Hill View Manor

New Castle, PA

The Lawrence County Home for the Aged- also known as the poor house or poor farm - housed the county’s mentally ill, severely destitute, and elderly residents that didn’t have any known family.

The facility opened it’s doors on Tuesday, October 19, 1926.

The home continued to operate for many years, and in the latter half of the 1960’s was remodeled and slowly changed into a skilled nursing center. By 1970, the home was facing severe overcrowding issues.


In December of 1974 the county decided to add a new section, which is now known as the North Wing. It was renamed as Hill View Manor on March 22, 1977.


Hill View Manor closed it’s doors in 2004 due to financial constraints. Although it seems to sit quietly at the top of the grassy hill above Route 65, evidence of its history remains active.

Hill View Manor is one of the most well known locations in Pennsylvania.  It has been featured on TV shows Ghosts Hunters on SyFy, Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel, Ghost Asylum on Destination America, Ghost Lab on Discovery Channel - and more!

Pretty much every type of ghost phenom you can think of occurs at Hill View. Full bodied apparitions, phantom voices, shadow people, EVPs, grabbing, unexplained noises - the list goes on!
