Waverly Hills Sanatorium

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium was built in 1910 for treating people with tuberculosis which was very rampant during that era. It was closed in 1961 because of the discovery of antibiotics which could cure tuberculosis and. During it’s use, there were around 63,000 patients who died because of the disease or through the unusual treatment methods being used in the hospital.
Waverly Hills Sanatorium has a tunnel called the the “body chute”. This tunnel was used for the movement of materials used in building the hospital. The tunnel was eventually used as an alternative route for the dead bodies of patients from the hospital down to the tunnel’s exit at the bottom of the hill.
This is why it was called “the body chute”. Many stories about Waverly Hills involve the body chute and the ghosts that haunt the tunnel, as well as about the doctors who opened up the bodies of dead patients and drained them.
Other Waverly Hills stories involve ghosts of nurses who were working at the hospital. And the most famous of these is about room 502. People claimed to have seen the ghost of a nurse in her uniform in this room, some saying that the ghost demands them to get out of room. It is said that a nurse was found hanged in the room.
There is yet another story of a nurse who committed suicide by jumping from the top of the building after working in room 502. No one knows why she killed herself.
There are many stories about Waverly Hill that have to do with shadows, doors closing on their own and ghostly spirits that roam the fourth floor of the hospital. This is thought to be the most haunted places in the hospital. There are more stories about the third floor of the building involving a little girl with a face that has no eyes. Add to this stories about a young boy who is said to be playing with a bouncing ball.
There are many other Waverly Hill stories about ghosts and other strange, and this is why it is one of the most famous haunted locations in the United Sates. Many people visit the area to see if these stories are true.
