ABOUT

The Bell Witch of Tennessee

Welcome to another Supernatural Episode of True Crime and Chill. We are so excited to be introducing our new series of local lore from each of the United States. This week we are covering the Bell Witch of Tennessee.

In 1804 John Bell Sr moved to Adams, Tennessee with his wife and children. They had relocated from North Carolina and while there, John and his family joined a church that John actually became a deacon at. Their life was by all accounts really good and they ended up prospering in Tennessee. The Bell children were growing up really well, the family made a really good name for themselves. However, in 1817, their life changed forever when a witch began to terrorize John and his daughter, Betsy. Strange sounds, sheets being pulled off beds in the middle of the night, scratches and bruises, and a disembodied voice threatening John’s life are only a part of this strange tale.
