Folklore, Monsters, Scary Stories, Legends, Ghosts and Myths in Tennessee
The black ghost dog and the headless bull, both harbingers of doom, that terrorise the Chatata Valley; the ghosts of Opryland, including a woman in black mourning weeds and the shade of Hank Williams; the famous Bell Witch poltergeist haunting in the community of Adams; rumours that Elvis is alive and well, although somewhat older (even though his ghost has allegedly been seen in a number of places, including his Graceland mansion in Memphis); and the ill-omened bleeding horse of the Great Smoky Mountains, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Tennessee.
The phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson; tales of Casey Jones and his locomotive, the Cannonball Express (Jones was actually a real hero who died in a collision in Mississippi - his home is still preserved in Jackson); the treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands; the death song of a Cherokee maiden and her white lover, that is still sometimes heard near Chattanooga, at Walden Ridge (Wallen's Ridge) above the Tennessee River (the pair leapt to their deaths because her father forbade their marriage); the phantom white stag of the Sequatchie Valley; and the Tennessee Troll seen in Campbell county (if you don't see a real one, you can buy a hand-crafted souvenir from A Troll in the Park, in Gatlinburg, Sevier county), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Tennessee.
America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Los Angeles, Washington DC, Boston, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Minneapolis, Miami, St Louis, Atlanta, San Francisco, Savannah, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Detroit, Dallas, Corpus Christi, New Orleans, San Diego, Phoenix, Skagway, Sacramento, Atlantic City, Anchorage, New York, Philadelphia, Houston, Honolulu, Juneau, Sitka, Chicago, Santa Fe, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Lake Tahoe, Fairbanks and Kansas City are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The California coastline, the Okefenokee Swamp, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, Route 66, Yosemite National Park, the Florida Keys, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, rodeos, Yellowstone National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rushmore, the Disney resorts, the Everglades, the wild west town of Tombstone, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Grand Canyon, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Ozarks, Niagara Falls, Bryce Canyon, the Appalachians, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. From camelopard.com, a heartfelt Bon Voyage!
