Apparently, former US President Andrew Jackson was so scared of the Bell Witch Cave, he allegedly said, "I would rather face the British Army than to spend another night with the Bell Witch."
There are a lot of creepy places where people don't visit out of fear or they believe evil lurks there. One such haunted place has been present for a long, long time, right outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Regarded as one of the most haunted and paranormal spots in the world, some locations in and around Bell Witch Cave are home to countless creepy stories. According to Narcity, The Bell Witch Cave Tours told the publication that visitors have to sign a waiver form before they enter. The form states that the cave is natural and that in case anything happens, they are responsible for themselves. Well, that is truly spooky.
Anyone who has the idea about Bell Witch knows she does not take it kindly to humans. She is the name that children dare to say in front of the mirror in the dark during slumber parties and a very few dared to say her name out loud. The main story that has given the place a haunted reputation is as follows: During one late summer of 1817, an evil witch started terrorizing the Bell family on their farmhouse in Tennessee. Legends say that the witch would keep everyone up at night by making strange and eerie noises. She also had a habit of beating up the family members and eventually poisoned and killed the head of the family, John Bell.
The vengeful spirit now started torturing Betsy Bell, John Bell's daughter and tortured her severely until she called off her engagement. These stories became so famous and widespread that former President of USA, Andrew Jackson visited the property, but was soon scared away after visiting to investigate the alleged hauntings. He allegedly said, " I would rather face the British Army than to spend another night with the Bell Witch."
But there is also one story that differs from the very torturous nature of the Bell Witch. Many have claimed that once the witch even saved a child from inside the Bell Witch Cave.
Keeping the argument of what is true and what is not, the place has become a tourist attraction and you can visit the Bell Farm and the Bell Witch Cave. Many people who have already visited the place have vowed never to place a foot anywhere near it again. In case you are interested, the haunted tour lasts around an hour and a half and even if you don't encounter the Bell Witch herself, you are sure to get a creepy vibe from that place.
