Harlan County Kentucky
In search of the best places for ghost sightings or paranormal events lies in the hills of Harlan County Kentucky. Throughout the years ghost sightings are becoming more interesting and very popular. We have researched and found some truly amazing stories in this small town where the population is only 1,864 people. Harlan is known for "Bloody Harlan" and their Coal Mines. Bloody Harlan took place in 1931. When the Miners were killed by Sheriff's for going on strike for unfair wages.
Harlan is told to have many ghost sightings.
1. It is said on a Dark and rainy night a young women walks by the railroad tracks waiting for the return of her killer, She appears in your back seat, just to get a look at you and then, she's gone in the blink of an eye.
This story is told by many of the older people in Evarts, I have never experienced it myself and I have driven this area a few times.
2. Eastbrook Apartment residents have complained about hearing cries for help in the middle of the night, sightings of figures have been report by many saying ghost were seen in the apartments, exorcism have been done.
3. My aunt live in Harlan in a place called "Ages" she became very ill with cancer and lost her battle 10 years ago. But only 4 years ago my own daughter 8 at the time, would come to me saying she See's a women in the back yard wanting my daughter to come outside. I thought she was just having some bad dreams. This went on for several weeks. Then one night, I was outside with my kids and took a few pictures and this is what I captured. Look at the pictures and see for your self, I enlarged them so you can see them close-up. After seeing these pictures I was a little freak-out, I didn't want to ask my daughter a lot of questions because she was scared enough, but a few days later when I was going through some pictures I came across my aunts picture and my daughter went crazy "Dad that is her" That's the women I see. She always wants me to come outside, she always motions for me to open the door to come out. This sent a cold chill down my spine. How in the world can my daughter, who never knew my aunt, be so familiar wit her? I knew my aunt would never hurt anyone but for some reason my daughter was and still is very afraid of her. Now Selena (my daughter) 12 years old, still remembers her and doesn't want to talk about the events that happened 4 years ago.
