Harlan County Kentucky
Carl Farmer

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.

                                                   The Stanley Hotel


Now lets take you West, Colorado is our next stop. We have all seen the movie "The Shinning" right? The Stanley Hotel is said to be one of the best place to visit for ghost sightings. These pictures were taken by a guest staying there. Once She seen the photo's she was amazed! not believing anyone would believe the photo's were real she had them analyzed to prove they were not tampered with, Indeed they were proven to be real, Look for yourself.

Now, here is a closer look, it is amazing how she captured this photo. To me it looks like the owner MR. Freelan Oscar Stanley himself. Which by the way is said to still walk the halls and ballroom of the Stanley hotel. His wife "Flora" still plays the piano in the ballroom to this day, her playing has been heard many times though out recent years at the Stanley.

It is told that Lord Dunraven is one of the ghost to be haunting the hotel, particularly room 401 and 407.

Children were not allowed to stay at the hotel but, ghostly apparitions of children are said to be seen on the 4th floor of the Stanley. Why wasn't kids allowed at this hotel? and why are sightings of them playing on the 4th floor? We may never know but one thing for sure. the Stanley Hotel is a must to add to your to do list. All I can tell you is, there have been a number of death at the Hotel.

Delbert Grady worked at the Hotel as a Caretaker, in 1972 he took his wife and 2 daughters ages 6 and 8 to say there with him, shortly after he developed cabin fever, Delbert brutally murdered his family with an axe before taking his own life with a shotgun. Delbert is said to be seen in the dining room of the hotel.

Lorraine Massey dated a younger college student leaving her husband back in New York, her husband was a hot shot attorney who never knew about the affair. Mrs Massey would spend a lot of time with the younger man at the Overlook of the hotel, One day the man left, never to return. Mrs Massey stayed in Room 217 (in the movie it said room 237 but the real room was 217) distraught Mrs Massey got into the bath tub and took a whole bottle of sleeping pills taking her own life. She is said to still haunt room 217

Horace Derwent a millionaire invested money into the Overlook of the Stanley Hotel in 1940, MR. Derwent died in the Ballroom of the hotel, it is said he still haunts this room today. Cause of death Unknown.
