Embark on a daredevil walk through haunted and historic Chattanooga and discover the authentic bone-chilling stories of sadness and suffering that continue to haunt the picturesque riverwalk.
What will I see on this tour?
A sinister stroll through Scenic City
The wide sweeping staircases, majestic fountains, and moss covered bridges of the Chattanooga riverwalk take on a more chilling tone under the cover of darkness. The daytime romance of cobblestone walkways and bridges over the Tennessee River gives way to a more macabre version.
Uncover a sordid history of violence, ethnic cleansing, and worse as you walk through the infamously haunted Ross Landing. Thousands of people belonging to the Five Civilized Tribes were forced to begin their doomed journey on the now cursed trailhead, eventually dying in the camps all along the Trail of Tears. Their wandering spirits fled the trail to return home to the place it all began and reclaim, in death, the land that was taken from them in life.
Chattanooga Ghosts will lead you down the less traveled terrifying trail of ghostly tales highlighting the hauntings so prevalent in Chattanooga’s horrific history. Don’t miss a beat, or a story, as you trek through the river city in the dead of night and listen to authentic accounts of Tennessee’s most tragic victims.
The Cherokee Who Returned To Ross Landing After Death
Tensions between the Cherokee people and settlers were high in the 1800’s and eventually led to a widespread ethnic cleansing known as the Trail of Tears, an atrocity that began at Ross Landing. More than 6,000 Cherokee were ripped from their homes around Ross Landing and their pain created a vortex of sadness you can taste in the air. On that day, the first bricks of the foundation of haunted Chattanooga were laid and the pain of those who suffered to build it still lingers on every street and stone of the haunted Tennessee city.
Be careful as you stand on stones that once were home to Cherokee warriors and listen to stories of spine-chilling encounters with fearless ghosts. If you see the vengeful spirit of one of these displaced souls, it may haunt your dreams forever.
Death Still Echoes Haunted Hotel Hallways
Chattanooga was built upon ground infused with tragedy, upon a foundation of skeletons that piled up under the engine of industry. With the rise of the railroad came construction of the city’s first inn, the Old Crutchfield House. Over the years, more than one person has lost their life in the building, now known as Read House. It was converted into a Union hospital during the civil war, where mangled soldiers were sent to either suffer in the excruciating pain of amputations with anesthesia, or just to die.
Visit the Read House on a Chattanooga Ghosts tour to discover horrific stories of loss and jealous murder. Listen for the screams of Annalisa Netherly, who was brutally killed by her ex-lover in room 311 of Read House and watch for the ghosts of Civil War soldiers whose apparitions are said to limp back and forth in front of the windows looking out from the rooms where they took their final breaths.
Ghosts of The Railroad
Slavery, murder and inhumane working conditions were all part of building the railroad that brought life to Chattanooga. Prostitutes and seedy saloon owners risked murder and death to make a dime in the city. The railroad shaped every aspect of their lives and ghosts of those tortured, enslaved and displaced workers still linger to this day.
Embark on a spine tingling walk through the path of Chattanooga’s railroad and watch for phantoms of travelers and workers who will never leave. Uncover stories of headless ghosts and the spirits of limbless Civil War soldiers who wander the streets, still screaming out for help.
