Bardstown Ghost Trek - 21 Years!

Every Saturday night - June 2 - October 27, 2018

Join us as we go on a ghost hunt, walk, and history tour down the shadowy streets of old historic Bardstown and hear about its ghostly activity from Certified Ghost Hunter, Patti Starr. This is the 20th year of the Bardstown Ghost Trek.

The ghost hunt, walk, and history tour starts outside the Talbott Tavern where you will receive instructions of what to do on the ghost hunt as we approach the haunted locations.  Bring your cameras, audio recorders and camcorder if you wish to take part in collecting evidence of the very active spirits who love being photographed on the tour. During the guided walking ghost hunt walking tour you'll hear real stories involving true experiences of people witnessing ghostly activity that is currently happening in the locations on the trek.

Talbott Tavern

The first stop on the Ghost Trek is the Talbott Tavern. After a brief description of history we will go inside the tavern and proceed to the museum where Jesse James stayed during his visits to Bardstown. Sometime we are lucky enough to get a recording of Jesse answering a question. You will also see a photo of an apparition of Jesse that was taken by one of the previous walkers. Then we will gather in one of the most haunted rooms of the Talbott Tavern where we will continue taking photos or videos while standing in the mist of the ghostly activity. (Entering the Tavern may or may not be possible depending on the current events at the time of the tour.)

Jailers Inn

From the Talbott Tavern we will go to the Jailer's Inn and stand out front while listening to the latest ghostly sightings. The jail was in operation from 1819 until 1987 and during that time it was the oldest jail west of the Allegany’s. The Travel Channel named the Jailer's Inn as one of the 10 most haunted places in America.

Pioneer Cemetery

Next, on our ghostly route, is the Pioneer cemetery. After hearing the history and about the ghostly sightings you will be able to enter the cemetery to take pictures and if you have a recording devise you can try your hand at capturing EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena).
