“Tales of murder, betrayal, grief and the supernatural”
are the subject of the tours, which will be Fridays and Saturdays.
Roughly divided between confirmed history and reports of the paranormal,
the Kentuckiana Historical Haunted Tours offers a titillating peek into Jeffersonville’s rich and bloody past.
The city was a major player
in the Underground Railroad
and a center of activity for soldiers
and civilians during the Civil War.
and illegal medical procedures
are featured in the city’s alleged hauntings as well.
The $20 tour, “Tales of murder, betrayal, grief, and the supernatural,” will depart from the Vintage Fire Museum at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through October.
It is led by the Institute for the Study of Religious and Anomalous Experience
and its field investigative unit, the Association for the Study of Anomalous Field Phenomena.
Proceeds from the tours are shared with the fire museum and the Clark County Historical Society,
whose director, Jeanne Burke, helped research the stories.
