Waverly Hills Sanatorium
Waverly Hills Sanatorium is in the running for the top 10 best-haunted destinations in America. Located in Louisville, Kentucky Waverly is infamous around our area for being extremely haunted.
Part of the reason for this reputation has to do with Waverly's history. The numbers vary, but it's said that thousands died at Waverly Hills Sanatorium as it was originally a tuberculosis hospital. After the tuberculosis epidemic was over, it was turned into a geriatric medical facility. In 1981 Waverly Hills closed its doors. Now the Waverly Hills Historical Society works hard to help preserve the historic landmark, and by utilizing its creepy history they're able to raise funds for their nonprofit which helps with the preservation of the building.
