Mt. Sterling, Ky - Stepstone Church

In an abandoned church on Stepstone. The church still stands but the inside of the church was gutted by a fire long ago. A few men hung 4 teenage girls on a cross in the loft and set fire to the church. If you go at night, it is said you can hear them laugh, cry and see the shadows of them flying around. It is also known that if you do something to upset the girls, you will find hear them scream in rage. The church is gone, but the grounds are still there.

Mt. Sterling, KY - Old Windsor Nursing Home

The old Windsor nursing home is the old nursing home that is abandoned now. The story is that if you go up there late at night, you can peek in the windows and see the old wheelchairs rolling around. You can here moaning and screaming. This nursing home was shut down in the 80's because they had a large amount of patients dying and found out it was abuse. So their lost souls roam the halls.

Bardstown, KY - The Old Talbott Tavern

The old Talbott Tavern was built in 1779, it was once an old stagecoach stop and Pony Express hub that provided food and shelter. Recent guest and staff have reported ghostly activity. After the fire in 1998, which destroyed the roof and most of the second floor underground tunnels, secret rooms, and stairs going nowhere have added to the mystery. The Talbott did not reopen until 1999, after heavy renovations.
The Daniel Boone room was again, according to the staff, the room the most reports came from. Supposedly if someone sits in the large chair in the corner of the room, whatever is in the room with you doesn't like it too much. The Inn keeper's exact words were "he doesn't like it when you sit in his chair".
The main landing on the second floor also had it's own ghostly tale. One of the women at the front desk told us the story of a man whom had been murdered upstairs and now his spirit tries to transform into different objects in the room, a claim that I had never heard before of any entity. Pretty neat!

Owenton, KY - Perry Park

Here there is a pre civil war plantation that burnt down and killed 2 kids and their nanny. It was rebuilt and later turned into a private country club in 1967. The house was made into the restaurant and the rooms upstairs were rented out (to live in) then redone into a bed and breakfast (just for members guests). If you listen hard you can always hear little kids screaming and running footsteps all around. Doors won’t unlock and open or sometimes they won’t open even if unlocked. The nanny keeps quiet but every once in a while someone will get the privilege to see her full body in big windows that start at your nose. Since then the country club has been turned into a resort where they have built a hotel and made the golf course public. The ghosts do not like this, the fire alarms go off in the middle of the night for no reason and even after being reset will go off again. Curtains shut themselves and in the kitchen pots and pans will bang together and the doors will shut and lock themselves. The lights have dimmers and at night employees have said after turning off the switch and the lights on high they will come in the next morning and the lights will be switched on and on low dim.

Hardburly, KY - Coal Springs

Hardburly is an old mining camp in Kentucky. It has legends of hauntings. One is Coal Spring, a stretch of road that lines Jake Branch Stream. It's here they say you can hear a child scream, with no one there. The story is a boy drowned in flood waters there. He still screams. In 1970's a guy was chased by a unseen thing. Faster he ran it ran, just behind him. He stopped to catch his breath it was heard gasping for air also. After he got up a bank he did not hear it any more.
