Aura Haunted House is located in the old Bartonville State Hospital, a psychiatric hospital operated by the State of Illinois from 1902 to 1973. Under the direction of Dr. George Zeller as a “cottage system plan” of 63 buildings.

The hospital was added to the state hospital campus in 1949, although tuberculosis deaths on the grounds dated back to the earliest days of the asylum. By 1906, it was the leading cause of death at the Peoria State Hospital. The high number of deaths convinced Dr. Zeller to try and control the spread of the illness by segregating the sick. Some visitors say, you can still feel the AURA of those patients still within the Pollak Hospital Building to this day.
