The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is a former sanatorium located in southwestern Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky.See Waverly Hills Sanatorium and all Louisville has to offer by arranging your trip with our Louisville holiday tool.
It opened in 1910 as a two-story hospital to accommodate 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. In the early 1900s, Jefferson County was ravaged by an outbreak of tuberculosis – known as the "White Plague" – which prompted the construction of a new hospital. The hospital closed in 1961, due to the antibiotic drug streptomycin that lowered the need for such a hospital. Plans have been developed to convert the sanatorium into a hotel and conference center.

Awesome tour! Awesome guide! Awesome experience! Will return for all other options. Only have done the 2 hour paranormal tour so far but everyone and everything is great! No complaints. Nothing to recommend. Just keep on keeping on Waverly staff and residents!!!
Awesome overnight investigation. This place is so creepy and has a very amazing vibe to it. It is well worth the overnight tour if you have time. The staff was super helpful and friendly. It was one of the creepiest places I have ever been to. We experienced so much paranormal creepiness. If you are a non believer or a believer this place will change your view regardless. Great job!
