Louisville, KY -- The Spirit Ball, a Victorian-inspired masquerade, is the annual fundraiser for the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum. The evening begins in the mansion's grand foyer at 7 p.m.

Throughout the evening, ghosts guests will wander the three floors of the mansion to visit the palmist and tarot card reader, have their faces painted, socialize, and bid competitively for a coveted auction item. Guests will enjoy solo musicians scattered throughout the house, a champagne toast, plentiful appetizers, a jazz ensemble with dancing, an open bar and bourbon tasting.

The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum is open to the public year-round for tours and special-events. When it was built in 1895, locals named it "Conrad's Castle."  This turreted richly carved stone Richardsonian-Romanesque mansion remains a treasure-among-treasures in Old Louisville.

Victorian Homes Magazine (August 2011) described the mansion as a "design template," for homeowners who seek "a bit of formality, elegance, refined craftsmanship and a respect for decorative arts."

Author David Dominé will host the gala event. Dominé's popular ghost books and tours have enlivened the historical, architectural, and paranormal features of Old Louisville.

The ticket price is $150. Proceeds from ticket sales and auction purchases go directly to the operation of the mansion.
