Thomas Wolfe Memorial

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Thomas Wolfe Memorial

Old Kentucky Home, the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, was the home of the renowned writer and featured in his autobiographical novel “Look Homeward, Angel.” The place has a couple of spirits in residence: those of a woman and a man. The woman’s apparition has been spotted in the dining room; the man in a rocking chair upstairs. Witnesses say a face has peered out an upstairs window late at night, and the sounds of an old-fashioned typewriter have been heard.
