Walk With the Ghosts October 17 – 19

Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, there’s nothing like a nighttime stroll through Old Louisville. The annual Victorian ghost walk may not include paranormal entities, but you will get a good look at some of the most beautiful architecture and gardens you’ll find anywhere in the city.

Walking With Ghosts

The walk is a pleasant two-hour stroll that’s scheduled for 7 pm to 9 pm every night on October 17, 18 and 19. You’ll see more than architecture while you’re walking through Old Louisville. Many actors also participate to put on an amazing show during the event. The outdoor play shows you some of the history that’s unique to this community. Every 15 minutes, a new group will be guided through the neighborhood to hear storytellers in full costume. They’ll tell you some of the ghostly tales of the community, and you’ll heart about Old Louisville’s past. The tour takes about 90 minutes.

 Alfred Victor Dupont, Jennie Bowman, the Stick Witch and Annie Whipple will come back to life for the event. The gas lighting creates the perfect atmosphere, and it allows you to view the beautiful Victorian architecture the way it was meant to be seen. Tickets cost $25 per person.

The walk begins at 1340 South Fourth Street, right in the heart of beautiful Old Louisville at Central Park. This area is known for foot traffic. You’ll see students on their way to class, dog walkers out enjoying the scenery, and professionals hurrying toward downtown.

The ghost tour is all about the history of Old Louisville, but this is a popular community even in today’s modern times. Today, this Louisville neighborhood is one of the city’s most diverse. It’s filled with beautiful trees and gardens, and yet it’s within walking distance of some of downtown Louisville’s best attractions.
