I've always been intrigued with old empty buildings and abandoned homes. So the chance to visit Waverly Hills, which is a closed sanatorium in Louisville was something I just couldn't pass up. In the early 1900's, Jefferson County where it's located, was full of swampland making the area a perfect environment for an outbreak of tuberculosis. The sanatorium was built to accommodate 400 tuberculosis patients and opened in 1910. During the thirty five years of its existence it was reported that 63,000 people died at Waverly Hills. However, the county puts that number at around 10,000. Either way it is an eerie place that sits on a hill over looking the city of Louisville Kentucky. To me it looks a little like a reigning fortress of gloom. But it has been given the reputation of being 'one of the most haunted places in the United States' by those in the paranormal field who have visited there extensively.

Here's a picture of what the porches used to look like:
Next year, my brothers want to do the 'overnight stay.' We'll see...Would you visit Waverly Hills?
