OF THE NATCHEZ TRACE
The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile path from Natchez, Mississippi,
to near Nashville, Tennessee. The route goes past Jackson and
Tupelo, Mississippi, and close to Florence in northwestern Alabama.
This course follows an ancient trail first used by animals,
and then various peoples, as it connected the southern end of
the Mississippi River, through a portion of Alabama, to the
salt licks available in middle Tennessee. This well-traveled
trail has witnessed many characters in American history. Some
entities from the past still haunt the Trace.
OF LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN
Lookout Mountain is surrounded by lakes, waterfalls, caverns,
parks, battlegrounds and hiking trails. The past home of bloody
Civil War battles, family feuds, and atrocities committed both
by and against the Native Americans, the area is also a bountiful
source for ghost stories.
OF THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS
The Great Smoky Mountains are near the southern end of the Appalachian
Mountain chain. Some of the oldest mountains on earth, they
are home to an incredible amount of history. They are also inhabited
by an incredible number of ghosts.
OF THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY
The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders along the Blue Ridge Mountains
for 469 miles. Thanks to explorers, trappers, Indians, the Revolutionary
War and the Civil War, this area has seen its share of hardships
and bloodshed. There are many ghosts of those involved who remain,
continuing to haunt the area to this day.
OF THE THOUSAND ISLANDS
Thousand Islands is well-known as the name of a popular salad
dressing. It is also known as the multitude of islands dotting
the St. Lawrence River between the United States and Canada.
These islands are notorious for having been havens for treasure-laden
pirates, castles with secret passages, and ghosts mingling with
all of these.
Here are photos of an abandoned house I took near downtown Fall
River. When I began zooming in on the image, I saw something strange
in the photo. Do you see the little boy dressed in blue looking
out of the door??
