The Sainte-Clotilde-de-Horton asylum — considered to be one of the most famous haunted buildings in the province — is now up for sale.

The old asylum, located near Victoriaville, Que. can now be purchased for a little more than $2.8 million.

The institution, which was built in 1939, was ravaged by fire in 1959 and again in 1988. At least eight people lost their lives.
