Rolling Hills began as a poorhouse in 1826. Those eligible for admittance included habitual drunkards, lunatics, those with no means, the disabled, or vagrants.
In 1828, a stone building was added to the Poorhouse dedicated to only the lunatics and dangerous paupers, who needed separation from those of a less violent nature. All residents were considered inmates, and the able-bodied were forced to work the farms surrounding the building.
During its history, Rolling Hills would serve as shelter, asylum for the insane, a nursing home, and in 1992 would become a very creepy shopping mall.
It’s believed that over 1,000 people died inside and around Rolling Hills since its opening over 180 years ago.
"The man known as Jack paces a 2nd floor solarium. Seen as a dark force that blocks light from windows and doors. If Jack is comfortable with you being there, he may open a door and invite you in. Some guests have asked for this, and the door opens on command.
You’ll feel energy emitting from the Rolling Hills’ morgue when entering this unique room. An Italian speaking man has been heard. A suit hanging in the room has gone from garment to paranormal tool. Like a cloth pendulum, the energies of this space will communicate with the living by swinging back and forth.
The Administration room is a room of real dread. The negative energy hangs thick in the air as you walk through this space. It affects many, including grown man who’ve been brought to tears just by stepping inside.
Other experiences include the capturing of true EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), unidentifiable shadow people walking the halls, disembodied voices talking around guests, and objects moving about. A dark cloud surrounds Rolling Hills.
Legends of dark practices are repeated throughout the generations, including Satanists and cults enjoying the hidden and remote negative energy. It was believed that some nurses and doctors of the Poorhouse were into such traditions which you consider to be violent and evil."
