NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Middle Tennessee is rich in history with quite a few places where things go “bump” in the night.
On Thursday, News 2 will bring you tales of Haunted Tennessee. We’ll visit places where people talk about mysterious sights, strange sounds and unexplained happenings.
One of those places is Chapel Hill, site of one of the south’s most famous ghost lights. Hundreds of people claim to have seen a glowing ball of light that appears somewhere along the railroad tracks, and some have reportedly died trying to get close to it.
Another famous site that many believe is haunted is just over the state line in Franklin, Kentucky. Octagon Hall was named for its unusual shape, but it’s what happens inside the house that’s attracting visitors from all over the South. Confederate and Union soldiers camped out on the property during the Civil War, and it’s said that the spirits of many of those soldiers never left.
News 2’s ghostly tales will take you to even more places across the region, including Franklin, Gallatin, Murfreesboro, Thompson’s Station, Lebanon, and Nashville.
Haunted Tennessee airs this Thursday beginning at 4 a.m. in every newscast.
