Renowned for its paranormal activities, this place is one of the most known places across the United States of America. This cave is associated with the Bell Witch, which tormented the Bell Family in the 1800s.


The tale of The Bell Witch

Moved from North Carolina to Tennessee along with his wife and nine children, John Bell, a farmer by profession, bought land along the Red lake. They moved around 1804 and lived happily for 13 years. During this period, they earned quite a fortune.


In 1817, they started encountering some unusual activities around their place. Mr. Bell began seeing strange animals and creatures on his farm. Unexplained and mystic events started occurring, which were centred around Betsy, Mr. Bell's daughter.


They could hear someone's choking and gulping sound, chains being dragged here and there, the drooping sound of stones on the wooden floor, knocking on walls, and Betsy being attacked in her sleep leaving behind bruises and scars.


Even though terrified and shook, the Bell family never let a hint slip from them. But when it all got out of hand, they involved outsiders in the matter.


John asked his friend James Johnston and his wife, to stay with them for a week. And to their surprise, even Johnson and his wife could feel the mystic activities. Knocking on doors and walls, dragging chairs, movement in different objects.


The voice of the spirit grew louder over time, and it was evident that the spirit quoted the Bible and scriptures. Spirit vowed to kill John Bell and to never let Betsy marry his lover Joshua Gardner. And it is said that these are two main reasons why the spirit returned.


The mystic force always introduced itself as a different person. Once when asked about her identity, she said that she is the spirit of the Bell family's neighbour Kate Batts. And from then on, the spirit was addressed as 'Kate.'

In the coming years, no one knew that they would be tormented and harassed by the spirit, especially Betsy, who received a lot of physical abuse. John, as believed, was under the spirit's spell, and thereof his physical condition (health) deteriorated.


Kate, the spirit, seemed to get really popular because of her knowledge of the Bible, people's past and future. Many people visited the Bell family. They all were assumed by the ability of Kate in multiple places at a time.
