Real Haunted House

White Screamer

White Bluff, Tennessee

In this small town of White Bluff there’s a famous hollow where the White Screamer dwells. No one knows exactly what it is or its origin. It’s said to be a white mysty form that wails and cries and screams enough to make any person go insane, thus gaining its title of “The White Screamer”. It has also been noted that if one ventures to the spot where they might’ve seen the White Screamer, the grass will be burned away. Alledgedly, around the 1920′s a young man built his family of a wife and seven children a home and farm down in the hollow, and every single night they’d wake up to the sound of this awful crying and screaming. So, finally, after this young man has had enough, he grabs his shotgun and runs out into the night off to find whatever beast is making this awful noise. He climbs to the top of one of the surrounding hills to see if he can spot it, and then hears the sound of screaming… only it’s the voices of his family and children. By the time he can climb down this hill and get back to his house, he finds his whole family dead.. and pieces of their body thrown around on the ground and the floors of the house. You can still drive down into the hollow and see the foundation of the house and graves of the members.

I DONT KNOW WHO PLACED THIS INFORMATION ON THE WHITE SCREAMER, BUT THEY ARE NOT FROM THE WHITE BLUFF AREA.
THE WHITE BLUFF AREA SCREAMER IS A DOCUMENTED CREATURE. IT HAS NEVER HURT A HUMAN. IT PREFERS DOGS TO EAT AND THERE IS ONE CASE OF IT KILLING A CALF. I NEVER HEARD OF IT KILLING A HUNTING DOG IN THE WOODS BUT IT DID TAKE A FEW FROM YARDS AND DOG PENS. IT STANDS ABOUT SIX FEET TALL ON FOUR LEGS. IT IS CLOSE TO AN ALPACA IN SIZE. IT HAS THREE TOES ON EACH FOOT AND A LONG NECK ABOUT 30-36 INCHES LONG. IT IS SHORT HAIRED AND WHITE IN COLOR. ITS HEAD RESEMBLES A CAMEL, BUT WITH A SHORT NOSE. IT HAS A VERY LOUD VOICE SIMILAR TO A WOMAN SCREAMING. IT IS VERY FAST, HAVING BEEN TIMED ON A RUN FROM HILL TO HILL. IT IS ESTAMATED IT CAN REACH SPEEDS OF NEARLY 70 MPH. IT HAS GREAT STRENGTH IN ITS LEGS, BACK AND JAWS. I HAVE OLDER FAMILY MEMBERS THAT HAVE SEEN THIS CREATURE. I HAVE INTERVIEWED MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE SEEN IT AND A FEW THAT HEARD IT AND DID NOT STAY AROUND TO SEE WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE. I HAVE SEEN HAND DRAWN PICTURES OF IT. ALL THE PICTURES LOOK SIMILAR. IT HAS BEEN KNOWN TO COME UPON PEOPLES PORCHES, BUT IT HARMED NO ONE. THERE HAS NOT BEEN ONE IN THE WHITE BLUFF AREA SINCE THE 1950′S. IT RANGED THE TRACE CREEK AREA NORTH TO LEATHERWOOD CREEK, EAST TO HARPATH RIVER AND INTO THE TURNBULL AREA AND THE SULFURWELL AREA. I ONLY KNOW OF ONE MAN THAT SHOT AT IT AND THAT WAS THE MAN THAT LOST THE CALF. THERE PROBABLY WAS MORE THAN ONE OF THEM, BUT I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND TWO SIGHTINGS AT THE SAME TIME. AT PRESENT THERE ARE A GROUP OF THESE CREATURES DOCUMENTED IN A STATE NORTH OF TENNESSEE. I WILL NOT STATE ITS NAME BECAUSE SO SOMEONE WANTING TO BE SEEN ON THE 6:00 PM NEWS WILL BE OUT HUNTING THEM.

that is really spooky Barry-that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up-something prehistoric that survived perhaps?

I personally want to believe in it, but find it very hard to believe in the white screamer. It is just a legend because almost every story I have ever heard about it, the description of it has changed drastically. It has been a little girl, a nine foot tall woman with goat feet, ect. It is just some legend created by the people of our county to entertain people(just like the “werewolf”, until I see it, I don’t believe.

Wow. I live in White Bluff and people talk about the White Screamer all the time but I really do find it hard to believe in it because the story is so old that it has probably changed a million times.

thats an entertaining story but I would seriously doubt that it is composed of all facts. I have lived in the Franklin County area of Tennessee all my life, and I have never even heard of White Bluff. Im tempted to pay the town a visit, now. :)

Sorry, guys, but its real. My cousin was out walking and heard it for himself. I’ve lived there all my life, untill now anyways, but Ieven saw it and what SHE can do! Me and to of my friends while at willam james, did a dare. It is stated that whoever yells I hate the white screamer 10 times in a dark room infront of a mirror, will ither be cursed or dead. Well we did it! My cousin almost died that night because of a strange rock came out of nowhere and hit him in the head hard. He was rushed to the doctor’s office just in time! I, however, was awaken to see my cat hit by lighting, and the tree to the side of my house, hit the ground! I got pics. to prove it, too.

this sounds like a variation of a tale about a scandinavian spirit called an utburd. they believed that the spirit of a child that was exposed to the elements and left to die which was a common practice in ancient times could form into a vengeful spirit which would come back to attack the living. they usually appeared as white smoke but could take on human form as well and were marked by unearthly screaming, howling and ground shaking. interesting that this type of story would appear in tennessee.
