West St. Catherine Neighborhood Association


Nov 14, 2007

On the weekend before Halloween, Old Louisville was filled with spirits from the past when the West St Catherine Street Neighborhood Association hosted the 4th Annual Victorian Ghost Walk. According to Rhonda Williams, president of the association, hundreds of visitors flocked to the popular yearly event that took place on October 26, 27 & 28. "It's a great way to celebrate the Halloween season and learn about the haunted history in our wonderful Victorian neighborhood," she said. "Tour leaders in colorful period attire guided groups on a two-hour jaunt through the gas-lit streets and walkways, and various phantoms and ghostly characters along the way told their stories. Participants also had the opportunity to enter some of the area's supposedly haunted homes, something that is always especially popular." This year's tour took people inside Susan Shearer's and Linda Gregory's home on Sixth Street, Jeff Perry's famed Pink Palace and Herb and Gayle Warren's Inn at Central Park, where Susan Coleman regaled the crowds with the sad tale of Annie Whipple. Other ghosts who returned from the netherworld for the 2007 ghost walk included the Widow Hoag, Lady Ross and the Stick Witch, just to name a few. Plans are already underway for next year's tour, which will mark the fifth anniversary of this beloved neighborhood event, so mark your calendars now. The 5th Annual Victorian Ghost Walk will take place on Friday, October 24, Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26 of 2008. Groups will meet in front of the Conrad-Caldwell House at 1402 St James Court and will depart every 15 minutes from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20 when purchased in advance. Call 635-5244 for more information.
