Old University of Louisville Medical School

The Old University of Louisville Medical School is 115 years old. Is it any wonder that ghosts are haunting this old medical institution?

JCC Fireplace

JCC Fireplace

There is an inscription over the fireplace at the main building on the JCC campus in downtown Louisville. That inscription reads: James Rankin Barret in loving memory of his wife Lucy Stites Barret erected this building. Is James' wife Lucy still earthbound by this loving tribute? Does she return to this special location because of the love she once knew here? Will it be possible to glimpse this ghostly figure for yourself? Or does Lucy hide behind that invisible curtain of time, watching us and wondering why we were intruding in her favorite place.

Brennan House Cradle

Brennen House Cradle

Upstairs in a simple nursery is a cradle that belonged to baby Napoleon Brennan, the youngest of the Brennan family. The nursery is adjacent to the master bedroom that was shared by Mr. and Mrs. Brennan. A guide had a startling experience late one afternoon concerning this cradle. An experience he hasn't forgotten. On the tour, you'll find out more about the cold, ghostly hands that tend to 'rock' the cradle!

Brennan House

The Brennan House is a three story Victorian home built in 1868 on 5th Street. In 1884, the Brennans moved to Louisville and paid $12,000 for the property. Mr. and Mrs. Brennan had eight children, and some of the children lived their entire lives in this home. Apparently, the family cared deeply for this property in life, and even in death have refused to leave. Apparitions have made their presence known in several rooms of the house, such as the first floor parlor, the main hallway, in the medical office of Dr. John, and on the third floor children's play room. On the tour, you can have the opportunity to look at the mansion where the past is so perfectly preserved, and wonder for yourself, if somehow the Brennans are watching you.

Belle of Louisville

The Belle of Louisville

The steamboat that Louisvillians know as the Belle of Louisville wasn't always the delightful excursion boat that we associate with today. Before she became the Belle this historic steamboat had other uses and other names. It has a long history, going back to construction in 1914, when it was named the Idelwild. In 1948, the name was changed to the Avalon, upon the untimely death of Captain Winters who made that request upon his deathbed. In 1963, the name was changed to the Belle of Louisville. Today, there are those who wonder if Captain Winters ever left the steamboat. They wonder if he haunts the Belle of Louisville, thinking it is still his beloved Avalon. The Belle of Louisville disclaims all reports of paranormal activity, but those of us who have had experiences believe otherwise. We like going back to see who or what might join us on another visit to The Belle.
