The Spirits of Bourbon Country…

by admin on June 27, 2010

Set in historic Bardstown, Kentucky, “The Spirits of Bourbon Country” is a film delving into the history and ghost stories of three of Kentucky’s most famous haunts; The Chapeze House, The Jailer’s Inn & The Old Talbott Tavern.

Bardstown has earned the title “The Bourbon Capital of the World” by being the heart of the country’s bourbon industry. Nelson county and surrounding areas are home to many of the world’s most famous whiskey and bourbon distilleries.

Spirits of a distilled nature aren’t the only spirits that call Bardstown home. Being the second oldest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Bardstown is full of rich American history.

The Old Talbott Tavern has accommodated many American figures, such as Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Boone and infamous outlaw Jesse James. Bullet holes in the walls of his favorite room, some say, are not the only part of James that stays behind at the Talbott.

Next door at the old Nelson County Jail, now known as the ‘Jailer’s Inn,’ guests have reported hearing screams coming from the old cell block. Others have had a full conversation with the ghost of a former inmate in the courtyard, only to hear him talk of his hanging over a hundred years ago!

Just down the street is the Chapeze House built in 1787. After the battle of Perryville during the Civil War, many large homes in Bardstown were used as make-shift hospitals. The Chapeze House was no exception. Today reports of doors slamming throughout the second floor of the house are common. However, there are no longer any doors on the entryways of any of the rooms!

The history behind the stories is unveiled…the first hand encounters are told by those who experienced it and nationally known paranormal researcher Patti Starr investigates for evidence of the ‘Spirits of Bourbon Country’.
