Your Itinerary

Old Louisville

Recommended by The New York Times, Louisville Historic Tours has specialized in guided walks through "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood" since 2004. Once home to bourbon barons, racetrack royalty, and titans of tobacco, this transitional neighborhood has a wealth of ghostly lore that attracts supernatural buffs from all around the world. Centered around Olmsted-designed Central Park and the charming residential enclave of St. James Court, this 40-square block historic district is jam-packed with Gilded Age grandeur and hundreds of spooky Victorian mansions. Best-selling author David Dominé loves showing off the neighborhood and sharing stories about his favorite allegedly haunted houses. Come and see what all the buzz is about! IMPORTANT NOTE: On our tours, you might see things you would see in any larger city across the US; this includes homeless people, panhandlers, or others who do not look like you. If you do not like a diverse neighborhood, this is not the tour for you.

The Filson Historical Society

(Pass by)

Completed in 1905, the Ferguson Mansion only saw one family reside there in its intended capacity. In the 1920s, it became a well-known funeral home and remained as such until the 1980s, when "The Filson" moved its headquarters there. Contact their front desk to find out how to get inside.

Conrad-Caldwell House Museum (Conrad's Castle)

Constructed in the 1890s, "Conrad's Castle" is an impressive limestone Richardsonian Romanesque mansion the typifies Kentucky's Gilded Age. If you sign up for one of their tours (highly recommended!), be forewarned: you might encounter a ghost - or five.

Admission Not Included

Central Park

Designed by the same genius behind New York City's famous Central Park, this 14-acre green space is the breathing heart of Old Louisville. At night, it can be kind of spooky.

The Witches' Tree

Hear the story of why this tree is so gnarly and twisted, and why people adorn it with trinkets, beads, and good luck charms!

It was amazing. I would totally go back and do it again! Our tour guide was easy to understand, and they really cared about it.


Lovely. We truly enjoyed this. Saw a beautiful area of town we would never have seen and heard some wonderful stories. Great way to spend an evening


Fun interesting experience , lots of beautiful buildings to see and stories to hear ! Good for family's


Our guide Brenda was very knowledgeable and fun. She was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. Very enjoyable. Definitely will recommend.


Great tour. Quinton was fantastic and full of great, thorough information. We had an excellent time! I would highly recommend.


Loved it! It's a must see. The history of the Mansion is interesting. The detail of the wood is amazing. Recommend highly to anyone to see.


The most memorable part of the tour was learning about “Murder House”! You won’t know if you don’t go!


We enjoyed walking through the neighborhood and seeing a different part of Louisville, seeing the architecture of the old, beautiful homes. The ghost stories were more like legends and not very scary, but the tour gave us something to do and was definitely something different.


Loved all the stories plus the ghost book recommendation. I also have a new episode of the first 48 to watch :)


Very nice tour. Knowledgeable and energetic host. Only suggestion would be to shorten a few stories and use that time to discuss the history of the structures a little more. With that said, it is a ghost tour so don’t over rotate.
