Title: Our Waverly Hills Trip - 6-15-09
Post by: Ghost1 on Jun 16 2009 - 04:27PM
Hey everyone............ Waverly Hills was just  AMAZING!    Just driving up to the building for the first time and seeing it's foreboding look appear in front of you on top of the hill hidden in the woods.

Gargoyles welcome you, as you enter the parking lot.  What a very fitting welcome.  This place is just huge and the overwhelming feeling of paranormal activity is incredible and all around you.  By far the most active place I have ever been to in my life.  I was shoved 4 times.... and I mean shoved not touched or slightly pushed.  Three times in the death tunnel and once going up the stairs to floor 3.  In the stair well I was pushed off the stairs and then I could hear a deep harsh breathing from below me and a 20plus degree temp drop.  I am very rarely scared, but this did scare the hell out of me.....I was touched, could hear breathing and the temp dropped all at once.

I have hundreds and hundreds of pictures and videos to go through, including about 6 hours of nonstop DVR surveillance.  I just woke up after being up for 27 hours straight, I got back home at 7:45am and went right to Bed.

Pictures in video will follow shortly.



Here are a few pic's I just added, including the death tunnel.  Note that some of the windows have been replaced, they are starting to restore the place a bit.

I'm slowly starting to go through the 654 pictures I took yesterday on two cameras.  I've already found  few odd things but I want to go over them more before I post.  I have one of a what looks to be a woman at the end of a dark hall, but I'm still not sure and I'm working on it..... BTW, EVERYTHING was dark there, blacker then black.

Here is a interesting ORB (yeah I know) picture, it has no rings around it, it's not your standard dust or water ORB. If it's real or not I'm not sure, but it looks cool next to the gargoyle.  :*:

Ok, I'm looking through DVR surveillance video from the trip.... Looking for ghosts and shadows, however I have found something flying in the morgue that I can't explain.  I'm working on the video.


Here are the freeze frames, see what you make of it.  It's like nothing I've ever seen.

Indeed that is a nice looking ORB next to the gargoyle picture. I used to wonder why places like hospitals and libraries would have something as hideous as gargoyles built or sculpted into their beautiful architecture. I never really thought about it until at about age 10 or 11 when I went to the movies to see....."Gargoyle".....My best friend and I were terrified for weeks/months or it could have been a year or more for my friend. She got it worse than I did. The movie portrayed them as hideous creatures that were impossible to kill or get away from.

Some time ago .... I don't remember were or why .... but I did find out that gargoyles are considered to be the gatekeepers and watchers. For the most part they are on the side of good and only look the way they do so that they will have all the tools that would take to stave off an evil attack from were ever or who ever. If they were fluffy and sweet looking how many demons would be scared off from the sight of them. In a lot of cases they don't even have to fight thier daunting features cause would be attackers to back up and think again. Now..... I adore gargoyles!

Oh Dear Heavens what the heck is that ?!?! It looks crazy!!!! At one point it looks like a backbone and ribcage clinging to the ceiling!! Heaven's to Betsy and Mergatroit even  ter I know that had to be paranormal. How could it be explained away? This is going down in the history books. Great job Ghost! bo

Here is the video slowed down 150%..... this thing was moving fast!  Also the camera that caught this is a high end Bosch with true IR vision, there was no IR emitter to refelect.  The only faint light was from a window behind the camera....and it was faint too, it was storming and there where no star's or moon showing.  For the most part the room was pitch black

Having never seen a bird on IR that would have been my first guess after seeing the video except for 2 things.  1. Ghost1 says he has seen a bird on IR and it doesn't look like a bird. AND 2. It appears to fly into the wall and dissappear into thin air.

The thing Ghost1 captured looks like it could be a "rod".

That's really, REALLY developed for a rod... Ghost has IR video of rods from his house, and this is far beyond that. Someone wanted to be seen, and someone wanted to put on a show for the camera. It would be interesting to know if there were any patients there who had a fascination with birds or flying creatures, and wanted to be one. Perhaps in death a little bit of them got their wish.

Post by: Ghost1 on Jun 18 2009 - 09:35AM
Here is another interesting one I just found.  There where a few IR cameras in the building, but none of them where at head height in the middle of a doorway they where all in corners up high out of the way.  Plus IR cam's don't look quite like that.............  So I'm not really quite sure what this is.

Here is the only picture I could find that shows what IR light looks like in a picture.

Scaryd ....was this bright circle a light from a camera behind that curtain or something like that or is it too unexplained? That one really looked cool.  Those black curtains or whatever they are would be a great backdrop for capturing a ghostly form in front of them. The ghost wouls show up really good .... except for the shadow ppl ghost which I hear that Waverly has it's share of them also.  Thanks for the pics Scaryd

I have a ton of audio and video to go through, Im hoping I caught something. On the fourth floor my camera tripod which was in my hands was pushed forward as John and I were walking. It startled me, and of course I wasnt recording at the time. That was the first time I have ever experienced something like that. And I still cant get over how crazy that place was. Something is definitely there, and its always watching your every step, you can just feel it.

As far as I know it is not a flash light I had a red flash light so did my husband and mine was usually point up towards my face because I was trying to hold to many things. But I can not be sure.

Ghost1:  Is it possible for you to zoom in and enhance the image in the 5th picture of stills you posted from the morgue?  Not sure if you can, and I know you have a ton to go through, but shucks, if you could that would be just ever so grand!!

p.s...... Ghost1 <3's Orbs.  :)

p.p.s..... those are some pretty sweet orbs!

I just got done watching that video, numerous times.  And it is just amazing.  To chime in on the possibility of it being a bird, Ghost1 pointed out something earlier that I hadn't paid much attention to when I watched it the first time, and that is that it's been slowed down, a LOT.  The whole thing happened in I think 4 seconds, so whatever it is, it was hauling it's ethereal a$$!

Ghost1 also pointed out that there is no pixelation at all in the area directly below the....I don't know what.  What IS this thing?

Pic is zoomed to 612%, and I jacked up the contrast a bit.

Here are a few shots I took at Waverly Hills. 
The first shot shows two visters looking back into The Death Tunnel...  I'm hoping that the giant man sized shadow on the wall is just a natural phenomenon.   cho

The second picture is a photo of an investigation inside room 503.  I was outside looking towards the room.

The last picture is my very first ghost picture!  Whether or not it actually is a ghost picture, I cannot say.  But it looks that way to me!  (ghost is in doorway, his head is right under the lit circle of the flashlight.  It looks like a small boy to me.)

OH. OK.  It probably is a lot more obvious on your copy. On the pic after it is downloaded onto the site you can only see a splash of white. But there does seem to be some sort of outline to it. I just can't make it out on this copy. Thanks for sharing it with us Twilightsm!

I see what you mean, it does look like a human form.  I don't have any of my software on the PC I'm using now to zoom in and enhance it though....... I check it out closer later.

I see many spirits in this photo. Not all are real plain but I circled some of the best ones that I see so that you can take a look. The most noticable is the one that you found Matt but I can see some others that are rather convincing .....to me at least.

hey colleen, thanks for the input, I think the top left is part of the tree, and the one at the bottom in the middle is a post with graffiti on it. the others could be something. who knows, the one i see might just be something on the walls too. but I dont see it in other pics I took.  :^:

Ok Im not sure if this is anything, I was debating whether or not to even post this, But I see what looks like a little boys face, on the very top floor where you see the three big windows in the middle of the building, in the center left window, you need to zoom in at least 150%. I dont have time to circle it for everyone, sorry... I need to go to work now. :^(     And john if its nothing then you can delete this post...

Post by: mattevp on Jul 14 2009 - 09:48PM
Yeah colleen thats the spot..... thanks for the circle.LOL
If you zoom in about 200% you can see it much clearer.

Yeah I did notice that it does get clear with the zoom and that is unique because a lot of others that seem to be there get distorted when you zoom in. That's what makes me think that you have a good one there.  Every since you pointed out that pillar with the graffiti on it I am looking at the whole picture differently. A lot of the things that I thought I saw could easily be graffiti or even just one of those pillars... emb  Those wide open dark rooms with the white concrete pillars make great filler for a decent imagination....lol  So now there are just a couple that I keep coming back to and one of them is the figure in the window that you posted about here. I find it very interesting!

Heck this even looks like it could be something to me. Of course it's just basically a transparent outline but still! It sure looks like a little kid leaning on the banister there. In fact it looks as though the elbow is on the banister and he/she is leaning their head on their arm.

THE FLYING THING IN THE VIDEO!!!!!
It is very interesting whatever it is, i think it also looks like a "rod" but i tried slowing it down and actually looking at it: remembering i am not a camera expert and don't really know all about how the ir  :camera: works, but it looks kind of like a bat to me, or the skeleton of a bat, when it comes towards the camera it is as if you can see the wings, the spine and the tail and as it goes away and vanishes it looks a lot like how a bat would fly.  Bats are also incredibly fast so that is why the camera may not have a fast enough frame rate to capture it and "blends it" a little....but this entity or image is glowing white, not black like a bat...do IR camera's make everything white? maybe x-ray the thin skin of a bat?  I don't know, it moves very rapidly and does not seem to come in or leave the frame it just appears, grows in size, then disappears, i really do like this video, maybe we have an entity taking the form of a bat... regardless ...its my two cents.... and it is definitely a very interesting  capture ghost, GREAT JOB  che

What a very bad idea this is......


Owners of a Kentucky haunted hospital plan to make it a haunted hotel

A place that was once home for dying tubercular patients and now a popular tourist attraction for paranormal investigators may become more than a haunted hospital sometime in the near future. The owners of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium filed a zoning plan last spring to convert the former hospital into a hotel and the zoning committee voted in favor for city council to approve the zoning for the project, the Courier-Journal reported last week.
Owners Charlie and Tina Mattingly have plans to turn the former tuberculosis hospital into a 120-room four star hote, convention center, and liquor bottling business. The hotel will cater to the haunted hotel tourists as well as regular guests.According to the plans, the first floor will be used to for a 3,050 square foot restaurant and an 8,500 square foot conference center. The second and third floors will have 120 hotel rooms. The fourth floor will have meeting rooms and a museum focusing on the hospital. Last Tuesday, the Louisville Metro Council's Planning, Zoning, Design, and Land Development Committee voted unanimously for recommendations to approve zoning for the Mattingly's project. The Waverly Hills Sanatorium hospital was open for fifty-two years, from 1910 to 1962. It later reopened as a nursing home but it finally closed in 1982. Over the years, some of the the property's owners have proposed to turn the building into many things, some of which include a prison and a 150-foot statue of Jesus. The Mattinglys purchased the hospital and the 29-acre property for $230,000 in 2001, and in 2012 acquired an additional 80 acres for $800,000. They have been conducting ghost tours in the former tuberculosis hospital and they estimate that about 10,000 people come on their tours every year. The revenue from the tours is used to renovate the building and the surrounding property. The Mattingly's say that they will continue to host paranormal enthusiasts when the building becomes a hotel.
