Victorian Ghost Walk returns to Old Louisville
City's most famous legends and ghost stories to come alive
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 3, 2017) – The city’s most haunted neighborhood comes alive with “spirit activity” this month when the Victorian Ghost Walk returns to Old Louisville. Now in its 11th year, this Halloween event showcases the city’s most famous legends and ghost stories. The walk will take place on Thursday., Oct. 19, Friday, Oct. 20, Saturday, Oct. 21 and Sunday, October 22, with tours departing every half hour starting at 6 p.m. Tours last about two hours and cover about 10 blocks.
Described as a “theatrical experience beyond the grave,” the Victorian Ghost Walk brings to life the haunted past in one of the nation’s premier historic neighborhood. This year’s walk will see participants shepherded through the streets of Old Louisville as costumed interpreters tell their tales of phantom woe. Tour-goers will also see the interiors of several different residences that are supposedly haunted. Among the real-life individuals to be resurrected will be Jennie Bowman, a young maid murdered in 1887, and Lucinda, an unhinged Louisville woman who made national headlines in 1885 when she proclaimed herself “Queen of America.” The spirit of the womanizing Alfred Victor Dupont and Louisville’s famous “Witches’ Tree” will also be featured.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at www.louisvillehistorictours.com. Tours start and end at 1212 South Fourth Street (Smokey’s Bean Coffee Shop). For more information, call 502.718.2764 or visit The Victorian Ghost Walk on Facebook.
