Do you want to know how it can be done? The reason is there probley was alot of people that died on that road. Ghosts collect energy overtime which could expain why the car won’t start the next morning. They can take engery from anything they want if they are powerful enough. That is how they possess people. When they are dead for awhle the eventualy store enough energy to possess people. In a sence they are able to control people . It all can get worse from here.

why would anyone roll down their windows and yell for some ghost to come and get them . i think you need to be put in a paded room if you do that . where is this place at? i think that its cool that people belive in ghost but why would you want them to come and see you thats just wired .

Well seeing as how i am a ghost i know that what you say about energy collection is 100% true. Just last week i possessed 54 souls but none could provide sufficient energy so i had to go to a car dealership and suck the energy out of all those cars.

You are a total idiot if you think ghosts exist and collect energy from cars. Every one knows they us AA batteries, and AAA if they are ghost children

Jessica says:

That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard. (Who ever thought of getting out of the car and yelling like that?)

I live in Trenton. I have never ever heard of that before, but I have been on that road a couple of times at night. Actuallualy around halloween. It looks creepy on that road because it’s right beside the Gibson County lake and the moon always reflects off the water. The next time I go back there I will try it, but I doubt it very much.

Our paranormal investigation team has been to this location & has found no activity at the times we went. Pretty much ( untill proved otherwise) a local urben legend.

kara says:

December 15, 2005, 12:00 pm

i dont really belive in ghost but i belive that sprits can come back and help you find your way through life! but i don’t really know they could be ghost i don’t know i just belive that there is an ! for everything!!!!!
ooo yeah and Dagoth Frost onlt devil worshipers go to hell!!! i think!!!
but anyways ya there is a possibility that ghost are real thats just one of the things in life i don’t want to find out i would whether just wonder.

taylor says:

December 30, 2005, 3:32 pm

yea so cool but
in huntsville their is a railroad tracks that at late at night you can go to a railroad .park your car get out, put power on roof and inside if you have thing that are value take them out and wait at 12:00 eactly the car well turn flip but no train what until it stoops go to the car you will see foot prints and hand prints. and some things well not be be there like keys or money ect.
Because long a go 5 kids for a gang were go to a friends house at 12:00 and got killed from the train there are more like some say it is a van full of kids coming home for a football game late at night no one knows for sure .

Alexandra says:

Why doesnt anyone believe this? Havent you all heard the case of emily rose? that was true. And there are more stories that involve being possessed i think its i cant remember but the cases are unexplainable and are really creepy.

I swear this is true. My grandparents went there when they were like 20 or something. They were looking for ghosts, and they were with this other girl. They stoppped the car and just sat there for a minute. They heard a noise and the other girl got scared and hit my grandfather really hard on the top of the head. They tried to start the car back up. It didn’t work the first time. It took about ten minutes to start the car back up. To me that would be really freaky, but I wouldn’t hit someone on the head unless I was mad at them. Maybe. I live in Union City, Tennessee, and that’s not too far from here. Maybe me, my boyfriend, and his parents can try it sometime.

First of all this stuff is put into the catagory of “The Unknown”. Maybe it should stay that way. Ever notice how the more you dig into it, the creepier and scarier it becomes. Present life is that enough…keep trying to deal with the now!!!! Peace.

This is about the story of a war veterian from the cold war thatgot his head blowed off,
when he was cleaning it he was checking the connon
to now for sure it was loaded but it shot off at the same time he was looking in it, That’s a true fact..

that’s why they call it the story of the headless
horsemen “AKA” sleepy hollow.

This is just my opinion,butI think the people who think they are ghost are weird.I also don’t believe that ghost get their energy from cars and batteries.I believe that there are in some form ghost but what some people are saying on here is just plain stupid.

I Am Sofa King We Todd Did says:

I think that everyone on this website is possesed because nobody knows how to spell! Can’t ghosts use keyboards? SAY MY NAME THREE TIMES AND YOU WILL HEAR THE TRUTH ABOUT YOURSELF!

nicole says:

April 1, 2006, 10:24 pm

My family and I passed through that road on our way back to my hometown in Tennessee (Franklin County), and the road looked normal to me. Not at all menacing, but I wouldnt be dumb enough to take my chances of screaming for a bunch of ghosts to come pay me a visit. Thats just stupid. :/

Soldier85 says:

May 15, 2006, 9:33 pm

E-Z there killer. You just have a thing for trying to intimidate people on the net don’t you. Wait are you tryin to compensate? You do know what that means right.(to make up for where lacking in “other areas);). From the look of your comments on this site your vocabulary,(that’s the words you’ve learned over the years to put into sentences), is very limited. All I see are a bunch of ***********************. Grow up.

Nik says:

May 21, 2006, 2:54 am

Ghosts are very real and it is documented that in one way or another they cam harm people. I have seen them myself. But to call on something, not knowing what it ios andd how to contain it is just asking for trouble…..

Soldier85 says:

May 23, 2006, 10:01 am

Spirits not ghosts. But I agree.

annonimus says:

June 1, 2006, 12:35 am

Ghost are very real.If you have had a personal experience you would no that,but you would probably run away if you did i watch this show called ghost hunters and if you don’t believe watch that show it’s good for skeptics and people that think ghosts don’t exist.They will show you that they do exist but as for this story i think its a load of **** its like the bloody mary thing ghosts don’t work on the spot all the time sounds like somebody had nothing better to do

Snake says:

June 22, 2006, 11:10 am

Responding to the 14th reply on this page: What kind of name is “poopy ghost eater”? When I first saw that, I laughed so hard, I almost died! It’s more stupid funny than it is funny.

Kasey says:

Sheldon Ware says:

August 25, 2006, 5:04 am

I live in Trenton, Tn. I believe I will try this myth and see if it’s true. Why not? If it works, I’ll freak out. If not, Then I know it’s a rumor. I will post another comment with my findings.

S.S. says:

August 27, 2006, 7:50 pm

Well for those who “don’t believe in ghosts” then why are you on this web site?

Nat says:

August 28, 2006, 9:42 pm

I drive down Sleepy Hollow a few times a week during the day and night. I’ve never tried that chant thing, but I’m pretty sure if I did, all I’d hear is perhaps a dog barking in the distance. I wouldn’t try it though, I have enough demons as it is. Never ask anything to come to you unless you’re sure you want it! Even if nothing materializes, it doesn’t mean that nothing has bared it’s ugly face. There are stories about Sleepy Hollow, probably just because of the name, and it used to be a lot creepier than it is. The lake has lightened it up a bit, I think. I know of at least one person who died there several years ago; apparently, drunk and froze to death. People say that you can see strange lights there, but I’ve never seen anything unusual. Sometimes you might have to dodge a deer. It may be creepy, but if you live in the country, you’re used to it, especially if it is a familiar route.

Sarah the first to comment says:

September 16, 2006, 10:41 pm

I still stand behind what I said the first time,and I have somethings to say after reading every one’s comments.First,this is for the people who don’t belive in ghost why the heck are you even looking at ghost stories.That just tells me you guys are idots.
Second,now this is for the guy who says he’s 84.You are a PERV!No one wants to read that.Stick to comments ABOUT the story.
Third,this is for the people who think orbs are sighns of ghost.If you watch ghost hunters on the Sci Fi channel you would know that the orbs are mor than likly dust paticals on the cammera.You guys are also idots.

P.S. You all just got told by a 12 year old,and I hope you injoyed it!

How do people come by this. do you just randomly stop at places and yell come to me. i think people think you are crazy. besides i want to know who started this cause i do believe it but i want to ask them how they thought to do this out of nowhere!!

Pam says:

October 13, 2006, 3:30 pm

I live down the road from sleepy hollow in Trenton and this is all a joke it doesn’t work. People started this because of the name and basically to take girls and try to scare them. The only ghosts that show up are the ones dressed in a white sheet put out there by their friends to scare each other.

November 19, 2006, 11:08 am

we went there last night. we drove from ripley. dont waste your time or effort. no one knew where it was and when we did get where we thought it was there were no road signs to confirm that. next time if i want a rush i will just stay home a drink a few 40’s, at least i will get something out of it.

I live in Tennessee and I’ve never heard of that storie nor have I heard that ghosts get energy from cars. But I’m just an average B-C student so…
But I will check into it!

carly says:

February 11, 2007, 5:06 pm

i live about a few miles up the road from that street,
and one night me and my best friend rachel were spending the night together and we thought it would be fun to try that… and well lets just say that we didn’t really believe that anything would happen…
but we were proven wrong.all this is true, well except for rolling down your window(we didn’t do that).we tried to start the car but nothing happened!
we were seeing strange things. but we thought we were
imaginating things but i guess not, we didn’t get home till the next morning. we don’t really believe
in all of this but i thought i should share our storie.creapy yeah i know!

Scary Story Lover says:

March 8, 2007, 8:59 pm

O.K. Cool. Ghost and spirits are real. Its a mystery that they can hurt us. But lets think about God. Would God let harmful evil spirits roam the Earth killing innicont people??? Would he? He didn’t let the Devil. But who knows. Maybe. Maybe not. You have to find out on your own. I see alot of ghost pictures and some are VERY believable. Others are usually smoke or some one playing a stupid trick. My uncle dated a woman who had real ghost pictures. That she took. It shows like a bubble figure of a person. Just a light blu bubble shaped like a person. I write scary stories for websites. I am also a writer for a newspaper. I hope one day to come an author. I really like these stories and then writing facts to show how untrue the story is. If you look you might see some stories I have wrote!! My name is Scary Story Lover!!

Aimee Taylor says:

April 3, 2007, 8:05 pm

I think people should be commited if they roll down the windows and yell at ghosts to come to them. I would not be doing this is anyway,shape or fashion.I do strongly believe in ghosts and spirits,but I am not going to ask them to come to me and not let me be able to crank my car until the next day.

Thank You,

OK, i am 13 and i believe that ghosts are real but sucking the energy out of cars and batteries that is just plane weird…. and that hollering someones name 3 times that is just stupid…. i am all into believing in them but lets not get this out of hand cause people are getting a little too weird these days….

lil d says:

Samantha says:

August 10, 2007, 2:56 am

I just want to say that I think people should pay attention to what they read. The opening comment states that your car won’t start until the next morning…not that it won’t start the next morning. As if claiming spirits inherit energy from power sources isn’t stupid enough…it’s not even relevant to this particular story. Also, my two words to post this are ‘vigorous Bill’ and I think that’s funny.

Lizzie says:

August 27, 2007, 4:42 pm

I think the legend of sleepy hallow road is kind of weird and scary all the same time.

abaddon says:

September 1, 2007, 6:37 pm

I live in this town and know exactly were this Sleepy Hollow Lane is. I can attest to the FACT that this is total BS. There are no lights on this gravel road so if you stop your car turn off the engine and lights and say this phrase you may get a little creeped out, but that is all. no ghosts. no problem with car starting (unless it has REAL problems) so unfortunately this is not were you go if you want to find ghosts. so sad. besides ghosts aren’t real.

abaddon says:

September 1, 2007, 6:52 pm

45 bypass north
pass Milan hwy 77
next road christmasville rd.
go down christmasville rd. it comes to a ‘y’
Sleepy Hollow rd. connects this ‘y’ back together further up the road.
but if you take the left of the ‘y’
you will go a few miles if that.
There is a doctor with lots of land and a lake and a black chainlinked fence to the right.
begin looking for a gravel road to your left. Thats it.
good luck.

abaddon says:

September 1, 2007, 7:15 pm

The gravel road is to the RIGHT! sorry

abby says:

September 20, 2007, 12:50 pm

how stupid do youu have to be
to actually stop your car ,turn the
ignition off , roll down the windows ,
and sayy “COME TO ME”??

pretty dangg stupid if you askk me

MakeLoveToAMakoShark says:

October 16, 2007, 3:25 pm

Oh my goodness! I’ve been to this place so many times! But I wasn’t going to this road on account of the ghosts. I was going to the Gibson Co. lake to make love to a Mako Shark.. but anyhoo.. this story is TRUE! One night me and my lover, Hank WIlliams (a mako shark) had just finished up. He told me the story of Sleepy Hollow lane. I had heard it before because I live in Trenton. He yelled it and it worked! Sacry ghosts came out of everywhere! They were all naked so it was very humorous! One even tried to stick it in but Hank didn’t stand for that! Well I’d really like to see some comments on this! Thanks

Marie Fortune says:

October 29, 2007, 9:55 am

I use to live in a town near to Trenton, I’ve never heard the Sleepy Hollow Lane story. So is there any one out there that has done this. Did your car not start until the next morning? If it didn’t start did you put the key in ignition?

Marie says:

October 29, 2007, 10:00 am

Little Joe do you kiss your mama with that trash mouth? To be only 12 or 13 years old you sure are a trashy little thing

Well if I do that on “any” road my car will stall. I don’t think that’s something I want to experience. I’ll pass…Thanks.

Oh yeah….cursing not cool children. Why are you on here anyways? Don’t you have myspace or something?

February 3, 2008, 1:53 am

Hey this one is true but i dont think it was in trenton, but when I was a child I went there with my mom and frankly it scared the **** out of me. But like i said this one is true

Mary says:

February 4, 2008, 12:47 pm

but the story is a little different it is rumored that long ago a couple was out riding around and had a wreck she was thrown from the car and decapitated he survived and if you go there pull over to the side blow your horn 3 times and flash your light 3 times and then cut off your car she will come out of a pond and approach you if you let her get close enough she will ask if you have seen her boyfriend. but while she is coming near your car will not want to start but it will sooner or later but it wont take all night….. Now If this is not the one in Trenton then it is in Lauderdale County. I just don’t remember where I was cause it was too long ago but i know it is to be true cause I seen it and scared me shitless… but then again I believe in stuff of that nature… But I know it as headless hollow but then again same diff.

I’m pretty sure that there’s supposed to be something in there about a headless guy on a horse in Sleepy Hollow. You know, The Legend of the Headless Horseman?! Seriously. It’s supposed to be one ghost, head blown off by a cannon, blah, balh, blah…

Ok this might solve everybodys problems. I used to live less than 2 miles from this place ever sence I was 2 or 3. I have tried everything they said to do but nothing has ever happened. Just to let you know how much I know about it i am now 17 and I moved from there maybe 2 months ago. The only thing that you might have heard that is true is there is a black panther out there some where (there is more now cause the TWRA released about 15 to 20 out around that area sometime last year). Oh yeah and this Seepy Hollow has nothing to do with that dang headless horseman.

Does any1 know where that place is? I think all the stuff about ghosts is sooooo cool and I totally believe. I live in Illinois and there is this place called Moore’s Cemetary. There is one pole thingy with the light on it. It is said that if you go out there when it is really dark(works best during a full moon)and just sit there with your car running, the Blue Lady walks. You know when she’s there because the light goes out and your car shuts off untill she leaves. No telling how long that can be. My moms new bf went there with a couple of his friends when he was a teenager and caught her on tape. I’m totally not kidding. That is REALLY FREAKY!

My uncle’s gf, Margaret, lives in an old soldier hospital full of ghosts. They pinch her, hit her, and move her stuff around. She had some ghost hunters come to her house. One of them was a woman on fire who slept on her spare bed. When my uncle was playing on his drums, and a ghost pinched him on his arm, and he could see his skin lifting up. The ghost woman goes into the basement alot. The ghost hunters went up there and took the doll the ghost plays with and put it on the shelf. A few minutes later, they caught the ghost on tape sliding the doll to the other side of the shelf. The ghosts also used to put my uncles drums out of tune. This srory is totally and completely 100% true. I swear!

Hi, I’m from South Africa and we have loads of ghosts. If anybody is interested you can email me on

allabout says:

Okay, first of all, to clear up the ghost story, thats exactly what it is. “A Story”. It began years ago, before I was even born. It is a simple story for scaring people, or giving kids something to wonder about on halloween . It is an old country road, and it can look scary if you are alone, and start thinking about this. If you stop your car and turn the lights out, sit and wait, the only likely thing that will happen, is another car will hit you because they cannot see you! It is not a high traffic area, but if you sit long enough, a car will eventually pass by. If so many people are trying this, i would drive the road, night after night, and count how many cars you see that are stalled. The area can have alot of urban legends, just like the guy who posted earlier about a black panther, and that the Tenn. Wildlife Recourse Agency, released even more. There are no black panthers in the area, or in North America. A panther, is not a breed, a panther is a Puma, Mountain lion, Jaguar, etc. The only Black Pumas, were reported as being in South America. And they are very rare. If anyone does see a black cat, that looks very large, it is either a large domesticated cat, a dog, a pig, or anything you can imagine, but it is not a Black Panther. What would a black panther eat? All the calves would be eaten within a 2oo mile area. If you want to see a black panther, you will have a much better chance in Belize but youre not going to find one there either, they are very, very rare. The only thing you will see on this road, will not be a ghost, or a black panther, if youre lucky, you may get a glimpse of a coyote, but doubtful that will happen.

Hi everyone. I grew up approx 1 mile from this road, and I have been down this road many many times. Even at night on horseback. Never heard or saw anything out of the ordinary. There was an old spooky looking house that I used to play in and I did feel like someone was there but never saw or heard anything. They buried the house before they built the lake. My Dad used to get very upset when I would ride my horse through there at night and told me some people had been killed there. And also on Lovers Lane in Trenton Tn, there are tales of spooks and this road is now grown up. Well everyone have a great spooky night!

Shane says:

i used to live in the concord community near sleepy hollow, and the only real horror story i know about it is, in the late 70’s it was used as a dump and shoot guns. when the decided to clean it up, people who dumped trash there recived a mysterious letter in the mail from gibson county court informing them of how much they owed for the cleanup…ha, my dad was lucky enough to get one.

LLR says:

July 30, 2008, 4:20 pm

I used to have friends in Trenton and we used to go to some country, dirt road–couldn’t tell you the name or location….but something freaky did happen. We were in one of those old big Blazers and all of a sudden *something* impacted us from behind. It was like we’d been rear-ended by another vehicle, so we all turned around to see who’d hit us since no one had seen any headlights approaching. Nothing was there. The driver started the vehicle and put it it drive and stomped on the gas and we didn’t move for what seemed like an eternity–probably only a few seconds. It was as if the wheels weren’t touching the ground or something. Then we took off FAST after those initial few seconds. FREAKED ME OUT and never went back again!

January 9, 2009, 4:39 pm

I dont know if this is the same road or not, but i went on a trip somewhere near trenton with a couple of my friends to check out a road with a ghost story about 3 years ago. The story was if you drove down this ridge cut road around 1 am your car would die until the morning. So we went to check it out and waste some time. We drive around for a bit waiting for 1 and we hit the road, lit up not really expecting anything but maybe a spook, and sure enough the car stops. At first of course i thought it was my friend trying to **** with us, but we all got out and checked the engine and tried starting it and it just wouldnt. So about 2am we call some ppl trying to see how we’re gonna get out of there and another car comes opposite direction and pulls over to use to see whats up. The couple decides to let us cram in the back seat and take us off the ridge so we wont get hit by a dui or anything and their car wont start back up. So now we are all stranded in the cold with no heat and no one to come get us. Then of course on cue we start hearing noises, rocks falling, engine sounds, it all sounded distant but loud. We were in our cars by now just trying to stay warm. The couples car was facing ours on the shoulder farthest from the cliff. All of the sudden we hear a scream and a loud thump as we are looking at the other car we see something falling and hit the roof of their car, like the size of a dog, dark in color. We all got out to see what it was, when we looked at the car there was a big as dent right on the roof but no scratches, we looked around to see what could have done it and we couldnt find anything close to the size of what we saw. The like clock work or something else, a few minutes pass and we are both able to get our cars started. Freakiest thing ive ever experienced

I am going to sleepy hollow lane to prove if this is true. if i am attacked and savagely murdered by ghosts and spirits brimming with spiritual energys. i will need all of you to retract your previous comments of tom foolery. good night

m&s says:

June 17, 2009, 4:27 pm

Ok for those who ask why would you do that? some of the people that do it go to see for themselves if it is really true…Nerds are us dude…Your wrong…by my opinion…just because you havn t seen a ghost does not mean they aer not there. im a see it to believe it person and i have seen PLENTY of ghosts.Just because you dont believe in it doesnt mean they are not here. And for the so called “christians” that think that there are no ghost and that there is only a heaven and a hell and no in between, and tht if your seeing “ghost” they are demons…where where in the bible does it say tht ghost arnt real???it actually does state tht there is paranormal activity that happens THAT ARE NOT DEMONS!

Hannah says:

June 25, 2009, 4:27 pm

not far from trenton is a town called guthrie, now in guthrie is a road called port royal and if you go down port rpyal there is a really old farmhouse (it sicks out, its also my great-grandmothers house) now the story goes that one of the previous owners daughters, elizabeth, moved to chicago and got married to a man named john. Later after they got married john joined the cival war, and died. Elizabeth was so shocked she moved back to tennessee in her old house with her parents, (now there are two rooms upstairs one green and one red) and commited suicide out the window of the red room and was buried in the grant family cematary in the houses backyard. ive seen her in the window of the red room from outside. ive also heard she dwells in the basment and graveyard too. when we re-painted the red room and got a new welcome mat she wrote welcome on the wall cousin also swears that if you go into the old barn at night that you see someone hanging but thats a different story ( the house has tons of ghost storys). the basement has steps out side too but not the kind with the door, but there is one at the bottom if you go downsatirs and knock on the door 3 times and call her name she appears to you at night.

It may not be proven, but as a novice paranormal investigator here in Tennessee, I have noticed spirits draw off of any energy source. Cameras, Cars, Lights, Radios, Humans, etc. So it very possible that if there are spirits here, and enough materialzation, they could stall your car indefinately. But that many spirits in one place is very uncommon, and the only plae I have had luck with vocal command is Ft. Donelson in Stewart County.

Also as well, for those of the non-believers or die hard skeptics, please do not trash us. Leave the commenting for those with an open mind. Little Hint: If you are skeptic you will more than likely never see a ghost. Free your mind.

Been there done that, I live in Milan. This so called “haunted road” is a fake, I’ve been out there plenty of times and taken alot of people out there so they can experience it. Nothing ever happens but it is fun to watch people freak out that actually do beleive something will happen. It’s all in the “atmosphere” of being out ghost hunting that you start thinking that you saw something, (i’ve never had trouble with my car starting). Anyway, it’s not much fun anymore, it’s no longer a gravel road and they’ve cut down alot of the surrounding wooded area. If you are just looking for a little fun to scare your date or something, might as well check out the “Doll House” or “Seven Gates of Hell” fields both found here in West Tn.

Beth says:

November 16, 2009, 9:04 am

I was there back in the 70’s. Something very strange happened and I still to this day do not know what it was all about. We were told there was a big oak tree (which we found) and there was a house there at one time. We parked there for a few min. but nothing happened. WE pulled out to go on down the road and looking to our left there was a line of trees. All of a sudden about 50 or more men walked straight out of the woods towards us. They had NO hunting stuff. Had NOTHING in their hands. They all walked in unison. Why were they there? What were they doing?
We saw car lights down the rd and kept going. Got over the hill and NO CAR and no where to turn off. So by then we were getting scared and left.
I would still like to know what these men were doing. It was very weird.

This was made up because all the kids used to hang out here and drink among other things. I have lived right eside there all my life as well as I can look out my back door and see this road. The only thing scary about this is the name of the road

Mikel Owen says:

January 9, 2010, 4:13 pm

Not only is this story true I’ve done it myself you guys got it a little wrong though. You don’t have to roll all the windows down just one. And you can pretty much yell anything and within minutes you will start seeing shadows and hearing voices. At this point I roll up my window and the spirits or whatever they are will actually beat on the car and windows you can’t see faces or tell how many of them there are but I would guess its around ten or so and you start to feel like your high you go to sleep and wake up and sure enough your car will not start you feel really weak for about a week after but other than that you will be fine there’s actually two more places near trenton that are haunted one is mainly residual ones is lost spirits that wander

Nathan says:

February 16, 2010, 7:59 am

I’m telling you it doesn’t work, It never did. It was all just mindgames and superstition. And to add to the disappointment………….You can’t try it out Brook. This “haunted” road that is really called Sleepy Hollow is out by Gibson County Lake. When the lake was put in they paved the road, cut all the trees down, etc. It’s not the same road that it was while I was in high school going out there scarying dates and such. The sad truth is………no one can go out there and have fun like we used to cause now it’s just not anything to go do. Plus the stupid game warden travels around those roads more ofter now, ha ha ha.

i went there in 97′ and it happened.i had a red beemer and it was a drop top.well me and my friend susan and mariann and our boyfriends jason,wayne, and keith we all go down there and we drop the top down and all the windows down.well nothing happens till about 2 a.m. at about 2 my friend and her boyfriend get out of the car to do WHATEVER! so at about 3 we startgetting worried but we think they are just messing with us or we start yelling for them susan!!!!!keith!!!…nothing…. we try to start the car to find them but it will not even turn next thing you know we see some headlights in the rear view mirror.we see the lights for about 15min. they do not get closer they just get farther from we keep yelling for our friends then something whispers in my ear (over here) so we get out and start running to find them and believe it or not they were both dead with blood everywhere.and keith’s shirt had been ripped and carved on his chest was (OVER HERE)

Nathan says:

March 15, 2010, 10:15 pm

Who is doing the writing for these websites? I have only looked at two and the writing is like a 4th grader. Words are incorrectly spelled and I can’t tell what they are trying to say. Is this because Tennessee only teaches the TCAP test info. in their schools! So sad!!!! Ha ha! I just saw, “Please use capitalization, correct grammar, and punctuation?” Please! If it’s

Nathan says:

August 29, 2010, 9:44 pm

Are you seriously that sad and bored “G” ? You are gonna use this site to start a “grammar war” are you that bored? But then again, I guess we all should take advice from someone that ends a question sentence with an exclamation mark as well as multiple exclamation points at the end of other sentences. Yes, this website may have alot of stuped people on it that beleive in ghosts, but did it ever occur to you that maybe they just don’t give a damn about how spellin is on here? After all, this is not english class, and this sure as hell is not somewhere to be started a “grammar war” when you yourself need to proof read your own work.

Sounds a lot like the “Bloody Mary” **** where you turn off the light in the bathroom with the sink filled with water & say “Bloody Mary” 3 times & her face is suppose to appear & the waters turn to blood & guess what? Nothing happens other then you feeling like an idiot for even trying it…

I have been there many of times No there is no ghost but it is a creepy road built way back when and it is like a tall hill on both sides and a deep valley you would sit in if you stopped in the middle of the hills. It does get dark enough you can not see your hand before your face. And at times you can see a red light on the top of the hill facing you if you try hard enough. Nothing but a good place to be spooked.

I live in Trenton. I believe in ghost because I have seen them. This however is just a rumor. I tried it after reading this post and nothing happened.
I’m looking to get a few fellow ghosts hunters together in town. There are a few places I know of that needs to be checked out. For example, the abandoned house down the road from me has been abandoned since I was a kid. I have driven past this house several times and seen an old lady in the upstairs window.
I also want to find the “witch’s house” here in Trenton. Does anyone know where that is? People have told me about it but no one can tell me where it is.

I’m from Vermont, but my dad lives in Tennessee. We did that once and it actually worked. The next morning the car didn’t turn on which sucked, because I was supposed to start heading home.And if you don’t believe in ghosts and stuff why are you the site. You just got BURNED by a 11 year old!!

I grew up about a mile from the “haunted” site. I have spent countless hours hunting, riding horses, atvs and playing up and down this entire road. I can tell you the reality of the story. In the 1970’s and 80’s if you parked in a certain spot (now taken by the Gibson County Lake) you could see “ghostly” appearances. It was actually some type of mineral vapor escaping from the ground. This ceased some time in the 1980’s and the area where it happened is now where the lake is. Sorry to disappoint.
