The Mysterious Kentucky Town That’s Home To More Ghosts Than People

Kentucky is home to many ghost stories, several of which stem from historic events. Whether you believe in these haunted tales or not, it makes sense that if ghosts were to be found anywhere, it would be in a place that has seen incredible tragedy. Located southwest of Lexington, the small town of Perryville is a historic hidden gem that is basically a living museum. With the Perryville Battlefield from the Civil War close by and many historic homes and buildings, it’s no wonder that this mysterious Kentucky town is home to more ghosts than (living) people.
