hasn't stopped thrill seekers from breaking in and trespassing on the old grounds. Visitors say they have heard disembodied voices, footsteps, and slamming doors. Others claim to have had more violent experiences in which their hair was pulled or they felt as though they were being kicked. Now in serious disrepair, the Jemison Center may be unsafe to visit, and is reportedly patrolled by police who will arrest those caught trying to sneak in.

  • As I Was Carried Away......

    It was a calm, cool day in March when my boyfriend, at the time, had an old friend he'd not seen in years to come by and visit. It was my first time ever meeting this guy, though I had heard a lot about him from Keith, whom which he shared some history with from being friends. There was a woman, which was a part of his life prior to this day, who had apparently played quite the significant role as his beloved other half. Little did I know, she would soon also play a part in mine as well..... Later, as we were lost in conversation, Keith's friend eventually informed us of his other half's untimely demise, then asked if we would like to ride with him to pick up a few things from the old house. Mind you, at this point, being as well aware that I was to this woman committing suicide, I was also utterly and totally unaware as to HOW she brought upon herself such a sudden and tragic death. We arrived in Coldwater just a few minutes before dark-thirty that night as we pulled into their garage. Their back door was all the way from where the carport was, back around to the further end of the house. Entering right into a hallway, you could either go right into what appeared to be a laundry room or back left into the kitchen. There inside the kitchen was an island where we stood talking for a few mins, just before going into a dining room which was adjacent of us. To the left, there was a den like addition to the house, straight across the dining room was a bedroom and to the right of that was a huge living room filled with beautiful interior decor, etc. Now that you have a general idea of the layout to the house, let's make our way down the hallway from there. Right at just the end of that was her room, where she had what every female wants and that's her own bathroom, closet and everything wonderful. Though I didn't realize just how much things weren't so wonderful. My fiancé's friend (in his past life) proceeded to lead us down the hall and to her room. As they were going into the bathroom, I was about to step into her room from the hall when suddenly I heard a voice, it was a woman saying "it's okay"; I stepped right back out and as I did there was an enormous weight that came over me, followed by a chilling cold sweat. First, the tingling numbness was at my feet, then quickly climbed my legs, up in the pit of my stomach and to the rest of my body. As I felt it moving faster, it got much worse, even more so that when my chest began to tighten I started to lose all feeling in my face; leaving me very weak and faint from closely losing consciousness caused by a severe panic attack from out of nowhere!!! Being vastly quick, to rush to my aide and be by my side, smooth and swiftly grabbing me up, cradled me and carried me in his arms on into the dining room and sat me down in a chair. I almost became consumed entirely by what I truly believe was a viciously evil paranormal act. I was fighting to hear her attempting to tell the truth on what really happened but she already faded away. Amongst the chaos and still in shock from what had just occurred, I could feel myself slowly coming back to reality, my feeling was back within my senses and finally, I was able to catch my breath. Are you prepared for what's next? The very last thing was something that I never seen coming!!! Suddenly, all the way around my neck there was this burning sensation that hurt and throbbed along in rhythm with my heartbeat. Remember earlier, I said that she had committed suicide; well, it seems as if she hung herself with a ratchet strap..... I think maybe, that just maybe, she might've been a victim of some type of abuse and was strangled by hung to make it look like she hung herself.

  • Creeped out!!

    Someone else rated this as well and we went on today as well.. we don’t know the other poster and did not see anyone else when we were there. But my friends and i didn’t even leave our vehicles. My best friend got chill bumps, my phone died and it was on 80-96% when we arrived. Also, i come home after dropping them off and sat on my living room couch for awhile and 30 minutes later a picture that was behind me flew off of the wall and shattered. The nail is still in the wall and everything. My mom said the picture nearly hit me and luckily i moved on time. I’m not sure if something possibly followed me home but I’m definitely got going back.
