Many years ago, there were a large number of the Kentucky residents that became deathly sick with the very contagious disease that is known as tuberculosis. To better be able to administer care to these extremely ill Kentuckians, the Waverly Hills Sanitorium was built. Hundreds of people would end up residing, and ultimately dying within the walls of the sanitorium. The disease was so rampant back in the early 1900’s, that many times, this horrible disease killed entire families, and there were even a few towns that were wiped out entirely because of the death grip that tuberculosis seemed to have on so many people. When individuals of the area would fall ill to the disease, they would then desperately seek the help and medical attention that was provided by the doctors and nurses of the Waverly House.
There was such a tremendous amount of death and suffering that was suffered at the Waverley House, and this could very well be the reason why so many ghosts are said to inhabit the hospital, still to this day. There were so many patients that would die from their bodies being totally ravaged by the disease that a chute was built at the Waverly home. With many of the patients still being alive, this chute, which became known as the death tunnel, would secretly be used to transport the bodies of the individuals who had died. They would then end up at the bottom of the hill where the hospital stands. The doctors were so concerned with their mental condition that they did not want them to know just how many patients were dying from this dreadful disease.
