Ashland - Paramount
Art Center -
Ashland - Paramount Art Center - It is said that during some early renovation work on the Paramount Theatre,
a death occurred there and the man?s ghost has forever since haunted the Paramount. In the early 1940s, four construction
workers from Boyd Theater Company in Cincinnati, Ohio were working on a project inside the auditorium. It is reported that
all of them had gone to lunch except one man, a guy named Joe. When the other three returned, they found Joe hanging from
the curtain rigging, dead. And since then, sounds have been heard, things have gone missing, cold drafts have been felt, and
some folks even claim to have seen the image of a man appear on occasion. However, he is by all means a ?good ghost? - one
who seems to look out for the benefit of the theatre and its occupants. When Billy Ray Cyrus was here filming his video for
"Achy Breaky Heart," he was told about the legend of Paramount Joe. Between breaks, Billy Ray would talk to Joe, laughing
and joking with him, sometimes even asking for his help. It is customary to get 8 x 10 photographs signed by each performer
that appears at the Paramount and then hang the photo on the 'Wall of Fame' in the box office. Billy Ray personally autographed
large color posters to each of the female employees working here at the time - and one with a personal inscription to Paramount
Joe, whom he now had a fondness for. Each lady put her poster near her desk and Joe's was hung in the box office, near all
the other performers. As time passed and the walls in the box office became too full of 8x10?s signed by other performers,
the executive director felt that some of the pictures and posters needed to come down. Since there were so many of Billy Ray,
she asked the women to remove their posters since they were all so similar. Nobody wanted to take their personally autographed
picture of Billy Ray down so they took down the one he had signed to Paramount Joe. The next day, when the ladies came to
work, every single 8x10 and poster that had been hanging neatly on the walls the night before were now lined strewn on the
floor, many of their glass frames shattered! It was as if someone had wiped each one off the wall. To this day, Paramount
Joe?s poster still hangs in the Paramount, in a very special part of The Marquee Room, which is now the site of Paramount
Joe?s Rising Star Caf钮 There is another story about the time two new employees wanted to investigate the basement in
the Paramount and some old items that had been stored there. To reach the basement, you must go through a door that is located
just inside the lounge outside the ladies restroom. This brings you to the top of the stairs. At the top of those stairs is
a light switch that will light the first section of the stairwell. As you progress, there is a switch that will light each
area in front of you. And, there is no partner switch. In other words, you must turn the light off at the same place you turned
it on. The marketing director had offered to take the two new female employees into the basement and turned on the lights
at the top of the stairs. The ladies hurried down the steps. At that moment the marketing director was called to take a phone
call inside the office. He told the other two employees to wait, he would be right back. In their excitement however, they
did not hear him and they continued on. Recounting the story later, it was at this point they called up to him to turn on
the next light for them. As it turned out, he was on the phone longer than expected and met the ladies as they were coming
back up the steps. "Thanks for turning on the light for us," one of them said, "but we can't get it to turn off." Puzzled,
he explained that he had not turned on the light for them ? and in fact, could not turn on the light. The expression on their
faces revealed that they were not kidding with him. They lead him back into the basement, only to be met by darkness. 'Someone'
had turned the light off again as well. "Well, thanks Joe," called out one of the ladies, as she shivered. In 2004, marketing
director Tyson Compton was giving a tour to some high school students. As he was relating the Paramount Joe story, he realized
that he was always talking about Joe, and not to him. So as he spoke to the students, he stopped and called out, ?Joe, are
you here? Is it ok that I tell your story?? While he swears that he then heard a seat squeak, that is not the the most chilling
part of this story. Compton relates how he received a call the very next day from a psychic who lived in the area. She asked
him if someone in his family or a close friend had recently died because she had gotten a message from ?the other side.? He
said no that he could think of no one. ?Well, she said, ?I?m supposed to tell you that Joe said he is here.?

ground. It is said that if you knock of her head that she will curse you with bad luck and you might die, however if you place

- Baker Hollow Road Cemetery - Many different things occur at this particular cemetery. It is located off of Baker Church
Road going toward Morganfield. You turn to the left off Baker Church Road on to Baker Hollow Road. There is one cemetery behind
the church on the left. After you pass this church there is a fork in the road, follow it to the left and this is where everything
begins. However on a good night it begins when you first turn on the road. You have to go after dark but the best time to
go is around or after midnight. This cemetery disappears and then reappears in different locations. However it will not show
itself when you drive down the road. You have to drive down to the end of the road and turn around and come back in order
to see the cemetery. You will know when you are close to the cemetery because you will have an overwhelming feeling of sadness
and will begin to cry for no apparent reason. You will see and hear various things. Sometimes you can hear music playing,
laughter, screams and hear things trying to get in your vehicle. There have also been fingerprints and dents in vehicles visitors
have taken `ut there as well as scratches that came from the outside but went all the way thought the glass. If you are actually
lucky enough to find the cemetery and drive up in to it you will not be able to drive out. It is so spiritually active that
it drains the battery of your car leaving you stranded until the morning or until you get brave enough to push your car out.
There have been images of Soldiers killing each other and those around them. There have been sightings of the dense woods
opening where you can see more than you should. The fork in the road rolls and a dense mist appears and disappears as you
drive the road. There is also a guardian dog. This dog closely resembles the "Hounds of Hell" as described in the Bible. This
dog has dead yellow eyes and casts the shadow of a demon when it gets ready to disappear in the triangle at the fork in the
road. The dog appears to be injured when it first appears on the side of the road, thus making you want to stop and pick it
up, which in turn gives an open invitation to any spirit that is around. When you fail to pick up the dog things begin to
change. The dog will walk a few steps and then turn to see if you are still following it. However if you speed up the dog
will speed up, if you slow down it will slow down, if you go to the left it will go to the left, if you go to the right it
will go to the right and it is impossible to run over this dog. There have also been sightings of wrecked vehicles with people
screaming for help. Due to the period in time when this cemetery was began you will see images of men who were hung from the
trees out this road before and after you pass the cemetery. You will also see images of dead family members calling to you.
You will also experience a change in the weather when you turn out this road. For instance it will be raining before you turn
on the road, but when you turn on to this road the rain mysteriously stops and the mist begins until you exit this road where
the rain will start again. There are many other things that occur out this road but you have to be very alert and very open
to the spirit world and you cannot show fear or it can take your soul, according to the legend. There are many trapped souls
at this location that will mess with you. Make sure you do not have an open invitation of any kind. This means windows rolled
up and doors locked. These spirits can also communicate with you through your dreams if you will let them. So go if you dare
just don't show fear! Everyone sees something different when they go to this location so be prepared to be scared.
- Pilot's Knobb - Witches Grave - This cemetery is located off of Ford's Ferry Road in Marion. The legend behind this cemetery
is about a five year old girl who was burned at the stake, along with her mother, in the late 1800's to the early 1900's for
witchcraft. It is not known what happened to the body of the mother, however the little girl, Mary Evelyn, is buried in a
steel lined grave that is covered with rock and not dirt. She has a white picket fence surrounding her grave. The base of
this fence is a series of crosses that connect end to end. However she is not tall enough to climb over the fence, unlike
a normal 5 year old. Her tombstone looks brand new even though it is close to 100 years old, as does the fence. She paces
inside this fence when someone comes to visit her making faces at them and reaching out to them. She sleeps during the day
but is very evident at night. The legend also says that she can not rest because she is searching for her mother but can not
escape the confines of the fence. Many unexplainable things occur at this cemetery. For one the "Watcher" makes himself very
know and tries to follow you out of the cemetery. The "Watcher" was murdered at the swinging bridge but haunts the witch?s
grave. He is trying to get to the little witch but because of the crosses that surround her he is unable to because he is
evil. Crosses appear in the trees both upright and upside down, directly over her grave, though they face different directions.
She presents herself as a normal 5-year-old little girl in a white dress, though her dress is scorched at the bottom as is
her blonde hair. If you lay on her grave she will hold you down refusing to let go until someone from outside of the fence
pulls you free. However never lay on the grave when you are alone because chances are you will be pulled into her grave to
be with her thus giving her more power. As with every haunted cemetery people that are open to the spirit world sees something

haunt the mansion. There have been sightings of Master Clay passing back and forth in front of the top middle window (the
nursery), waiting for his ex-wife and children to return. - June 2005 Update: The Curator at White Hall State Historic Site
reports: It is possible that a daughter and son are at White Hall, as numerous incidents site a woman and a little boy. A
baby most certainly resides in the mansion. On two separate occasions, in two different seasons, tour guides have heard a
baby laughing. Another guide had a small child on her tour remark about seeing babies in the house. The story of Clay passing
before the "top middle window" (which, incidentally is the third floor hallway, and not a nursery) is a story that the works
say they never heard of or experienced at this site. It is doubtful that Cassius would have waited for his ex-wife and children,
more likely they would be waiting for him, as he spent a great deal of time away from home campaigning, fighting in the Mexican
War, as ambassador to Russia, and in general making a spectacle of himself. In addition to sightings of a lady (although we
call her "the lady in black," she is rather stylish and tends to change her clothes, the Curator?s husband has seen her in

smell candles, perfume, apple pie, bourbon and bacon.

had a pretty good day--until he decided to climb down to the tunnel (otherwise known as the Nada Tunnel). It was dark outside
and he wasn't wearing any bright or distinctive colored clothing and as his luck would have it, his rope broke. Just as he
was falling, a big green bus from the job corps came by and hit him as he was falling. To this day, the tunnel still glows
from his presence. At 1:17am, the tunnel will glow for 13 minutes (the length of time it took him to die). Witnesses say,
as he was dying he mentioned seeing "the glow". Now every year on October 29th, at 1:17am, the tunnel glows.

you can go and the house will be locked. And there are times you will go and the house will not be locked...As you turn on
the road it gets very cold even in the Summer time- February 2004 correction ? additional information: Her name was Anna Foster
and she died at the age of 28. In the last year or so her headstone has been stolen and the shelter over her grave has been
vandalized and almost torn apart. It's sad and the submitter has nearly cry every time they see it. They are looking into
fixing the shelter themselves. But they cannot afford to replace her headstone, unfortunately. Upon research they have discovered
that she is not the witch everyone thinks. The "real" witch's grave is located just inside the woods next to this cemetery.
- Again, we have to state that if you are going to investigate these places, have respect for the people involved with
these places. To destroy history, and vandalize graves proves nothing but your foolishness.

The freshman girls dorm has had several incidences on the third floor where they see a girl who does not live there. Sometimes
the girl is crying and sometimes she just stares. Other times she is there and disappears. Doors close and open, TV?s and
stereos come on and off, radios and computers turn on. Padlocked doors are opened and then when you walk back by (minutes
later) it will be locked. Some days it is locked and you can see lights from underneath the door leading up to the attic.

Williamsburg - Highland Park Cemetery
- This cemetery was moved when I-75 came through Williamsburg. It's a rather large cemetery with one mausoleum, and several
monuments. The graves extend out beyond the cemetery gates and it seems as though the most haunted area is beyond the gates.

Winchester - Jones Nursery Road - There
is a sharp curve in the road where a car accident happened, killing the passengers in the car. At midnight on a full moon,
you can sit on the side of the road down from the curve and wait for the ghost of a woman to appear and walk from the curve
toward your car. Witnesses say if you shut your car off, you will have a hard time starting it again and leaving before she
can get to you. And if you leave your car running, the engine tries to bog down and die. So far no one has stayed long enough
for the ghost to get to them.
