Visitor Tips and News About Ghostly Image in a Window
I tried really hard to see the image. I even used my Nikon binoculars from several angles. I was concentrating on the third floor "house left" window (on the upper right when facing the house). I saw some sort of wispy something on the glass, but could never make out a shape. In any case, it's a nice stop. Access is from exit 95 off of I-75, but my iPhone gps persistently tried to take me through an inaccessible gate on the south end of the estate.[Greg, 04/06/2010]
South of Lexington, at Clay's Ferry is Whitehall Mansion, historic home of the Clay Family. It's a state shrine now. In the upper right hand window of the three story house is a permanent (some say) imprint of a black slave woman's face and torso, as if she's looking out at something. Tried several times to get a photo of the reflection or imprint without any luck, but saw it myself.[Mike Steely, 05/06/1998]
