I ride through the Stones River battlefield by bicycle every single morning and evening. It can be an eerie place (especially the Slaughter Pen) but it is also beautiful. Almost daily I see many deer, turkeys, hawks, and other animals. It's a great place to watch nature. You're not supposed to be there after dark, but I will tell you that it is plenty creepy without light.

I don't believe in ghosts, but I do love reading about them. The same goes for Bigfoot, and Tennessee has some great Bigfoot stories! Nothing beats a good, scary story!

BTW, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Chapel Hill lights. My dad actually saw that one himself, though he doesn't believe it was anything supernatural. I've been there several times but never saw anything.

And I believe there have also been several ghost sightings by night watchmen at the State Museum in Nashville. I can easily see how that place would be creepy late at night. Especially with that mummy.

I would like to make a point of visiting them. I also want to someday get to Bodie, California for the same reason.


I think more so in places like Alabama and Mass, between the 'witch' era and the civil war. Occaisionally I watch the series 'A Haunting' which is based on actual lives of people who have experienced 'hauntings' (though I too, am not superstitious) but a small part of me tells me there could be some fact to some of the experiences.
There is a place near here in the high desert, where an abandoned house out in the middle of nowhere, that has been up for sale, hasnt sold for over 5 years. Stories of a murder that occurred in that house so that deters any potential lookies too. My friend and I have been wanting to go see what all the hype is about, but would go during the day and bring video recording with us as well. More so curious about that place though. Cant say it would be a 'ghost' sighting, but there might be something that only select few people can/have seen. Heck we used to live near a cometary where neighbours would claim to see things or have things in their houses moved around, but it never affected me.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned Black Mountain yet. I've hiked it quite a few times, sometimes by myself and it can be spooky. I always get weird feelings after I pass the tower (communication tower I presume). My son told me the kids (teenagers) camp out there and it scared the you know what out of him when he did it.
I heard from locals that there used to be hangings out there. It's part of the Cumberland Trail. I'm pretty sure it is within Cumberland County. You can access it from I-40 via Crab Orchard. There are a few other ways to get there, but this is the most direct.
