Tours & Paranormal Investigations

Waverly Hills Sanatorium is known as one of the most haunted places in America. Each year thousands of people visit Waverly to see the architecture, learn of the rich history, or chance an encounter with the unknown. The Waverly Hills Historical Society runs tours by reservation only each year, March thru August.


There are two main types of tours, Guided Tours follow a strict path with a tour guide, Public Investigations that allow free roam for a period of time on each floor and Private Investigations which allow for free investigation of the building with or without a guide after initial walk-through.

You can learn more about the different tour types available below.
