Ghosts of Tennessee

Tennessee has many ghosts and hauntings, but it may be best known for the Bell Witch.

The “Bell Witch” is actually a ghost.  That ghost even frightened off President Andrew Jackson. Fleeing, after the ghost threw furniture at him, Jackson said, “I wish no more dealings with that torment.”

The original Bell Witch may have been one or several spirits. Today, at least one of them lingers and terrifies people who visit the Bell Witch Cave. It was originally on the property of John Bell’s farm.
