Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Kentucky
Some believe this Sanatorium to rank amongst the most haunted places on Earth and, whether you agree or not, there’s no doubt that time spent here can be an unnerving experience. First built in 1910 to house severely-ill tuberculosis patients from all over Kentucky, Waverly Hills closed its doors in the 1960s.
Various plans have been drawn up to redevelop the building over the years, with a prison and apartments both having been mooted, but such is the former hospital’s reputation, none have come to fruition and this remains an attraction for those with an interest in the macabre.
Those seeking supernatural activities find themselves drawn here and ghost tours are sometimes carried out, whilst overnight stays are possible from time to time for the most courageous.
