  1. Loverly,

    I think it is interesting that you chose a photo of Waverly for this post, since it is considered, or is, at least, believed to be, one of the most haunted structures in the United States. I presumed you would elaborate on that aspect of many of these buildings, since death is a major part of their history.

    Do you think that a structure’s reputation of being haunted plays a part in how such edifices are treated?

    That aside, I agree with the issue regarding historical preservation. We can learn quite a bit by maintaining these structures instead of having them razed. Luckily, the owners of Waverly are not planning on destroying this hospital any time soon, and are thinking about transforming it into a hotel. In the meantime, they conduct tours (many of them “ghost” tours) and allow paranormal investigations on a regular basis to raise the money needed for renovations (see here).

    I know we had a recent discussion about this on my blog. I would certainly like to visit Waverly some day.

    Do you have a current update on the place? I haven’t had the time to look further.


    1. Hi!

      Actually, the paranormal group I’m in looked into visiting for a long time. I don’t think they were able to arrange it, I know there’s a pretty good fee for groups who want to investigate. I’ve thought about providing insight into each structure, specifically, but I’m still hashing out ideas for them:-)

      Waverly is a shining example of historic buildings that have been saved because someone took an interest in them. Any interest is better than none.
