5. Waverly Hills Sanatorium


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 always 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 as the sanatorium. Those deaths coupled with the reports of severe mistreatment of patients and highly questionable experiments and procedures are ingredients for a haunted location.

Ghost investigators who have ventured into Waverly have reported a host of strange paranormal phenomena, including voices of unknown origin, isolated cold spots and unexplained shadows. Screams have been heard echoing in its now abandoned hallways, and fleeting apparitions have been encountered.

  1. Every time I hear a story about this place, it makes me want to go there...

    But at the same time, I don't want to mess with the place for fear of getting my spine ripped out by a savage undead creature.

  2. I think this place was on one of the episodes of that show they used to have in MTV where they sent a group of people to places like this and they had to complete challenges over the course of like 3 days or something and they had those mounted "face" cameras. I loved that show it was awesome.

  5. Ok, I redact what I said about Raynham Hall.
    THIS place definitely looks like a proper haunted house. Very foreboding.
    You should do a vote on the most haunted-looking out of the 10.

    63,000 people? If it is true that the amount of deaths contribute to some sort of 'residual psychic/paranormal energy' then this place is ripe.
