15 Haunted Places In Kentucky That Are Truly Chilling
We all heard scary stories growing up, causing most of us to fear things that went bump in the night. However, in many cases, these frightening tales were just stories. Usually, our elders usually didn’t want to tell us about “real” ghosts, else we’d never sleep in our own beds. Fortunately for you, there are many haunted places in Kentucky that just might push you out of your comfort zone. Some remain skeptical that spirits, ghosts, and other commonplace pieces of lore walk the earth. However, some of these Kentucky places have chalked up some pretty indisputable proof. These 15 destinations have had so many ghost sightings that it is difficult to ignore the creepy possibilities:

What are the creepiest cemeteries in Kentucky?
Eastern Cemetery in Louisville has a super spooky history that dates back to the 1840s, and it certainly has an unforgettable atmosphere. Some other creepy cemeteries in Kentucky include Burtonville Cemetery, East Fork Cemetery, and Cave Hill Cemetery.
What is the most haunted place in Kentucky?
Waverly Hills Sanatorium is arguably the most haunted spot in Kentucky. Aiming to treat the “White Plague,” something we know today as tuberculosis, this hospital was sadly the end of the road for many sick men, women, and children.
Are there any ghost towns in Kentucky?
Can’t get enough of spooky spots in Kentucky? Swing by ghost towns like Lawton Mushroom Mine and Jonkan for a walk through time.
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.
