Graham Brown, lived in the hotel’s penthouse until his death in 1969. Many believe he’s still there. He’s been seen standing in the mezzanine watching guests and employees. He is said to leave behind the smell of cigar smoke. Brown is most frequently seen during the hotel’s busiest time – the Kentucky Derby.

The Palace opened in 1928 and is believed to be home to a number of spirits. The ghost of a projectionist is believed to reside in the projection booth, playing with women’s hair and shoving men. Ferdinand Frisch was an employee who died in the theater in 1965. Numerous people have reported seeing him throughout the theater since then. Giggling children have also been heard.
The Seelbach Hilton Hotel
The Seelbach Hilton Hotel was built in 1905 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and served as the setting for Daisy and Tom’s wedding in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”
The hotel is said to be haunted by the Blue Lady, known in life as Patricia Wilson. She was waiting in the hotel for her husband when she learned of his accidental death. She threw herself 10 stories down the elevator shaft.
Staff and guests have reported seeing a lady dressed in blue who disappears as they approach her. Remaining is the aroma of perfume.
