Travel Tips for Berea

Berea Welcome Center

by Stephen-KarenConn

There is so much to see and do in this small town which offers a blend of Appalachian culture and Southern charm. It makes a perfect weekend getaway, or a stop on a longer trip, especially for those traveling through Kentucky on I-75. To be sure you learn of all the interesting opportunities here, stop first at the Berea Welcome Center. It is housed in the old L&N Railroad Depot, in the center of Old Town.

To find it take Exit #76 off I-75 and turn east. This is Chestnut Street. In about a mile you will see the sign on the left pointing to Old Town. The Depot is a few blocks down on the left.

Concerts in old town

by Krumlovgirl

Lately they’ve started hosting concerts in Old Town on the front porch of the log house. (Used to dance in that house as a child when it belonged to someone.) A couple of weeks ago they had a fiddle concert made up of children. It was really cute. My friends the Freedom Riders will play there in October and between then and now they’ll have some bluegrass, gospel, and other kinds of music. There isn’t really a set schedule for me to post, but it seems like they mostly occur on Saturdays.

Berea Ghosts

by Little_Lou_Lou

"Boone Tavern"

Berea - Berea College - Boone Tavern Hotel - Once a part of the under ground rail road. The basement had several rooms that were used use hide runaway slaves and for other purposes. Voices can sometimes be heard, and on more than one occasion a photograph of a young African American boy was taken. He appeared to be frightened and about 12 years of age. I have heard this one several times but have not seen any photographic evidence nor experienced it first hand.

Todd is the proprietor of Something Olde Antique Mall, a Chestnut Street business that is also home to Twice Sold Tales, a used bookstore. Since Twice Sold Tales opened up on the second floor of her building, Todd says it may have become home to what she jokingly calls her friendly literary ghost
