The story on the boys’ home is up for sale and there maybe a family buying it to convert it to a private home.

do they ever allow people to go thru the school in groups?

No, group tours are not allowed. The home shut down in 1978 and was bought in 2000. It has been redone and it is not a private home. Creepy if you ask me. However they do allow weddings there and it has the most beauitful gardens I have ever seen in Oklahoma. Its said that you can hear boys screaming in there and that on of the nurse maids hanged herself in the bell tower. At night between 2am and 4am you can heard gasps coming from the tower. The really scary place in Guthrie is the old hospital. Just being near it freaks me out.

I have been to both, the house once was really scary before they renovated it. There are old graves sites on the back side of the property. I called and did some research on the place and it used to be owed by the Masons. It was called Masonic Boys Home back then. It was pretty scary when we used to go in it. There were old papers liek birth certificates layiung around along with trash scattered. There are rumors of spirits being in there. One time we enterted a window on the bottom floor backside of the building and a black shadow kept lurking aroudn us the whoel time, it was a really eerie feeling!!! The hospital is really scary also. You can see things moving in the windows when you drive up to it!!

Come on, I am 64 years old and grew up in Guthrie. I have heard so many stories about this and the Masonic Childrens Home. I lived across the street from Masonic Childrens Home and my own step-son still thinks they murded children there. Not so. The children were well taken care of. Had horses, cows, play ground with even a farris wheel. Bowling ally gardens etc. The only haunted places I know of is a house in the 300 block of E Noble. One of the buildings down town also. Sorry, the rest make a good story.

Ok people, this is an up date on the old hospital in Guthrie. I went there a while back with a friend of mine and yes, it is a truely sadistic place indeed. HOWEVER, the Logan County Sherriff’s Dept. watches this place RELIGIOUSLY!!! They will prosecute to the fullist! That’s b/c OKGHS has thousands of $$$ of equip. (and alarms) watching the place for “activity”. But if u can get past the dozens of pigs and avoid the cameras, well… lets just hope u don’t run into what we say…

I went into the boys home back in 2001. At that time there were people living in a tralior on the black top in the back yard. Back in 1998 I use to enter through the back door there. But the last time I went I had to climb in through a window. They’ve also put a tall iron fence around it that made it almost impossible to get in. Believe I spent 6 hours in that building with candels a flashlight and a blanket. I don’t care what anyone says, that place made me a believer in ghosts.

I have had so many contacts with ghosts in that building that I think I brought some home with me. I too collected papers and little trinkets from the home. Some of the bedrooms inside had closets in them that were only 3ft. tall and 6ft long. The closets had sinks in them and locks on the doors. Now tell me why would anyone need a closet with a sink and for gods sake a lock on the door?!!! These kids were beaten by the lady that ran the place. I still believe that the 5 boys that died r still there.

I was told by the Police in Guthrie that the Boys Home is NOT haunted, and they added that the Stone Lion Inn IS haunted. There have been many people who have broken into the old building, some of which were seriously injured, due to it’s state of disrepair. The place WAS rather creepy looking, like something from a hollywood film. Standing outside on a crisp October evening in 1999 the building made the Bates Mansion look like a warm and welcoming place. But, I believe any “ghosts” were in the eye of the beholder.
