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

About this episode


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!
