McLean House - Bardstown, KY

McLean House - Bardstown, KY

Built by brothers, Samuel and Hector McLean in 1812, to be used for office and rental purposes. In 1840 the Post Office, a newspaper office and later a chair manufacturer would use the building. This house is on the Bardstown town square along with the more famous Talbott Inn. Based on an internet search, I can't tell if this is currently run as a hotel or as apartments. When I took the photo in the summer of 2010, much of the town square was under construction. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Bardstown Historic District.

If your into ghosts and the paranormal, many people say this is haunted after many Civil War soldiers lost their life here when the home was being used as a hospital. There are many stories of people who stayed in the house to be awakened by the sounds of moaning and weeping.
