Real experiences at some of Tennessee's most infamous haunted locations.
A Chattanooga Hotel: Known for the spirit of a beheaded prostitute killed in the late 1800's by a lonely soldier during a time when the hotel lobby was used as a triage for wounded and dying soldiers during the Civil War. Many believe guests have checked in but never checked out. Our experience here may be the 'soul' reason I started researching ghost stories.
Oak Ridge, TN: The Old Guest House played a key role in the Manhattan Project, many important people stayed there. Witnesses have heard voices, footsteps and seen apparitions in this vacant building. Can the dead visit in the after-life?
Alcoa, TN: The Stone House was built to withstand the Armageddon and beyond, the original owners believed for as long as they built they would have eternal life. The sounds of banging, whispering and other noises have been heard even when the house was vacant and some have seen the apparition of an old man. Incredible story, incredible experiences.
Caryville, TN: A former coal mining town known as 'Red Ash' is home to an 8-10ft goat-man with a pentagram carved in his forehead "conjured" to protect the gated grave of an important forefather. A phantom train still runs the train rails tempting youthful thrill seekers to "race the ghost train" many have met disastrous fate adding even more casualties to an area known for death and ghosts. Long ago a man fell to his death from a coal tower where witnesses still hear his voice through the car radio and some have even seen his apparition take the lethal plunge on certain nights. These and more legends are a part of the incredible Red Ash legacy.
