Spooks and Legends of Old Henderson Walking Tour

Boy, does downtown Henderson have a rich haunted lore!
Our in-house ghost detective, Tamara, has been on the hunt for new legends and lore to add to this year's Spooks and Legends of Old Henderson Walking Tour, and she has found some great ones!

And though we'd love to share those stories with you now... well, you'll just have to wait till October 16!

On that afternoon join us as we weave these haunted tales with historical facts about Henderson, Ky., on a guided walking tour through the historic district! We might even have a few extra surprises in store!

There will also be free refreshments available before and after each tour. Tours are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on October 16, and best of all they're FREE. What a great way to celebrate the bewitching season with your older children. They'll be so entertained, they won't even realize they spent the afternoon learning about local history! Parental guidance is suggested, as some stories contain mild violence.

The tours leave from the Community Room, which is located at 101 N. Water St. in downtown Henderson, Ky.
