Shimmers Ballroom and Tavern

We went to check out the haunted Shimmers Ballroom and Tavern. Before I start telling you about the history of this building, I wanted to let you know that it is no longer Shimmers  they are gone. 
This building has a long history of problems. During the prohibition they sold illegally alcohol. The mafia was also involved in some crime in the building. During an argument one time a man was killed in the basement. If you are from Kentucky or Ohio then you know who Jerry Springer is. He was once the mayor of Cincinnati. Well in the parking lot of this building is a hotel and at that hotel is where Jerry got busted with a prostitute while he was mayor. Now come on, you have to be pretty damn stupid to be the mayor and hire a prostitute. 
There are a few ghost at Shimmers. The basement is suppose to be the most haunted. People have reported seeing shadows of a person and then it will vanish. In the building people have seen objects moving by themselves like chairs and glasses.

The building is located at 1939 Dixie Highway. Ft. Wright, Ky.
