I've lived in the Liberty MO area all my life and have always wondered about the old Odd Fellows Home. I've read that it's an old insane asylum, but can't find any information on it. It's an extremely creepy looking building and I've always known it was said to be haunted, but I'd like to learn more about it.
Also there's some Old Mill in Liberty MO that's said to be haunted as well and I would like to know if anybody knows anything about it. Like it's whereabouts.... I'm thinking it's next to my work, but I'm not for sure. I'd just like an opportunity to explore some places around here, with two small children it's difficult for me to travel long distances.

The following site claims the building was used for orphans and elderly.

Odd Fellows Home, 1900-1908, Liberty, Clay County

An impressive, significant complex of four buildings, the Odd Fellows Home sits on 36 acres. Three of the red-brick buildings exhibit the Jacobean-Revival style with rich stone door and window surrounds and gabled dormers. Nationally recognized architect, William Ittner, designed one of these structures, the Administration Building. Constructed for one of America’s largest fraternal orders, the Odd Fellows Home educated orphans and gave care for elderly members of the IOOF. The buildings are in a state of advanced deterioration; broken windows, doors and damaged roofs create a dangerous environment.

Also, the mill is off of 291 hwy. I've been there and did not have much to report but many do.

Wowzers... I don't think that place looks creepy at all. I think it's breathtaking.
Love life.
