Frightmare Manor - Haunted House / Screampark

If you’re searching for a real haunted house, explore the dark secrets hidden within Frightmare Manor, located in east Tennessee in Morristown, about a one-hour drive from Knoxville. This 20-acre plantation was once the home of Jeremiah Lexer, a psychotic serial killer from the 19th century who performed animal and human experimentation in his house. These bloody acres went abandoned for years, with the last business before Frightmare being a restaurant that closed in 2001. 

Jeremiah unfortunately suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, both conditions that were not treatable during his time. He was known as a loving family man by his community, but at night he terrorized his community with numerous murders. The exact count is not known, but 31 victims were found in a pit behind the house. This deep, dark history makes Frightmare one of the most intense haunted houses in Tennessee. If you’re looking for a true terror, and not just an attraction, Frightmare is for you.

Today, Frightmare offers three independent haunted houses filled with frights and scares. The site also features a unique free-fall attraction known as “the Lexer Jump,” which is not for the faint of heart. Lexer finally committed suicide by jumping out of the window, and you’ll jump too – no bungee cords, no anything holding you back.

The attraction is also home to the nationally recognized Nightmare at Frightmare Challenge, a controversial challenge that offers a money-back guarantee – if you finish it. You will sign a release form, and if you make your name and picture will be etched into their survivor gallery. If not, you’ll hang your head and shame and walk out the door. 

After your way through its dark secrets, you will leave with memories that will surely consume your nightmares.

Although the exact details of the story are unclear, visitors have reported hearing strange noises and feeling a presence inside the cave. 

The Historic Bell Witch Cave is also home to a reconstructed cabin of John Bell, which contains many artifacts from the original Bell cabin, such as a chimney stone and an iron kettle. So, if you are into the paranormal, this is a must-visit place in your travel plans.

The 19 Most Haunted Places in Tennessee

Last Updated: Dec 16, 2021 @ 6:08 am

When most people think about the great state of Tennessee, the first thing that tends to come to mind is music and with good reason. However, that is certainly not all that the state is known for, it is also somewhere that is home to some of the most terrifying haunted locations in America.

Let’s get up close and personal with some of the most haunted places in Tennessee:

1. Greenwood Cemetery, Chattanooga

Greenwood Cemetery, Chattanooga

Cemeteries are common places that have ghostly sightings and other paranormal activity. The Greenwood Cemetery in Chattanooga is no different.

The ghost that is most often seen around the Greenwood Cemetery was once a wealthy woman who lived across the lake with her husband. After becoming wheelchair-bound because of health issues her husband decided to cheat on her and eventually killed her.

People say that it is possible to see the tracks from a wheelchair on the cemetery grounds. Furthermore, people who claim to have seen the woman say she is not in human form but is more of a green mist.

Conflicting reports say they have seen the woman wandering near the lake and she appears to be a shade of green.

2. Sensabaugh Tunnel, Kingsport

Sensabaugh Tunnel, Kingsport

People living in Kingsport have heard the stories about one of the most haunted locations in East Tennessee, the Sensabaugh Tunnel. Any place that has been around since the 1920s and is apparently the sight of a mass murder is sure to be the sight of paranormal activity.

Paranormal investigators travel to the Sensabaugh Tunnel in the hopes of acquiring an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). They also hope they might be fortunate enough to capture one of the ghosts that hang around the tunnel with their cameras.

It is not uncommon to hear the crying of a baby in the tunnel or seeing orbs in and around it.

Many visitors to the area say they have heard what they assume to be the murdered family members of Mr. Sensabaugh, the namesake of the tunnel.

3. Gwendolyn’s House, Elizabethton

Gwendolyn’s House, Elizabethton

People looking for haunted places in Elizabethton need to check out Gwendolyn’s House. The home has been around since the early 1900s. One of the overall opinions of the property is that it is incredibly scary to visit.

People have witnessed what appears to be the ghost of a black dog running around the house in both the basement and the hallways.

Other sightings include a woman in white who likes to stand in or near the windows of the house.

Ghost hunters that have been to Gwendolyn’s House also say that when people enter the home a ghost or entity that is angry screams at them.

Who the entity is and why they are so aggressive is not known.

4. Wheatland Plantation, Sevierville

Wheatland Plantation, Sevierville

Ghost hunters who travel to the Wheatland Plantation in Sevierville Tennessee are in for a real treat.

The location is one of the most haunted plantations in the country , courtesy of its horrible history that is filled with murders and deaths numbering over seventy.

The location was the location of battles fought during the Civil and Revolutionary wars. If that is not enough there are also nearly 70 graves for African Slaves, a mass grave for roughly 28 Cherokee Indians, and a couple of soldiers from the Revolutionary War.

Some of the ghosts that wander around the property are from the Chandler family who once called the plantation home. Investigators have captured what sounds like Native Americans chanting when doing a spirit box session.

In the basement of the plantation, some people have sensed that children were present. Another investigator reported that she had a difficult time breathing while in the basement and began crying uncontrollably for no apparent reason.

Because of all of the death around the entirety of the plantation people have sensed or seen ghostly figures all over the property.

5. Bethesda Church & Cemetery, Morristown

In Morristown, the Bethesda Church and Cemetery is said to have an incredible amount of restless spirits wandering around. The ghosts that people have seen in and around the church are mainly confederate soldiers that perished many years ago.

One witness who was passing the cemetery and church on his way home in the wee hours of the night saw what appeared to be a Confederate soldier. He was apparently swinging an old-fashioned lantern.

Another witness stated he saw two Confederate soldiers standing outside the church carrying on a conversation. When they appeared to spot the witness they continued talking and walked around the corner of the church disappearing out of sight.

There is also the ghost of a woman who appears to be crying on one side of the far side of the cemetery. If you are there at night there is a good chance you can hear her crying.

6. Bijou Theater, Knoxville

Old theaters are frequently on lists of haunted places to visit and this list is no different. When visiting Knoxville many people like to make their way to the historic and glamorous Bijou Theater.

The structure is in remarkable condition and is a favorite spot for people looking for entertainment. Along with the entertainment people visiting the Bijou may also encounter a ghost or two.

The only ghost that has been identified is Colonel William Sanders. He passed away in the bridal suite of the theater.

Other ghosts that haunt the theater include soldiers who perished in the theater when it served as a hospital. The halls are also home to a rather angry ghost.

7. Rotherwood Mansion, Kingsport

Rotherwood Mansion, Kingsport

The Rotherwood Mansion is definitely one of the haunted houses in East Tennessee that ghost hunters enjoy visiting. The home is almost 200 years old and has an incredibly tragic history.

The home was built by Reverend Frederick Ross. The beautiful home would prove to be a location of tragedy and despair for his daughter Rowena. She lost her first love on the day of her wedding prior to the ceremony.

She went on to lose another love and eventually her daughter perished. Unable to live Rowena killed herself by drowning in the lake in which her first fiancé perished.

After so much tragedy Rowena’s spirit is still present at the Rotherwood Mansion. People have seen her wandering around the property in a long flowing white dress.

People have also heard unnerving laughter after sundown, seen creepy eyes in the windows and even witnessed a large black dog, which is a ghost, roaming the property and howling.

It is believed, after the home changed hands it became the property of a slave owner, the laughter and other unusual activity is from the ghosts of some of the former slaves.

8. The Delta Queen, Chattanooga

The Delta Queen, Chattanooga

The Delta Queen was once an impressive vessel that carried people around the Tennessee waterways and more. Today the Delta Queen is a hotel docked in Chattanooga.

People can come and see the impressive Delta Queen, stay the night and enjoy a fabulous time. Some of the guests that visit the Delta Queen also get the opportunity to encounter shadows in some of the bedrooms.

Some people find their attempts to enjoy the Delta Queen’s bar prevented courtesy of the ghost of Mary B. Greene who still lives on the ship.

9. Lakeshore Asylum, Knoxville

Lakeshore Asylum, Knoxville

Back in 1886 Tennessee needed a mental institution so they opened the East Tennessee Hospital for the Insane. Years later it was renamed the Lakeshore Asylum.

People who have gone to the Lakeshore Asylum to investigate state there is a lot of ghostly activity through the building.

Ghost hunters and other people who have found themselves within the confines of the old structure have heard screams of what can only be former patients echoing around the halls.

Strange looking figures have also been spotted around the building.

10. The Historic Read House Hotel, Chattanooga STAY HERE

The Historic Read House Hotel, Chattanooga

The Sheraton Reed House Hotel is one of the haunted hotels in Tennessee that has verified ghosts haunting the building. The hotel has served and an elegant place to stay for people since the late 1800s.

It has also been home to deaths by natural causes as well as murders and suicides. The ghost of Annalisa Netherly is believed to haunt Room 311, the location where her husband murdered her upon finding out she was having an affair.

Outside of Room 311 things get moved around in rooms, people see shadows in mirrors some people have even claimed to see what appears to be someone reclining on the bed when no one is there.

Some guests of the hotel and former employees state there is also the ghost of a man and a woman who may have been a prostitute haunting the hotel to this day.

Some say the man’s ghost hangs around because he was either murdered or committed suicide while on the premises.

11. Carnton Plantation, Franklin

Carnton Plantation, Franklin

Carnton Plantation has the unusual feature of having a front porch that overlooks a graveyard where approximately 1700  Confederate troops were buried in the wake of a bloody battle nearby.

Shortly after the mass burial, the mansion was transformed into a hospital. There were four Generals who died inside and the staff held on to their bodies so that survivors would later be able to pay their respects.

All of this explains why so many witnesses have seen the ghosts of confederate soldiers roaming around the mansion and its grounds. However, these are not the only spirits said to haunt the Carnton Mansion.

It has also been suggested that the spirits of the Carnton children are also haunting their former home since only two of the five children survived to adulthood.

All of this is more than enough to secure Carnton Mansion as one of the most haunted houses in Tennessee, but there are yet more restless spirits here!

Among the other spirits spotted in the mansion are a young girl who was murdered by a jealous suitor, the family cook who is struggling to let go of her duties to the family and a beautiful woman with long dark hair.

12. Resthaven Memorial Gardens, Clarksville

Resthaven Memorial Gardens, Clarksville

If ever there was a location that fails to live up to its name, then surely it has to be RestHaven Memorial Gardens. There is not much restful about a place that is considered to be one of the most haunted locations in Tennessee.

Nearby, you will find a house in which a brutal slave owner once resided. It is rumoured that one of the slaves raped his daughter and got her pregnant. The owner killed the slave in a fit of rage.

The slave’s ghost is often seen wandering the grounds and the memorial gardens in search of  his lost child.

This has led to speculation that he did not rape the girl, but that the pair had fallen in love – something the slave owner was unwilling to accept as a possibility.

13. Wheatlands Plantation, Sevierville

Wheatlands Plantation, Sevierville

Wheatlands Plantation has a long history that is marred by murder, death and destruction. It is absolutely no surprise to those who know this history that the house has been named one of the most haunted houses in Tennessee!

This is not the first house to stand here, the original actually burned to the ground in 1825 claiming the lives of 4 children. This probably explains why there are so many reports of a child like spirit in the basement of the new building.

There is also a mass grave on the property which is said to hold the remains of 28 Cherokee Indians, 2 Revolutionary War soldiers and almost 70 African Slaves.

There have also been more than 70 known murders on this property and some of the walls are still stained with blood. It is no wonder this place is infested with spirits.

14. Rotherwood Mansion, Kingsport

It was built in 1818 by a wealthy reverend named Frederick Ross. He intended the home to be a sanctuary, but instead it became a place of despair.

Ross’ daughter Rowena had to watch helplessly as her husband to be drowned in the nearby river on their wedding day.

She became somewhat reclusive and seldom left the house. At last she was ready to open her heart again, but this time her lover died of yellow fever within the first year of their marriage.

Ten years later she tried a third time to find love and even gave birth to a daughter of her own.

However, once again she was left devastated when the girl died. Rowena could take it no longer and drowned herself in that same river her first love had. Could it be that she was cursed? Is that why she still roams the property always looking for true love?

Later, the mansion was purchased by a cruel slave owner who is said to have tortured his slaves. Did his evil deeds contribute to the hauntings here?

Many have said that he is to blame for a menacing presence that takes the form of a black dog. There have also been reports of maniacal laughter and of terrifying faces peering in the windows at night!

15. Pegram Family Cemetery, Pegram

Pegram Family Cemetery, Pegram

In 1970, a group of developers bulldozed an area along the Harpeth River while working on a housing development. However, in the process they tragically destroyed the Pegram Family Cemetery.

The dirt from the land was sold as fill dirt across two counties. Five years later, the river waters rose and all of the homes built on the land that was once the cemetery were flooded.

During the flood, some coffins that had not been relocated floated to the surface. One in particular belonged to the town’s very first postmistress – Carrie Pegram Heath.

Since then the town has had nothing but bad luck. It floods with some regularity and the seemingly cursed land has had no end of financial hardships.

There is an overall feeling of unrest and malice lingering in the air and some of the homeowners have claimed to see tombstones appearing and disappearing in their gardens.

16. Orpheum Theatre, Memphis

Orpheum Theatre, Memphis

The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis is said to be haunted by the spirit of a little girl named Mary who died in some kind of accident on a nearby street.

She has been hanging around in the theatre for about sixty years now even although the original building burned down in 1923 and reopened in 1928.

She is often seen in her favourite seat – C5 and sometimes she is heard giggling while running up and down the aisles.

17. Tennessee State Prison, Nashville

Tennessee State Prison, Nashville

Tennessee State Prison was built in 1898 and over the years that it was in operation it gained notoriety thanks to several attempted break outs, riots and overcrowding.

It also became famous when it was used during the filming of both ‘The Green Mile and ‘Ernest Goes to Jail’. Today it lies abandoned, but it is certainly not unoccupied!

There are frequent reports of cell doors closing by themselves, cold spots, phantom footsteps and even boot prints in the dust where no living person has walked!

18. Bell Witch Cave, Adams

Bell Witch Cave, Adams

One of the most famous ghost stories from Tennessee has got to be the tale of the Bell Witch. Even those who are not particularly interested in the paranormal know this story!

The Bell Witch was said to have murdered John Bell and also tormented his entire family with poltergeist style activity for several years. At one point, the terror was so intense that President Andrew Jackson refused to stay in the Bell house overnight!

This malicious spirit is said to be an extremely wicked woman named Kate Batts. She was malevolent in her life and even more so in death as evidenced by her murderous ghost. She is still said to haunt the cave next to John Bell’s farm…

Some of the most commonly reported activity includes sightings of strange looking animals, rattling chains and unexplained knocking.

19. Hales Bar Marina & Dam, Guild

Hales Bar Marina & Dam, Guild

Hales Bar Marina & Dam was built along the Tennessee river in 1905 in order to tame the natural whirlpool.

The local Native American tribes were not happy with its construction and were said to have put a curse on the dam. Could this be why the structure is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in Tennessee?

Visitors, staff and paranormal groups have all reported a variety of paranormal activity which includes Native American war cries, chanting, dark figures and even the apparition of a little girl in a pink dress who is said to have drowned here.

It is said that her remains are still trapped in the dam which would explain why she has been unable to rest.

Brushy mountain state penitentiary.

Featured on:

  • Ghost Asylum “Brushy Mountains State Penitentiary”
  • Wrestling with Ghosts “Drag Me to Jail”

Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary was operational as recently as 2009. This maximum-security prison housed some of Tennessee’s most dangerous criminals. Some of the criminals’ crimes were so heinous that their prison sentences were upwards of 200 years!

While the death penalty was never carried out at Brushy State, more than a few of the murderers and rapists housed here died during their stays. With crimes like that, it’s no wonder they also enjoy haunting from the grave!

Paranormal happenings at this location include physical assaults, apparitions, footsteps, and disembodied voices. The prison offers both short nighttime tours and overnight stays, both complete with the use of sophisticated paranormal investigation equipment.

Bijou Theatre

Ghost Hunter s – The show named the Bijou the “hidden gem of haunted America,” although it was never given its own feature episode.

Originally built in 1817 as a hotel, this historic building was used as a makeshift hospital during the Civil War, and many soldiers died within its walls. For a short time, it also served as a brothel, which was also riddled with violence.

Paranormal incidents at this venue include physical interactions, apparitions, and disembodied voices. It is also reported to have several residual hauntings , where a scene from the past plays out repeatedly, as though it is stuck in time.

This is still a working theatre, so ghost tours are hosted by the theatre and are typically reserved for special events. There is usually a large event held around Halloween.

Ghost tour guests are escorted through all the typically off-limits parts of the theatre and provided with a detailed account of the various paranormal events that have been reported over the years.

Greenbrier Restaurant Gatlinburg

  • Wrestling with Ghosts “I Used to Be a Cop”

For those of you who prefer a friendlier ghost, this is the place for you. This historic lodge-turned-restaurant is home to the ghost of a jilted bride named Lydia . The story goes that Lydia was staying at the lodge, and after she got jilted, she was so emotionally distraught that she killed herself in her room. She also has a marked grave on the property.

Many restaurant patrons report seeing Lydia’s sad apparition at the top of the staircase that leads to what was once the guest room. Since this episode originally aired, the restaurant has been remodeled, but it is the same place.

Even if you hope to see a ghost during your visit, you obviously also want to enjoy the food as well. The Greenbrier has a reputation for top-notch American surf-and-turf and craft cocktails. In a play on words, they bill themselves as a “Food and Spirit Outpost.”

Cocke County Memorial Building

  • Ghost Brothers – “Coke County Memorial Building”

  • Ghost Stalkers – “Wheatland’s Plantation”

This 1820s home is supposedly located on a Native American burial mound and is said to have had over 70 murders/deaths take place on the property. There is also a slave cemetery located on the property. Whew! That’s definitely a lot of baggage.

But, is it really haunted? Unfortunately, you probably won’t get a chance to decide for yourself any time soon.

Ghost Hunt Weekends used to host periodic dinners and ghost hunt tours on the plantation, but the plantation is now closed to the public. It was recently sold at the beginning of 2019. Perhaps the new owner will reopen it for tours in the future.

Old Lafollette Post Office

  • Wrestling with Ghosts – “Going Postal”
  • Wrestling with Ghosts – “The Postman Always Screams Twice”

The hauntings are thought to be a combination of soldiers, Native Americans, and hospital patients. The hospital also sits directly on top of a natural spring, which is thought to feed the paranormal activity at this location. Observed encounters include physical interactions, apparitions, disembodied voices, and more!

Rabbitman cabin.

  • Wrestling with Ghosts “The Rabbitman Commeth”

This haunting surrounds the story of George Sherwin, who fed and befriended wild rabbits. His large collection of wild rabbits soon attracted the attention of neighbors, and subsequently the police. In his zest to protect his rabbits, he wound up committing multiple murders over the years.

Paranormal events include physical assaults, unexplained violent illness immediately after stepping foot onto the property, disembodied voices, and more.

I couldn’t find any information regarding the exact location of this cabin (somewhere in the Uncoi Woods), so I am assuming that it is not currently open for ghost hunting. You can watch this full episode on YouTube.

Sensabaugh Tunnel

Some are skeptical of the authenticity of this haunt , however, many hunters and locals do report paranormal activity at this location. It is said to be haunted by Mr. Sensabaugh himself, a man who lived across the street and frequently scared off mischievous teens, while he was alive. It may also be haunted by the 7 immigrant workers killed during the tunnel’s construction.

People report horrifying apparitions, disembodied voices, and more! Just type Sensabaugh Tunnel into Google Maps to find the location.
