Welcome believers and skeptics alike, Waverly Hills awaits your admittance

The Gothic architectural rooftop gargoyles who have kept steadfast centennial over the grounds at Waverly Hills for over 100 years, wait for your arrival. Explore one of the country's most haunted locations in the heart of the Bluegrass State. Strange Escapes whisks away its guests to a different era in time to interact with those who never left it. Built in 1910 Waverly was only supposed to shelter a maximum of 50 patients suffering from what was at the time, incurable tuberculosis.

 

Ultimately Waverly ended up housing nearly 400 infected patients after necessary expansions. The Tuberculosis hospital closed in 1961 and was refashioned into a nursing home in the early 80s before closing permanently as a healthcare facility. The property has been owned by Charles and Tina Mattingly since 2001 and has different events throughout the year.

The halls of Waverly Sanitorium now vastly remain empty in place of what many years ago was quite a bustling environment. Aside of course from the thousands of yearly visitors that brave the grounds and property, and of course, those that never did leave after their final discharge.
