St. Ignatius Hospital located in Colfax, Washington, was built in 1893 by the Sisters of Charity. The building was used as a hospital until 1968, when it became an institution for developmentally disabled adults until it closed in 2003. Preservation efforts are underway to save the building. The Whitman County Historical Society offers historic tours, ghost tours (complete with gear for investigations), scary movie nights and fun interactive clue games. Funds from ticket sales help save the building, which is on the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Most Endangered Watch List.”
