In this chilling episode, we embark on a journey to the infamous Waverly Hills Sanatorium, a place steeped in darkness and tragedy. Once a tuberculosis hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, Waverly Hills is now shrouded in ghostly tales and paranormal activity. As we delve into its eerie history, we uncover stories of suffering patients, experimental treatments, and the lingering spirits said to roam its halls. Join us as we navigate the shadowy corridors of Waverly Hills, exploring the haunted past that continues to haunt its present.
