The original Waverly Hills Sanatorium, a two-story wooden structure, was opened in 1910, but the larger brick and concrete structure as it stand today was completed in 1926. The hospital was dedicated to the treatment of tuberculosis patients, a disease that was fairly common in the early 20th Century. It is estimated that as many as 63,000 people died at the sanatorium and there were many reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments
One of the most haunted places in the world is Waverly Hills Sanatorium. It is said that people that visited the old uninhabited hospital have heard doors slamming, a child crying and seen a woman with bleeding wrists. They have also seen a hearse appear in the back of the hospital dropping off coffins. Many have seen lights in the windows even when the power was turned off.
