Standard

Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Louisville, Kentucky


Waverly Hills opened as a standard hospital in 1910 to hold 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. Tuberculosis was reaching epidemic proportions among the public in Kentucky and the small hospital soon had over 140 residences and the numbers continued to grow thus the sanatorium was built. Both facilities remained open until 1961 when it was closed.

The number of people that passed away including two nurse suicides were well in the thousands and it has since become one of the scariest places in the United States with the large number of ghostly sightings, light orbs, strange humanly shadows and creepy sounds.
