Plans underway for Waverly Hills rebirth as hotel

As reported last week the Louisville Metro Council was set to meet today to approve a request to rezone the abandoned Waverly Hills Hospital and convert it to a hotel and conference center. The request would convert the old tuberculosis hospital into a 120-room hotel, conference center, restaurant, and liquor-bottler.

Waverly Hills started life as a hospital to care for the terminally ill, most of whom suffered from tuberculosis. It was in operation from 1910 to 1962. It has since been a favorite site for ghost hunters, and was for many years home to haunted tours. Waverly Hills is believed to be one of the most haunted sites in America.

The rezoning decision, which is expected to pass, will hopefully draw more business into Louisville. There will also be a museum on the fourth floor to showcase the history of the historic site. The new project is estimated to cost $20 million dollars.
