Freddie Krueger will be joining the Bardstown Ghost Trek.
Scott Kindred, costumer of Freddie Krueger and performer at the ScareFest, will honor the Bardstown Ghost Trek with his appearance on some weekends during our 2020 season. He will be available for photo ops as well. Please join us for a great time during the Bardstown Ghost Trek. I will make announcements on the weekends that Freddie will appear so you don't miss him.
Bardstown Ghost Trek - 23 Years!
Every Saturday night - June 6 - October 31, 2020
Join us as we go on a ghost hunt, walk, and history tour down the shadowy streets of old historic Bardstown and hear about its ghostly activity from Certified Ghost Hunter, Patti Starr. This is the 23rd year of the Bardstown Ghost Trek.
The ghost hunt, walk, and history tour starts outside the Talbott Tavern. You may bring your cameras, audio recorders and camcorder if you wish to take part in collecting evidence of the very active spirits who love being photographed on the tour.
During the guided tour you'll hear real stories involving true experiences of people witnessing ghostly activity that is currently happening in the locations on the trek. Patti also brings her i-Pad where she shows pictures of ghost apparitions that have been captured while walking on the tour.
First and foremost, my heart goes out to anyone who has been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly.
Together, we are going through some difficult times. This corona virus pandemic is affecting all our families, businesses, communities, and our precious way of life. At this time, I wanted to reach out to each of you with an update on how I plan to continue my ghost walks by following the rules for crowd gatherings.
At this time, the number of participants has dropped to 10 walkers per tour. I will need to have at least 10 walkers to have the Bardstown Ghost Trek so reserve your spot soon.
Age group is 7 and above.
Please wear a mask, (gloves optional).
We will all stand 6 feet apart per group, not per person. (I have a portable speaker that projects my voice).
Please pay with cash. I will not touch your dollars but will open a plastic bag for you to drop your admission into the bag. This will eliminate close and direct contact that a credit card would create.
Because of the controlled numbers of the group you will need to text how many are in your group to make sure we do not go over the limit … (859) 699-1800. I will respond and add you to the reservation list and you can pay on arrival.
As we go into the upcoming stages, the numbers to congregate will increase and an update will follow.
Thank you for your participating, understanding, and agreeing to this guideline for all of us to safely enjoy getting out with friends and family.
The first stop on the Ghost Trek is the Talbott Tavern. After a brief description of history we will go inside the tavern and proceed to the museum where Jesse James stayed during his visits to Bardstown. Sometime we are lucky enough to get a recording of Jesse answering a question. You will also see photos of an apparition of Jesse that was taken by previous walkers. Then we will gather in one of the most haunted rooms of the Talbott Tavern where we will continue taking photos or videos while standing in the mist of the ghostly activity. (Entering the Tavern may or may not be possible depending on the current events at the time of the tour.)
From the Talbott Tavern we will go to the Jailer's Inn and stand out front while listening to the latest ghostly sightings. The jail was in operation from 1819 until 1987 and during that time it was the oldest jail west of the Allegany’s. The Travel Channel named the Jailer's Inn as one of the 10 most haunted places in America.
Next, on our ghostly route, is the Pioneer cemetery. After hearing the history and about the ghostly sightings you will be able to enter the cemetery to take pictures and if you have a recording devise you can try your hand at capturing EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena).
