Just read that the Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Louisville is to be turned into a luxury hotel. Waverly Hills was for many years a tuberculosis facility and 63,000 patients died there. More recently it was a nursing home and was closed by the State of Kentucky due to abuse allegations. Of course, the new owners will be playing up the buildings reputation for hauntings. Several years ago I was on a home tour in Austin that included the 1860s era State Asylum, as it was once named. If any place was going to be filled with bad vibes, I would expect it to be that old structure. On the contrary, as I walked through the halls with the light switches on the outside of the rooms (think about it) I felt very comfortable and at peace. That was important to me and it's almost always been that way for me. I've spent a lifetime exploring old houses and buildings, many simply abandoned. My interest is a love of old architecture but I also like to imagine who might have lived there. Any old place is going to have experienced all the joy and sorrow that life brings, but I think any vibes one gets are probably the creation of the visitor. Only one time, out of thousands of buildings, did I feel real uncomfortable. It was somewhere in upstate New York and not even a really old house. On the second floor I just had a strong sense of, "Get OUT!". So I did. Happily, I've never had it happen again because for me, going through these places, particularly alone, is right up there with se......well I enjoy it a lot.
