    It would be a stretch to say I am a believer in ghost. I could see the logic of "earth energies" manifesting as visual or audio occurrences plus the stories presented in LaGrange by honest people, some pillars of the community, gives their stories a degree of creditability. There are many in this town that are 100% convinced of the presence of paranormal activity. The local history center has a guided ghost tours each weekend staring September and continuing through October and they are usually sold out.
    The Spirits of LaGrange Ghost Tour, a 1 ½-2 hour lantern-lit walking tour will take you inside locations with about eight stops along the way for a distance of 12 blocks.
    The tours run every Friday and Saturday evening September through the end of October, plus Halloween Night. The tour leaves from the Oldham County History Center located at 106 North Second Avenue (right across from Courthouse Square). The reservation line is: 502-291-1766. Come early, browse the shops and have dinner at one of the fine restaurants in the Historic District. The CSX Railroad runs down the middle of main street with the restaurants and shops on either side. Since there are 30 trains a day you are sure to see 1 or 2.

    This museum houses a large collection of memorabilia and artifacts preserving the history of Oldham county. The present name of the museum is Peyton Samuel Head Museum (sometimes called Riley-Head Museum) and it is run by a trust fund from the Head Estate.

    There are new exhibits weekly and many display cases with momentos of interest to local historians. My wife loves to browse through all this "stuff". It is the same thing that drives her to hit every antique shop. To me, it is just old stuff although I am sometimes interested in the quality of some of the very old images (being an ex-Kodak person).

    from the ads:
    "Permanent Displays....
    Celebrating our Cultural Heritage: Oldham County's English Immigrants.
    Freemasonry and the Eastern Star (possible dedication of church) .
    Key Ingredients: America by Food, Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit.
    Ruth Klingenfus Quilt Collection.
    Oldham County Barns: Paintings of local barns by Ann Carter."
    see the website below for other exhibits.

    Cracker Barrel Old Country Store in LaGrange

    This "Old Country Store" restaurant is quite unique. You can enjoy a nice meal in their restaurant, and/or, enjoy some shopping in their store! Best of both Worlds really.

    When we were there, due to Christmas being only a week away, there were plenty of Christmas decorations, etc, available.

    We had my farewell breakfast here, and it was absolutely delicious. It's such a cosy place, with nice old wooden furnishings, fireplace and nice 'ole Kentucky charm!

    I had pancakes with ice-cream (the ice-cream bit is not on the menu, but I asked for it and they kindly oblidged). I didn't realise pancakes and ice-cream is not so much a big thing in the USA. Did I teach them a new recipe? Hmm, yummmmmmm. We'll see. I also had eggs, bread, etc... yes, I was very hungry! ;)

    When you leave, you can pay for your meal and shopping all together!

    Favorite Dish: What I had, eggs, bread, pancakes with ice-cream and the blueberry syrup... oh so yummy!

    Even though a train runs daily through the middle of La Grange, it doesn't stop here. It serenely moves through town at 10mph and then picks up speed and continues on its way to deliver goods to/from Louisville.

    But in the good old days, the train was an important passenger mover from Kentucky to Indiana and one of the original depots is still present and in excellent condition.

    It is located right where Main Street changes to Jericho road (just east of the Oak Avenue intersection).

    spring near washington and 2nd

    The whole town of La Grange was originally build near a fresh water spring. You might say that the town sprung from the spring!. Well that original spring is still gushing but not as prominent as it was long ago.
    It is on a little side street with city buildings and a gate but you can see it from an adjacent street.
    In the accompanying picture it is near the intersection of Washington Street and 2nd Avenue.
    It is private property (government property) so we just slowly drove by to have a look.
