QUOTE=Wordy;584197]Oh, AWESOME. What a great story. Thanks, 180!!![/quote]

I'm glad you enjoyed the story. For as long as I can remember, I've had a fascination with history (especially local history) and with gost stories. Perhaps my love for a good "true" ghost story can be traced back to the day in 1967 when I was four or five years old, and I heard my mother and grandmother discussing a story in either the Herald or the Citizen ( the two papers didn't merge until about 1970, I believe). The story they were talking about dealt with the strange goings on at an old house occupied by a family who had summoned the sheriff's department one night after being terrorized in their home by a big hairy creature covered with warts. And their home was located only a couple of hundred yards from my house! That'll get your attention!
By the way, the name's OneKEighty (1 K 80). 180 is simply what I WISH that I weighed.

Well, Porter Waggoner scares me.

;-)

What's really stupid is one of the councilmen for Nashville once wanted to build a UFO landing pad . . . complete with a Welcome to Tennessee sign, I guess. I'm not kidding; it made national news. And people from California and New Jersey wonder if they'll be accepted. Hey, if we can welcome a slimy green alien with three eyes, we can surely put up with a Yankee.

You have to go to the battlefields in Stones River and Shiloh. You can almost feel them around you.

Here is a webpage I found interesting. I grew up in Kingsport, TN which is in the Northeast near the VA stateline. I have been to Sensebaugh Tunnel, 5 caves. Kingsport is also known for Rotherwood Mansion & some ghostly apparitions there. I love watching those Haunted America shows on the Travel channel.
Let us know where you decide to check out!

I just moved here to Dyersburg almost a year now. Is there any haunted places around here I should know about. I'm not scared or anything. I grew up around stuff like that. My grandma always told me she could talk to dead people. Don't know if she could or not, never actually seen it. But did see weird things when I stayed with her. So is there any haunted places around Dyersburg to visit
