Bell Witch Farm

old farm house

Located in Adams, Tennessee, The Bell Witch Farm was once just a farm owned by the Bell Family from 1817-1821 they were repeatedly attacked by an entity dubbed "The Bell Witch".

The Bell Witch was claimed to be the spirit of Kate Batts, a mean old neighbor of John Bell who believed she was cheated by him in a land purchase. On her deathbed, she swore that she would haunt John Bell and his descendants. It was not long before people were coming from miles around to hear and witness this unseen force that was terrorizing the Bell home, even former President Andrew Jackson stayed the night and quoted as saying "I had rather face the entire British Army than to spend another night with the Bell Witch".

The Bell Witch now haunts the cave that is on the former property, visitors have heard knocks, screams, groans, and a figure of a woman has been seen.

The Bell Witch has inspired many movies, most notably being The Blair Witch Project.
