Why is Nashville So Haunted?

Before the city was known as a haven for musical talent, it was a mere trading post established by the French in the early 1700s. The trading post was known as the French Lick and American colonists established Fort Nashborough at the trading post site. This was the beginning of Nashville, which eventually grew into a prosperous town.

 

The iron industry propelled Nashville to become among the wealthiest cities in the South until the city was hit by a cholera epidemic and the Civil War. After the war, the Ku Klux Klan waged a campaign of violence against free African Americans and their Northern allies in the city during Reconstruction.

Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You've already seen the touristy parts of Nashville

Any trip to Nashville isn’t complete without a visit to the city’s top destinations, such as the Grand Ole Opry, Centennial Park, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. But for adrenaline junkies, all of this can seem a little mundane after a few days of wandering the city. Add a spooky adventure to your itinerary and dive into the hidden, spine-tingling history of the city that the typical tour guide won’t tell you.

Icon
You need to walk off the delicious Southern cuisine Nashville is known for

From southern-style barbeque to Nashville hot chicken, this city is known for its diverse and mouth-watering restaurant scene. If you’re looking to walk off dinner while learning more about Nashville’s haunted history, look no further than a Nashville ghost tour. During your tour, you’ll stop by haunted eateries, including the former Melting Pot restaurant, home to terrifying haunts!

Icon
You want to spice up your bachelor/bachelorette party

You’ve bar-hopped up and down Broadway Street, hit the shops, and may or may not have invested in a pair of cowboy boots — all in preparation for your big day. But don’t you want to make your bachelorette party stand out? Take your group on a Nashville ghost tour and embark on an adrenaline-pumping, spine-chilling adventure with your bridal party for an experience that you’ll never forget.

Icon
You want to experience Nashville's culture like a local

Nashville hosts millions of tourists each year, and for good reason. As fun as it is to fully immerse yourself in the city’s tourism scene, you miss out on so many thrilling experiences when you choose to play it safe by sticking to the usual sites. With a Nashville ghost tour, your guide will catch you up on all of the haunted, goosebump-inducing tales that locals have shared for centuries. 

Icon
You need a break from the country tunes

Spice things up by embarking on a nail-biting tour around town, and experience a different side of the Music City. Learn all about the tormented spirit of Captain Thomas G. Ryman, who’s rumored to haunt the halls of the Ryman Auditorium. Or pop by Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and see if you can spot the eerie apparition of country stars Hank Williams Sr. and Patsy Cline, who can still hear the music.

Icon
You want to learn more about Nashville's grim past

Before it was one of America’s most celebrated, vibrant cities, Nashville was the site of grim violence. Death is built into the walls of the Tennessee State Capitol, where the remains of businessman Samuel Morgan and architect William Strickland are buried in vaults within the building. Their spirits have been reported to scream at each other in the middle of the night, continuing to bicker from beyond the grave.

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN NASHVILLE, TN

Ernest Tubb Record Shop

The Ernest Tubb Record Shop is a fantastic destination for those looking to peek into country music history. Located right on Broadway, the store houses some of the genre’s most famous memorabilia. There have also been some rumors of ghostly figures roaming throughout the site. You’ll learn everything you need to know about the record store and its haunted past on our ghost tour.

Ryman Auditorium

The Ryman Auditorium is known as Nashville's top venue for country music. While there have been many good times shared here, it also has a more eerie side. The auditorium was initially supposed to be a place of worship for residents, but eventually, the city converted it into a music venue. Legend claims that the spirits of fallen country music stars still roam the place they used to play their music for their beloved fans.

Downtown Presbyterian Church

Although this is a place of worship for some, others claim that the church is crawling with eerie vibes. Most of the experiences happen in the church’s cemetery outside. Locals claim that some of those laid to rest never fully passed on and still roam the site. With that kind of spookiness, it’s an absolute must-see on our Nashville ghost tour.
