Notes on Spooked show on the SciFi channnel
by JimC, Wednesday 21 June 2006 - 06:31:59

"Spooked - The Ghosts of Waverly Hills Sanatorium" aired on the SciFi channel in early June, 2006. The 2 hour show was a 'documentary' - essentially 'The Making of the Death Tunnel' a 2005 movie based on and filmed at Waverly Hills.

Background:

Waverly Hills opened in 1926 at a cost of $1.1 million and operated as a TB sanatorium until 1961. During this time, an estimated 63,000 people died. It was remodeled and opened as Woodhaven Geriatric in 1963, then closed in 1980 due to patient abuse.

[ CORRECTION: Based on information from John Amerine, who has a database of death certificates from Waverly, the total that dies there is much closer to 6-8,000. ]

The hill top location and winged design facing southwest were designed to capture the prevailing breezes as fresh air was thought to be critical to recovery from TB.

Tunnel:

525 foot steam-heated tunnel to bottom of hill. Used to bring in supplies and for employees when snow made the roads up to the sanatorium impassable. One half was stairs and one half was a cement incline with a tracked trolley system for moving materials up and down.

When death rate was at 3 people per hour, the tunnel was used to discretely remove the bodies to the bottom of the hill for family pickup, train shipment, or the crematorium.
