Welcome to My Old Kentucky Ghosts. On this web site we will explore the "Dark and Bloody Ground"-a place where a rich history has created many superstitions and legends of death and ghosts that coexist with the living. At Octagon Hall, in the Southern Kentucky town of Franklin, angry ghosts of the Civil War have been heard walking the house at night. In Russellville, a window of the Sexton's house has been painted over to cover the image of a girl who was struck by lightning after cursing because she could not go out on a date. Jesse James was a friend and cousin of the jailer in Bardstown, and many have claimed to see his ghost laughing in good spirits at a tavern beside the jail.
One of the hauntingly beautiful antebellum homes that dot the Southern Kentucky landscape. I don't know the history of this home, so I can't say for sure if this one is actually haunted. There are many of these antebellum homes in Kentucky, some well maintained, some in need of someone to come along and restore them.
