|Kendallville Public Library
Lock Down Event
Once again NEIPIS was asked to conduct a hunt of the Library. We
thank the KPL staff for this wonderful opportunity.
We started the evening with a Q&A session, and listened to audio
and viewed footage of previous events.
The adult public attendees participated in EVP sessions, monitored
the IR/UV Cameras, experienced K2 hits, and had several of their
own personal experiences.
After the public attendees departed for the evening, the NEIPIS team
had time to settle in and focus on a couple more hours of
Is the KPL haunted? It would take several hours of further
investigating to come to that conclusion.
NEIPIS feels that it would be time well invested.

This small facility over filled rapidly with patients. Some tuberculosis patients were
transferred to Waverly Sanatorium in Kentucky, most who went there never returned.
When the depression hit this area, Lakeside Hospital was doomed to close. Kendallville
citizens donated food, cleaning supplies, and helped out at the hospital with no
compensation. E.E. McCray stepped in and donated a large sum of money to keep the
hospital operating. This generosity led to the future change in the hospitals name.
On October 28th 1961, an expansion program began. The expansion transformed the once
tiny hospital into a 72 bed facility, 11 beds were set aside for psychiatric care unit.
The McCray Hospital facility closed in 2004.
The Kendallville City Council agreed for the hospital site to be used for construction of the
new library, under the terms that the entire hospital had to be demolished. Ground breaking
for the library was Nov 20th, 2005.
