"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Guyn's Mill,Woodford County

Guyn’s Mill was built circa 1850-1870 by William Rankin Guyn (1839-1927), adding on to the existing businesses the family owned. He was the grandchild of Robert Guyn (1744-1818) who was one of the first to settle this portion of the county. Over time, he helped to develop a bustling community, starting with a sawmill. William Guyn built the gristmill and blacksmith shop, operating them with the help of his brother Moses. Eventually, his children took over the two businesses, as the sawmill and general store, all owned by the Guyn family.The mill operated until 1920.

The old mill is allegedly haunted and if you look real close at the left of the building in the photo showing the creek you can see an apparition of an old man and to the right some see a little girl on a swing.The first photo shows the wooden cog wheel,beveled gearing and massive timber support framing in the basement of the old mill.

The B/W photos were taken in 1980

Located on Mundy's Landing/Pauls Mill Road near Troy,Kentucky of of KY 33.

This is the scariest place that I have ever been to. It is most definitely haunted. The photos that we took there show some strange, inexplicable orbs/apparitions. You really have to go there to understand the aura of this place.

I thought it was one of the most enchanting places, not haunted. I didn't get that vibe at all. There are ancient iris beds that have naturalized, and I can imagine the women who planted them over 100 years ago. There is a lot of love that still surrounds the place.
