This site is closed Mon-Wed all year around. We drove to see it only to find a locked gate and new posted hours of operations.

There is a cave. That is no joke. You have to duck down and finagle your way through. There are a million spiders. But it's totally worth it.

Bell Witch Cave

On our recent road trip we toured three caves. This was our favorite. We were the only two people on the tour. The owner of the property was our guide and she was lovely. She was full of information and showed us some creepy pictures other visitors had sent.

The cave is directly under an Indian burial ground that is over a thousand years old. There was a young girl buried in the cave, but vandals stole her bones long ago. Our guide led us through the cave and told us great stories along the way. I'm not a big believer in the supernatural, but even I got a little creeped out.

The Bell Witch Cave

My mother and I went to the farm/cave in the early 2000s. I had heard about the Bell Witch my whole life and was so excited to go. My mother was nervous (a very spiritual woman - she does not like to mess around with the supernatural). She picked a small handful-sized bouquet of flowers from her yard to bring as an offering.

We spoke with the woman who owns the property, and sat at her picnic bench looking through photos and hearing stories about the town and the history of the farm. We were the only ones there. The woman led us down the path and into the cave. We explored a bit (very cool, whether you are into the witch factor or not). In one of the cave's "rooms," my mother placed her bouquet of flowers up in a crevice and we continued down a passageway.

When we came back through, the flowers were GONE. There was NO ONE in that cave except the three of us. Whaaaaat......!!!! Awesome.
