I’m a fan of haunted places. I’m not really a believer in ghosts or spooks, but I LOVE the stories and the atmosphere of these places. I recently joined a FB group called Strange Tennessee and while it is mostly people claiming in poorly constructed syntax that they “seen” their grandma in the smoke of their garbage fire out back, there are, occasionally some great posts. Good stories, interesting locations.
Recently someone asked “What’s the Haunted Place closest to where you live?” And what resulted was a gold mine of local lore and locations that are not quite popular or credible enough to get mentioned on sites like AO, but which are certainly worth a day trip., (Or night trip, if you dare.)
So, I started collecting the places mentioned on a map so I could explore them for myself. I’m sharing the map with two caveats:
- I have no idea about the validity of these stories. Bu almost all of these have multiple accounts of scary happenings at them.
- I have no idea about how accessible or legal visiting these sites is. You’ll have to do your own research about that before going.
- If you want me to add any, comment here.
