Ghosts and Good Grub in Louisville, Eureka Springs, and all points in between.

Okay, so the traveling companion and I are planning to go looking for ghosts at Waverly Hills Sanitarium and at the Crescent Hotel in a month or so. We will be traveling between Louisville, Kentucky and Eureka Springs, Arkansas over the course of a couple of days. Mapquest insists that this journey is best made by looping north though St. Louis, but we are very interested in roads not taken, which would send us southwest-ish from Louisville. We have no schedule and don't mind back roads. The Hot Brown sandwich at the Brown Hotel in Louisville is a given, but does anyone know of any can't - miss stops in the neighborhood of Louisville or Eureka Springs? We could realistically detour through areas around Nashville or Little Rock, if there is a worthwhile foodie-destination...bonus points for any restaurant, hotel, B & B, or environs reputed to be haunted! (Yes, I know...what a ridiculous way for a couple of middle-aged broads to spend their time...we enjoy a good spookfest). I will be re-posting on the KY/TN board since we are traveling across a couple of chowhound board areas...
