Evenings Upstairs – Legends and Lore from America’s Most Haunted Neighborhood
Led by David Domine, writer & raconteur.
The most haunted neighborhood in America? That’s what many are calling Old Louisville, an extensive preservation district filled with old mansions and strikingly beautiful homes in Kentucky’s largest city. Wherever you go in this eye-popping neighborhood, it seems that a haunted house is not far away — or a haunted church, a haunted street corner, or a haunted park. Over the last two decades, so many stories of supernatural activity have surfaced in the area that Old Louisville has gained the reputation as being the spookiest neighborhood in the entire country.
Author David Dominé shares some of the most famous legends and alleged hauntings from this beautiful historic preservation district.
David Dominé has called Kentucky home since moving to Louisville in 1993. Over the years, his adopted state has provided him an unending supply of artistic inspiration, so it’s not surprising that – from local hauntings to bourbon recipes – Kentucky spirits frequently come alive in his narratives. In addition to writing travel pieces for local and national publications, he has also published books on Victorian architecture, regional cooking, folklore, and haunted history. David has an MA in German Literature from the University of California at Santa Barbara and an MA in Spanish Literature from the University of Louisville. He also completed studies in literary translation at the Karl-Franzens Universität in Graz, Austria, and received an MFA in Writing from Spalding University.
He is the author of True Ghost Stories and Eerie Legends from America’s Most Haunted Neighborhood, Ghosts of Old Louisville: True Stories of Hauntings in America’s Largest Victorian Neighborhood, Old Louisville: Exuberant, Elegant, and Alive, Adventures in New Kentucky Cooking with The Bluegrass Peasant and Voodoo Days at La Casa Fabulosa: An Unconventional Memoir.
