Hey there, East Tennessee. Are you ready to get that hair standing straight up on your head? Because we've got a creeptastic road trip that's going to keep you from sleeping for weeks. Well, maybe not. But it's one of the neatest things we've seen this year so far...ready for a road trip through the winding, beautiful haunts of East Tennessee? Let's go!
Baker Peters House - Knoxville
Once upon a time, Baker Peters house was owned by Dr. Harvey Baker. He was killed by a group of Union soldiers way back when. His son, Abner, went on a killing spree after he found out his father had been killed in cold blood. He was murdered by a mob of enraged townfolk and is now the town haunt. Creepy thing? Other than the terrifying ghost that haunts the now restaurant, there are still bullet holes in the doors. Scary times...dessert, anyone?
Wheatlands Plantation - Sevierville
Haunted by Timothy Chandler, the Wheatlands Plantation is haunted as a result of a snub in the family will. The plantation was left to his son, John, who killed Timothy when he grew rabid with anger. There are still blood stains on the floor that no one has been able to remove - not with sanding, scrubbing, or painting. They are forever branded to the floor.
Mysterious Mansion - Gatlinburg
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Tennessee's original - PROFESSIONAL - haunted house. Walk through these doors and you have 35 years of scaring experience at your fingertips. It's a terrifying ride that secures a scare. Plus? It's open year 'round.
Gwendolyn's House - Elizabethton
A mysterious woman in white haunts Gwendolyn's House in Elizabethton, and though you'll not find a picture of it on the internet. No, search for the wailing lady with a broken heart on your own, down the backroads, through the gate to her forever home. She stands in the windows, forever watching the Tennessee valley before her.
Glenmore Mansion - Jefferson City
No one knows the full story to Glenmore Mansion. It's a hefty home of historic value set back from the road, a beautiful structure with dark secrets between the walls. At night? The attic light comes on. Unbidden, uninvited. It lights in the dark and spooks caretakers year 'round. You'll have to visit on your own to catch a glimpse.
