I've been on ghost tours, vampire tours, voodoo, cemetary, New Orleans, Key West, Savannah, St. Augustine ... This was the best experience of all. The home has a long and significant history. Katie was amazing and funny and friendly. The dousing rods were the real deal. Most ghost tours tell tragic stories and unexplained events. These spirits were present and... More

First, the mansion is a beauty, so either arrive early to walk thru on your own self guided tour, or you can break from the group "early", but if you are really looking for Spirits tour, this is interesting and interactive. Dowsing rods are passed in the group (while in the basement), time for questions with Antoine, a young slave... More

I have been to Wickland twice, once with a small school group, and the second time with my wife to experience Spirits of Wickland. It is a beautiful and historic old home that is worth the visit. Dixie Hibbs is an historian and former mayor of Bardstown and leads the tours. Our evening last October was led by Dixie and... More

My husband and I visited Wickland Estates one evening when we attended the 2013 Kentucky Music Week in Bardstown during week of June 10th. We appreciate older homes with historical significance. The spirits were an added incentive to attend. We arrived at 8:00 PM as directed. There were no exterior lights and no directional signs telling us which building or... More

Considered one of the best Federal-style houses in KY, a walk through this mansion is topped off with a psychic medium who helps communicate with the spirits of Wickland. Michael Wilhite and Dixie Hibbs led our group through a 90 minute parnormal family-friendly tour. We enjoyed our evening, a real treat!

I returned to Bardstown and joined my siblings for the evening tour and was pleased to find that THE local historian was part of the mix. It was very low key with lots of time for questions but not for someone looking for fast-paced excitement or cheap thrills. Dixie (the historian) and our medium (one of a set of twins)... More

I came to this site to see what others say about the Spirit Tour, not planning to review it, but when I saw a negative review, I had to add an endorsement of Wickland on Friday nights - surely one of the best-kept secrets in Kentucky. I've been twice this year, and if I lived near Bardstown, I would go... More

I don't know if the twins whom are part of this are psychic or not,but I,as well as a couple of others got the feeling that they would have rather been any where but the Wickland mansion.The mansion itself is gorgeous,but nearly empty of any furnishings save for some quilts that were for sale.The night we went the crowd was...

Fun experience using mediums and a historian for fact checking. Worth the time and effort. Whatever you believe about spirits, you'll learn something here as Dixie Hibbs the historian paints a picture of the house in its heyday with the help of the mediums for dramatic effect.
