The Bell Witch was one of the most famous Victorian ghost stories. This 1817 Tennessee folklore pre-dates the Victorian Era. The tale is so pervasive that several films have been made about the Bell family and their encounters with the witch. Every family member was affected, including the Bell children, who had various communications from the spirit. The property that the family owned continues to receive visitors to this day; all hoping to catch a glimpse of the Bell Witch.
The Bell Witch Cave is located near where the Bell Farm once stood, and is the site of one of Tennessee's most infamous and chilling stories of ghostly activity. The cave is approximately 490 feet (150 m) long. The cave is privately owned and tours are given during the summer months and the month of October.
