The Most Terrifying Ghost Story To Ever Come Out Of Kentucky Is Truly Chilling
Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, KY may be one of the most well-known haunted places in the state, but have you ever heard of Bobby Mackey’s Music World? Located in Wilder, KY, just on the other side of the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Bobby Mackey’s is known as “the most haunted nightclub in the United States.” This bar may be home to a fun honky-tonk atmosphere with live music, but it also might have some of the most terrifying ghost stories that even rival Waverly Hills.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
