Manchester, Tennessee - Historic Tower House Inn
The Tower House as it is known by locals was built by the main financial contributor to the originating fund for and the First President of People's Bank and Trust Co. Around the time that John P. Adams began to build the tower house both his wife May and toddler son Marion passed away. Until 1943 Mr. Adams continued to live in his wonderful house with tower rising over the structure. He owned several lots which extended well toward the town square and a store which is still located at 210 Spring St. on the historic town square. Since 1963 a few brave individuals have admitted to hearing May weep or show fear during a storm. John is often seen strolling through the house from the men's parlor to the front room which houses a Civil War exhibit. Marion is seen upstairs in the boys' room where he and brother John Jr. would watch for kids to come down the way. Marion is seen at times toddling over to the window. He is a blonde haired boy clothed in a wonderful soft light. There are no bad spirits here. May did show great sadness the day a 1870's period garment was place on display in their master bedroom which is now the main lodging room for the current inn. Several media sources have already noted this haunting including radio and newspapers in Tennessee. The inn is owned by GhostLabs Research Society's Dan and Carol Gist. Carol conducts ghost tours each day or house tours according to visitors requests.

Medina, Tennessee - Hope Hill Cemetery
A young girl was raped and then beaten to death by her uncle. And before he done it he built her a dollhouse-and now if you go to her grave you will see her talking and playing with her dolls in her doll house.- March 2005 update / correction: The little girl was NOT raped by her uncle. The story is - The little girl was killed by a piano which was dropped by the mover her parents hired. Her parents put her 'dollhouse' on her grave because it was her favorite place to play. Also it is told that if you see the light on in the doll house at night she is there playing. Former caretakers of that cemetary report until the new caretaker built a house at the end of the drive. The new caretaker now has a gate up and noone is allowed down the drive from dusk til dawn. Also the story of the light didn't start until YEARS after the little girl was buried. Due to the eccessive amount of partying from teenagers and sickening graffetti as well as littering, the former care taker took a light and a car battery and placed it inside the doll house and would turn it on at night. Also he repainted the doll house. Since then there has been NO defaceing of the property, littering, or teens out partying in the graveyard. After the caretaker moved into his new home the light has been removed.
