Back in 1827, Rolling Hills Asylum was known as the Genesee County Poor House—a government-run self-sustained community for the impoverished and needy. Orphans, widows, the mentally unstable, physically disabled, and criminals all resided within its walls. In 1938 came the addition of The Genesee County Infirmary. There are over 1,700 documented deaths buried in potters field, with hundreds more unaccounted for.

Backed by all this dark, rich history, it may come as no surprise that the spot now known as Rolling Hills Asylum is believed to be one of the most haunted sites in the country. Disembodied voices and ominous sounds, people, are experienced within the walls of this asylum. To let the public investigate these supernatural happenings, the site hosts numerous tours classic horror movie nights, Para-Celebrity ghost hunts, and other special events. Public and private ghost hunts, meanwhile, provide a more interactive way to explore the building—and can last up to an entire night. RHA is open year-round for both public and private tours and ghost hunts.
