Stay Away From The Most Haunted Street Near Nashville After Dark Or You May Be Sorry
If you find yourself walking down Hales Bar Road, you may want to bring a friend. Or a couple of friends. Or maybe never walk down it at all. Because that hulking building, dark and looming against the moonlit sky? Is one of the most terrifying places in all of Tennessee. Get ready for a ghost story…
Have you ever heard of this place, maybe seen it before? Hales Bar Dam and Marina is located on the Tennessee River, about half an hour West of Chattanooga. It's also COMPLETELY haunted.
First, some history. The Hales Bar dam was built in 1905 in order to improve shipping on the river and to produce hydroelectric power for the region. There are many Tennesseans nowadays that remember working here at one point, or have good memories about the way it once was.
Many say that the dam disrupted a whirlpool in the river that local Native Americans considered sacred, so they put a curse on the dam. Since then, many people have reported sightings of ghostly figures dressed in Native American clothing in the water and in the halls of the old power house.
Maybe one of the creepiest apparitions to walk Hales Bar Road is the recurring apparition of a young girl in a pink dress who is thought to have been killed at the dam. We wouldn't want to see HER late at night...
Is this a photograph of a real ghost...? It's up to you.
The dam was eventually replaced by the Nickajack Dam in 1967 because the Hales Bar Dam was discovered to have cracks in the foundation. Perhaps the Native American's exacting their revenge for disrupting their lands?
Today, Hales Bar Tours & Paranormal offers history tours of the dam's facilities during the day, but at night they offer ghost hunting tours. They even have occasional "overnight investigations" where you can search for paranormal activity all night.
