Haunted Places In Kentucky
Any places listed in the Haunted Places requires permission to visit or investigate. Many of the
places are patrolled by the authorities, trespassers will be prosecuted.
Witch Hill - There is a tree in the middle of the road in Wilder where 3 witches were supposedly hung, and there is a curse on the
tree to whom ever tries to cut it down, or spits on it. I have been to this place many times, and taken pictures, and many times even
though it was a clear night, the pictures have come back covered in white blotches. You will find many out of the ordinary
happenings on the way out to the tree. - September 2004 update /correction: It has recently been cut down and moved to the
church parking lot at the top of the road. The three humps were also left off the story. There are three evenly spaced humps right
before the bend the tree was on. These are the graves of the witches. The stories of distorted pictures are true though.
Hwy 577 - Off Hwy 30 on Hwy 577 in Annville in Jackson county at night during a full moon you can see a glowing grave late at night.
You can only see it from the road. When you go to the graveyard it disappears.
Paramount Art Center - It is said that during some early renovation work on the Paramount Theatre, a death occurred there and the
man’s ghost has forever since haunted the Paramount. In the early 1940s, four construction workers from Boyd Theater Company in
Cincinnati, Ohio were working on a project inside the auditorium. It is reported that all of them had gone to lunch except one man, a
guy named Joe. When the other three returned, they found Joe hanging from the curtain rigging, dead. And since then, sounds
have been heard, things have gone missing, cold drafts have been felt, and some folks even claim to have seen the image of a man
appear on occasion. However, he is by all means a “good ghost” - one who seems to look out for the benefit of the theatre and its
occupants. When Billy Ray Cyrus was here filming his video for "Achy Breaky Heart," he was told about the legend of Paramount
Joe. Between breaks, Billy Ray would talk to Joe, laughing and joking with him, sometimes even asking for his help. It is customary
to get 8 x 10 photographs signed by each performer that appears at the Paramount and then hang the photo on the 'Wall of Fame' in
the box office. Billy Ray personally autographed large color posters to each of the female employees working here at the time - and
one with a personal inscription to Paramount Joe, whom he now had a fondness for. Each lady put her poster near her desk and
Joe's was hung in the box office, near all the other performers. As time passed and the walls in the box office became too full of
8x10’s signed by other performers, the executive director felt that some of the pictures and posters needed to come down. Since
there were so many of Billy Ray, she asked the women to remove their posters since they were all so similar. Nobody wanted to take
their personally autographed picture of Billy Ray down so they took down the one he had signed to Paramount Joe. The next day,
when the ladies came to work, every single 8x10 and poster that had been hanging neatly on the walls the night before were now
lined strewn on the floor, many of their glass frames shattered! It was as if someone had wiped each one off the wall. To this day,
Paramount Joe’s poster still hangs in the Paramount, in a very special part of The Marquee Room, which is now the site of
Paramount Joe’s Rising Star Café’. There is another story about the time two new employees wanted to investigate the basement in
the Paramount and some old items that had been stored there. To reach the basement, you must go through a door that is located
just inside the lounge outside the ladies restroom. This brings you to the top of the stairs. At the top of those stairs is a light switch
that will light the first section of the stairwell. As you progress, there is a switch that will light each area in front of you. And, there is
no partner switch. In other words, you must turn the light off at the same place you turned it on. The marketing director had offered
to take the two new female employees into the basement and turned on the lights at the top of the stairs. The ladies hurried down
the steps. At that moment the marketing director was called to take a phone call inside the office. He told the other two employees
to wait, he would be right back. In their excitement however, they did not hear him and they continued on. Recounting the story
later, it was at this point they called up to him to turn on the next light for them. As it turned out, he was on the phone longer than
expected and met the ladies as they were coming back up the steps. "Thanks for turning on the light for us," one of them said, "but
we can't get it to turn off." Puzzled, he explained that he had not turned on the light for them – and in fact, could not turn on the
light. The expression on their faces revealed that they were not kidding with him. They lead him back into the basement, only to be
met by darkness. 'Someone' had turned the light off again as well. "Well, thanks Joe," called out one of the ladies, as she shivered.
In 2004, marketing director Tyson Compton was giving a tour to some high school students. As he was relating the Paramount Joe
story, he realized that he was always talking about Joe, and not to him. So as he spoke to the students, he stopped and called out,
“Joe, are you here? Is it ok that I tell your story?” While he swears that he then heard a seat squeak, that is not the most chilling
part of this story. Compton relates how he received a call the very next day from a psychic who lived in the area. She asked him if
someone in his family or a close friend had recently died because she had gotten a message from “the other side.” He said no that
he could think of no one. “Well, she said, “I’m supposed to tell you that Joe said he is here.”
Small Blvd - There is a picture of a young Irish woman that hangs in the 5th house on the left. If you look at the picture the eyes will

much, one of the kids slipped and hit his head on a rock in the shallows. Not thinking straight, the other kids decided to hide the
body under water, tied to a rock. The next day, the kids went to see if the night before had really happened. They arrived to find that
the local authorities had already arrived and discovered the body. To their surprise, their friend had drowned and not died of the

confessed and were sentenced to ten years in prison. Now every full moon, the moon's reflection casts a skull like image on the

Baker Hollow Road Cemetery - Many different things occur at this particular cemetery. It is located off of Baker Church Road going
toward Morganfield. You turn to the left off Baker Church Road on to Baker Hollow Road. There is one cemetery behind the church
on the left. After you pass this church there is a fork in the road, follow it to the left and this is where everything begins. However
on a good night it begins when you first turn on the road. You have to go after dark but the best time to go is around or after
midnight. This cemetery disappears and then reappears in different locations. However it will not show itself when you drive down
the road. You have to drive down to the end of the road and turn around and come back in order to see the cemetery. You will
know when you are close to the cemetery because you will have an overwhelming feeling of sadness and will begin to cry for no
apparent reason. You will see and hear various things. Sometimes you can hear music playing, laughter, screams and hear things
trying to get in your vehicle. There have also been fingerprints and dents in vehicles visitors have taken `ut there as well as
scratches that came from the outside but went all the way thought the glass. If you are actually lucky enough to find the cemetery
and drive up in to it you will not be able to drive out. It is so spiritually active that it drains the battery of your car leaving you
stranded until the morning or until you get brave enough to push your car out. There have been images of Soldiers killing each
other and those around them. There have been sightings of the dense woods opening where you can see more than you should.
The fork in the road rolls and a dense mist appears and disappears as you drive the road. There is also a guardian dog. This dog
closely resembles the "Hounds of Hell" as described in the Bible. This dog has dead yellow eyes and casts the shadow of a demon
when it gets ready to disappear in the triangle at the fork in the road. The dog appears to be injured when it first appears on the
side of the road, thus making you want to stop and pick it up, which in turn gives an open invitation to any spirit that is around.
When you fail to pick up the dog things begin to change. The dog will walk a few steps and then turn to see if you are still following
it. However if you speed up the dog will speed up, if you slow down it will slow down, if you go to the left it will go to the left, if you
go to the right it will go to the right and it is impossible to run over this dog. There have also been sightings of wrecked vehicles
with people screaming for help. Due to the period in time when this cemetery was began you will see images of men who were hung
from the trees out this road before and after you pass the cemetery. You will also see images of dead family members calling to you.
You will also experience a change in the weather when you turn out this road. For instance it will be raining before you turn on the
road, but when you turn on to this road the rain mysteriously stops and the mist begins until you exit this road where the rain will
start again. There are many other things that occur out this road but you have to be very alert and very open to the spirit world and
you cannot show fear or it can take your soul, according to the legend. There are many trapped souls at this location that will mess
with you. Make sure you do not have an open invitation of any kind. This means windows rolled up and doors locked. These spirits
can also communicate with you through your dreams if you will let them. So go if you dare just don't show fear! Everyone sees
something different when they go to this location so be prepared to be scared.
Pilot's Knobb - Witches Grave - This cemetery is located off of Ford's Ferry Road in Marion. The legend behind this cemetery is
about a five year old girl who was burned at the stake, along with her mother, in the late 1800's to the early 1900's for witchcraft. It is
not known what happened to the body of the mother, however the little girl, Mary Evelyn, is buried in a steel lined grave that is
covered with rock and not dirt. She has a white picket fence surrounding her grave. The base of this fence is a series of crosses
that connect end to end. However she is not tall enough to climb over the fence, unlike a normal 5 year old. Her tombstone looks
brand new even though it is close to 100 years old, as does the fence. She paces inside this fence when someone comes to visit
her making faces at them and reaching out to them. She sleeps during the day but is very evident at night. The legend also says
that she can not rest because she is searching for her mother but can not escape the confines of the fence. Many unexplainable
things occur at this cemetery. For one the "Watcher" makes himself very know and tries to follow you out of the cemetery. The
"Watcher" was murdered at the swinging bridge but haunts the witch’s grave. He is trying to get to the little witch but because of
the crosses that surround her he is unable to because he is evil. Crosses appear in the trees both upright and upside down,
directly over her grave, though they face different directions. She presents herself as a normal 5-year-old little girl in a white dress,
though her dress is scorched at the bottom as is her blonde hair. If you lay on her grave she will hold you down refusing to let go
until someone from outside of the fence pulls you free. However never lay on the grave when you are alone because chances are
you will be pulled into her grave to be with her thus giving her more power. As with every haunted cemetery people that are open
to the spirit world sees something different.

McCracken - Paducah - CC Cohen Restaurant - Haunted History - CC Cohen Restaurant - Known to most Paducah residents as the
Cohen building, this important structure was built around 1865, probably for M. Livingston & Company. Afterward, it became a
clothing store, a dry goods store and in 1914, a Paducah City Directory identified the occupants as the R.L. Peacher Liquor Dealers
and the Rehkopf Distilling Company The Cohen Family owned the distinctive corner from around 1921 until 1980, when the last
member of the Cohen family, Stella Cohen Peine, died upstairs in her apartment. Alan Raidt now owns the building and business
know as CC Cohen Restaurant and Bar which now occupies the entire building. It is a favorite stop for both locals and tourists in
the city. The Ghost of Cohen's Past Ask the employees a CC Cohen about Stella. They'll say she's the ghost who lives upstairs and
wanders the restaurant at odd hours. Almost everyone has a story about coming in to open the restaurant and finding chairs moved
or salt and pepper shakers dumped. Others will tell you about lights and signs coming on after they've been unplugged.
They may be talking about Stella Cohen Peine, who lived upstairs after her husband was killed in an alley nearby until her death in
1980. The upstairs "parlor" is a reproduction of the Cohen sisters' living room. The Cohen sisters' picture still hangs in the Parlor.
Written to Stella Cohen by Alan Raidt in 1996 About 1850, this building was constructed to house a distillery, a grocery distributor,
and a host of other businesses.
Around 1900, the Cohen family bought it to house three of their passions....a dry goods store, with the finest turn-of-the century
clothing, shoes and hats...a pawn shop, where the Cohen family could turn an honest (or perhaps dishonest) dollar, and their home
on the 2nd floor.
Stella was a Cohen sister. The A. Cohen Loan office did a booming business on the Market House Square. (his checks are framed
around the building) the dry goods store did well also, and all was well. The Cohens started dying. Stella's husband was murdered
in an alley behind Cohen's and she and her sister closed up shop and lived with her nine cats and two Dobermans until Stella's
sister died around 1950. Stella lived upstairs (now renovated, but was meticulously rebuilt her parlor) until the 1970's. In the Early
1980's the building sold and things started happening. Workmen on the renovation lost tools. Men's equipment didn't work, the
tester aunt opened and things kept happening.
The owner writes: CC Cohen restaurant is my business now, has been for eight years, and Stella keeps making herself known. I
hope she is happy, I am.

blacktop road that runs beside the earth walls of the track and hear the wreck happen. There are no homes behind the track, it's all
woods. There are houses on the creek past the track, as well as before you get to the track. If you want to find this track I'll tell you
how. You go up Lewis Creek, off of US HWY 119 in Partridge. Cross the new state bridge just off 119, then go on up the holler. You'll
cross a set of railroad tracks on your way to the track. You will come to a yard with a fairly large house off in the distance and an old
barn just off the road; this is Lonnie Lewis' house, and barn. The Lonnie that lives in the house is also the Lonnie that the speedway
was named after. The racetrack looks like just a hill, just off the road right past the barn on the left of the road. Make sure ask
Lonnie's permission to go to the actual track because he is now old and might think that you're trying to steal something. His son
also lives in a camper near the track, behind the barn.

haunt the mansion. There have been sightings of Master Clay passing back and forth in front of the top middle window (the
nursery), waiting for his ex-wife and children to return. - June 2005 Update: The Curator at White Hall State Historic Site reports: It is
possible that a daughter and son are at White Hall, as numerous incidents site a woman and a little boy. A baby most certainly
resides in the mansion. On two separate occasions, in two different seasons, tour guides have heard a baby laughing. Another
guide had a small child on her tour remark about seeing babies in the house. The story of Clay passing before the "top middle
window" (which, incidentally is the third floor hallway, and not a nursery) is a story that the works say they never heard of or
experienced at this site. It is doubtful that Cassius would have waited for his ex-wife and children, more likely they would be waiting
for him, as he spent a great deal of time away from home campaigning, fighting in the Mexican War, as ambassador to Russia, and in
general making a spectacle of himself. In addition to sightings of a lady (although we call her "the lady in black," she is rather stylish
and tends to change her clothes, the Curator’s husband has seen her in blue), music has been heard in the mansion (of the piano
and music box variety) as well as footsteps. At times one can also smell candles, perfume, apple pie, bourbon and bacon.

though, he could not be convicted. If you pull up next the iron gates at night an scream at the gates, you can hear the wife and
children screaming for help! It is better that you go alone. If you go alone it rules out all possibilities of echos.

Slade - Tunnel Ridge - As the story goes, about 5 years ago a man from Ohio was up in the mountains of the Red River Gorge
enjoying the beauty and scenery of the mountains. As an inexperienced rock climber, he decided to take his chances anyway and
go climbing for the day. For the most part, he had a pretty good day--until he decided to climb down to the tunnel (otherwise known
as the Nada Tunnel). It was dark outside and he wasn't wearing any bright or distinctive colored clothing and as his luck would have
it, his rope broke. Just as he was falling, a big green bus from the job corps came by and hit him as he was falling. To this day, the
tunnel still glows from his presence. At 1:17am, the tunnel will glow for 13 minutes (the length of time it took him to die). Witnesses
say, as he was dying he mentioned seeing "the glow". Now every year on October 29th, at 1:17am, the tunnel glows.

times you will go and the house will not be locked...As you turn on the road it gets very cold even in the Summer time- February
2004 correction – additional information: Her name was Anna Foster and she died at the age of 28. In the last year or so her
headstone has been stolen and the shelter over her grave has been vandalized and almost torn apart. It's sad and the submitter
has nearly cry every time they see it. They are looking into fixing the shelter themselves. But they cannot afford to replace her
headstone, unfortunately. Upon research they have discovered that she is not the witch everyone thinks. The "real" witch's grave
is located just inside the woods next to this cemetery. - Again, we have to state that if you are going to investigate these places,
have respect for the people involved with these places. To destroy history, and vandalize graves proves nothing but your

set for a different time, cd players will come on by themselves, also different objects within the room will become misplaced
inexplicably. Gillespie (Johnson) Hall - CC is a small school...everyone knows everyone else (1700 students). The freshman girls
dorm has had several incidences on the third floor where they see a girl who does not live there. Sometimes the girl is crying and
sometimes she just stares. Other times she is there and disappears. Doors close and open, TV’s and stereos come on and off,
radios and computers turn on. Padlocked doors are opened and then when you walk back by (minutes later) it will be locked. Some
days it is locked and you can see lights from underneath the door leading up to the attic. It is rumored that she was a cheerleader
who got pregnant by a football player and instead of leaving school (strict place here) she killed herself in the attic. She supposedly
lived on the third floor in 316. One girl who lived in that room was engaged and at night she would take her ring off and put it on the
desk and every morning she would wake up to find it in the garbage.

seems to be wet will not go a way.

playground and football field. There are many different stories. One of which states that an Native American chief will appear at one

the next most haunted part of the school; there are a lot of stories surrounding it. Lights turning on and off and basketballs
bouncing on their own.
Tathum Springs Hotel - The Tathum Springs Hotel was first built as a hot springs resort. A little girl died in the creek that runs round

Bluegrass Heritage Museum - There is a former medical clinic turned museum in downtown Winchester, Kentucky that seems to be
haunted. The stories range from footsteps around, and above the listener to doors opening and closing themselves, and even
sightings of full body apparitions of former clinic employees. Moving cold spots, fluctuating EMF readings, various orb photos, and
such are common in the building especially on the third floor. There have been several very clear EVPs caught in and around the
former operating room, and in various places on the third floor of the building, as well as in the former morgue area. The voices
captured seem to be that of doctor and nurses talking just before, or during a surgery, and of a man screaming, and moaning in
pain. Also, at least one home video exists of heavy footsteps walking, and then running across the floor above the listeners, and of
a hallway door shutting itself, opening itself, and then slamming its self shut. The most compelling evidence this video holds is of a
lock on the third floor hallway door unexplainably unlatching its self right before your eyes, and the door slowly opening. These
events have been witnessed for decades, and by countless numbers of people and as before stated even exists on video. The
building is currently open as a museum for historical tours Tuesday thru Friday for a small admission fee, and plans are in the
works to do a half night paranormal tour for Halloween 2008.

enough for the ghost to get to them.
