One of the most enigmatic and mysterious places on the planet is considered Bell Witch Cave, which is located in the US state of Tennessee. Its history dates back to the 1800s, but many people believe that supernatural phenomena continue to occur today, as in the photographs taken in a mysterious cave and near it, is often seen strange fireballs or the ghostly shadows of people. Although it is fair to say that the first appearance of ghosts began not in the cave, and in the nearby vicinity.

So, in the early 1800s, John Bell and his family moved from North Carolina to Tennessee.

John BellDespite his quiet nature and good reputation, the new location at the Bell appeared an ill-willer, eccentric widow Kate Batts. One morning in 1817 at home, John Bell noticed an amazing animal with the body of a dog and a rabbit head. He fired several shots at him, but incomprehensible creation disappeared, as if it was not. Then his son saw a large bird, which took over the turkey very strange looking. Such oddities did not attach much importance, but continue to have struck a real stir.

Strange things began to happen, not only outside the house, and soon the children started to complain about the rat squeaking and clattering in their rooms. They also claimed that had someone pulling off blankets and dumped on the floor cushions. Next it was getting worse. The house began to hear voices whispering, and then began the attack on the household. The youngest daughter of Bell often cried from the fact that someone invisible sharply jerked her by the hair and slapped in the face, leaving a handprint on it.

John Bell invited their friends and neighbors to have witnessed strange phenomena. Soon, a strange whispering voice became clearer, and the ghost came in contact with family and visitors to their home. Spirit claimed that he is a witch unfortunate widow Kate Batts. Of course, it was not her own ghost, as the widow was still alive and well, though the family did not like Bella. Then the ghostly voice began to claim to be a spirit child who had died in North Carolina. After complaining about the fact that he was buried nearby, but his spirit is disturbed. And yet sometimes I promised to show the place where to hide a huge treasure.

Back in 1828, ghost spoke with John Bell Jr. and told him a lot of interesting information about future events, which, by the way, turned out to be prophetic, including about future wars, 19th and 20th centuries. Then, the ghost decided to retire (in his words) for 107 years, but leaving, promised that he would no longer torment the Bell family descendants. And he again kept his word, not returning to the house Bell and the nearby cave.
