Captain Frank McHarry’s Tomb is located on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River. The gravesite of the steamboat captain is said to be visited by a ghostly light or mist. Legend has it that the tomb was built on this spot so he could watch over his former stomping grounds. Reports say the vault is actually empty, though, as the body was moved to Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.
