During our production investigations for our Dandridge GhostWalk, many unusual experiences were documented in several buildings throughout the historic district of the town. During this walking tour, our guests will hear the details of many of these experiences, several of which were firsts in our indepth research and studies of the afterlife. Join us for an incredible walk through history and enjoy the recount of our findings in Tennessee's officially second oldest town. Dandridge was a headwaters port along a river that was turned into a lake by the Tennessee Valley Authority, or TVA. A dike was built to keep the town of Dandridge from flooding and the lake provides a wonderful source of recreation for visitors and local residents alike. Make Dandridge a part of your next visit to the Smoky Mountains for a SPOOK-tacular good time!!!
The ARC - Alternate Realities Center is a member supported, not-for-profit organization founded in February of 1994 to study all manner of phenomena that are classified as "the fringe" by most branches of Science. Appalachian GhostWalks was created as a public awareness program of The ARC to reveal the wondrous and often haunting discoveries made at hundreds of Federal, State, and Local Historic Sites throughout our region. Thus, there is nothing false, fictitious, or made-up on any of our tours and vacations package productions - you'll always get REAL Tennessee and Virginia History and TRUE Smoky Mountain Ghost Stories! Through the indepth investigations - conducted before the first walk was ever presented at each location - and by way of the resulting tours which followed, the goal has always been to lend evidence in support of a belief to which so many of us cling. A faith suggestive that when our body stops working there is more which lies ahead for us all. We invite you to come and discover the amazing results of our investigations, in combination with the region's documented history - which actually verified our findings. Facts which will truly give you a spine-tingling feeling for who is haunting these locations and why they are here! Altogether, a positive reflection on the afterlife, appropriate for all ages, and proudly supporting Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
