Overview

March through November, daily; limited dates in the off-season!

Impressive Victorian mansions and quirky residents have earned national attention for Old Louisville, where bourbon barons, racetrack royalty, and titans of tobacco settled in the 1800s. This narrated walk comes from books by David Dominé, who often guides groups himself. Tales involve personal experiences and neighborhood gossip. The New York Times recommends this as the first thing to do during a visitor's "36 Hours in Louisville." You'll also learn about A DARK ROOM IN GLITTER BALL CITY, David's next book—out in October 2021!

Specializing in "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood," we depart from the corner of Fourth and Ormsby, at the transitional edge of the neighborhood. If you love old architecture and spooky history, this is the tour for you! If you do not like an up-and-coming neighborhood with a diverse racial make up, this tour is not for you! If you can't go 100 minutes without a bathroom, this is not for you!

We had a brief hail and wind storm blow through adding to the spooky mood of the tour. The guide was great and the homes were beautiful! A great time was had by all.

Enjoyable experience & learned a lot about the influences of LouKY barons. About 30 in the group. I’d do it again because there was so much to take in.

Excellent tour and loved listening to the stories. Definitely a must do. We went a few days before Halloween and so it was fun to see the neighborhood as well during this time of year.

Jamie was an exceptional guide. She is knowledgeable, personable, and really fun! My daughter and I were overwhelmed by the charm of Old Louisville and moved by it’s history and tales of ghosts, witches and voodoo. It creates an atmosphere of diversity and finding possibility in all facets of life. The residents of Old Louisville love their heritage and we appreciate them sharing their amazing neighborhood with visiting guests like us. This tour is an excellent value for all that it offers.
