Dark story in the Waverly Hills Sanatorium
Back in the early 1900s, the Waverly Hills Sanatorium was serving as a hospital center to treat patients with tuberculosis. However, at that time there wasn’t enough knowledge on how to treat it so thousands of patients passed away as a result.
After the epidemic came to an end, the hospital closed in 1961 and a year after, it became a geriatric medical facility. During this time they used to treat elderly patients but once again, due to a lack of trained staff and overflowing with patients, the state of Kentucky had to close it in 1982.
The walls of this hospital kept the suffering of thousands of people for many years, eventually turning into the jail of many ghosts.
