The Bell Witch legend goes way back to the early 1800s when John Bell bought a property in the then called Red River, Tennessee and moved his family from North Carolina. The name of the town has since changed to Adams, Tennessee. John Bell acquired more land and he had a total acreage of 328 acres. He had six children in total, three born in North Carolina and three in Tennessee namely, Betsy, Richard and Joel. He began farming on his land and one day while he was out in the fields, he encountered a strange looking animal in the middle of the crops. He did the only natural thing he could do. He shot at it and missed, but it disappeared. However, later that night at the dinner table, the family began hearing strange noises and knocks on the walls of the family’s log house.
