Cynthiana Ghost Walks     


Real Stories ... Real Places ...        


Take a lantern led stroll through historic, shadowy, downtown Cynthiana and discover the darker side of its past. Combining accomplished story-telling, personal experience, and an inside tour of one of the most haunted places in Kentucky, the Cynthiana Ghost Walk has been a hit since the first walk!


Every Friday and Saturday night in October, believers and non-believers alike meet on the sidewalk in front of the historic Rohs Opera House, the 3rd most haunted building in Kentucky, and embark on a walking tour of downtown Cynthiana led by experienced storytellers and real-life ghost hunters who provide authentic video and voice recordings (EVPs) collected during earlier ghost hunts. Tour goers have exclusive access to some of the most haunted buildings in Cynthiana such as:

Rohs Opera House

Built in 1871, this theatre has been placed of several “most haunted” lists and is a popular destination for ghost hunters from all around. A mysterious “Lady in White” has been seen by several over the years. Will you see her next?

The Old Jail

Hear one of Harrison County’s scariest ghost stories from the inner courtyard of this historic and spooky location. Actually go into the dark, damp cells where many a murderer and criminal spent their days and nights.

The Log Cabin

Do the ghosts of James and Elizabeth McPheters still roam the rooms of this building, 200 years later? Or could it be the spirit of a condemned criminal sentenced to hang from days when this building was a courthouse?

Seldon Renaker Inn

Murder…that’s how this quaint bed and breakfast has made it on our tour, but that’s not all that sets this building apart. Slamming doors, shadows in hallways, and other strange happenings sometimes awaken the inn’s guests. Hear for yourself and then decide if you want to book a room!

See for yourself why the Cynthiana Ghost Walk is an event you just have to experience. Enjoyable for all ages, skeptics and believers alike. Includes a 60 minute stroll through downtown Cynthiana (less than ¼ mile) and a 30 minute visit inside the historic and haunted Rohs Opera House. This is not a haunted house with people in costume trying to scare you. These are real stories about real places.

Starting at the historic Rohs Opera House! Tickets are $15
