One afternoon, a perfectly clear afternoon, with no rain, the cast was on stage rehearsing, suddenly the lights dimmed on and off three times at differing periods of length, no more than a few seconds each time. it was clear, there was no reason for the electricity to go out, and no one was in the lighting booth, the lights simply seemed to go out on there own.

It is said that the slave still haunts the house and neighboring cemetery looking for his unborn child. I've been there myself and me and some other people were walking up to the house and light bluish/greenish light crept up the house. so of course we fled to where we were parked on the outside road. we got in the car and as we pulled off a wind of gravel hit the back window. the weird thing was we were on a paved road with no gravel in sight.

Clifton - Field behind the Public Library - There is a field behind the Public Library that if you go to between 8:00pm and 5:00am then you can sometimes see a white figure of a man moving around the field.  They say that the white figure is a man by the name of Rosco Young Blood who buried his money in the field back in the 1950's and still roams the field trying to find his money that he buried there.

 

Collinwood - Park in the center of town - Many of the old folks in Collinwood tell of a tree in the park where slaves were hanged during the slave days. They say that if you walk through the park on stormy nights that all of the trees will be moving from the wind blowing through the branches and leaves- except one.

Cragfont - The Winchester house - built from 1798 and completed 1802. General James Winchester was a hero of the revolution, a Tennessee pioneer, and one of the founders of Memphis, Tennessee. Cragfont has reopened for the season. I can attest to strong energy levels in the master bedroom and the nursery, as well as a few other areas of the house. Be sure to stop by on a Sunday and ask Joanne for the "ghost tour."

 

Crossville - Mile Marker Ten - it has been said that if one puts their vehicle in neutral when you get to the hill your vehicle will be pushed up it. When you get out their will be handprints on the back of the vehicle.  The reason is because a bus broke down with a load of kids and a semi came over the hill and hit them killing them all. The reason you are pushed over the hill is to get you out of the way of on coming traffic.

He'll follow you around for a while because he is just so glad of your company, and will wave from the top of the cemetery as you leave. His name is listed in the records at the Surrender House.

The story behind the light is that a local was out walking the track and was run over by a speeding train. His body parts was scattered for 150 yards.

Floor of the building.  This is hard to accurately describe, since no one who was working there at the time cares to elaborate on any details from this event, but all that was gathered is that the boy scout leader had apparently gone crazy and killed some of the scouts before being caught.  When the building was closed for the winter one year (Gatlinburg is a tourist town which is really only full for the summer and autumn months) an employee was making rounds through the building and stopped on the 7 th. Floor and heard running and screams he ran to check for intruders only to find nothing, no rooms were rented in the Tower that evening.

All survived except for a woman, who was wearing a red dress, and her child, on the forth floor. In the 1960's a fire broke out again, and once again the building was burned to the ground. Witnesses say they saw a lady standing in a forth floor window, wearing a red dress, shouting for help. The sounds of someone up the stairs to the forth floor can sometimes be heard still, and some still claim to see the lady run down the hall to her child’s room.

A former night cleaning staff working at night have heard his footsteps walking the upstairs hall when the place was supposed to be empty and another person has seen a figure lurking in the windows of the library on the second floor. The round structure was built with a lot of steel which might account for the nature of the sounds and haunting.

 

Hendersonville - Hendersonville High School - Stories go that Colonel Barry (who used to own the property) haunts the high school.  Staff and custodial staff often heard extra footsteps and the fire doors would open and shut, as if somebody opened them to walk through.  A teacher was once sitting in the bleachers watching cheerleading practice below and she heard (and felt) footsteps coming up to her, but nobody was there.  She called practice off and refused to go in the bleachers at night.

There is a little drive off of the side road (it is a dirt road) that goes back into fields, but on each side there is lots of tress, but now they keep it chained up. A lot of years ago, a man was hung down there and they say his spirit still haunts this place. When you drive down the road you have to go all the way until you come to a dead end.

Knoxville - Baker Peters Jazz Club - Baker Peters Jazz Club is a known haunted site in Knoxville. Now a trendy & expensive Jazz bar, it was once a Civil War era residence. The baseline of the story goes that the house was built by a Dr. James Harvey Baker. Dr. Baker's allegiances in the war are disputed; some have him on the side of the Confederates, others have him as neutral. Either way, he did have at least one son that we know of named Abner who fought staunchly for the Confederates (other versions have Dr. Baker with TWO sons on opposing sides of the war). During an invasion by the Union army in 1864, Dr. Baker was treating wounded Confederates in his home when the Union army arrived and demanded the surrender of the men in the house. Dr. Baker refused and barricaded himself and in his bedroom. The Yankees invaded the house, raced upstairs and shot him through the door. Upon returning home, 22 yr old Abner vowed revenge on the person who informed the Yankees that his father harbored Confederates. He did kill the informer, a postmaster, but was later killed by the informer's friends in a return act of revenge. Legend has it that Abner has refused to leave the house that he and his family fought so hard to retain. The house went through several changes of hands before becoming a jazz bar, which was likely very disrupting to whatever spirits are there. Baker Peters claims to have a framed photo of what looks like Abner's ghostly reflection posted somewhere in the restaurant. Other accounts report employees experiencing chills, hearing whispering, objects moving or being thrown from shelves and breaking, and even (in the early days) discovering a hanging candelabra in a dining room with the candle holders twisted downward.

People who have worked late in the office have been known to hear a struggle between a man and a woman and then a silence. Persons living across the street from the block company in the house formerly owned by the secretary have reported the presence of a woman who could be described as looking like Mr. Vaughn's secretary.

Walk closer and you’ll see a grayish, dead-looking hand reaching out from a shadowy tent. Step closer still and the hand will go in the tent. And the body attached to it will come out. It is obviously the dead body of a young boy with no legs.

Other stories include sightings of five strange-looking "people" walking alongside Billy Hollow RD. But when you turn around and go back to get a better look, there is no one around, and nowhere that they could have disappeared to so suddenly, unless they simply vanished.

Then just as you start to panic, your car roars to life once again. Yet another unexplained incident in Tennessee's ghostly history.
