The Bell Witch Cave - 430 Keysburg Road, Adams
Known as one of the most haunted spots in America, the legendary Bell Witch Cave supposedly even gave President Andrew Jackson a run for his money. The farm was the location of a severe poltergeist haunting, one that is said to have killed owner John Bell. Curious about the whole story? You'll have to take a trip up there!
Cragfont Museum House - 300 Cragfont Road, Castalian Springs
Once the greatest house situated west of the Appalachian Mountain range, Cragfont is said to be overrun with the ghosts of Civil War soldiers, whether wearing blue or grey uniforms. Previous owner James Winchester has been seen walking the grounds in the middle of the night, while some believe it may be his wife whose love for her home overcomes the grave.
Two Rivers Mansion - 3130 McGavock Pike, Nashville
Tucked away in suburban Donelson, Two Rivers has had many reported occurences of items disappearing, lights flickering and foot steps in the upper halls. Said to be built on a Native American burial ground, the supernatural energy level is purportedly very high.
Ryman Auditorium - 116 5th Ave, Nashville
The mother church of country music has quite a few supernatural inhabitants. Hank Williams, Sr. is found in the back rooms, preparing for a ghostly performance, and the creepiest reporting? The Gray Man. Many find him sitting in the balcony during rehearsals - but you'll never find him during a show. Thomas Ryman makes the occasional appearance, as well. Plus? You can take a tour that explains it all!
Union Station Hotel - 1001 Broadway, Nashville
The luxury hotel is in what used to be the town's main train station, and it is said you can find the victims of Tennessee train accidents walking the halls. There is also a young woman who stands on the train platform, waiting to throw her broken hearted self onto the tracks. Shivers all over the place, guys - we won't be staying the night.
Tennessee State Prison - 100 Bomar Boulevard
The main location for the Tennessee incarcerated is found in West Nashville, and is where the state used to house the electric chair known as "Ol' Sparky." Although no longer open to the public, you can make a solid drive-by with this one. It's huge, creepy, and you simply CAN'T miss it. Just be careful of the wandering prisoners that are said to walk the once rambling, manicured grounds...
