Three years in a row, LGHS presented the Pleasure Ridge Park Fire Department a check in the amount of $10,000 for the Crusade for Children. Besides helping with these great causes, LGHS has also spent the last few years adopting needy children or their families during the Christmas season by providing them with toys, clothing, and monetary assistance. Sometimes, when families are in need we reach out to them with clothing, food, or other assistance in order during the Christmas season by providing them with toys, clothing, to get them through the roughest times. The Louisville Ghost Hunters Society does more than just look for things that go "bump" to get them through the roughest times. The Louisville Ghost Hunters in the night, we offer a helping hand to our community so that any "bump" is crossed over a bit easier.
Members are asked to contribute what they can in some cases and in every instance we have tried to bring a small bit of happiness to those less fortunate during a difficult time of the year. Many LGHS members, most of whom hold full time jobs, have devoted countless hours of their time in supporting and insuring that these worthy causes receive the recognition and help they so richly deserve. Striving to make their community a better place, the Louisville Ghost Hunters Society is proud to lend a hand to those in need and will continue to do so in the future.
When Philip Adrian Booth, Christopher Saint Booth, and Shane Dax Taylor started filming their movie “The Death Tunnel,” at Waverly Hills Sanatorium - they didn’t know what they would run into. Strange EVP’s, ghostly figures, and other unexplained phenomena be- gan to emerge from the audio and film taken during the grueling shoot, and they needed someone to come in and help make sense of it all. Keith Age, Founder of The Louisville Ghost Hunters Society was that man. Keith, along with Members of the LGHS were able to assist both Philip and Chris on the investigative data recorded in Waverly Hills Sanatorium, and opened a whole new chapter in what would become a horror film (The Death Tun- nel,) that would also spawn a documentary called “Spooked: The Ghosts of Waverly Hills Sanatorium.” Simply put, there was too much real evidence of paranormal phenomena to not warrant the documentary, which Keith Age so graciously hosts.
Children Of The Grave
Produced and Directed by Philip Adrian Booth and Christopher Saint Booth (The Booth Brothers) DVD Release Date: October 15, 2007
This the highly-anticipated follow-up to the Booth Brothers 2006 documentary Spooked: The Ghosts of Waverly Hills Sanatorium. This haunted Indie film is one of the finest that I have seen in many years. And so like its predecessor this film delivers more non-stop chills from the very first frame. Many thought the Booth's could not top Spooked The Ghosts Of Waverly Hills Sanatorium their first paranormal documentary outing, but in truth they have surely surpassed it. Many herald The Booths work as a new breed of great paranormal TV to explore.
The Booth's unique camera perspective and fantastic direction, editing and score are part of the haunted magical mind's eye that they possess collectively. It is "The Must See" of all that is haunted! More then just a cut above the rest it sets a new standard that many will find hard to reach.
This movie is now what I would call a Paranormal Classic Indie Film!
Starring many Paranormal Legends of today: The great prolific ghost and haunted Writer Troy Taylor, demonologist extraordinaré John Zaffis Nephew to Ed and Lorriane Warrens. And the ever lovely and learned writer Rosemary Ellen Guiley . Paranormal Task Force lead investigator Greg Myers. Myers tops several list this year at hauntedamericatours.com. The Big Ghostman himself, as he is often called - Steven LaChance, and LGHS's Keith Age.
Haunted Covington, Kentucky - real ghosts and hauntings
Covington boasts not only the most haunted Cemetery in the State. In 1814, John Gano, Richard Gano, and Thomas Carneal purchased 150 acres (0.6 km2) on the west side of the Licking River at its confluence with the Ohio River, referred to as "the Point," from Thomas Kennedy for $50,000. The men named their new riverfront enterprise the "Covington Company," in honor of their friend, General Leonard Covington, an American officer who once trained troops in the area and was killed in the War of 1812.
The investors prepared a plot for the new city that was approximately five blocks wide by five blocks deep. The platted streets lined up with the streets of Cincinnati across the Ohio River, symbolically tying the future of the fledging city to its larger neighbor to the north. The first five streets, running north to south, were named for Kentucky's first five governors: Shelby, Garrard, Greenup, Scott, and Madison. all of which are said by many locals to be the most haunted Street and location in the City also. I n February 1815, the Kentucky General Assembly incorporated the land as the town of Covington.
This population resided not only within the established boundaries of the city but outside, causing the city to undertake its first annexation, which extended the city to Main Street to the west and 12th Street to the south. This annexation brought the neighborhoods now known as Mutter Gottes and Mainstrasse.
Fueled in part by the European revolutions of the mid-1800s, many Europeans, particularly Germans, immigrated to Covington. they also brought their ghosts and tales of the undead with them as well as superstitions. At this time, the primary commercial district and gathering place was on Main Street near Sixth Street, the area now known as "Mainstrasse." Sixth Street was laid out with a wide width that allowed the city, in 1861, to establish a public market in the center of the street with traffic lanes on either side. The nearby Mutter Gottes Kirche (Mother of God Church), built in 1871, is said to be ahaunted by a evil polterghiest.
The original location of the old Covington-Cincinnati Suspension Bridge is said to be very haunted. Located between Covington and Cincinnati. Built by John A. Roebling, construction started in 1856. Work on the bridge continued for two years before the effects of the 1857 depression brought construction to a halt. Work on the bridge resumed in 1863 but once again was delayed because of the Civil War. The bridge formally opened on January 1, 1867, promoting further commerce between Kentucky and Ohio.
In part because of depressions of 1873 and 1893, commercial construction was not significant in Covington during the latter part of the 19th century. However, that would change dramatically in the early 20th century for a number of reasons.
One of these reasons was that the Suspension Bridge – originally designed for horse cars and pedestrians – was reconstructed in the late 1890s to accommodate electric streetcars – and in a few short years, automobiles. During the early 1900s, many new commercial and governmental structures were constructed in Covington.
John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge is said to be the most haunted Brige of it's size in America! Many who accidents upon often tell of swerving to miss running over a shadow figure standing in their lane.
Richmond is a city in and the county seat of Madison County, Kentucky, United States. It is named after Richmond, Virginia, and is the home of Eastern Kentucky University. The population of Richmond, Kentucky was 32,895 in 2008 and is expected to be 35,000 by 2010. Richmond is Kentucky's 6th largest city. It is also home to a very horrid frightening Devil's chair that is said to take whomever sits in it straight to hell.
Richmond is a principal city of the Richmond–Berea Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Madison and Rockcastle counties.
The City of Richmond was founded in the year of 1798, by Colonel John Miller, who was active in the Revolutionary War as a soldier. According to local lore, Colonel Miller was attracted to the area by the uncommonly good spring water and friendly local Indian tribes. That same year, the Kentucky legislature approved moving the county seat from Milford to land that was owned by the Colonel Miller. The residents of Milford,adamantly opposed the move, and the county and residents of Richmond. This eventually led to a fight between Dave Kennedy (representing Milford) and William Kearly (represented Richmond). The results of this battle was never recorded, but the county approved the move in March 1798. On 4 July 1798, the new town was officially Richmond in honor of Miller's birthplace in Virginia.
During the Civil War, the Union and Confederate Armies waged a pitched battle near Richmond on August 30, 1862. Troops under Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith routed soldiers commanded by Union General William Nelson. Of Wright's 6,500 men, only 1,200 escaped the battle and almost 4,500 were captured. Some historians call this battle "the nearest thing to a Cannae ever scored by any general, North or South, in the course of the whole war." On March 16, 1861, Smith entered the Confederate forces as a major in the regular artillery, and was transferred to the regular cavalry that same day with the rank of lieutenant colonel. After serving briefly as Brig. Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's assistant adjutant general in the Shenandoah Valley, Smith was promoted to brigadier general on June 17, 1861, and given command of a brigade in the Army of the Shenandoah, which he led at the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21. Wounded severely in the neck and shoulder, he recuperated while commanding the Department of Middle and East Florida. He returned to duty on October 11 as a major general and division commander in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, operating in northern Virginia.
In February 1862, Smith was sent west to command the Army of East Tennessee. Cooperating with Gen. Braxton Bragg in the invasion of Kentucky, he scored a victory at the Battle of Richmond on August 30, 1862, and was named on October 9 to the newly created grade of lieutenant general, becoming a corps commander in the Army of Tennessee. Smith would also receive the "Thanks of Congress" on February 17, 1864, for his actions at Richmond. Many say it is his actual ghost that leads the spectral troops and that he the often is seen riding horse back at dawn.
Many in town talk of the ghosts of soldiers or often encoutered that still haunt the city night and day. And talk of strange Crypids like the Treeman, and the once and a while spottings of a bigfoot or two.
Madison County courthouse in Richmond is said to be haunted by no less then 6 ghosts.
The Most Haunted State Capital In the USA
Frankfort the Capital is often called the most Haunted State Capital in the Unites States of America. Frankfort is a city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky that serves as the state capital and the county seat of Franklin County. The population was 27,741 at the 2000 census; by population, it is the 5th smallest state capital in the United States. but that does not keep it from being the most haunted!
Frankfort is the principal city of the Frankfort, Kentucky Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Franklin and Anderson counties. ghosts and strange creatures are often said to haunt the roads and the most notable ghost is that of Old Man Cotton as he is called. Many say he is the ghost of a man they they spot and often see on many of the highways and bys of the state. This hitchiking ghosts often appears as a man in his late 60's with a bloody head who waves you down as if for help. He will actually speak to you and tell you his name, asking please for fast help, to save his wife who is as he says laying in the ditch with her leg cut off, next to the road.
sometines he will tell you he is looking up and dow the road for her severed leg, and would you please go see to her until help arrives.
When you get out your car he is gone. He just dissapears the second you look at him and blink.
Many try to keep direct eye contact with this strange bleeding man but in an instance something happens and he is no where to be found.
Frankfort is also home to a very haunted Devil's chair and a secret lost Crybaby bridge.
In 1786 James Wilkinson purchased the 260-acre (1.1 km2) tract of land on the north side of the Kentucky River that is now downtown Frankfort. He was an early promoter to make Frankfort the country's capital. and it is so blieved he still haunts the capitial with pride and will chase after those that try to rock the laws.
The town of Frankfort probably received its name from an event that took place in 1780s when Indians attacked a group of pioneers from Bryan’s Station who were making salt at a ford in the Kentucky River. One of the pioneers, Stephen Frank, was killed and the crossing became known as "Frank’s Ford." Frank's ghost is said to haunt the location and you can hear him crying for help on many of an EVP. Later this name was shortened to Frankfort.
After Thomas Kennedy (Madison County), and Robert Todd (Fayette County). A number of communities competed for this honor, but Frankfort won by perseverance and, according to early histories, the offer of Andrew Holmes' log house as capitol for seven years, a number of town lots, £50 worth of locks and hinges, 10 boxes of glass, 1,500 pounds of nails, and $3,000 in gold. Many say his ghosts haunts the spot with pride that he had the honor to have his name put into the history of the State.
Frankfort had a post office by 1794, with Daniel Weisiger as postmaster. Many say his ghost still watches over the delivery of the mail.
John Brown, a Virginia lawyer and statesman, built a home, now called Liberty Hall, in Frankfort in 1796. Many say his ghost often is encountered standing out in front of where he once lived. Before statehood he represented Virginia in the Continental Congress (1777–78) and the U.S. Congress (1789–91). While in Congress he introduced the bill granting statehood to Kentucky. Once that was accomplished, he was elected a U.S. Senator for Kentucky.
The Kentucky General Assembly appropriated funds to provide a house to accommodate the governor in 1796. Construction was completed in 1798. The Old Governor's Mansion is reputed to be the oldest official executive residence still in use in the United States.
In 1829 the Old Capitol, the third Capitol of Kentucky, was built in the Greek Revival style by Gideon Shryock. Many say his ghost still haunts the spot unhappy by all the great change he see's. The building served Kentucky as its Capitol from 1830 until 1910.
During the American Civil War fortifications overlooking downtown Frankfort were built on what is now called Fort Hill. The Confederate Army occupied Frankfort for a short time. And the ghosts of the long civil war dead are often said to patrol the the location and the city streets at night.
On February 3, 1900 Governor-elect William Goebel was assassinated in Frankfort while walking to the capitol to be inaugurated. some say his ghosts repeats this act each year on the anniversary of his death. Former Secretary of State Caleb Powers was later found guilty in a conspiracy to kill Goebel.
The city has seen considerable growth since the 1960s. A modern addition to the State Office Building was completed in 1967. The original building was completed in the 1930s on the location of the former Kentucky State Penitentiary. Some of the stone from the old prison was used for the walls surrounding the office building. Capitol Plaza was established in the 1960s. The Plaza consists of the Capitol Plaza Office Tower, the Capitol Plaza Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn, Frankfort), and the Fountain Place Shoppes. The Capital Plaza Office Tower opened in approximately 1968. In August 2008, officials revealed a plan to demolish the Capital Plaza Office Tower and redevelop the area over a period of years, replacing the Tower with a smaller, four- or five-story building.

Hopkinsville is a city in Christian County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 30,089 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Christian County . A 2008 population estimate puts the city at 32,076.
Hopkinsville was settled in 1796 by Bartholomew and Martha Ann Wood, a couple from Jonesborough, Tennessee. The Wood family established a permanent settlement in the vicinity of present-day West Seventh and Bethel Streets, near what would become known as the Old Rock Spring. Wood staked a claim, based on his service in the American Revolutionary War, on 1,200 acres (5 km2) of land. He built a second cabin on what is now the northeast corner of Ninth and Virginia streets and a few years later built a home southeast of Fourteenth and Campbell streets, where he died in 1827. Wood's settlement soon attracted other settlers, and a pioneer village emerged.
Wood donated 5 acres (20,000 m2) of land and a half interest in his spring for the county seat. The following year a log courthouse, jail, and "stray pen" were built on the public square facing Main Street. The plat for the town, first called Christian Court House, was surveyed by John Campbell and Samuel Means in 1799. In honor of Wood's eldest daughter, the town was renamed Elizabeth that same year. However, a town in Hardin County had the same name, and when the city incorporated in 1804, the General Assembly renamed the settlement Hopkinsville, in honor of General Samuel Hopkins of Henderson County.
Hopkinsville in the Civil War
The Civil War generated major social and economic division among the people in Hopkinsville and Christian County. A physical evidence of this discord led to the establishment of Union Camp Joe Anderson, located northwest of Hopkinsville. Men who trained there became members of the 35th Kentucky Cavalry, the 25th Kentucky Infantry, and the 35th Kentucky Infantry. Union General James S. Jackson, a Hopkinsville attorney before the war, was killed in the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky, in October 1862. Private citizens who supported the Union cause provided the army with mules, wagons, clothing, and food. Confederate support in Hopkinsville and Christian County was evident in the establishment of the Oak Grove Rangers and the 28th Kentucky Cavalry.
Christian County was the birthsite of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America. Several local businessmen and plantation owners contributed money and war supplies to the "Lost Cause." The war period brought military take-over of Hopkinsville at least half a dozen times by both Confederate and Union forces. In December 1864, Confederate troops under General Hylan B. Lyon captured the town and burned the Christian County courthouse. A skirmish between Union and Confederate forces took place in the field across from Western State Hospital near the end of the war.
The Black Patch Tobacco Wars and the Night Riders
In the early years of the twentieth century, tobacco planters formed a protectionist Dark Tobacco District Planters' Protective Association of Kentucky and Tennessee. This was in opposition to a corporate monopoly: the American Tobacco Company (ATC) trust, owned by James B. Duke.
Many farmers found that they could no longer sell their tobacco crop at a profit and that the ATC was the region's only buyer, now that the many tobacco companies had formed the trust using that agency to purchase all tobacco from any farmer at a fixed price. Upon establishing the protective association and rivaling the monopoly by practicing boycotts of tobacco sales, some farmers formed the Silent Brigade in an effort to apply social pressure for the purpose of terrorizing farmers into joining the Association against the Trust and holding to its boycott of raising no tobacco or selling no tobacco.
The Silent Brigade was later to be infamous as the Night Riders, assembled and regulated by suspected leader Dr. David A. Amoss. The Night Riders, as they were called, were sometimes regarded as heroes by farmers whom they helped although they were often known for violence by some members within their ranks and their organized fight against the changing tobacco industry.
On December 7, 1907, 250 masked night riders captured police and sheriff posts and cut off the town from outside contact. They then pursued city officials and tobacco executives who were buying cheap tobacco from farmers who were not members of the Dark Tobacco District Planters' Protective Association. Three warehouses were burned during a night of lawlessness. Peace Park in Hopkinsville was created on the site of one of the warehouses; it is now one of the town's major visitor attractions.
Tornado of April 2006
On April 2, 2006, an F3 tornado caused major damage. 93 homes were destroyed and 199 others suffered severe damage.

Henderson is a city in Henderson County, Kentucky, United States, along the Ohio River in the western part of the state. The population was 27,373 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Evansville, Indiana metropolitan area.
The city has been called home by ornithologist, naturalist, and painter John James Audubon as well as blues legend W.C. Handy. For more than 100 years the city has been home to the Southern Cherokee Nation.
Henderson has its roots in a small, block-wide strip of land high above the Ohio River, currently the site of Audubon Mill Park (directly south of the city's riverfront boat dock). A frontier village on this site was called "Red Banks" by the native Americans who originally lived and hunted there, because of the reddish clay soil on the tall banks of the river. In the early and mid 1790's, Red Banks featured a tavern and was home to several white settlers.
Henderson's roots lie in a scheme by a North Carolina judge, Colonel Richard Henderson, (the actual ghost of Henderson has been said to haunt the city in times of unrest.) and a group of investors who sought to buy much of modern-day Kentucky and Tennessee from 1,200 Cherokee Indians gathered at Sycamore Shoals (located at present day Elizabethton, Tennessee) and later resell these frontier lands to settlers.
Henderson's group, the Transylvania Company, hired Daniel Boone to help settle the region. The Virginia General Assembly ultimately voided the deal, but granted Richard Henderson & Company 200,000 acres (800 km²) in exchange for their efforts in developing the wilderness region. That ground was located where the Green River flows into the Ohio River. Richard Henderson died years before the site was developed. On behalf of other investors and their heirs, Gen. Samuel Hopkins and a surveyor named Thomas Allin in 1797 visited Red Banks and laid out plans for a town, which was named Henderson.
A distinguishing characteristic of their efforts were unusually wide streets, reportedly to prevent a fire in one block from easily spreading to another. Those streets are so wide that today even with diagonal parking spaces downtown, there is still enough space to allow delivery trucks to park in the center of the street without interfering with two-way traffic. An historic walking tour of the greater downtown area has been organized by the Downtown Henderson Project.
The Transylvania Purchase at Sycamore Shoals in Elizabethton, Tennessee and the Wilderness Road into Kentucky.
In the latter half of the 19th century, Henderson County became a major producer of tobacco, much of which was exported to Great Britain. Henderson was reported to be the largest dark tobacco producer in the world with large tobacco warehouses and stemmeries dotting the downtown area. Picture postcards from the era show long lines of horse/mule-drawn wagons piled high with tobacco, waiting their turn to unload. Some tobacco processors accumulated considerable fortunes. Undocumented claims have persisted that in 1860 Henderson ranked second only to Heidelberg, Germany, in terms of per capita wealth and that shortly before World War I it was home to more millionaires than any city in the world for its size. But Great Britain imposed a high tariff on imported tobacco after World War I, wrecking Henderson's export market. Tobacco warehouses and plants closed, and the community's economic fortunes reversed. The last tobacco facility, the Soaper Tobacco Warehouse on Pennell Street, closed in 1984.
While many cities were inundated during the devastation during the Ohio River flood of 1937, the city of Henderson, because of its position on a bluff above the river, was spared much of the damage that Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Louisville, Evansville, Paducah and others suffered. That prompted Leigh Harris, publisher of the Henderson Gleaner and Evening Journal newspapers, to boast: "Henderson is on the river but never in it!" That helped prompt industrialization of the city.
This haunted city also boasts a very haunted Devil's chair init's most haunted cemetery.
On June 25, 2008, a worker at the Atlantis Plastics plant shot six people, killing five and wounding another, before killing himself. The shooting stemmed from a dispute between the shooter and a supervisor.
Florence is a city in Boone County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 23,551 at the 2000 census, but estimated to be 27,745 in 2008
The Florence area was originally known as Crossroads, because of the convergence of several roads from Burlington and Union at Ridge Road (now U.S. 25). By 1821, the area was known as Maddentown, named for Thomas Madden, a Covington attorney who owned a farm on the Burlington Pike. When Madden moved away, the area became known as Connersville in 1828, for Jacob Conner, a settler who assumed responsibility for the growing town. The town was renamed Florence as another Connersville already existed in Harrison County. It was incorporated on January 27, 1830 and grew quickly after the completion of the Covington-Lexington Turnpike in 1836. It is said to be home to many lost and strange hitchiking ghosts.
Jeffersontown was founded in the late 18th century by Abraham Bruner as "Brunerstown". The city was chartered as Jeffersontown in 1797, after then Vice-President Thomas Jefferson. The hauntinngs in Jeffersontown or said to bs still waiting to be expored? Cryptids, ghosts Bigfoot, thunder birds, and mystical creatures and supernatural beings and UFO's... it's all here but the documentation is said to be top secret! The locals or very closed mouth when it comes to the supernatural.
Nicholasville is the 11th largest city in state of Kentucky and the county seat of Jessamine County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 19,680 at the 2000 census. 2008 population estimates put Nicholasville at a population of 26,644. It functions as both a residential area for commuters to Lexington, and also as an employment and shopping center for South Central Kentucky. and certainly haunted by many ghosts and a cryptid or two.
US 27 is a major north-south artery. It is thought to be the most haunted higway in the state. From the Lexington city limits to the Business US 27 intersection north of the city center, it is a four-lane arterial highway with a center-turning lane. US 27 diverts to the western edge of the city center on a four-lane, controlled-access bypass and continues south of the city towards the Kentucky River.
Paducah is the largest city in Kentucky's Jackson Purchase Region and the county seat of McCracken County, Kentucky, United States. It is located at the confluence of the Tennessee River and the Ohio River. The population was 26,307 at the 2000 census. Twenty blocks of Downtown Paducah have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also said to be home to a very special Devi'l chair that makes your wish come true.
It is the hub for the Paducah Micropolitan Area, which includes McCracken, Ballard and Livingston counties in Kentucky and Massac County in Illinois; which had a population of 98,127 in 2006. The entire city is said to be very haunted.
Paducah, originally called Pekin, began around 1815 as a mixed community of Native Americans and white settlers who were attracted by its location at the confluence of many waterways.
According to legend, Chief Paduke, most likely a Chickasaw, welcomed the people traveling down the Ohio and Tennessee on flatboats. His wigwam, located on a low bluff at the mouth of Island Creek, served as the counsel lodge for his village. The settlers, appreciative of his hospitality, and respectful of his ways, settled across the creek.
The two communities lived in harmony trading goods and services enjoying the novelty of each other's culture. The settlers had brought horses and mules which they used to pull the flatboats upstream to farms, logging camps, trading posts and other settlements along the waterways, establishing a primitive, but thriving economy.
This cultural interaction continued until William Clark, famed leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, arrived in 1827 with a title deed to the land upon which Pekin sat. Clark was the superintendent of Native American affairs for the Mississippi-Missouri River region. He asked the Chief and the settlers to move along, which they did, offering little resistance probably because the deed was issued by the United States Supreme Court. Though the deed cost only $5.00 to process, it carried with it the full authority of the U. S. Government backed by the United States Army.
Clark surveyed his new property and laid out the grid for a new town which remains evident to this day. The Chief and his villagers moved to Mississippi allowing Clark to continue with the building of the new city which he named Paducah in honor of the Chief. Upon completion of the plat, Clark sent envoys to Mississippi to invite Chief Paduke back to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, but he died of malaria in the boat while making the return trip. The settlers had been allowed to purchase tracts within the new grid but most of them moved on to less developed areas.
During the American Civil War on September 6, 1861, forces under Union General Ulysses S. Grant captured Paducah, which gave the Union control of the mouth of the Tennessee River. Throughout most of the war, US Colonel Stephen G. Hicks was in charge of Paducah and massive Union supply depots and dock facilities for the gunboats and supply ships that supported Federal forces along the Ohio, Mississippi and Tennessee River systems.
On December 17, 1862, under the terms of General Order No. 11, thirty Jewish families, longtime residents all, were forced from their homes. Cesar Kaskel, a prominent local Jewish businessman, dispatched a telegram to President Lincoln, and met with him, eventually succeeding in getting the order revoked.
On March 25, 1864, Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest raided Paducah as part of his campaign Northward from Mississippi into Western Tennessee and Kentucky to re-supply the Confederate forces in the region with recruits, ammunition, medical supplies, horses and mules and to generally upset the Union domination of the regions south of the Ohio River. The raid was successful in terms of the re-supply effort and in intimidating the Union, but Forrest returned south.
Nathan Bedford Forrest (July 13, 1821 – October 29, 1877) was a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. He is remembered both as a self-made and innovative cavalry leader during the war and as a figure in the postwar establishment of the first Ku Klux Klan organization opposing the Reconstruction era in the South.
About the Ku Klux Klan Founded: 1866 Headquarters: Each different Klan group has its own headquarters. Background: The Klan has fragmented into more than 40 separate factions of varying sizes. There is no “one” Ku Klux Klan. Estimated size: There are over a hundred different chapters in the various Klan organizations, with varying memberships. Overall, there may be as many as 5,000 members and associates of the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan is strongest in the South and in the Midwest.
Many say the ghost of Nathan Bedford Forrest still haunts the many roads leading to Paducah.
His ghost is often seen riding his robbed steed through the night.
* Forrest's report: "I drove the enemy to their gunboats and fort; and held the town for ten hours, captured many stores and horses; burned sixty bales of cotton, one steamer, and a drydock, bringing out fifty prisoners."
Later, Forrest, having read in the newspapers that 140 fine horses had escaped the raid, sent Brigadier General Abraham Buford back to Paducah, to get the horses and to keep Union forces busy there while he attacked Fort Pillow.
On April 14, 1864 Buford's men found the horses hidden in a foundry as the newspapers reported. Buford rejoined Forrest with the spoils, leaving the Union in control of Paducah until the end of the War.
For more details on this topic, see Kentucky in the American Civil War.
In 1937, the Ohio River at Paducah rose above its 50-foot flood stage on January 21, cresting at 60.8 feet on February 2 and receding again to 50-feet on February 15. For nearly three weeks, 27,000 residents were forced to flee to stay with friends and relatives in higher ground in McCracken County or in other counties. Some shelters were provided by the American Red Cross and local churches. Buildings in downtown Paducah still bear plaques that highlight the high water marks.
Flood Marker on Broadway (top 1937, bottom 1913, below -> 1884
With 18 inches of rainfall in 16 days, along with sheets of swiftly moving ice the '37 flood was the worst natural disaster in Paducah's history. Because Paducah's earthen levee was ineffective against this flood, the United States Army Corps of Engineers was commissioned to build the flood wall that now protects the city from the ravages of flooding.
In 1950 the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission selected Paducah as the site for a new Uranium enrichment Plant. Construction began in 1951 and began operations in 1952. The plant, originally operated by Union Carbide has changed hands several times to Martin Marieta, Lockheed-Martin, and is now operated by the United States Enrichment Corporation. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), successor to the AEC, remains the owner.
Quilt City, USA
The Museum of the American Quilter's Society in Paducah
On April 25, 1991, the American Quilter's Society located its Museum - MAQS in downtown Paducah. Each spring, during the Dogwood season, quilt enthusiasts from all over the world flock to Paducah for the Society's annual event. The Quilt Show is one of Paducah's largest events of the year and draws large revenue in tourism. Hotels for miles around the city fill up months in advance of the show.
The museum was honored in May 2008 when the congressional designation as The National Quilt Museum of the United States was bestowed. May Louise Zumwalt, Executive Director of the Museum, said recently “Though it does not mean we will receive national funding, it does recognize that we are a quilt museum with national significance.” This designation brings additional attention and helps increase the number of visitors. The Museum currently averages 40,000 visitors per year from across the country and at least 25 foreign countries.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh Wants To Know...
The Dead Spoken To You Lately?
Lisa Lee Harp Waugh
The American Necromancer
The first lady of conjuring the Dead.
The ancient art pf Necromancy is still
alive today with Waugh at it's main
investigator. LISA LEE HARP WAUGH
Is a necromancer in the 21st century.
She is by what may call a real conduit
to the world of the dead. She dressers
in ceremonial robes, draws magical
circles on the floor and commands
spirits from Heaven, Hell and all
places in between to appear before
her and communicate with the living.
As a teenager she studied heavily
The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish
and The Grand Grimoire by A.E Waite,
the Malleus Maleficarum and anything
she could get her hands on by the
great by Eliphas Levi, John Dee and
the great beast, Aleister Crowley.
A professional Necromancer and founder
of the Sorcerers and Necomaner Guild
of greater Houston, Texas. Waugh has
been practicing and conducting rituals
for many paranormal investigators
for over 20 years. Waugh also paints
many spiritual and common murals and
lives in a small Texas town with her
three dogs. She also over the years
makes ceremonial candles and is active
in ghost hunting in the deep South.
Summoning the dead to communicate
with the living is a natural daily
occurrence for Waugh. "I have
been doing this since I was a child."
" When I lived in Galveston,
Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced
to the ancient rights of ceremonial
Necromancy as a ritual by a great
shaman called Freebird, and because
of him and his diligence to the art,
I still practice it until this day."
"However, if a spirit has something
vital to impart to you, they will
call upon you, not vice-versa and
no ritual is needed".
She then Got involved with the local
Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new
doors where opened to her concerning
communicating with the dead.
Waugh was baptized and trained in
the secret dark religion by Bianca
The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh
lived in New Orleans for 3 years until
she learned all about spells, hex's
and how to hoodoo voodoo people as
Waugh also owned and managed the
fantastic Candle Making Company in
Galveston, Texas for many years that
catered to the eclectic patrons taste
of many of the states visitors and
just curious. She then moved to Houston's
Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This
now where she resides to this day.
Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy
and her new found religion of Voodoo
Necromantic practitioners such as
Waugh conducts, and entails respect
and reverence not only for the spirits
of the dead, but for the spirits of
Hell, Heaven and all places in between.
Waugh has a large home one room she
has painted black where she calls
the good spirits. Another painted
all black where she calls the infernal
American Ghost Hunters Society is
currently accepting new members all
across the country for our network
of ghost hunters, ghost writers and
Investigate all types of Paranormal
and Unexplained Phenomena through
Research and Documentation.
Waugh is often compared today in
her facial features and many similar
practices as being a modern Dr. John
Dee. He of course was one of the most
fascinating characters of the Elizabethan
period just as Waugh is recognized
as such in modern times. The events
of Dee's life are filled with science,
experiments, astrology and mathematics
which he aligned with magic, the supernatural
and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's
personal passion and driven honest
beliefs. These are also stead fast
traditions she does and true in practicing
openly. A few of her select followers
say she is the actual reincarnation
of John Dee. Waugh also practices
astrology, and is very continuously
studying the Black Arts.
Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal
does not comment on any of this privately
or publicly ... for she is humble
in her paranormal studies and research
to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend
of her's relates: "Waugh is a
very outgoing friendly, charming and
a downright loveable person, and gets
along equally well with the living
and the dead." Lanier and Waugh
once investigated a real Haunted Texas
Federal Prison together for close
to two years in the early 1990's and
had many startling paranormal adventures
Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments
have been achieved through hard work,
persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude
required to overcome obstacles and
reach difficult goals. Waugh shares
her approach to communicating with
the dead's success in this motivational
performance that's sure to inspire
Paranormal Investigators to excel
in their life.
