Russellville, Ky - The Sexton House

This house shares ground with a neighboring cemetery, and thus has some tie to the graveyard. Several years ago a girl was struck by lightning in the tower. On stormy nights her shadow appears inside the window when the lightning shines against it. Because it drew so many onlookers over the years the windows were painted over. But that did not stop people from coming. Nor did it stop the girl’s ghost from appearing inside the window on stormy nights.

Richmond, KY - Four Mile Bridge

There was a 16 year old girl raped and murdered near the Four Mile bridge, they call her little Egypt, if you go to the bridge on a rainy night right before dark call her name three times crack the two front windows she will come into the car as a puff of wind, and ride with you to see if you are the people that killed her, if not she will get out. They say if you don't crack the windows she can't get out and she will wreck the car.

She was killed on the old bridge and thrown over yes different people experience different things but go at night late stop on bridge open passenger door of your car wait ,if she comes your seat will sink you can see it close the door and drive on four mile but if you stop open door the seat will rise as if someone unseen is getting out your fine but drive past the spot where the old pillars were and you will experience problems some have wrecked been bitten scratched try it but the pillars were at the entrance to their farm the home sat back off the road was torn down ten years or so ago now there's five or six houses on the land on the right driveway entrance pillars had Egypt on them and was the family name they bulldozed them when they were clearing to build.

Richmond, KY - Keene Hall 16th Floor

An apparition haunts the 16th floor of Keene hall at Eastern Kentucky University. A student in his early twenties, late teens, committed suicide from the top floor of the University's dorm hall over a distraught fight with his girlfriend. Feelings of being watched, girls would wake up in the middle of the night and see a man in the room, then they would look twice then nothing was there, weird sounds. Very creepy if you're up there alone.

Richmond, KY - White Hall Mansion

The Civil War emancipationist, Cassius M. Clay, one of his daughters, one of his sons, and a black servant, 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.

Salyersville, KY - Frozen

Many people go to a place called frozen. Ghosts have been seen in the halls of this old abandoned school and mental institution. It has been said that many years ago children drowned in the cellar of this old school. Several people say that they have heard cries of young children and have even seen them. It has been said that you will see and hear terrifying things.

It used to be a school. You can go there and feel like you are being watched, the laughter of little kids and in the third building you can feel heat as you go up the stairs to the punishment rooms. Some have even seen red glowing eyes in the upstairs. There is also what seems to be a small chapel that has an above ground basement that sits out in a field. The basement is filled with black mud like substance. If viewed from above it has a whirlpool design to it.

Bradfordsville, KY - The Bradford House

Then the Bradford family came in 1803 and decided to start a grist mill thereby getting the name Bradford's Mill to replace Centerville because the first settlers thought that the point the two rivers joined was the center of the state of Kentucky.
In 1836 Dr. Rose and a group petitioned the state to let Bradfordsville become a city incorporated. The state agreed in General Assembly to this in January 30, 1836, Dr. Rose is buried in a cemetery in Fairview Court of Bradfordsville--his son Uriah became an envoy for President Teddy Roosevelt to Brussells and later established the Rose Law Firm that Hilary Rodham Clinton worked for in Little Rock Arkansas. A bust of Uriah is in Statuary Hall of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C.
The house has been deserted for at least a hundred years, however at night a piano can be heard playing, and sometimes you can hear a baby cry.

Bradfordsville, KY - George Edelen Home Place

The house was moved from Old Lick Creek after a family died of cholera in the 1800's. The house had figurines that swayed more than 45 degrees off their setting, sounds of walking throughout the house, a three pound knocking was heard every night for 30 minutes beginning at 7:30 p.m. Sounds of clearing the throat from someone who was not there. Sounds of mirrors falling and crashing and no evidence of such happenings.

Benton, KY - The Glowing Tombstone

The story goes that an old man and woman lived in a house near this cemetery and a cult was doing some funny business in a nearby barn one night. The old man did not return from checking out the strange happenings so the old woman went down to check on him and found him hung. The barn is still there. The house the old couple lived in is gone now, but a new house was trying to be built by a new couple and mysteriously fell down on the first try. When the tombstone is glowing the old man is inside the old barn waiting on the cult members who killed him to come back so he can extract his revenge.
