This bed-and-breakfast inn used to be an actual jail, housing prisoners from 1797 until 1987. It was Kentucky’s oldest operating jail complex, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. But some of the spirits of the incarcerated folks may never have left when the building changed purposes. Witnesses, including staff members, have heard residual sounds of diesmbodied footsteps and people crying.
