Visit These 12 Creepy Ghost Towns In Kentucky At Your Own Risk

When people think about ghost towns, the west usually comes to mind, but Kentucky has a few creepy ghost towns of its own. These areas were all once filled with the hustle and bustle of human life. Now the only thing that’s bustling is the leaves when the wind blows, some ripples on the water, or a few lonely people. For the most part, the towns themselves are either gone, or almost abandoned completely.

These 12 Kentucky Ghost towns get a lot less attention then they deserve:

Each of these ghost towns was once an important part of Kentucky’s history. Some can still be visited, especially those turned into historic museums or over night stays. These towns, or the remnants thereof, make an interesting stop on a bucket list. Each is nestled in some beautiful country. If you have visited a Bluegrass State Ghost Town, please share what it was like in the comments below.

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
