Great for families. Definitely worth the hour and half we traveled. They interacted my 6 year old son and he loved it. the lady actor at the front of the hayride was my favorite she was so funny. The name says it all a sweet Christian Godly Family. Pizza and Stromboli on the way out.
This was well worth the drive and money. The people were awesome. It was evident that they put a lot of time into it. I will definitely take the family again next year. We had a blast. I'm hard to make jump and they even got me once.
Let me just say this was the best haunted house on this side of the Mississippi! I started out nervous, scared, then in tears to overcoming my fears and laughing at the end. 10/10 experience. Staff is also so awesome. Hayride was the best. Will be back next year for sure!

Our first year was 2005 and it started as a birthday party for my two oldest sons. We put together a small haunted house in the garage for all of their friends to go through. And then we started having neighbors come up during the week bringing friends of theirs wanting to go through it and it just escalated from there. This is our 17th season and we’ve grown quite a bit since then we build different sceneries every year and change things up. We are an indoor and outdoor walk-through haunted house we are open every Friday and Saturday through October from 7 PM until midnight. Admission is $10 a person and we also have a cash app. You purchase tickets here at the gate and start your journey. We do have shirts hats zombie inflatables and concessions on-site for sale.

Hometown Hauntings: The Lady of Lone Oak

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) - For those who may casually browse real estate listings for their next dream home, they may have seen a particularly eye-catching home in Hopkinsville among those listings .

Lone Oak is a rare example of Temple Form Greek Revival architecture. It was built in 1835 on five acres of land for Judge Joseph Crockett and is considered Hopkinsville’s oldest house. The building is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Designed by New York architect Minard La Fever, the only alterations to the home were two second-story bedrooms and a modern kitchen. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and plenty of space to entertain guests, it is an ideal place for those wishing to live in an older home.

However, there is more to the story of the historic building.

In 1919, Jemmie Courtney Hickman Thompson passed away in the home. Stories and legends vary about the circumstances of her death, and it may not be confirmed that her life actually ended in the house. However, her spirit has not left the home and is said to still reside there to this day.

After Jemmie’s death, the building exchanged hands and was the site of many businesses. It saw life as a bed and breakfast and as 9 different restaurants. The last restaurant at the location closed in the 1990′s and the house was vacant for another decade. Employees of all those businesses reported paranormal activity during their time in the home.

James Coursey grew up in Elkton and pursued a career in Interior Architecture and design that took him to New York. When he retired, he returned to the area in 2006 and purchased Lone Oak. Coursey was fully aware of the legend of its ghostly inhabitant and in love with its architectural pedigree.

He has worked to restore the home to much of its former glory with the addition of modern amenities. Doing so with the presence of Jemmie strong within the home. He affectionately calls her by her middle name, Courtney.

“People don’t believe in ghosts, just have them come over and spend a couple of nights at Lone Oak and they’ll get used to it,” Coursey said.

Numerous individuals have reported sightings of Jemmie, gazing down from the upstairs windows. Those daring enough to enter the house have recounted eerie encounters such as being pushed or touched by invisible hands.

Jemmie is especially active when blonde or red-headed women enter the home.

Coursey has had three paranormal investigative teams on the property. One group said they detected another spirit in the basement that Jemmie does not allow upstairs. Coursey admits to not feeling comfortable in the basement even before he received that information from the investigators.

“The presence is here. The normal things: doors close, and lights are on that you didn’t turn on,” Coursey said. “If you’re not afraid of ghosts, there’s not much they can do.”

Even pets appear to react to the spirit.

“Courtney’s room is the room opposite upstairs over the library and dogs and cats will not go in that room. They’ll run right up to the door and then they’ll stop,” Coursey said.

While he is aware of her presence and notes her moods by the amount of activity, particularly with the home’s electricity, he has only seen the apparition once. While painting was being done in his bedroom, he had to spend the night in Courtney’s room.

“I’ve seen Courtney once in her room at about 3 o’clock in the morning,” he said. “You could see the outline of her body very clearly, but it looked like you were watching TV and seeing those little pixels.”

Most people who’ve lived in Hopkinsville for any length of time know about Lone Oak and they all know it’s haunted. This has led to some complications with the people that James has hired to work for him at the house.

“I’ve had people that have applied to work here that won’t work here because they know there’s a ghost here,” he said.

Coursey doesn’t mind living with Courtney. He says there are periods of time where there is no activity and he thinks her spirit has moved on, but she always seems to return home.

He is also connected with a network of others who live in haunted houses around the country. They share their stories and remark how similar many of the hauntings are.

“I think it’s kind of neat actually to have a ghost in the house. It doesn’t bother me at all. If you’re not scared or intimidated by ghosts, they really don’t bother you very much.”

Private tours of Lone Oak are available by appointment only for those who want to discuss the ghost, history, or architecture of the property.

Most Haunted Places in Kentucky

Kentucky is best known for horse racing, bourbon, bluegrass music and basketball, but it is also a state with a massive amount of paranormal activity. There are many locations throughout the state where very compelling evidence of the afterlife has been captured.

Let’s explore 9 of the most haunted places in Kentucky:

9 – Pope Lick Monster, Fisherville

Pope Lick Creek Bridge, Fisherville, Kentucky

The ‘Pope Lick Monster’ – also known as Goat Man has apparently been luring unsuspecting people to their deaths for as long as the locals can recall.

Depending on which story you favor this hairy, horned monster is either a survivor from a circus train wreck or a local goat farmer who tortured his goats on behalf of the devil and therefore forfeited his own soul.

He is said to mimic the voice of children calling for help to lure people onto the train tracks where they then become frozen in place as a speeding train hurtles towards them!

8 – The Gates of Hell (Grandview Cemetery), Elizabethtown

Grandview Cemetery in Elizabethtown, Kentucky

Grandview Cemetery is the official name for this graveyard, but it has also been known as Kasey’s Cemetery or the Gates of Hell!

All that remains here are the graves of those who died in the 1700s ad 1800s and the ruins of an iron and stone gate.

There are a variety of stories relating to odd occurrences here including large balls of glowing green light, shadow figures, and disembodied screams.

Some have even claimed to have car trouble when visiting the area.

7 - The Old Talbott Tavern, Bardstown BOOK NOW

The Old Talbott Tavern, Bardstown, Kentucky

The Old Talbott Tavern is actually the oldest stagecoach stop in Kentucky and today, as it always has, it offers weary travelers impeccable service along with a chance of catching a glimpse of none other than the outlaw Jesse James!

On entering The Old Talbott Tavern one thing is evident – the passage of time. Since opening in 1770, the hotel has never been closed and the building seems to have soaked up all of the energy of times gone by and the people who have taken refuge here on long journeys.

Some of the most notable guests that have spent the night include Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln, and King Louis Philippe of France! Then, of course, there is the outlaw Jesse James who has contributed to the hotel’s reputation as one of the most haunted places in Kentucky.

If you pay a visit to The Old Talbott Tavern today, you may have the chance to see the painting that hangs on the wall which is riddled with bullet holes. It is said that Jesse James was the one to shoot up that painting and that his ghost still visits the inn from time to time.

However, he is certainly not the only spirit at work here! There is also a mysterious female spirit who makes regular appearances and guests have reported a variety of other unexplained events including items moving on their own and items vanishing only to turn up elsewhere in the hotel.

Shadows are seen darting around and doors open and close by themselves.

There have also been reports of phantom footsteps and of furniture jumping up and down for no apparent reason!

6 - The Mammoth Caves, Mammoth Cave National Park

Mammoth Caves in Mammoth Caves National Park in Kentucky

The Mammoth Caves are believed to be more than 4000 years old. It is thought that Native Americans mined the cave walls for minerals and then buried their dead inside. It is now rumored to be haunted, with visitors hearing disembodied cries and having rocks thrown at them!

5 - The Seelbach Hilton, Louisville BOOK NOW

The Seelbach Hilton Hotel in downtown Louisville, Kentucky

The Seelbach Hilton in Louisville is very much considered to be the premier hotel in all of Kentucky. It has also earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. However, we are interested in this particular hotel for one of its other accolades – as one of the most haunted places in Kentucky thanks to the resident spook known as the lady in blue.

The Seelbach Hotel opened in 1905 and over the years it has hosted a number of historical figures. The hotel was built by immigrants Otto and Louis Seelbach who dreamed of creating a grand European hotel in the United States.

With its French Renaissance design, the hotel quickly became one of the finest in America. It was sold to Abraham M Liebling in 1925 before being sold a year later to Eppley Hotel Company. For a short time it was under the Sheraton Hotels banner and today it is part of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand.

You will likely hear many different accounts of the lady in blue and how she came to be at the hotel, but all of the accounts agree that she is the spirit of Ms. Patricia Wilson. In 1936 she had moved to Louisville from her native Oklahoma and had recently separated from her husband. The pair wanted to try and patch things up and so they arranged a meeting at the Seelbach.

Unfortunately, the husband never made it to the hotel as he was killed in a car accident on his way there. Ms. Wilson was understandably devastated and not long afterward her body was discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft in the hotel.

Opinion remains split on whether this was a suicide or simply a tragic accident. Since then her apparition has been spotted up on the eighth floor and also on the mezzanine level.

Everyone who sees her agrees that she is dressed in blue and has long dark hair.

Poor Ms. Wilson is not the only spirit that guests have encountered at the Seelbach Hotel. Other reports of paranormal activity include disembodied voices, unexplained footsteps, cold spots, and the scent of lingering perfume.

One couple who were spending their honeymoon at the Seelbach says that they woke to find a man standing at the window and when the light was turned on he vanished.

Others have reported seeing a woman in rags in a mirror down in the cafe area.

4 - The Louisville Palace Theater, Louisville

The Louisville Palace Theatre in Louisville, Kentucky

The Louisville Palace Theater opened in 1928, originally known as Lowes Theatre. Staff, visitors, and actors alike have all claimed to see a faceless woman in forties attire and a man in thirties clothing.

There have also been reports of a child giggling in an empty bathroom and some say that a projection operator who had a heart attack on the job has never clocked off!

3 - Perryville Battlefield, Perryville

Perryville Battlefield in Perryville, Kentucky

The biggest Civil War battle that Kentucky has ever seen happened at Perryville on October 8, 1862. It is estimated that 7600 people were killed or wounded.

The Confederate victims were left to rot right there on the battlefield which is likely why this has become one of the most haunted places in Kentucky.

2 - Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Louisville

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Louisville, Kentucky

There is something special about all old abandoned asylums and sanatorium’s but some are just creepier than others and that certainly applies to Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville.

Without any doubt, this building can be counted among the most haunted places in Kentucky if not the entire United States!

Waverly Hills was officially opened in July of 1910 and over the next 50 years, it housed thousands of patients suffering from tuberculosis. The sanatorium eventually closed its doors in 1962 when advances in medication brought new drug treatments that could cure tuberculosis so that it was no longer a death sentence.

The hospital was renovated and reopened as Wood Haven Medical Services. However, by 1980 that too had closed following claims of patient neglect and abuse – not that the tuberculosis treatments used prior to that were any less inhumane.

There is no exact figure for the number of deaths that have occurred in Waverly Hills, but the best estimates put the number at well over 6000.

There are many ghosts that walk the halls of Waverly Hills and shadow figures, disembodied screams and agonizing moaning are all very normal.

We could never mention every spirit that resides here, so instead let’s summarize some of the hot spots of paranormal activity. Perhaps the most famous is the so-called Death Tunnel.

This underground tunnel runs from the main building to the bottom of the hill and it was used to remove corpses so as not to disturb other patients.

Room 502 is said to be where a pregnant nurse committed suicide after the doctor who fathered the child rejected her. Her spirit is said to be eternally tied to the room.

Finally, there is the ghost of a little boy called Timmy who died in Waverly Hills at the age of 6 or 7. He likes to play and investigators often bring balls and toys for him to play with!

1 - Bobby Mackey's Music World, Wilder

Bobby Mackey's Music World in Wilder, Kentucky

Bobby Mackey’s Music World is not only one of the most haunted places in Kentucky, but possibly one of the most haunted locations in the entire world!

Anyone with an interest in the paranormal is sure to have heard of this nightclub and it has featured on pretty much all of the big paranormal television programs!

Over the years, this place has been dubbed a gateway to hell and the mere mention of it is enough to send a chill up the spine of many a paranormal investigator.

Poltergeist activity is the norm in America’s most haunted nightclub so much so that there is even a sign inside stating that management cannot take responsibility for any paranormal attack on the premises.

Several visitors have signed sworn affidavits detailing their terrifying experiences. Bobby Mackey’s is known for its darker paranormal side, but not all of the spirits here are malicious.

One of them is the spirit of a dancer named Johanna who performed at the club and died in the club. She had been seen several times ‘performing’ on stage with the live music acts and owner Bob Mackey has also written a song about her – despite the fact that he claims not to believe in ghosts!

However, it is the darker entities that get most of the attention at Bobby Mackey’s Music World. Patrons have been touched, scratched and even possessed while in the building.

A former caretaker of the building named Carl was reportedly exorcised in the bar and following his death, his distinctive voice has been heard via EVP. There is a well in the basement which is said to be a portal to hell and many claim that demons reside in this bar!

It all seems to stem from the fact that not only was the building once an abattoir, but it was also the site where a woman’s skull was found detached from her body.

A grisly murder took place several kilometers away from where a pregnant woman was beheaded and her head was allegedly disposed of down the well.
