  For the Season 15 finale, I’ve decided to stick to my roots and do another ghost-themed episode. But you know me, I can’t do it without putting my stamp on it, either. So that’s why I’m going to do another one of my famous Top-10 episodes. Last week, I gave you a list of my Top-10 least known haunted locations from around the world. Tonight, I’m going to keep it local and give you the Top-10 most haunted locations in the Great Smoky Mountains, right here in my adopted state of Tennessee. 

  With Winter looming just around the corner, most people aren’t thinking about taking a vacation. However, with COVID-19 ravaging the world for the last two years, most of us (the smart ones, anyway) have pretty much remained isolated in our homes, only venturing out to go to work and the grocery store. But if you’re like me, you’re more than a little stir-crazy at this point and you’re probably itching to get out of your house and go somewhere – ANYWHERE!

  One of my favorite places in world to go is the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s quiet and peaceful up there. It’s beautiful and relaxing, too. So, if you live in the United States, and you’re looking for a place to go, I highly recommend staying in the Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge areas. And, if you’re going to go, why not visit a few haunted places while you’re there, because if you’re listening to this podcast, I know you’re into that kind of stuff. Besides, it’s a great way to see some things that aren’t on the regular “tourist list”.

  Thanks to the rich tradition of storytelling from the Irish and Scottish immigrants that settled the Smoky Mountains, there are plenty of spooky stories to go around.

  Usually, old folklore traditions are at the root of Smoky Mountain ghost stories. For example, Appalachian folk believed that the oldest tree in a mountain hollow was haunted and the crack and pop of a fire was the Devil snapping his fingers, signaling a bad omen.While the pioneers of the Smokies have long since passed on, their legacy (and perhaps their spirits) can still be found in the nooks and crannies of the rolling hills of the Smokies. There are plenty of haunted places in the Smokies that will send shivers down your spine, but this list of ghost stories and haunted places in the Smoky Mountains are some of the most spine-tingling, spookiest spots in East Tennessee to visit on your fall Pigeon Forge cabin vacation.
