Tennessee Ghost Stories: The Old Haunted Inn

The oldest city in the Volunteer State is also one of the most haunted. In 1797 local physician, Dr. William Chester built an inn along a stage coach route in the heart of downtown Jonesborough, Tennessee. Notable politicians such as John Sevier, James K Polk, Andrew Johnson and Andrew Jackson often stayed in the inn during trips to and from Washington D.C.

Even though the Chester Inn is a now museum, there are still some old guests that never checked out.

People who work in the building often hear children giggling followed by the sounds of disembodied footsteps racing up and down the stairs.

But it’s not just children haunting the old inn. The apparition of an old man has been spotted inside the building and walking around the property. Anytime someone approaches him, he slowly disappears right in front of their eyes.
