The Rotherwood Mansion, off Netherland Road, is said to be haunted by a young woman who died in the river that runs beside the mansion. Her father, a wealthy land owner, frowned on her love with a soldier, and forbade them ever to see each other. One night before going to war, however, the young soldier came to see his lover. The woman's brother found them, fought the young soldier, and threw him in the river. The soldier was then swept away with the current. Heartbroken, the women, threw herself.
Now on foggy, full moon nights, people have reported 2 things. They said they saw a woman in a wedding dress in her room window, crying and they saw a woman in a wedding dress rushing down Holston River.
