A Look Inside “The Most Terrifying Building in America,” Waverly Hills Sanitorium

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ysn57-12cc00f

Called “one of the most haunted places in the United States” and “the most terrifying building in America,” Louisville’s Waverly Hills Sanitorium is legendary in paranormal circles. It’s been featured in a number of shows, from A&E’s “Ghost Hunters” to the Travel Channel’s “Kindred Spirits.”

But how did this sprawling, gothic-style building come to be the site of so many deaths? What was the original purpose of that infamous dark tunnel known as “the body chute”? And what supernatural stories are widely circulated related to encounters with the child ghost ‘Timmy’ and the nurse who met tragedy in room 502? 

History meets suspense in this fun Spooktober episode that is sure to send chills up your spine!

Ashley is an award-winning Independent Filmmaker from Northern Kentucky. Her first film, “No Lost Cause” is currently internationally distributed and was recently featured on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network). Her memoir recalling her experience creating a film on a micro budget, “The Why Not Philosophy or How We Learned to Let Go, Trust God and Defeat the Raptors,” was released February 2015 and is available on Amazon.com. Her second feature film, “The Hepburn Girls” was released on Amazon.com and Vimeo.com in the summer of 2016. Ashley is also a long-time lover of all things theatre and in the spring of 2014, she helped found and became the Vice-President of the theatre company, “The Theatre Downstream.” Their first large scale summer musical, “Beauty and the Beast” was awarded Best Musical (Local), Best Actor in a Musical (Local), Best Actress in a Musical (Local), and Best Set Design by the BroadwayWorld Louisville awards in 2016, and their 2017 production of "Annie" sold over 2,100 tickets, a company record-breaking number! No matter what the project, Ashley is happiest when she is able to bring talented people and their art together for the consumption and appreciation of the public. While her taste remains vintage, she is grateful for the technology of the modern world and the opportunity to share her thoughts, aspirations, and misadventures. Her lofty dreams are to create things that people remember and to one day own an alpaca. Above all, she loves God, her family, her friends, her cats, and brownies.
