See Inside The Pump House at Waverly Hills Where You can Stay The Night
Waverly Hills Sanatorium is located just outside of Louisville. Waverly Hills is known for being haunted, and being a "hot bed" for paranormal activity. Part of the reason for this reputation has to do with Waverly's history. The numbers vary, but it's said that thousands died at Waverly Hills Sanatorium as it was originally a tuberculosis hospital. The Waverly Hills Historical Society works hard to help preserve the historic landmark, and by utilizing it's creepy history they're able to raise funds for their nonprofit which helps with the preservation of the building.
If you're interested in touring Waverly Hills they have a few different tour options, but if you're really into paranormal investigating, you can actually book an overnight investigation that includes a place to crash when you get too tired of ghost hunting. The place to crash is a remodeled pump house, it originally was used for the water supply at Waverly. The original pumps are still inside the pump house, and the inside has been turned into a quite cozy place to lay your head after a night of paranormal investigating. Oh, and the pump house is located just at the bottom of the infamous body chute, which adds a little extra spooky to the mix. Check out photos of the pump house below.
