Every state in the US has an unusual part of its history. It seems that, even though the US is young by comparison to the rest of the world, there are plenty of paranormal stories to go around. Just because the US wasn’t officially “discovered” until 1492, let’s not forget that the continent was around for centuries and is really just as old as everywhere else on Earth. That means that it’s had plenty of time to be the home of some very unusual and scary creatures. Many of them are located right here in the good old South.
The southeastern state of Tennessee is the birthplace of bluegrass music, Mountain Dew soda, miniature golf, the tow truck, and Jack Daniels Whiskey. It’s tied with Missouri as the state that borders the most other states (eight). It’s also the 36th largest state, but the 16th most populated. Famous Tennesseans include singers Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, actor Morgan Freeman, director Quentin Tarantino, former vice president Al Gore, TV mogul Oprah Winfrey, and pro wrestling legend Ric Flair. Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was established in the 1940s as part of the Manhattan Project that produced the first atomic bomb. This 440-mile-long state features forests, plains, lakes, rivers, and mountains.
Tennessee is rich with history and much of that history is dark. Tennessee not only has its share of cryptids (as discussed on the last episode) but it also is home to many other ghosts and spirits. Some of them are angry spirits. Some of them are sad spirits and we don't even know why some of them stick around. Nonetheless, the state is full of them.
On this episode of ParaReality Radio, I'll be taking a look at some of Tennessee's most famous, or infamous, haunted locations by giving you a countdown of my top 10 haunted locations in the state.
