Ok, let\'s try this post again--- Streptomycin, discovered in 1943 by Selman Waksman (1888-1973). Math: That gives ya 17 years of treatment from 1926 to 1943 when we started makin\' a dent. Now, let\'s PRETEND we had 10 deaths a month from T.B. (remember, it was the White Plague and we don\'t call\'em plagues for shits and giggles, they\'re badass) so, if you took 10 X 12 months X 17 years you get...2,040 deaths, no? Remember, we had over 100 cases in Kentucky in 2001 and 2003 and we have INH, ethambutol, rifampin and pyrazinamide today which are far better for T.B. than Streptomycin was. So..hmmm. Thanks, just couldn\'t resist

I\'m sorry, but I MUST address the idiocy again. Let\'s do some math; BASIC math. Evryone is doing math on here so let\'s do some good ol\' fashioned mathematics: Point 1)- Selman Waksman 1888-1973 isolated Strepyomyces griseus from a soil bacterium in 1943. Later other drugs would prove more effective such as: INH, ethambutol, rifampin and pyrazinamide to treat tuberculosis. Now, to the math. Let\'s say (conservatively) that you had 10 deaths per month from T.B. So, 10 deaths multiplied by 12 months multiplied by 17 years (1926 to 1943) would give you 2,040 deaths. Hmmm... remember, it WAS the White Plague. Hell, we had over 100 deaths in 2001 and 2003 statewide in Kentucky and we\'ve got good treatment. Where is reason? LOL! Don\'t get emotionally invested folks, their ignorance is FUN

Owen, from the post on the 18th re: your friend John: Yes, please, give him my email, I would like to speak with him and see his documents. Your failure to respond will be perceived as an insubstantial claim. LEt\'s end this with these \"historians\" who think they\'re in the field of healthcare and medicine.

Firstly, I appreciate and can understand the curiosity surrounding Waverly, but trespassing is a MAJOR no-no. Charles and Tina Mattingly are happy to work with you should you decide you want to take a tour. Secondly, I am curious as to why a number of folks want to flame on here but not give their names? Takes away from your crediblity; you and your opinions are summarily dismissed. Thirdly, mycobacterium tuberculosis is an often misunderstood disease, and most people do not realize you can be a carrier and not transmit it if it is encapsulated in your lung, that is to say, the body \"incarcerates\" it and walls it off occassionally.About 150 cases were reported via physicains in 2001/ 2003. So, yeah, we\'ve come a long way. If you were ever a part of the cardiopulmonary family you would understand the legitimacy of the death toll @ Waverly Hills Sanatorium; turn of the century folks, prior to INH and rifampin and yes, even streptomycin the death toll was stagggering to say the least. If any of you found it on the Ky. Death Index you didn\'t find much as it deals largely with individual deaths (this per the Office of Vital Statistics in Frankfort, Ky.), now, moving forward, that office will be getting back with me before the end of the week because they\'ve been good enough to provide the data for us to end this silly argument. Hope this helps eliminate ignorance.

the person that keeps acting like they know everything about the tb hospital and how many people died there needs to talk to someone else other then the \"historian\" they claim to know. I talked to someone that has been working for the lghs for 4 years now and has given over 100 tours there about you and how you claim to know everything. he said NO ONE knows exactly how many died there but it was around 63,000. He also said theres always someone out there claiming to know about it and knows this person or that person but they are always wrong. so if you would please quit acting like you know everything, I think everyone would really appreciate it.

Seeing stupid people like yourselves trespassing and trying to bribe other people is just not right. If you want to see Waverly the RIGHT way,go and take a damn tour you dumbasses. Keep in mind that if you don\'t have an open mind during going into these places, then you WON\'T see anything. Me and my friend both viewing your webpage, BOTH agree that you guys SUCK at ghost hunting. Find another profession. Have a nice day!

As I said before, I\'m not saying that it isn\'t haunted. I\'m only pointing out that you can\'t believe everything you hear. Keep in mind that as far back as the years that Alberhasky owned it and he had the huge party, there was hype to draw people in so that he could make money off of them. I have even heard it told that 10,000 people died there when the main hospital first opened. Considering that just under 5000 people died that year in the entire county, it just doesn\'t add up. Just look up the Kentucky Death Index and do a search on jefferson county to get the exact figures for yourself. There was no room where the bodies were drained, there were no horrid experiments, there were no mental patients on the 5th floor, and 502 was a patients bathroom-- not a nurses station. The 3rd floor where \"Mary\" was supposed to have died was always the men\'s ward. The misinformation goes on and on. In fact, if Waverly is indeed haunted, I would expect the \"ghosts\" to be pretty pissed off at all the lies.

Owen I\'m not knocking the owner at all. The figures she has are, as I said before, either made up and widely believed since well before they bought it, or taken out of context and believed for just as long. Fact is that there are no real figures-- only estimates. The estimate of 63,000 has no basis in fact, whereas the much lower number of 5000-6000 comes from a historian who not only looked up entire years worth of death certificates, but he also has some long lost reports written by the staff and a statement from a former medical director who worked at Waverly from 1945 to 1955 who states that the worst year for deaths in the history of the hospital was 152 deaths in a single year. If you do the math, 152 times the 51 years of operation ends up as 7752, and that would be if every year had the same number of deaths which just isn\'t the case. As you can see, 63,000 is just not even close. If you would like, I\'ll contact John and get more specifics on the numbers he has. But I\'m sure you can agree that an estimate based on actual documentation is much more believable than a huge number with nothing to back it up. No matter how many people repeat it. I am also not knocking you for repeating the numbers. If even the owners and tour guides don\'t know the real numbers how could you? It took John, his wife, and several of his friends alot of long hours of research to come up with the figures that they have. So there is no way that anyone could expect you to have known it. If you are interested in discussing this further with John just let me know and I\'ll pass on your email address to him.

You\'re kind of right. The original hospital was built for forty patients. But in 1912, the hospital for advanced cases was opened, which held an additional 70 patients-- if memory serves me correctly. In 1915, the children\'s pavillion opened, which also held 50. There were other expansions, too. So, there were not 200 people crammed into a building that only held 40 patients. The main hospital opened in 1926. That\'s when the patient population increased, so before that, the number of deaths would have been significantly lower because there were fewer patients. In 1945, they started using effective medication to treat TB. By 1950, talks were underway about possibly closing the hospital because the medications were so effective that they didn\'t need such a big facility. So, out of the 51 years of operation, less than half of the years had the higher death rate. And even then, according to my friend the historian\'s statistics the average death rate was approximately 100 per year. I\'m not saying Waverly is not haunted. I\'m just pointing out how you can\'t believe everything you hear, including statistics and stories of hauntings. I have plenty of other examples if anyone is interested. For example, the \"bleeding room\" everyone talks about was really nothing more than a transformer room. Everyone still spreading that lie has been given access to the truth. They just choose to stick with the hype rather that to be honest. So what else is not being told correctly?

well apparently no one knows how many people actually died there. I have always heard that it was around 63,000 but it could be wrong. Louisville did have the largest outbreak of tb and had trouble making room for all the patients in the old building. it only held between 40 and 50 patients. The new one held over 400. Waverly opened in 1911 and closed in 1962. 51 years of people dieng is alot. I don\'t know what to believe about the history of how many died, but I do believe it is haunted. As for the footprints, maybe someone was playing a joke but its awful funny that there were no small children with us and no one in the group had that small of feet. think what you want but you obviously weren\'t there to experience what we did. Yeah maybe I was wrong about the CITY knowing the history but are you calling the people that were around at that time liars?

well apparently no one acutally knows how many people died at waverly. I have always heard it was about 63,000 but obviously other people think it was way less then that. You have to think, Louisville had the largest outbreak of tb and lots of people died. they had to build a bigger building to fit all the patients because the other one only held 40-50 patients. the bigger building held 400. Its possible that all those people died. it opened in 1911 and closed in 1962. I don\'t know what to believe about the history of how many died, but I do believe its haunted. Maybe someone did make those footprints, but we didn\'t have any small children with us and there was no one in the group or around that had that small of feet. believe what you want, but obviously you weren\'t there to experience what we did.

Next time you go on a tour, make a footprint near the door with a wet shoe. On your way back out, look at it. It will look like a solid sole shoe. The water spreads out until tread is no longer there. As far as the numbers, they are NOT from the city. The city denies ever being associated with any of the records. The 63,000 is a number that was either made up, \"comes from Alberhasky\'s time\" or taken out of context. Maybe 63,000 people died throughout KY, but it is NOT an accurate number of deaths at Waverly. A historian that I have spoken with has shown me proof that it was more like 5,000-6,000 total and even that is being liberal with the estimate. He has copies of all of the death certificates for certain years and even has a statement from a former assistant medical director who states that the worst year for deaths at Waverly was in the mid 40\'s when 152 people died in a single year. That\'s quite a bit lower than the \"one person per hour\" fairytales. That is an outrageous number.I can\'t imagine there being that many people die there.

I believe it is haunted only because I have experienced things while on a private tour of 14 people. We went with dale and a few other people from the louisville ghost hunters society. while on the 3rd floor a door slamed and something threw a pebble at dale. me and my boyfriend were right behind him when it happened. then we felt the coldest breeze I have ever felt in my life go right passed us. It wasn\'t cold outside either. we were walking down the hall and heard something that sounded like a little girl laughing so we went to investigate. we walked into the room where the noise was coming from. the floor was covered in water and there was a small dry spot (maybe big enough for someone to step in). in the middle of the dry spot the was a set of childrens shoe prints. they appeared to be solid sole shoe prints. thinkin maybe someone was playing a trick everyone checked the bottoms of their shoes and no one had on solid soles. we\'ve seen the shadow people and experienced noises no one could explain. so if you ask me, its haunted. I would love to go up there again and hopefully will be soon . I have been there twice on tours and they lasted for more then 4 hours. I believe everything I heard from the louisville ghosts hunters.for People that are negative about waverly hills, well maybe you need to go up there and experience things for yourself. It makes me angry when people say oh its not real ...blah blah blah. the history is real about the thousand upon thousands of people who died there. most of the history comes from the city(they should know) and from people who have witnessed it.

anyone who lives in louisville has been to waverly at least once and although i have never seen anything with my own eyes, i am convinced that it is haunted. The feeling you get in that building is very strange, very sad. I snuck up there quite a few times when i was younger but i would love to go on a legitamate tour. i have a great aunt that died there and it always has been of interest to me. for all of those thinking about going there please make note that the building is very old and unsafe, take a peek if you must but dont go inside. if anyone has any info on how to get ahold of Tina W. please e-mail me.

There go those figures again. I wonder if anyone ever really researches this stuff? Or just spout out whatever stories they\'ve heard? Has anyone actually found anything that says 63000 deaths? Has anyone ever found proof of the \"suicides\"? I mean reall proof, that they can actually show you, not just claim that they have it. How about the video tape of that AGS guy getting hit by the brick, has anyone seen that? If you ask me, there are too many suckers ready to believe anything.

The first time I ever went up to Waverly Hills was to go there with my mom, so she could see a psychitrist (sp) in 1972. I was 7 years old. We went to a large green building past the hospital and I stayed outside while she went in to see the doctor. I played in the yard with my sister, and we waited on the large front steps. The building was nice and mom showed us where the \"nurses quarters\" were and she explained that it had been an old TB Sanitorium. The place was busy with lots of people coming and going, and people working. And the view from the top of the hill was great. You could see all the way down towards the Ohio River. In my 7 year old mind, nothing seemed too remarkable about this place other than it looked like a castle. Later in 1974 my step-grandfather had a stroke and was placed in the Woodhaven Nursing Home/ Waverly Hills. That was the first time that I was allowed to go inside the hospital. Of course it was cold and damp in the fall of 1974, when we first went to visit him on the hillside. Through the large front doors, there was a beautiful front desk with brass, marble & pillars. We turned to the right to climb the steps to the second floor. Inside the heavy door on the landing of the steps, sat a candy machine, and that was best part of the trip. I remember it always being warm in the building, almost hot. There was always a window open in the bathroom on the first floor. And of course everything was \"antique\" and painted green. The old brass light fixtures that hung from the ceilings, had tarnished in the bathroom. There were tiled floors and the bathroom door had a piece of \"frosted like\" glass in the doorway. The light switch was those old antique \"buttons\" that you pushed to get the light on or off. The main floor in the bottom of the building had a gift shop, and craft shop where people worked on skills to help rehabilitate their hands, or just keep them busy while they were in the \"home.\" At the far left of the main doors when you went down the hallway, again through large heavy doors, there was an elevator at the end of the hall. But it was always so spooky back there, I never liked to walk that way. I preferred the large marble steps with the heavy brass handrail. (My brother and I tried to slide on it). My Step-grandfather, was up on the second floor, because he wasn\'t in too good of health. The stroke had left him paralized on the right side and he never fully gained that function again. So he was in a wheelchair, and his room was on the backside of the building at the far end of the hallway, to the left. His room had two big opening doors to the solarium (open aired porch). This was great, because we could go out there and play while our parents visited. At that end of the hall was also a large room, where Denver was allowed to go and watch TV (he didn\'t like it) or listen to someone play an old upright piano. I don\'t remember this to be the cafeteria room, though, it seemed like a \"commons area\" where people meet. Some people may not know this but I want to think this was called the \"Chapel\" where they sometimes had singing and preachers come to visit. I know they had Christmas Carolers and visits from the Salvation Army. But I guess this is a \"haunted site\" and you\'d rather hear the \"scary stuff.\" The older that I got and the more brave, my brother, sister and I became in the building. We had to explore. I felt comfortable enough to not be TOO SCARED in the familiar areas, or where I knew an adult would be, but the dark corners, of the hallways where always scary. I hated being told to go down to the truck and get my mother something, because I had to either ride the elevator by myself, or \"run\" up the stairs. The building was full of strange sights and sounds. And even more strange and \"scary\" people. I forgot to tell you my mother went to work there when I was about 11 as a nurses aid. Sometimes she worked on the third floor. And that was where the \"insane\" patients were kept. On the left end of the floor probably referred to as the North Hall.Anyway, in that hall I had to walk, in the center of the floor, because there were patients on the left that had \"plywood board doors\" that came almost to the top of the door, there was a 6\" inch gap at the bottom of the door where dusty white feet stuck out, or a 6\" space in the top of the \"door\" where the patients stuck their hands out of and reached for you. Many times I heard, \"hey girl, come here!\" And I kept walking. The poor old fragile faces were twisted with pain, and their hair was usually a mess. Sometimes they were naked, because they threw their gowns over the boards. I kept walking. On the South Hall at the end of the corridor was a dormitory where many beds were placed. The ladies that lived in them were nice and seemed to be \"at their self\" except for a \"girl\" that was simple minded and carried a baby doll. She worried the poor nurses and aides to death. She stayed near the nurses stationa and rambled on and on. It was a strange sight to see a woman \"girl\" that age in her 40\'s carrying a doll. She always acted as though she would \"share\" it with me, and then take it back and laugh. Mom would remember her name, I don\'t. There was an old man that got up everyday and put on his work-boots with his clothes, so he could go to work. Some dressed and cared for themselves, and others were \"out of it\". There were cancer patients there, and people that you couldn\'t give a match too. Or there were some folks that seemed to be just fine, Woodhaven was their home. Each year the staff got together and crowned a \"King and Queen\" for the patients. We were so proud when Denver Turner, my step-grandfather was given the title. He was really well liked there. I keep forgetting the scary stories. The so called \"Tunnel of Death\" would scare the HELL out of anyone, I got the honors of being pushed out into that scary tunnel one night by my brother and sister. He and I got the big notion to ride the elevator down to the bottom of the building, we were scared to death, because we knew that the building was haunted and that the morgue was down there. So the doors open, I see a concrete wall, and boom, my brother pushes me out,tries to yank me back in, but the doors shut behind me. I screamed, and suddenly he opened the elevator door and grabbed me back inside. He was as scared as I was, and then the doors wouldn\'t shut, and go back up. So there we stood scared stupid and couldn\'t get the doors to shut. We started hitting everything we could hit on that panel to get the doors to close. OMG I\'ve never been so scared. The only ghosts that I know that I saw was an old man in work clothes, no hat, just white britches and a shirt. I was on the third floor playing on the solairum on the south side of the building, when I saw an old man open the door at the end of the corridor, near the ladies dormitory. He stepped through and closed the door behind him. I went and got my mother, because there was a rule that no men were allowed on that side, and I couldn\'t figure out where he was going. I told mom in the hallway, that a man had gone inside the doorway. So we walked down there and she looked and told me that those doors were locked, nobody could go inside. But I saw him. He did go inside that door. Freaked me out. Many times, in that building I go goosebumps, and the feeling that there was someone standing near me. I would always high-tail-it to find an adult. I remember watching a herse come up to the front of the building, it was snowing outside, and looking down out of the windows below (facing the Ohio) and watching it back in to the building. I told my mom about that, and she said that the hearse never came to the front of the building, I was wrong. I went back and looked again, and there was nothing there. My mother told stories of security guards seeing someone on the grounds in a gown or night-clothes, but nobody was missing from the building. My mother tells the story of a nurse coming to the nurses station in full regalia white, cap, gown, cloak, white stockings, and white nurses shoes (the kind they wore in the 40\'s & 50\'s) and this nurse asked if the doctor had been in and done his rounds. The stunned nurses said, \"yes.\" And the \'nurse\' left and went to the elevator and left. They searched the place over for her. The security guards couldn\'t find her. Waverly Hills was full of all kinds of stories and people, good, scary, sad, bad...it was all there. When the state came in and shut down the place, my mother had to find another job, my step-grandfather another home to live in, and many patients lost a good place to live. I know the building was old. The nurses, and people did the best they could with what they had to work with. They had no air-conditioning, and ancient facilites to use for cooking, bathing, and taking care of people. It was sad to know the place was closed, and even sadder to see it destroyed by vandalls and reckless carelessness. The marble alone in that building would have been in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and it is all gone. Sad. There was a great deal of history on that hillside, and it seems to be lost forever. As for their Haunted House they have there every year, you couldn\'t pay me $20.00 to go up there to be scared!!!! It is scary, damn scary without \"haunting it up.\" I saw the TV show they did, and I am sure I\'ll watch the movies they have done as well. It will be interesting to see what they managed to put back together of the \"operating room\" and \"dining room.\" The shower/bathroom was another visit to the past. I hope to see that building up and running one day, it\'s a shame it couldn\'t have been used for Cancer patients today, or AIDS patients.

I have been up to Waverly on a private tour during restoration. The funny thing about that place is, depending on your spiritual status, you may or may not see anything. My brother kept on turning around thinking that someone was following him. But eveytime it was nothing. I on the other hand felt nothing at all. I think this is because I was raised as a strong Jehovah\'s Witness. He was too but he never had the true zeal for it and he was always dabbling in spiritism. So yes I think demons live there but I dont think that they talk to the spiritually stable.

I went there just recently for the haunted house and me and my friends all got out of the car and as i was looking around i looked up and something caught my eye and i looked up and i saw a males face and he was looking around at me and all my friends and i told my friend to look up nad he also saw it and i looked back up it went away in a snap. I got goosebumbs off this. And everyone who thinks WHS is not haunted they need to get themselves checked bacause i know it is. I also felt things looking at me and luring around me and my friends as we walked through. Dont ever say its not haunted.

I am no longer classifying anything as haunted or not haunted. I\'m letting you the reader decide. I want to believe, I really do, but until I see something with my own eyes I can\'t. Check out the new message board!

Went there last week. Got chased by two shadow people, and saw someone on the roof. Went to the left, then the right, then leaned over a rail and dissapeared over and over again. Saw something dressed in white moving twords us from the stairwell in front of the main entrance to the woods. Twigs and branches snapped around us as we walked down the street to get back to the apartments. Place is haunted. Paying for a tour next time I visit. I would rather visit the place legally from now on, even though I didn\'t get caught.

No matter what anyone says, Waverly Hills is infested with supernatural activity. The National Ghost Hunter Society visited Waverly several years ago and they recorded so much activity that their EVP (electronic voice phenomena) monitors fried. One of their members was also struck in the head by a light fixture and they all observed a brick sliding across the floor. I personally have seen a man wearing white standing in a window for several seconds before disappearing. GHOSTS ARE REAL! THEY DO EXIST! THE SUPERNATURAL ARE PRESENT IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES!

THIS MESSAGE IS FOR ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING..DO NOT GO TO WAVRELY HILLS TO LOOK AROUND. I WORKED THERE WHEN I WAS VERY YOUNG AND TRUST ME, I KNOW THE RUSH OF BEING 15 YEARS OLD. PLEASE DO NOT SNEAK UP THERE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE PUTING YOURSELF AND YOUR FRIENDS IN THE PATH OF. THIS IS NOT A GAME. THIS IS NOT A DARE.

Ok, listen here. I\'ve lived in KY my whole life. Ive heard about WHS and I go to school right down the street. The IDOITS who made the video are clearly suffering from something, because they didn\'t happen to see all the orbs on the courtyard picture. Plus the object in the window, that they had admitted to seeing. So, Mabey you should check up on your facts before you say WHS is not haunted.

Hm... I think WHS _is_ haunted. I\'ve read an article about the crew behind the prairieghosts.com website. They\'ve investigated WHS too, and - I belive them - they got in contact with one of the mysterious shadows lurking around on floor 3 and 4. They got in touch with the evil spirits in room 502, got attacked by them with materialized bricks, bulbs and plastic bottles ect. Even their EMF meter nearly melted and passed the max scale range, driven by the scaring amount of energy the EMF meter had detected (especially in 502). I think there ARE still enough lost (and maybe angry) souls at WHS and I swear myself not to dare one lousy step into WHS after dusk (if I ever will get close enough to it)! Whatever, go on to investigate WHS and I believe you will get in touch with \"them\", too

Cathy, I am not sure what site the photo came from. After I have completed the research on a place I do an image search on google, and it was one of the best ones that came up.

Kelli, I agree with your comments. I did mention in the last paragraph that it was worthy of more study, but due to the little time we spent there, I did not see anything conclusive to give it anything other than a (not Haunted) conclusion. I have now added a rateing script where readers like yourself can decide if it\'s haunted or not. Please enjoy!

I have been to Waverly Hills Hospital, and I belie that it is haunted. My best friend was the first to notice a white light coming around the corner of the back of the building. I have actually been there twice now, and the second time we got caught by security. I would like to say that it could possibly be the scariest place on earth. I would love to go back, even though I would have another asthma attack, but I don\'t want to get caught by security again!!!!

If you believe that Tina is telling the truth, and you have pictures that you can\'t explain (dust? We\'re you there when the machines we\'re moving and it was settling? I\'ll bet it was HOURS after the last mechanic left) and that you cannot explain the \"people\" in the windows, at LEAST owes this location an \"unknown\" on the haunted scale, or a \"possibly haunted\".

Very cool website. It looks like in the courtyard picture, both edited and unedited, there is a woman standing beside the tree.

Well, I see the little face you think could possibly be a security guard. I have a couple of questions though: Would a security guard be that low in the window so only his head could be seen? Tiny head, that. Also, same photo: Far top right window to the right of the zipping \'orb\' or whatever: Looks like a side profile of woman in a dress with her hair up in a Gibson girl hairstyle. Just my observation, and it could be an illusion from brightness or things in the room.

When you go on an investigation you don\'t always feel, hear or smell something right then and there that is why we take a lot of pictures. Sometimes we do feel strange, or hear things or smell things but you have to remember you are dealing with spirits and they don\'t always show up the way we would like them to. You have some great pictures from the sanitarium showing some great orbs which are spirits. I can\'t believe that you don\'t believe in spirits and ghost or even aliens, because they are all out there somewhere. Why waste your time if you don\'t believe? I only wish that my club could visit this place, but unfortuntately it is kind of far away for us to go. We have a lot of haunted places in Michigan and we have traveled to Ohio and Chicago too. Maybe someday we will travel to Kentucky I hope.

I said it wasn\'t Haunted as of right now, and depending of further investigation. There was nothing seen or experience on the outside to suggest that this place is haunted. We will be going back this summer and will spend the night inside. Then that should really prove something.

How can you say it isn\'t haunted if you haven\'t done a full fledged investigation inside the sanitorium? I\'m not hearing anything about trying to collect EVP\'s, EMF meter readings, video recording and digital pics of the inside.

Darlin\', you might want to get your facts straight before posting them on the web: more people did die at Waverly than at Gettysburg (51,112).
