Many paranormal teams have come to the Waverly Hills Sanitarium to conduct investigations. Our researchers uncovered many newspaper articles and donated them to the owners of the site.
Waverly Hills was one of the most state of the art hospitals of the time for the Kentucky area. It is mainly known for being a treatment facility for patients with Tuberculosis. The land was originally owned by Major Thomas H Hays. It opened in 1910 as a Sanitarium for TB patients and closed in 1962 (wikipedia). In 1983 the site was purchased to make a prison but was never followed through on. The current owners are trying to restore the hospital to it’s original splendor and allows paranormal groups to investigate to help with the restoration.
While traveling to Louisville, KY the research team reviews newspaper articles found about the site to validate some of the “legends” heard about the site. One of the legends that a staff member became pregnant by another staff members and hung herself on the top floor (room 502).
During the tour with the staff, we were all on the top floor where someone allegedly hung themselves. While standing there, Brenda heard, “Help me.” No recorders were started at that time.
Our team first went to the body shoot area. We used a night vision camera while in the area. We were able to capture and Orb that was following John back and forth down the hall. You could not see it with the naked eye by with the camera only. Bert did a period resonance session.
Down the opposite hall (90 degrees from the body shoot) we used a FLIR camera and believed we caught a shadow figure on the FLIR.
No EVP’s were captured in the body shoot area.
Our team then went to the second floor and we sat in the recreation area. The frogs were singing loudly and it was hard to hear if any EVP’s were captured. Brenda, John and T3 were sitting in the area while others were going through the area investigating the other rooms. No activity was reported on this level.
Team 1 Location 1- Death Tunnel
Start Time 10:04pm End Time 11:00pm
Activity at Body Chute “Death Tunnel”
We decided to divide the team into 3 parts Bert and Brenda stayed near the entrance and watched the camera. John positioned himself at the top of the steps of the tunnel. While Lesley and her guests walked down the steps 500 ft and investigated the bottom. Bert and Brenda noticed on the Sony Night Shot there was a shadow person half way between Bert/Brenda and John. As John walked closer to Bert/Brenda it appeared the shadow figure moved away from John towards Bert and Brenda. When John came close to touching the shadow person Bert/Brenda said the shadow person shot across the ceiling and went toward the tunnel. During the time of contact with the spirit John felt a cold spot go thru him. Bert/Brenda/John continued to ask questions watching their mag lights respond to questions in direct time. Also John’s motion detectors were going off quite frequently as well as John’s K-II meter lighting up as questions were asked. The team attempted to take pictures with the Flir I7 Thermal Camera but the camera wouldn’t take a picture at the time. Also, Brenda attempted to do a ghost box session but no reception could be made do to the heavy concrete and steel construction.
Lesley believed she heard a voice in her ear…While doing period residence Bert heard a sniff in his ear…. “Note” There is NO Power in the area the team was investigating at the time.So the K-II meter should not have been responding while in the Death Tunnel……
