I was so excited to hear that American Legacy Tours was finally doing a Haunted Covington Tour. Considering I grew up in Covington and I grew up in a haunted building in Main Strauss. Not only did this tour share great ghost stories that I myself heard over the years but also some great history about the Covington area. Like for instance, did you know that Ulysses S. Grant’s parents lived in Covington? He also lived there during a part of the Civil War and his kids went to a school on Greenup St.
This tour walks you past some of the most beautiful historic homes in the Tri State area. Two great spots that have great haunt stories on the tour are the Baker-Hunt Art and Cultural Center and the Booth Hospital. The Baker-Hunt house has a history of ghost sightings and as I was standing in the living room listening to the stories and history about the house I got the creepiest feeling like someone was watching us. The Booth Hospital has so many different ghost stories and I even shared a ghost story with the tour guides that I saw first hand when I was little.
This is a tour that has a beautiful scenery, wonderful ghost stories, and great history. I strongly suggest this tour even if you don’t believe in ghost just to take in all the historic homes and vibrant history.
Disclaimer: This was a free event that I was invited to for press night. This tour has nothing to do with wine or any wine events, it’s just really freaking cool.

You may note that the tastings in KY are mostly free, and the
tastings in Ohio charge at least .25. It’s illegal for a retailer to
give alcohol away in Ohio, so they charge you, but many times it’s a
