You're right! Lived here my whole life (almost 46 years), and been scared the whole time!

Let us know where you decide to check out!
I've been to the tunnel and 5 caves! We would always go as teens and turn off the car at midnight to see if we could hear the witch laughing. We never did, but it was still creepy. The story behind Rotherwood is a good one too.
Also, supposedly there is a ghost in the old library building at ETSU.
Nice thread and great stories, OneKEighty!

alley cat, hello I am new to this blog. I am looking for help with my sons "imaginary friend" But I just wanted to reply that when I first moved here, we stayed at the Reed House, and I have seen the lady and the soldier. I did not know it wass haunted when we decided to stay their, just thought it was a great location, and a nice hotel untill we found a house!

Hello how are you today, I was just posting to say that in the Reed House, it is not room 311, this is the room that the Hotel tell's people that the murder of the lady occured. The actual room is 309, they try to rent this room out, but everytime, she will flood the room, cave in the roof..... I found the room on my own, and then a maid at the hotel told me a little more. The room was locked from the inside, with the latch, not a key, and dust was covering the door way. You could feel the sadness when you put your hand on the door. The whole third floor of the Reed house is very "active"

You seem to know a lot of history of the area. I was wondering if you could tell me anything about the Dean family Farm land in CHattanooga Tn. It is off of 153 on the CHicamunga dam. Additionally about a little girl named "Saddie" ?

The creepiest thing just happened to me when I read the post on page 2 about the guy's girlfriend getting creeped out in the Confederate battlefield. I got that tingly "someone walked on your grave" sensation all over my body, and then it went on and on like waves of creepy tingles that lasted for over 30 seconds. I've never experienced that before. I am officially creeped out!

Shadow, if you are talking about the Chickamauga Battlefield I have a cute story for you. Soon after we started this post, my little man and I decided to go haunt that "haint" late one night. We packed up our weapons (a Garfield garden shovel and a flashlight) and took off. The moon was full and it was CREEPY! There is one stretch of road that is straight and I turned off my headlights as we proceeded towards the tower. We saw a small feral black cat @ the railroad tracks and the little fella got so scared he wouldn't turn his head towards the window lol I asked him if he was frightened and he said, "No Mom, I have my hard karate ready to protect you." We didn't see ol green eyes but it was quite an event. Since then we have climbed the tower a couple of times, during the day of course. I will look for those infamous blood stains next time.
