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.

nora carver says:

July 6, 2006, 11:03 am

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.

I think that’s a cool story… But what’s up with little hillbilly that tried yelling the monster’s name 10 times? A rock hit your friend in his head… ?? why did u throw a rock at him? and U saw your cat get hit by lightning in a tree.. call me crazy but i have never heard of an animal get hit by lightning before….Now it might happen … but a little too conventent if ya ask me ….and yeah yeah I’m sure u didn’t ask .. but there you go any way…. now what did we learn from this ? it’s all fun and games till someone looses an eye… STOP THROWING ROCKS AT YOUR FRIENDS…

I went to White Bluff earlier tonight after reading about it on the internet. I was really skeptical but my friend, Thomas, made me go. We were out in the woods and we wasjust sitting there in the dark…and all of a sudden someone pulled out a joint and I threw down my barbeque sandwich and smoked on it. anyway, i don’t know why i told you that, but i’m all jacked up on mountain dew, I don’t know if the amalgamation of the joint, the sandwich and the mountain dew threw off my perception but all a sudden i heard soemthing in the bushes. it was a high pitched whoooooooo noise- jus like you see inthe movies. i hope this information was helfpful to yall in your search for spooks and ghosts. just whatever you do, if you go to white bluff to see that screaming white thing, don’t forget your flux capacitor.

Do not worry? This is a mutant. A great Dane mixed with a cyote. It is not harmless,, but it is not a spook.

What Barry Hutchins commented about it is completely the truth. I am a residence of White Bluff and have heard many tales of The White Screamer and not a single one has to do with it killing a person although im sure it could if it wanted to. I have investigated and talked to many older people of the community who have lived in White Bluff all their lives. They all describe the way it looks in very similar ways. Alot of people are scared of it because of the way it looks, i am included in that category, although i have had the pleasure of never having an encounter with it.

I live less than 5 miles from White Bluff in neighboring town Charlotte and I have never heard of a “white screamer”. I went to school with White Bluff people most my teenage life and never was it mentioned. I have a hard time believing this as a traditional local folklore. Must be something recent.

twales says:

October 27, 2006, 10:34 pm

I live in a town about 15 min away from White Bluff (Bon Aqua)but when I was in HS I was in the Bluff all the time with my best friend at his place. We camped most every weekend with all the guys from school…played paintball all the time in the woods and I have never ever heard of this Screamer. My brother and his wife now live in the Bluff and Ill be sure to let them know about this incase some camel looking dog comes a knockin at their door.

I’ve lived in dickson county all my life and my grandmother has lived here most of her life and she has told me this story many times. When I was little I always thought she was trying to scare me but as I got older I relized she was truly scared of it. She used to tell me about encounters her father had with it when she was little and how they would have to put things in front of openings in their house when she was growing up because they didnt have doors. My grandmother is a well respected woman in the community so do say Im making all this up. I personally have never had any encounters but I believe in the white screamer.

Stephanie says:

I grew up in White Bluff and still reside close to that area, and I have heard this story all of my life, also. Never have I heard about it harming people either!!!

I think the white screamer could actualy be the devils hound.It is real and people say that they see and that its not real just because there to scared.

Samantha says:

December 30, 2006, 4:27 pm

My Family has lived near White Bluff for a long time. And we have never herd of the White Screamer. But when we asked some other locals they said that its just legend and that ” There ain’t any real proof that the white screamer excists,” I don’t believe in it. It’s just a lot of ****.

Samantha says:

December 30, 2006, 4:36 pm

Also that story by Ashly is ovbiouly fake . Its to much of a quincedence. I’ve herd of people getting struck by lightning after an encounter with the supernatural. But animals. Also Iv’e read that there is only one ghost or supernatural ‘thing’ known to actually KILL the Living and thats the Bell Witch. Also all the other ghosts ( Except the bell witch)doesn’t khave the power to hurt someone, and that the only way for them to avenge their death is just to kind of be a bother or just to scare the liveing out of people. Unless this is a poltergiest. Does anyone who belives this think its a poltergiest ?

melissa and karla says:

I lived in the bluff for almost 13 years and I can tell you the first story was wrong. All throught my life I have always heard of the screamer. I was under the impression it was a banchy not an animal,but it did scream but it didn’t drive you mad. I thought it looked like a white hooded woman real gostly looking,but I allways dismissed it as local folk-lore a real good story to tell at halloween.

imp says:

February 28, 2007, 6:03 pm

Scary Story Lover says:

March 8, 2007, 8:41 pm

Well my gosh. Scary. I have lived in Tennesse all my life and never heard of it. And first off if this were true it would be a MAJOR thing. And about the man getting his famlily killed, he would go to jail. They would acuss him of murder. And last, if this were true….TAPS(ghost hunters) would invesetiate it. If you wanna know more go here….. the-atlantic-paranormal-society.com Its really neat. Well see you later.

I live in Dickson County and I have heard this legend many many times.Just because most of you are negative about things you can’t understand don’t think that they do not exist because you best understand that they do..In fact you would be surprised by what or who may be standing or sitting next to you and you don’t even realize it.and Barry i do believe this legend to be true.Thank you for setting all these non-believers straight.To those that are like Barry and myself thanks for backing this and all legends up.There is a reason they are called legends..It means that at some point in time it was living and something tragic happened to this soul.Think about it!!

phil says:

August 23, 2007, 10:05 pm

I’ve lived in White Bluff for 39 years and in this time i’ve seen the screamer 3 times, face to face and it does not look like a camal. My first encounter was in 1975 when it grabbed my younger brother walking to my cousins house, which was only a couple of yards down our old dirt road. We were the only houses on this road. He just begin the walk when i heard him holler and scream. Me and my friend came running towards him only to see this creature that was a whiteish gray about 6 feet tall holding my brother on the side of the road. We were scared to death. This thing had reddish pink eyes and a solemn stern look with a roundish head and wide shoulders and standing on 2 legs. We try to pull my brother from it then it started screaming and let my brother go. While we were running home it circled us 3 or 4 times screaming. We made to our yard where the light from our porch was on, it stopped and ran across our hog lot. We told our parents but they didn’t believe us till my uncle called a few minutes later saying something big ran across his porch. The next morning we were missing 2 sows. About 7 years later it came again and killed our dog and tore our screen door off. My dad shot it with a 30-06 but did not hurt it. We tracked blood for half mile then it just stopped. The 3rd and last time i saw it was 10 years ago. When me and my brother was working on his chicken house, just about dark when we heard something coming down the creek. My brother said there it is it’s back. We had electricity out there and fliped the security lights on. This thing ran behind the chicken house screaming. We both had pistols with us but we knew thet were useless, it just started to run back up the creek and was gone. But the next morning the chicken house door was tore down and all his chickens were dead. I can’t say that it won’t hurt people because it attacked my grandmother. While she fed her dogs she said it didn’t hurt her because of her dogs which attacked it. She had 10 dogs all big dogs. My brother passed 2 years ago but he still said he could hear the screamer from time to time. Don’t count on it not hurting you. THE END!!!!

Jenn says:

August 26, 2007, 2:54 am

I’ve lived in White Bluff all my life and since I was little I’ve heard the story of the White Screamer, but I’ve never heard of it killing anybody either…I don’t know the exact place that it is seen but I do know that it was mostly seen around turn bull creek. I would like to know the truth in the story, but I’m not sure i want to ever encounter it myself…too big of a chicken for that…they’re a few ghost stories around this area that have been around for years..suppose on trace creek there’s a ghost that goes up and down the road screaming or something, but i’ve never seen it either, and in Burns, Tn, there’s a grave yard off buddy road that we call werewolf springs …that place is haunted and i know it first hand…there’s more places around dickson that’s haunted..you can go on the r.center’s website and they have a speical of haunted places in dickson that they go to and investigate paranormal activities..check it out.

I have lived in Kingston Springs my whole life. I now live in White Bluff and have for 2 years now. I have never heard of this story. I haven’t asked anyone about it though. It’s interesting and I would like to hear people’s stories. Anyways, For those of you who have never heard of White Bluff, it is west of Nashville. Just two counties over.

Genny says:

October 1, 2007, 8:39 pm

This story is so true. My dad lives in White Bluff,where we spend our weekends with him. He lives in a narrow valley, where a creek runs behind & in front of his house. He had just moved into the house,from a house down the street. My sister and I encountered this creature while taking a stroll down the street, it was very tall that stood near 6 foot. It had wierd looking eyes that gazed and stared threw you. It was standing on two feet and it was a whiteish gray. We had been hearing foot steps behind us,but everytime we looked back nothing was there. Then, this thing comes running out of the woods toward My sister & I and we were in shock and couldnt move until my sister yelled run. Then we started running as fast as we could. We ran until we got to our house. It had disapeared when we got to mailbox. About a couple hours later, my sister and I were in our room. She had started to raise the window when the creature started grabbing at her threw the opened part of the window. She started screaming thats when it started screaming .So, I could’t hear her. Then, I pulled at her and kicked and screamed. Until, our dad came into our room. Right, when he was turning the door knob the creature fled. While, it was tugging and pulling at her,It felt like he was staring threw me and I knew it wasnt going to be the last time we would see it.Until, this day We havent encountered it,yet. But, we are heistant to take long walks down the street now!

This legend is soooo cool! Like a Big Foot type of story. They should do a documentation on it on Discovery Channel or A & E. Awesome story!

Susan says:

It’s a bigfoot. No kidding. It’s a bigfoot. Bigfoot has been spotted just on the other side of the river from there.

Tammy says:

My name is Tammy. I am 34 years old. I do have to say that this is the first time that I have ever heard this story. I and alot of friends use to swim down at Turnbull Creek, Slater Bottom and Leatherwood, when we were younger. Never have I seen or heard anything like this. My grandparents live on Joslin Branch and has lived there all their lives. My grandmother is one to tell alot of folk tales but this one I’ve never heard. I’ll make it a point to ask her.

Jessika says:

October 10, 2007, 6:59 pm

well, just like the majority of the people that have commented here i too am from White Bluff. i hear this story every year and it just cracks me up how much the tale changes. even so, this our town tale and ever place has one. i just hope that one day this story will actually have a scream of evidence to prove that it is true.

J.J. Anderson says:

October 14, 2007, 12:31 pm

True or not, I find this story interesting. But I don’t like the bigfoot/other monstrous creature angle. I’ve never found those types of things scary in movies. I much prefer the demonic or ghostly. I’ve recently started writing scripts and would like to build a story around the legend of the White Screamer, so I’d really appreciate it if anyone who actually lives in White Bluff, TN would email me with any stories and/or experiences they’ve been told by grandparents, etc. I’m also interested in knowing which areas of White Bluff are somewhat isolated from the communities and are also said to be haunted by the White Screamer.

The story that was printed out. Makes it more of a Hollywood movie. I always heard that a panther scream sounds like a human woman screaming for help.

This story has been told for many, many years. It; along with the tale of werewolf springs are part of Dickson County’s history, true or not, these stories have been told by many grandparents, parents, uncles, and old timers. When it comes to paranormal activity, no one story is more true than the other. Its all about what you believe or don’t believe in. And it is what this website is all about. So…why put down people and say it’s BS? If you’re reading it, you must believe in it someway or another.

I HAVE COMMENTED ON HERE BEFORE ON HOW I HAD INTERVIEWED MANY PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR ENCOUNTERS WITH THE
“WHITE SCREAMER.” I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR LIKE 4 YEARS TO SEE THIS CREATURE AND I FINALLY DID. AND LET ME TELL YOU, IT IS MORE REAL THAN I EVER IMAGINED! THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE VERY SKEPTICAL, BUT YOU SHOULD NOT BE AT ALL. I SWEAR IT EXISTS. AFTER SEEING IT I PERSONALLY BELIEVE IT IS A YETTI(IN MORE COMMON TERMS, A BIG FOOT).MY BOYFRIEND WAS BRINGING ME HOME ONE NIGHT AROUND 9PM. OUT WHERE I LIVE IS BACK WOODS. NEAR LEATHERWOOD AND NARROWS OF THE HARPETH. WE WERE COMING AROUND A TURN AFTER COMING OFF THE 2ND BRIDGE WHEN WE SAW SOMETHING STANDING IN THE CLEARING IN FRONT OF THE TREES, BUT IT WAS FAIRLY CLOSE TO THE ROAD. AT FIRST I JUST FIGURED IT WAS A DEER OR COYOTE BECAUSE IT WAS ALREADY TOO BIG TO BE A RABBIT OR SOMETHING. THEN AS WE GOT CLOSER I REALIZED THAT IT WAS ABSOLUTELY HUMONGOUS! I STILL CANT GET OVER THE FACT OF HOW BROAD ITS SHOULDERS WERE. THE FIRST THING I NOTICED WAS THAT ITS EYES GLOWED BRIGHT RED IN THE HEADLIGHTS, AND THE EYES WERE QUITE LARGE THEMSELVES. SECONDLY I NOTICED THAT IT WAS WHITE. THATS WHEN I STARTED TO GET SCARED. WE STOPPED THE CAR NOT THINKING ABOUT THIS THING THAT WAS ACTUALLY STANDING IN FRONT OF US. I YELLED AT MY BOYFRIEND TO “DRIVE!”. WE STARTED DRIVING AGAIN IN DISBELIEF AND HE ASKED ME IF I WANTED TO GO BACK AND I SAID NO.I WAS SO TERRIFIED THAT I STARTED TO TEAR UP. SURPRISINGLY HE DID TOO EVEN THOUGH I HAD TOLD HIM OF THE CREATURE BEFORE HE JUST ALWAYS MADE FUN OF ME. THIS PROVED HIM WRONG AND HE KNEW IT. WE PULLED UP IN MY DRIVEWAY WHEN MY LITTLE SISTER CAME OUTSIDE TO GREET US AND I YELLED “GET INSIDE NOW!”. SHE HEARD THE FEAR IN MY FIRST SO SHE DID WHAT SHE WAS TOLD. AFTER CALMING DOWN FOR A FEW MINUTES MY BOYFRIEND LEFT. HE CALLED ME ABOUT 5 MINUTES LATER COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT. WHILE HE WAS GOING BACK AROUND THAT TURN HE SAW IT AGAIN BUT IT WAS RIGHT NEXT TO THE ROAD AND WATCHED HIM AS HE PASSES LIKE IT WAS WAITING FOR HIM TO GO BY, WHEN MOST ANIMALS WOULD RUN OFF OR ACT SKITTISH. BUT IT JUST STOOD THERE AND WAS COVERED IN WHITE HAIR, STANDING ON TWO FEET AND WAS HUGE. IT WAS MORE REAL THAN ANYTHING.

HEY I’M NOT SURE WHAT IS TRUE OR NOT. THESE STORIES ARE ALL A LITTLE FAR FETCHED. THE SUBJECT CAME UP TODAY AT WORK ABOUT HAUNTINGS AND I SAID THERE WAS THIS PLACE “WEREWOLF SPRINGS” BUT I COULDN’T REMEMBER THE STORY. IF ANYONE OUT THERE KNOWS THE “REAL STORY” PLEASE POST IT. I KNOW THERE WAS A DOCUMENTARY DONE ON THIS NOT TOO LONG AGO BUT CANT RECALL WHAT CHANNEL IT WAS ON. I’VE NEVER HEARD OF THE “WHITE SCREAMER” BEFORE TONIGHT. I’D REALLY LIKE TO KNOW A LITTLE HISTORY ON THE AREA AND HOW THIS SO CALLED CREATURE HAS CO EXISTED WITH THE COMMUNITY FOR SO LONG….LOL…..

This is a very interesting story. I love to read and hear about stuff like this! A lot of the comments left were very amusing also. I enjoyed reading them all. However, there is a possible explaination to this phenomenon. As we all know, there is a population of Black Panther’s here in Tennessee. I moved down here several years ago from Ohio and we also had Panthers up there. I got a call one day from my sister in law, she was excited saying that there was a white Panther on the rocks above her house. I thought, “Yeah, Right” but went right over there any way to see. I looked through the scope on her rifle and sure enough there was a VERY large white panther laying up on the rocks in the sun. He was swishing his tail, which was really long, back and forth and watching us while we were watching him! That was the most beautiful sight I have ever seen! Noone else said a thing about seeing that white panther, but it was there, I saw it with my own eyes along with my sister in law and her six kids and my husband. Panthers scream like a woman and make other sounds that sounds like a little child crying and whimpering. I’ll bet that is what the white screamer is. When people see things like this and there are stories about monster’s and unidentified creatures they are scared and think they see something they don’t. I believe there are unexplained creatures out there, I have seen ghosts and spirits myself and have a good pic of one on my back porch, so I am not a “nay sayer” in any way. But I do believe in trying to find a rational explaination if one exists.

I want to go there. See if I can see that thing. It sounds so cool and I totally believe in it. I believe in just about all the ghost stories I hear, but most of the time I have to see it to believe it. My family and I go to alot of the places that ghosts supposedly live. I just wrote a comment at the bottom of Sleepy Hollow Lane talking about a ghost site I visited. So cool & scary at the same time!!! lol Take a look at it if you read this.

Just found this site. Although I never needed extra proof because I saw the White Screamer (great name, by the way) with my own eyes, it helps to know more people have seen this creature. We always called him or her the White Man. My now ex-husband, myself and our daughter saw the White Screamer in 1986 between Hogin Rd. and Gum Branch Rd (also known as Lime Kiln Road) in Burns, TN. We were taking a hike and it was getting close to dusk, so we decided to start towards home on foot. We were coming out of the woods to a cow pasture and home was on the other side of this cow pasture. When we first saw the White Screamer he was crouched down just staring at the cow pasture. We must have made some noise in the woods and brush, because he stood up and turned around to face us. I think we startled him, and he sure startled us. My uneducated guess is he was about 7 feet tall, with longish, mostly white and cream-colored fur. This White Screamer stood there for a few seconds and we all just stared at each other. We were about 25 ft. away from him (or her). Then the White Screamer bolted for the cover of the woods. I have never seen anything run so fast with huge strides. I mean, even the Cheetahs on TV. This thing was FAST. As the White Screamer ran, he kept looking back at us. I guess to make sure we were not going to follow him. I said to my husband, “What the hell was that?!?!?!?” From what I hear from my daughter in recent times, he does not like to talk about this encounter.

Anyway, my daughter does not remember. She was only a year old and on my ex-husband’s shoulders at the time. I know of two other people that have seen the White Screamer. One is a current sister-in-law and another is an old friend. All of these sightings took place on Gum Branch (or Lime Kiln Rd.) in Burns, TN.

Three other notes I thought were interesting: 1) The White Screamer did NOT have a tail and he was bipedal.

2) There is a fascinating place on Gum Branch Road called Underground City. I believe it is now privately owned, but it would be the perfect “hideout” for the White Screamer!

3) There are numerous accounts of mutilated cattle/calves in this area, at least there was in the 1980″s.

Don’t put all your eggs in the science basket, because the scientists have’nt been able to prove the existence of a bipedal 7 ft. mammal yet!

I was researching haunted places in Tennessee after a trip to Shiloh National Battlefield when I came across this site and stories of the White Screamer. Whatâ??s interesting is that Iâ??ve lived in Middle Tennessee all of my life and have never hear of this storyâ?¦ but, it does seem to fit in with an experience that myself and another friend of mine had about twenty years ago.

Before getting married, I was a hunter and fisherman. I liked fishing better so when my new bride asked me to choose one over the other, I chose fishing. I was already growing tired of getting up at three in the morning and trekking through the woods at 32 degrees only to come home empty handed except for a few sightings, so giving up hunting wasnâ??t an all together bad thing. Plus, hunting pressure was growing and finding a decent place to hunt was a chore in itself.

Anyway, this has all reminded me of one hunt in particular in White Bluff. A family friend of our owned a home on Old Hwy 70 just as you enter Dickson County, and we were always invited to hunt the wooded areas behind their home. The family even kept a little travel trailer there hooked up with electricity for us to use when we came, although most of the time we stayed in their home. This trip however, we stayed in the trailer since the family was away. Our plan was to stay there for four nights, hunting each morning that we were there, or until we each bagged a deer. The first day there, we mainly searched the area over. We noticed tracks and followed them deep into the wooded hillside until they finally disappeared altogether, but we were excited to have tracked them as far as we did. The next morning we were going to retrace our selves by following the little reflective trail tags that we had secured to branches on our way out, setting up a watch at a couple of key openings in the woods. Surely if the deer were using this as a trail, we would at least get a glimpse of a couple. We just hoped that there was a buck in the mix.

On the following morning, we woke up somewhere between two-thirty and three oâ??clock as we had planned, got dressed and set out to follow our trail. White Bluff is a very dark place at that time of the morning I want to add, even though Nashville isnâ??t all that far away, you still canâ??t get any benefit from the city lights here. We each had a flashlight though, and started looking out for that first little glimmer of reflection of the trail tags. My friend was the first to spot one, so I followed him through the thicket and into the woods. We trailed the tags for about a half mile to where we wanted to set up our first post in a small, but visible clearing where we could watch the trail from a western view. I would stay here with the sun rising behind my back while my friend walked on toward the next area. Luckily, the wind was in my favor that morning and was hitting me directly in the face.

I sat there in the dark waiting for that first glimpse of sunlight for what seemed like a long time. Finally, I was becoming aware of the growing sunlight and watching diligently as the light began making funny shapes around me. Iâ??m normally a little freaked out by these things, but this morning I was pretty calm as I thought for sure that I would take my buck on the first real hunting morning on this ridge. That would soon change as my friend would come wandering back towards me making more noise than a bear! He told be to come down from my tree and to get the hell away. I questioned him on what was bothering him and he told me of some crazy thing that had scared him from his hunting area. Needless to say I was pissed because I just figured that the shadows were playing around with him as they had started doing to me, but since the whole area was compromised for the morning, I returned back with him to the trailer. I kept asking him what it was that spooked him, but he would not sayâ?¦ I figured that he was too embarrassed to admit early morning jitters had gotten to him but I harassed him about it anyway. I took a nap and let him deal with whatever it was that bothered him.

That night, we rode down to Joeâ??s White Bluff Bar-B-Cue for some sandwiches. When we got back we started a little campfire and sat around waiting to go to bed. While sitting there I started poking a little more fun of my friend asking him if he was going to get scared again, but could see that it may just happen. Still, he never said a word and when the fire had waned, I got ready for bed. That was when I first heard what you may be calling the White Screamer. There was a loud piercing scream from the direction that we were hunting that very morning. I looked over toward my friend and he was literally shaking and finally said, â??Whatever is making that noiseâ?¦ is what I think I saw this morning!â? Still, I doubted my friend, but the noise wasnâ??t about to end there as another loud scream echoed from the woods. I went into the trailer to get my rifle. For a minute, my friend thought I was going to go out searching for whatever was making that noise, but there was no way I was going in there alone. There was also no way I was going to site here unarmed either, and this is what I told my friend. All throughout the night we heard this thing â??screamingâ? and at times it didnâ??t sound like it was too far away. We both decided to rebuild the fire knowing that neither one of us was going to get any sleep with that noise just beyond our site, so we spent the night sitting there beside the fire with our hunting rifles.

At one point, I did finally fall asleep. Nothing came out of the woods. Nothing else Iâ??ve ever heard of made that sound again as far as I can remember. Iâ??ve heard deer grunt and squeal before and know that they can be creepy when you donâ??t know what, or where it is, but Iâ??ve never heard this sound again after this one time. The family friends have never heard the noises neither and still say that we let our imaginations get the best of us. I would be inclined to believe it myself but like Iâ??ve saidâ?¦ Iâ??ve heard lots of noises in the dark woods, and none of them compared to this. Weâ??ve both hunted the woods after this and have never had this experience again.

Looking on the map, I see that this area even ties into the stories that are posted here. Trace Creek Road and Leatherneck roads are the first two roads that we would have connected with had we kept walking to the North. Iâ??m not a believer in Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster so Iâ??m still a skeptic, although what I remember of that night is surely sending shivers down my spine today, even twenty years later!

Okay. I have lived in White Bluff all my life. Thats 18 years. I have heard cries && screams through out the night plenty of times. I have even seen some freaky stuff. I have seen some big things run through my back yard. My family has always had alot of animals && they would go crazy because something was in our woods at night. I’m not sure if this is because of the such called white screamer, but White Bluff is most deffinatly haunted by something strange. I’m not sure if it can hurt anybody or not, but it needs to be investigated or something!

Ashlee Hope says:

October 22, 2008, 12:08 am

Oh, && by the way, lived at 3285 Trace Creek Road. Just to let ya’ll know I’m not lying about anything I said! I still live in White Bluff at a different house on the weekends when I’m not at college && it still freaks me out!!! WARNING THIS IS ALL TRUE && IT DOES EXSIST!!!

Ashlee Hope says:

October 22, 2008, 12:30 am

Also, if you want the experince of being around this creature, I can tell you were you can camp which is just right where this whole thing started. If your on Hyw 70, turn by william james middle school onto Trace Creek Road. Keep going till you go down the big hill. Right as you get to the bottom of the hill, there will be a house on your left && a drive way on your right. Go to the drive way on your right. You will have to go through the creek && up a small hill. There is an old gate but just go over it. This is where i used to hunt during the day, but i wouldnt be caught dead there at night. Sweet dreams to who ever has the balls to go there && stay the night!!!

crazy Bob says:

October 28, 2008, 3:28 pm

ok ya’ll i dont where ya’ll hear this crunk stuff but that is not what the white screamer is. its nothing but animal with a high shrill noise. my family is from whit bluff tn. i think i would now this stuff

Ashlee Hope says:

October 29, 2008, 11:39 pm

Well Crazy Bob, I’m pretty sure I grew up like 15 sec down the road from where it all took place. I’m also sure that the people up on the board grew up in White Bluff as well. I’m certain that something is in the woods of Trace Creek. Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but there is a difference from living in White Bluff && living like right beside the spot it started out…

charlotte says:

October 31, 2008, 8:41 pm

Hey guys I lived in WB all my life and trust me it is SO true. Fact is that it haunts a majority of Dickson County but is commonly sighted around the Jones Creek area. Not sure about the house but most Bluffians know not to do any of the stupid chants or call the beast out. Trust me you DON’T wanna mess with this beast.

Jeneen says:

March 19, 2009, 6:26 pm

I am The second in comand of the Dickson County Ghost Hunters 07 team and we are very interested in trying to locate this creature if it indeed exists, and we will not harm it.

I am a teenager, and I have lived my whole life in White Bluff, TN. Yes, I have always heard about the legend of the white screamer my whole life. I’ve even had one of my teachers tell our class the story of the white screamer on halloween. Just a few minutes ago i was out in our woods beside our field. I was walking with my jack russel dog, Junie. I was listening to music as I was walking down a hill to a creek, when I suddenly heard a wierd, loud scraping sound. I quickly took my earbuds out of my ears and turned my head towards the noise by instinct and saw something white blurring past on a clearing on a hill on the other side of the creek. It disappeared into the woods next to the clearing. I glanced at my dog and she had frozen too with her head inclined towards the noise, and I heard the noise again, confirming that I had heard it the first time. I went towards it but didn’t go very far, for I was in the woods when I wasn’t supposed to be. My dad is pretty strict on staying out of the woods without someone else. So I went into my room and got on the internet and looked up creature sightings in middle tennessee. All I found was something about a mothman and the white screamer, so I decided to follow that lead. I honestly feel quite silly about going to paranormal and haunting sites, but all I know is that I saw something today and I have no earthly idea what it was. It was huge and blindingly fast…it didn’t exactly scream but it made a very loud wierd noise…please don’t call me crazy…does anyone else know anything about what I witnessed???

Rachel says:

March 19, 2009, 6:49 pm

Oh, and I live just off of Jones Creek road on Dawson Rd. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. And also, I have been at my friends house and heard something screaming in the woods. She lived on Byrd Rd. Also, the other day my dad took his daily walk (he just had back surgery and he has to walk everyday to help it heal) and he came back telling me that he kept hearing a growling noise beside him in the woods, but he didn’t see anything. I just want some answers, please. Things have been happening around our house for years…

I’ve seen this “mystical creature” myself and is not so mystical as everyone believes, and yes she does stand about 9 foot tall and has a somewhat hooded cloak on it. The screams that she imits will drive you insane and almost in to a paralytic stage. You dont have to believe it if you dont want but i know what i saw and i know that its true.

I think one thing that should be mentioned is that cougars or mountain lions can pretty much perfectly mimic the sound of a woman crying and screaming especially when it has been infected with rabies so could it be possible that this is just a cougar attack over exaggerated?

First off, come one guys, there is absolutely no grounding for this story whatsoever. Not even a an ounce of proof. Really.. lets get real here guys, get some sort of evidence, a few pictures, anything. “THIS IS A TRUE STORY, I SWEAR” isnt going to cut. I don’t give a damn if you “saw” it if you can’t prove it. Really…
Going back to Melody Griest in March of 2008.. get real, how many times have we proven with our wildlife research we DO NOT have a population of panthers here in the east coast of the US.. we sure don’t have any WHITE PANTHERS.. come on guys. And for that matter, here in Tennessee, we don’t even have a population of mountain lions.. nay, we have zero mountain lions.
People, you want someone to really believe you, please bring some proof to the table. I know some of these listing are just jokes, but some of you all are completely serious and I think its ridiculous. Lets get real, you all have cell phones, take a damned picture and post it and don’t give me this, it was too fast or I was too scared to move ****, you want us to believe it, prove it.

K guys. R are all wrong. I met the white screamer and he’s actually quite a nice fellow. He liles cheez-its, Samford and Son, and he’s an avid classic rock fan. He even said he’s a democrat

TRG says:

March 9, 2010, 11:14 am

I can personally verify that this is true. I have hunted the white screamer and watched it kill my best friend. Those of you who are skeptics that is fine, but I assure you it is real.

I lived in TN for 23 years and I am 28 and this is the first time i heard a story of White Bluff Screamer. I heard of Bell Witch a lot but never White Bluff Screamer.

The supposed white screamer has also been seen in Knoxville. It is about 5ft. 2in height, weighs about 130lbs. It’s even been identified as a female. It shares the same last name as myself. OMG. It’s sitting in my lazy boy at this very moment. What a monster. Hey, it’s my wife.

Listen all you ones who do not believe in Berry’s story of the white screamer, I’m here to tell you the story is true. I’m from White Bluff I was raised in one of those hollers that is mentioned Sulfer holler and one night my uncle was walking home like he always did and the road to sulfer holler is pretty dark with only a couple of lights, anyways as he was walking home he kept hearing footsteps behind him but there was nothing there, as he would walk faster the footsteps would walk faster, at this time he was getting pretty damm freaked out so he started running well it did to as he got close to our home he looked back to see what it was he wished he never had. he was screaming so alwful that my granny and pawpaw, and my mom ran out on the pourch to see what was going on and thats when they seen why my uncle was running and screaming. Yes it was the white screamer, when my uncle got up to the pourch this thing ran in the corn field across from our house, On up to the day my uncle died he would talk about this thing and you could see the fear he had in his eyes taling about it. My family always said they never seen anything like it. As soon as it hit the holler that night they said they heard the most hair raising scream they ever heard, it gave them chills, But as far as I know it has never harmed anyone. I think its just as courious about us as we are of it. But even though I love White Bluff and miss sulffer holler I dont think I want to find out.

I saw the white screamer…it IS real!!! i was outside when i heard a loud scream…first the scream of a woman then of a baby crying..it was so weird.. at first i thought it was a coyote, so i ran inside and got my brother, and we went outthere with a flashlight…we both saw a Misty-white silloete (idk how to spell) and it screamed and dissapeared…we went to where the ground it was standing over..and it was all mashed, and twisted and burned…the grass was knee high too! IT IS REAL…TRUST ME!!!

I have never seen the White Screamer, but a few of us in a group ghost hunted in the area where the White Screamer is rumoured to be inhabiting…White Screamer? Maybe…Haunted?!??!!?Yes,very and intelligent…We did capture many EVP’s of all ages along with orbs, faces, and an apparition of a dog stretched out by someone in the group’s feet. For the skeptics,(I would be too if I wasnt there)- check out Myspace-Hickman County Paranormal Group for the Werewolf Springs pictures…Contact me with any questions, and by the way-I did go to the library to look the history up, many deaths in the family around the same time, but there is no reason stated…If anyone has anything solid please share!!!Thank you

Well I have lived in White Bluff all my life ..(33yrs) and I grew up down at the bottom of Trace Creek rd.. in the Hollow, or I like to pronounce it ..the hollar lol. And I have heard things that screamed and wailed and made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. There was even once when I was younger, a friend of mine and myself saw something in the woods in the middle of the night. I wont say it was that, but this thing was HUGE and red eyes that stared back at us. And when it took off running deeper into the woods, you could hear its feet hitting the ground as if it where loud thumps that were far apart from one another. Not sure what it was, but I plan to find out one day.

People fear and cannot except what they do not understand. they always want proof, and yet I ask this question … do they believe in God and chances are they will say yes … then in turn I will tell them to “show me proof” I want to see a picture of him. and they can not do that, so therefore they are asking for something that may be impossible for another to provide themselves. I have lived in White Bluff for over 30 years, I have seen strange things , I have heard strange things. Yes there was at one time a black panther that lived in the woods .. but it never bothered anyone. it rarely came out of of the woods except to go to the creek and no one ever bothered it. Not sure if its still around though. It was 20 years ago when i seen it. I didnt believe it at first either, except from what I had heard from 4 other people.After I seen it, I knew it was really there. Same goes for the White Screamer. wether you believe in it or not, once you encounter it, you will believe.

The story above was the same as what I read in a Haunted Tennessee book. I think it said it hovered above the ground, was covered in flames, and had a skull head. True or not not, that story left an impression on me. Scary but something I almost would want to see if it was safe.

Hey Barry, here’s a joke for you:

It was obviously a stupid Jersey Devil who came to Tennasee for a family reunion! What, it wasn’t funny??

Hmmm. Never heard of this but have heard a very loud screaming sound of which I thought it was a person. It was repetitive every night and very annoying. Turned out to be a fox!

Mejiko says:

I have heard of it. And I’ve lived in TN all my life. People don’t speak of things they haven’t seen for themselves, I’d assume. But I’ve heard from several sources….that “SHE” has the hindquarters, upper half is like that of a human woman with blank features similar to a wolf, very tall, long white hair, I’ve heard both black and red eyes. Maybe theirs more then one. Unable to tell if is’ a preditor or prey base on it’s eyes. Buddy of mine made multiple hunting trips out to white bluff. One time he said he’d went to retrive the dear he shot sqaure in the dome and it gone before he got to it. He only found the slattered brain matter. Out of all of his trips on randon times his kill would disappear. After all that he decided he’d wait before retreiving it and looking through his scope from his tree stand and there she stood, briskly making her way away from the scene of the kill. So on occaion he said he shoots one for her and waits quite a while and shoots one for himself.

The person who posted this has the Whitebluff Screamer and Warewolf springs stories mixed. the story that is told is of the Warewolf that escaped from the train that derailed years ago in white bluff it was a circus train and the group fixed the train and got out of town befor telling anyone what they had lost. the creature then started killing…

Woodson says:

October 1, 2014, 11:52 pm

Um ya I have lived in tn all my life and I would really be game on camping out so I can hear the scrames but I do believe that a train derail and a wolf killed the family crazier stuff has happened…..I guess anyways

I have seen this. I was driving my kids home from school the back way. I noticed something large and white going through the woods.This was about 1986-87 time period. My son and his friend also saw it in the early morning hours. It was getting road kill from the side of the road. This was in the 1990’s. They heard it scream. It scared them to death.
