There is a side of our town that is not often spoken of. The Dark Side. Russ Hatter’s back with his Murder and Mayhem Walking Tours every Thursday during October at 7:30 PM. Since October 31 is Halloween and a Thursday, that tour will be on Wednesday, October 30 instead. In a time-span from 1825 to 1909 there were some 30 murders that occurred in a four block area in downtown Frankfort. The tour visits the sordid sites of racial violence, mob rule hangings, shootouts and stabbings, including the assassinations of William Goebel and Solomon P. Sharp. Due to the graphic and gruesome content the tours are for adults only, 18 and over. Russ Hatter dons an early period 1900 Frankfort police uniform beginning at the Capital City Museum, winding his way with flashlight and billy-club through the alleys and streets of downtown Frankfort. The tours take place rain or shine, so if the skies are dark, bring your umbrella! Tickets are $10 and advance reservations are a must! For reservations call 502-696-0607 or email [email protected] Happy Halloween!
