hey guys, I am a HUGE paranormal believer and fan; I have had many encounters with ghosts and all growing up here in tennessee.If u ever google "haunted palces in tennessee" shadowlands has the best resource accourding to state about haunted palces; especially Palmyra, The headless Statues, which are now gone but it makes the place at night even more creepier....i know for a fact this place is haunted due to hearing disembodied voices, seeing red eyes....and hearing what sounds like wind going through a hole in a tree, when no wind is blowing

I live near Baxter, TN and have heard several local ghost stories - some handed down through my family. I graduated from Upperman High School and walked past the tombstones of the Braswell brothers almost every day.

Where is the Macedonia Church located in the Bangham Community? The Macedonia area and the Bangham area are both located in Putnam County, but are several miles apart.
Actually you can find a lot of information on George (Teek) and Joseph (Joe) Brassell and their hangings in the book. The Brassell Hangings by Donald E. Spurlock.. he was my teacher in high school at old upperman high school ( now cornerstone middle school) in baxter where the brassell brothers are burried. I read this book when I was in school. Very good read. Good luck.

Looks like Harriman wants to "scare" up - I know, I know - some cash by playing up the 121-year-old Temperance Building's haunted past with the goal of revitalization. My days of interest in these things didn't carry past my preteen summer camp days but downtown restoration has been built on stranger things.

Metropolis, IL and their statue of Superman comes to mind. Worked for me...I stopped and got a picture taken there.

I think if you Google "Western State Mental Health Institute-Bolivar,Tennessee" you will find a link to the haunted hospital.

The cemetery on Copper Ridge Road in Powell Tn. Also Copper Ridge Baptist Church in Powell (Knoxville) Tn. These are not the same location, though some have confused them as being. The cemetery has some weird things going on for sure. Dark images, low pitched voices, mist which at times will seem to follow you around the property. The cemetary has graves dating back to the early 1800s. Been reports of satanic rituals being held there a while back. I'm telling you...SOMETHING IS GOING ON WITH THAT PLACE!

On the other hand, Knoxville has tons of places reported as being haunted. One being The University of Tennessee. Multiple buildings are supposed to be haunted. Makes sense being that one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles (The Battle of Fort Sanders) was hel on what's now part of campus. Also the Bijou Theater downtown Knoxville, along with Baker Peters Jazz Club out in West Knoxville.

Oak Ridge has the Wheat Community. There's stories about The George Jones Church and cemetary in this area. But I'm skeptical about the church story being that it resembles that of many "haunted church stories". But I do believe in the area as a whole being haunted. The Wheat Community is the site of an African burial ground where 90 graves are. This area also known for the Gallaher Stone Plantation where slaves were held and also buried. Take that history into consideration along with the fact that MULTIPLE murders have been committed in this area. To top it off, this area was taken over by the government in the 1940s for the Manhattan Project running people off the land, leaving it abandoned. I've heard numerous stories and have every last reason to believe this place to be haunted.

I know people like to fantasize with stories and they get out of hand. Especially the ones where it supposedly happens at certain places at certain times (ex. Midnight/haloween). I don't believe most of those stories and find most not to be true. I think spirits are free spirits and are apt to perform there stunts at random times. But rest assured, I believe in paranormal activities. In fact, I know for a fact that things are out there.
