The Legend of the Bell Witch

About a 40-minute drive from Nashville, Tennessee in the city of Adams sits a cave with a very unusual legend that has haunted the area for more than two centuries.   The Bell Witch Cave is said to be inhabited by the infamous Bell Witch, a spirit who tormented a farmer and his family in the early 1800s. The lore of the Bell Witch says that she vowed to return to the area, and according to many locals and paranormal investigators, she has made good on that promise and returned to the area.


Legend says farmer, John Bell, and his family were tormented by the Bell Witch for years at their Tennessee home. The legend goes on to say that she took responsibility for John Bell's death which made Tennessee the only state to recognize a death due to the supernatural.  Over the years the Bell Witch Cave has played host to many curious tourists and offers tour options if you're brave enough.  Even Ghost Adventures has made a stop in Tennessee to attempt to catch a glimpse of the Bell Witch.
