W = Waverly Hills Sanatorium
Located in Louisville, Kentucky the Waverly Hills Sanatorium is dubbed the most spiritually active place on earth, and has been featured on many paranormal shows. The land was originally purchased by Major Thomas H. Hays in 1883. He started a one room school house for his daughter. The teacher named the school, Waverly School for her fondness for the "Waverly novels." The board of Tuberculosis Hospital kept the name after purchasing the land and building the sanatorium. It served as a tuberculosis hospital until 1961. It was renovated in 1962, and reopened as Woodhaven Medical Services as a geriatric facility, and closed by the state in 1980.
Let me know if you see any ghosts because I'll be waiting for you on the tour bus. Yeah, I'm sitting this one out.

Sounds rather icky, and has a bad karma feel to it. Not a cozy sounding place for the geriatric crowd after all that history!
I think I've seen a few ghost hunting shows that have been to that place. Very creepy.
Yeah, I wouldn't go in either!
I know I wouldn't want to visit. I did love your post and learning something new. Oooooo scary!
