Paranormal Research, Haunted Places, Ghost Stories in Tennessee
Most of these tips are basic common sense, yet I see a lot of these mistakes in videos and photographs, we've made a few of these ourselves. Let's learn from our mistakes and enrich the field of paranormal study.
1. When taking pictures, always take 2 or more of the same shot, this will validate if something moves, and confirms ghostly evidence.
2. Never smoke while investigating. This is good advice while filming or taking pictures.

Moon Phases & Weather Effects on the Paranormal. Statistics show that during a full moon hospital activity increases greatly, elderly patients become restless & agitated, children seem to act out & become more hyper, patients with mental illness & personality disorders seem to display erratic mood swings. People act out their aggressions more during a full moon, in fact the term "lunatic" stems from the word "lunar". Do the moon phases or weather have an impact on…Continue

There are rumors of hearing footsteps on the third floor when no one is up there. Stories of hearing music from the music hall when it's closed. Also apparitions of a previous owner. This hotel has had several owners, and it seems a few of their spirits still linger. We caught some very interesting images and sounds, and we'll share it with you on Youtube and our main website.
But the fact is, too many people have heard furniture moving, seen shadows in the halls, and caught…Continue

There is an old dead raccoon sealed inside the Inn, plus while there my husband heard little animals scurrying behind the walls. These days the walls are gaping with holes, or maybe missing to the studs in some cases as revitalization of the Inn is underway. It is no small feat for animals to find shelter in the building.…Continue

This historic & protected site in Oak Ridge is the focus of ghost stories dating back to the 1970's or sooner.
Formerly known as the Wheat Community, it was acquired by the government in 1940's, leaving a lone church and cemetery desolate and it sadly became a hot spot for curiosity seekers & teenagers to gather, disturb, hold seances. No wonder people hear disembodied voices, see spectral lights & even claim there is an evil entity that frightens night time visitors. Be…Continue
In Alcoa, TN, one of the neatest houses exist. Built to withstand the Armageddon, the original owners/builders were a couple who believed that for as long as they built on the house, they would live eternally. Of course their physical bodies couldn't live forever, and of course Armageddon did NOT occur prior to their death. The wife passed away first and the old man believed she had lost her faith. He continued construction, always adding rooms to the house and hand building this "arch &…Continue

In Chattanooga, TN many people know about the Crutchfield Hotel, which later became The Read House hotel. The old part of the hotel dates back to the 1800's and what is now a lavish lobby was once a hospital to soldiers during the Civil War. Is it any wonder there are rumors of haints and spirits?
One of the most famous legends is room 311, where a woman (possibly a prostitute) was nearly beheaded in the bathtub. Her spirit is said to dislike men, especially men who smoke, and many a…Continue

A few of our members and friends joined us one weekend as we searched for Tennessee's most haunted locations. Jonesborough. TN came up in our search more than once. The Appalachian Ghost Walk offers a lantern lit tour, so we hooked up with a wonderful storyteller and saw this old town at night. After the tour we returned by ourselves with dowsing rods, EMF meters, digital voice recorders, cameras and IR camcorders to attempt communicating with the spirits. Our favorite spot turned out…Continue

The remains of Chief Oconostota were discovered before Tellico Lake flooded Chota and Tanasi in 1979. UT archaeologists conducted extensive excavations; the more noteworthy discoveries were the remains of the great townhouse and its…Continue
There are many tales that surround "The Ash." Also known as Red Ash. Today you can find this stretch of road by looking up Old Highway 63 in Caryville. The road is approximately 8-10 miles long and mostly desolate. We have traveled this road at least three times. Once at night. After reading about strange, hovering, blue lights, phantom trains, a female ghost on the tracks and the legendary Goat Man, I decided to check it out. It has been about half a year now since our nightly visit, but I…Continue

But this is what we do, so if you aren't interested in ghosts, why are you on this site?
Though the Gatlinburg ghost tour weaves an interesting story…Continue
