Old Louisville, one of the largest Victorian neighborhoods in the United States, is more than just a collection of beautiful houses and gardens. According to many residents, it also boasts various ghosts and apparitions of all ages and temperaments. In his collection Ghosts of Old Louisville, David Dominé introduces some of them, including such characters as the Lady of the Stairs, who waits forever for her lost lover; a mischievous poltergeist named Lucy who inhabits Dominé's own home; and a playful little girl known as Rose who probably perished from tuberculosis. Whether you believe in otherworldly spirits or not, their tales provide absorbing and spooky reading—plus intriguing history about several specific Old Louisville locations and a fascinating glimpse of daily life around the turn of the 20th century.
