Welcome To Waverly
Waverly Hills Sanatorium is a beautiful example of early 20th century early Tudor Gothic Revival style architecture and a significant contributor to the Louisville, Ky community. It is listed on the National Historic Register and faced the threat of being torn down. During the building’s existence, it became known as one of the “most haunted places on earth.” The Waverly Hills Historical Society, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, was formed to save the building and promote the education of its history, treatment, architectural significance, and impact it and tuberculosis on the local community. The WHHS now runs Tours and Investigations, plus special and seasonal events to raise funds to accomplish their goal.
We are always working on the building and grounds when we don’t have events, so the grounds are not accessible without a reservation.
Our opportunities to visit are:
- Public Tour & Investigation Season – All Year Round.
- Private Overnights – All Year Round.
- Halloween Events Fundraisers Oct 1-Oct 31. If applicable. Recent Pandemic changes means our events could change form but still be available in some compacity.
