Stay Away From Tennessee’s Most Haunted Street After Dark Or You May Be Sorry
Sensabaugh Tunnel has been given a bad rap by the folks of Tennessee, and for good reason. It’s the location of one of the most rampant hauntings in the state. Really – the stories that have spawned from this place are extensive and downright chilling. We’re going to show you the very spot where each supposed event occurred, but if you decide to visit? That’s completely on you.
Best of luck, ghost hunters!
Kingsport, Tennessee is beautiful east Tennessee hamlet. Most of the city lies in Sullivan County, with the city of over 50,000 sitting pretty in the roiling greenery of the surrounding forests and valleys.
There's a darker side to Kingsport, however. A ghost story that has spanned almost a century, dredged from the hearts of east Tennesseans that don't come close to Sensabaugh Hollow Road. And for good reason.
Sensabaugh Tunnel was built in the 1920's on land owned by the Sensabaugh family, predominantly Ed Sensabaugh. Rumors of terrifying tales and experiences down by and in the tunnel began almost immediately. Some said they heard phantom sounds, crying babies and footsteps that belonged to no one. Some say a homeless man broke into the Sensabaugh home and stole money, jewels and the most precious thing they had: their child. Ed was said to have chased the man to the tunnel, where the thief tossed the child to his death in the river beside it. That's enough heartache to make for a ghost, wouldn't you say?
Others say that Ed was the murderer. A man who forever walks the earth after murdering his whole family in their beds, then taking his own life in the seclusion of the tunnel. Another legend concerns a young woman who was chased out of her home and gave birth in the tunnel, both her and the child expiring before morning. It's her child that is said to scream through the night, inconsolable.
The last story we've heard was that of a young woman whose car stalled on one side of the tunnel, and she ventured through to the other side in search of help. Yep, you guessed it - no one saw her again. Alive, anyway. She may be one of the ghosts that is said to haunt the place, the road, the tunnel.
What an eerie experience, hey? SensabaughTunnel is quite the wild ride, one that you may not want to drive down by yourself…
Shake the creepy off with a visit to one of these
amazing, hidden Tennessee oases. They’re so gorgeous you’ll want to move!
