Fairfield County Infirmary

Originally opened in 1828, the Fairfield County Infirmary was a home for the poor and downtrodden. Taken over by county offices in the mid-1980s and left abandoned in 2013. It saw activity through Habitat for Humanity from 2017-2019 and is now used for paranormal exploration. Public and private tours. Also on the property are the authentic "Twisty" busses from "American Horror Story: Freak Show."

Unlike most terror haunts of the undead, this one is conveniently next to a highway and quick escape options.
