You’ll Never Believe What Terrifying Thing Happened In This Tennessee Town

It’s very likely you haven’t heard of Jeremiah Lexer. As a wealthy east Tennessee plantation owner and one of the original settlers in Hamblen County – largely attributed to one of the founding members of Talbott – it would have been easy for him to fade into the tapestry of Tennessee history, merely another distinguished man with a bit of a dark side. That is, if he hadn’t committed the unthinkable in July of 1902, a day that gave him a name as one of the most prolific small town killers in history.


Here’s the thing: we aren’t against haunted houses. We love them. But if they’re the former homes of wicked serial killers…? We may have to rethink that. *gulp* Would you go?!
