The Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky
The original Waverly Hills Sanatorium was a two-story wooden structure which was opened in 1910.
The larger brick and concrete structure you see today was built in 1926. The hospital has always been dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century.
Reports estimate that as many as 63,000 people have died in this sanatorium. Furthermore, there have been many reports or patients being horribly mistreated. Oh, it gets worse… there were (again reportedly) highly questionable experiments and procedures conducted.
If these occurrences don’t set the stage for a haunted location, nothing does!
Get this: Ghost and paranormal experts and investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.
Screams, isolated cold spots (indicating a paranormal being…. Holy Cats, I’m sleeping with the lights on tonight…), voices of unknown origin, shadows!?!? I could not be more creeped out right now.

This place is scary as hell. I went because I read about it here and I gotta tell you, it’s as scary as you’d think it’d be.
I loved it!

this is like a bloody hell place.
The Waverly Hills Sanitorium was a very large hospital that was built back in 1910, and it housed thousands of very sick patients that were suffering from having the disease of tuberculosis. There were literally hundreds of sick patients who resided here, and most of who eventually succumbed to the disease and died in the Waverly Hills hospital. In some cases, there would be patients of literally entire families, and even entire towns that would end up dead from having this tragic disease.
