Pictured here is the remains of one of the most mysterious abandoned locations in Monroe County, Tennessee—the Coker Creek Sanitarium. This enormous ruin sits on top of an isolated mountain some 4 miles above civilization in the small mountain community of Coker Creek.

According to what I’ve recently been told, this location was part of an extremely ambitious project that had been planned out by an eccentric local physician named William A. “Doc” Rogers sometime during the 1940s. Doc was well known for his projects, which often resulted in failure. His TB hospital was no exception. A Coker Creek woman recently messaged me and informed me that her parents actually helped Doc to build his hospital. She recalled as a young child walking through this building and seeing numerous hospital beds, wheelchairs, and other medical supplies. She spoke of seeing wheelchair ramps and even a nurse’s station, which lies in ruins a short distance away from the main hospital. There were even plans of building a major road that would’ve connected Coker Creek and Tellico Plains to the hospital. A helipad was also being built further up the mountain. For whatever reason, Doc suddenly abandoned his project and moved back to Tellico Plains during the 1950s, leaving behind the TB hospital that he had built. It burnt down sometime during the 1980s when an arsonist set fire to it.
