Wolfe Manor was built in 1922 as the opulent mansion for the young tycoon Anthony Andriotti. It boasted an ideal location in the small town of Clovis, CA, affectionately known as "The Gateway to the Sierras." Unfortunately, his great estate didn't bring him the happiness he hoped for. The high costs of the building's upkeep eventually forced Andriotti into bankruptcy. This led to his demise as he turned to alcohol and met an early death in 1929 at the age of 36. But this early tragedy was only the beginning; the Manor seemed forever doomed, a black hole of sadness and death.

History

The Wolfe Manor was originally built in 1922 as a private residence. It was easily the most opulent mansion in Clovis at the time, complete with a swimming pool in the basement and a ball room on the fourth floor. The original owner, Anthony Andriotti was bankrupted due to the enormous cost to build it and subsequently lost the house a couple of years later.

The Mansion was purchased in 1935 and became the Hazelwood Sanitarium, treating patients with terminal illnesses (TB, etc). It was sold again in 1942 and became the Clovis Avenue Sanitarium. It was licensed to treat mental illness by the State Board of Mental Hygiene.

Interviews with ex staff and retired Clovis police officers indicate that it seemed there were one or more deaths at the Sanitarium every day. Many ex employees have come forward to confess quitting soon after they were hired due to the excessive amount of deaths and mal- treatment at the Manor. Many have also reported supernatural occurrences as well, contributing to their decision to leave.

Wolfe Manor has become a landmark paranormal location in the Western United States and attracts researchers from all over the nation. People have experienced contact with the unknown by being physically touched, collecting EVP recordings (easily hundreds), photographic and video evidence, witnessing disembodied voices and actually seeing full blown apparitions.
