WAVERLY HILLS SANATORIUM
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of the Waverly Hills sanatorium.
The Waverly Hills
Sanatorium located in Louisville, Kentucky (USA) started out as a
treatment centre for tuberculosis patients in the year 1910 and was
eventually expanded from it's wooden beginnings into the brick and
concrete building (currently derelict) that stands today.
An approximate sixty
three thousand deaths have occurred in it since it's founding of
which quite a number of these deaths were blamed on the alleged
abuse and reported unorthodox experimentation upon the ill.
Kentucky saw an
alarming rise of tuberculosis in the beginning of the nineteenth
century and was possibly the worst struck state in the whole of the
United States. Some claim that at the worst point of the epidemic
the death rate at the Sanatorium was one per hour. Whole families
were occasionally admitted to the Sanatorium out of which some were
completely wiped out.
The Waverly Hills Sanatorium was, during the
epidemic, a hospice at best though there were patients who were
eventually cured and discharged.
People venturing into
the premises have reported hearing screaming within, echoes,
mysterious cold spots, hot spots, phantom smells (mostly pertaining
to food near the cafeteria and kitchen) and seeing fleeting
One of the common sightings is of a little girl who allegedly plays
a game of 'Hide and Go Seek' with people wandering into the now
abandoned Sanatorium. Another apparition of a little boy playing a
game with a ball of old fashioned make had also been reported. The
specter of an elderly lady with chains attached to her limbs has
reportedly been seen running with her wrists bleeding in front of
the building. She has been heard to have called "Help me! Somebody
save me!" The phantom of a man in a white coat has been sighted near
the cafeteria and kitchens. Room 502 has seen people jump to their
deaths from its windows and is the room a nurse apparently hanged
herself according to legend. Voices are still reported to be heard
here. Mysterious slamming doors and strange moving shadows have been
reported on the fourth floor of the Sanatorium.
Visions of a hearse ferrying coffins have
also been sighted. Apparently lights in the abandoned buildings go
on and off even though there is no power. The Waverly Sanatorium is
now old and falling apart and is often used by teenagers and stoners
looking to get high so the drug influenced hallucinations and as
such this is one explanation for some of the bizarre sightings.
Though, with such a bloody history as this you be the judge.
