Caryville, TN - Red Ash Cemetery


  Someone saw an apparition of a man who had fallen off of them some 50 years ago, also in the office of the depot, reports of furniture moving itself and felt a presence of someone else in the room. Even reports of a train coming, when the railroad tracks have been defunct for nearly 50 years.

Caryville, TN - Red Ash Cemetery


There is a good 10 mile stretch in which several paranormal sightings have occurred. Witnesses report a red half human, half goat figure that was nearly 8 feet tall with a pentagram in its forehead. As they sped away, they had to cross a set of railroad tracks. Directly in front of them, there was a strange blue light that was hovering over the railroad tracks. It was about 10 feet wide.

Bumpass Cove, TN - Devil's Run

Devil's Run
by John F. Blair, Publisher
Perhaps the most unsettling tale about the Nolichucky [River] concerns a spooky stretch of river near Bumpass Cove and the former town of Poleville, a mining area since the late eighteenth century. Occasionally, witnesses hear the pounding of hooves along the bank, but no horse or rider appears. Furthermore, there is no clear path along the river on which a person might ride. The whole bank is covered with dense, tangled undergrowth and is quite impassable. Yet the sound is often heard on moonlit nights. At first, it is far off in the distance, then it steadily rises as it approaches, then it passes by the listener and recedes in the distance. Only a glimpse of a black, shadowy form can be seen.
Over the years, there has been much speculation over the source of the sound. Some think it is the ghost of an Indian riding to warn his brethren of approaching white soldiers. Others have blacker thoughts about the origin of the sound. For them, the most blood-thirsty warrior would be no match for the evil spirit that regularly runs the banks of the Nolichucky.
The story of the haunting of Bumpass Cove began to surface in the 1920s. Residents along the river would hear the sound of hoof beats coming toward them in the middle of the night, peer out of their windows, and see a black shadow moving along the bank at terrific speed. Then, as quickly as the apparition appeared, it would be gone. For a long time, residents tried to discover the source of the disturbance. Finally they gave up and assumed that what they were seeing and hearing was a ghost. Since the haunt confined itself to the riverbank, most residents felt they had nothing to fear. But as in every community infested with a ghost, there were those who were bound and determined to solve the mystery.
One Saturday night, a group of men, well into their cups, decided to go down to the river and wait for the phantom horseman to appear. Certain they were dealing with no ghosts, the men arrived armed with ropes they intended to use to trip the horse and spill its rider. One man even had a gun and was talking of shooting the rider out of the saddle. As the evening wore on, the men got drunker. It was a beautiful night, Moonbeams reflected like gems on the water. Finally, at about ten o'clock, hoof beats were heard in the distance.
Quickly the men began stretching the rope along the ground, tying one end to a scrub tree at the water's edge and extending the rope back about thirty feet from the river. They pulled it taut, hoping that the horse's hocks would become entangled and that both horse and rider would fall in a tangled heap.
They waited. The sound of hoof beats came nearer, but the horse was not yet in sight. Noting the thick growth of bushes along the water's edge, the men wondered how a horse could run with such obstacles blocking its path.
In an instant, the hoof beats were upon them--then passed by. The rope suddenly stretched like something had hit it at great speed. All the men holding it were upended and sprawled on the ground, enmeshed in prickly briars. The hoof beats receded in the distance as the men picked themselves up, cursing and pulling thistles from their overalls.
One of the men, perhaps the most sober of the group, ran down to the water's edge. Briars and undergrowth were spread on the ground like a tangled carpet. Nothing could have possibly passed unimpeded. But the bushes were not even broken.
Suddenly, someone gave a yell and pointed to the ground. There in the moonlight, beneath one particularly scrubby specimen of undergrowth, was a hoof print--then another and another. The men gathered around, gawking at the discovery. Something really had gone by, avoided their trap, and left a visible record of its passing. Their first impulse was to congratulate themselves on solving the mystery--ghosts don't leave hoof prints, so their "ghost" was obviously no ghost at all.
Then someone noticed something odd about the prints. They were much smaller than that of a horse, and not rounded like a horse's. The prints were about the size of a goat's, and they were cloven!
When the men realized what they were looking at, they fled back to their homes as fast as their legs could carry them. This was no ghost who ran the banks of the Nolichucky River--it was the devil himself!
Phantom hoof beats are still heard along the Nolichucky, but after that night, no one ever dared to find out who or what was making the racket. From that night onward, the little stretch of the Nolichucky River at Bumpass Cove has been known as "Devil's Run."

Bristol, TN - Weaver Cemetery


     Weaver Cemetery is located in Sullivan County, TN, just outside of Bristol. It's associated with Weaver Union Church, a quaint little country church.
     Weaver Cemetery is ancient, and is one of the oldest cemeteries in the state. Not surprisingly, it's said to have gained some ghosts over the years. These tales tend to be the usual feelings of presences, and an occasional apparition. There is also said to be a "black aggie" that haunts the cemetery, though details are quite sketchy. Like all over aggies, it's said to come out at night and roam among the stones.
     People have recorded high EMF readings, vortexes, and feelings of wooziness, and being followed.  Sounds like a fun place to visit at night.

Bristol, TN - Haunted Hollow

No pic.

Brighton, TN - Old Brighton High School


In what is now the senior center, there are class pictures going back to 1930 so the buildings have been around for a long time. There is a shadow that can be seen in the area between the bathrooms. When you stand outside the building you can see a shadow moving around since the lights are left on in the bathroom and in the kitchen, both areas have the light blacked out. We have cheer practice in this building and have 2 girls who have said they've seen somebody when nobody was there when inspected. In the gym across the street (where we held practice at first) we had the lights turned on and off by themselves. There is also a report of 1 of the squads practice interrupted by people talking and the heavy metal door opening and shutting but nobody there. The door was then locked so it could not be opened from the outside and made sure it was only the squad members the and coaches- still the door opened, light went off and talking. Also recently we had to use the gym since the other building was in use, a parent started itching and scratching for no reason but when down the street she stopped. She and I both got strange feelings that someone was there besides the girls. Her daughter is also very nervous to go in there for any reason and a couple of them refuse to go anywhere in that building alone and with the lights off. A very strange feeling and sounds from any of the buildings, two of which are closed off. She was going to talk to the fire department soon- which is located in the same parking lot and converted 1 small building into their "supply" room. Not sure but the fire department may have been a "shop" building at 1 time in the school's history and then converted (or the fire department all along) either way it been there for a long while too.

Lower End of Briceville the KKK used to be active in this town, and they hung a black man off this bridge named Drummond.

Bolivar, TN - Parran House

This story is documented and can be found in the History section of the library located in Bolivar, TN.
Dave Parran was a simple man who lived in a house known to locals as the “Wedding Cake House” in Bolivar, TN. He was an undertaker who would often sit on his rocker all day, talking to anyone who would pass by. Parran died in 1936, at the age of 86. He had lived in his house for 75 years, and absolutely loved his home. After his death, most of the locals said the thing they’d miss most was passing by his house and seeing him rock.
Dave Parran’s old rocker still sits on the porch of the Wedding Cake House. Sometimes, it will gently rock back and forth, even when there is no breeze. Some people have also seen Dave Parran’s apparition, rocking peacefully in his favorite chair. Others have said they heard Mr. Parran rummaging through his house in the middle of the night.
No one has ever been frightened by the ghost, and everyone agrees that this is a benevolent spirit. So if you pass by the Wedding Cake House, be sure and look at the rocker. You might get a ghostly welcome.
This house is located in the Historical District in downtown Bolivar near the McNeal House.

Blountville, TN - Sullivan County News

Beginning in the late 1940's, a ghost, who was given the nickname of "George", haunted a one-story brick building that served as home for several years for the Sullivan County News.
It was reported that during working hours, the front door would open and close by itself and that occasionally an apparition of a man in a neat gray suit would be spotted coming in the back door. It's rumored that one Editor, being startled by the intruder, fired a gun twice at the ghost before it disappeared.
