There’s a creepy monstrous structure on the hillside of southwestern Louisville, Ky. The massive abandoned complex sits as a reminder of its haunted past. The Waverly Hills Sanatorium was a tuberculosis hospital after a massive outbreak took hold of the area. A lot of those people died, as many as 60,000 are said to have passed within the walls of the sanatorium. Many who have had encounters there say a lot of the dead are not resting in peace. Many of them are still hanging around the grounds of the location.

The Most Haunted Sanatorium In The World
The reason the sickness was so deadly was because of the humid climate. They didn’t have antibiotics back then, so they had to find other ways to help alleviate the pain. The problem was that some of these so-called helpful methods were barbaric. For instance, they would occasionally remove ribs so people could breathe better. The problem with this is that it didn’t help and it only made things worse. Countless people died leaving a stain on the walls of the complex.
Thousands of people miserably passed on to the next existence. Some believe all the pain and suffering brought evil entities to Waverly Hills. Numerous people have reported seeing a dark menacing shadow when wandering the halls. Could real evil lurk within the walls watching those who walk around? Entities feeding off of the negative energy that still resides there?
The real question is this…. WOULD YOU STAY THE NIGHT THERE?
