Celebrating 100 Years in 2011, come and tour one
of the most haunted university campuses in the south!!!
Our haunted ghost tour of the campus of East Tennessee State University "digs deep" into the school's past with ghostly visitations and spinetingling experiences back to 1911.
|Who was the screaming ghost of Cooper Hall? What former ETSU President still walks the campus grounds? Who are the ghostly residents of one famously haunted women's dorm? Discover numerous tragedies which have undoubtedly played an important roll in the very haunted nature of the school grounds and learn about the spirits who still haunt the location of the old "stacks" of the former Sherrod Library. Tour nightly with reservations!!!|
It all begins at the toll of the bell,
here, under the ETSU clock tower.
|The answers to these and many other tantalizing questions will place the listener in perpetual state of awe as you wonder at the sometimes unusual, but well documented cases of first-hand, eyewitness experiences. You will thrill to the spine-tingling accounts of the unexplained as described in interviews with many often bewildered ETSU students, staff, and alumni who have either lived at or taught there since 1911...|
In order to create the proper "tone" for this hauntingly, spine-tingling tour, Appalachian GhostWalks begins this GhostWalk at the ETSU clocktower. Your guide will lead you on a journey into the history and mysteries of one of Tennessee's oldest colleges, thought to be one of the most haunted universities in the Southern United States. Guests will thrill to the legends, stories and unusual happenings of the University's past as well as its ghostly present. It's just another exciting way to learn about the area's past and have fun with a chance at your very own experience with the unexplained...

These folks are excellent storytellers with a great combination of history and ghost stories. We received "AAA" treatment with personalized pickup/dropoff locations. Very convenient as we had no transportation. We took our tour in Dandridge and "kudos" to the guide for a great job! Very professional and we'll definitely do some of your other tours when back in area. We were VERY IMPRESSED - well worth the value, plus LOVE that you donate a portion to St Jude's!- Linda and the Dellinger Family
We were visiting from Minnesota and signed up for the Jonesborough GhostWalk! It was worth every penny. We had teens, children, seniors and a toddler along in our group and everyone was totally engaged in listening to the history and ghost stories our tour guide Michael treated us to. We enjoyed it so much we went back to Jonesborough the next day to see everything in the daylight! We would definitely take another tour the next time we are in TN to visit family and would even request Michael as our tour guide a second time. Thanks for a wonderfully spooky and enchanted evening on a Tennessee October night! - Stephanie Cline
Y'all were awesome! I really enjoyed it. Thanks for such a wonderful experience! - Meghan Vannoy

We really had a good time (on the Gatlinburg GhostWalk) and learned alot about the history of Gatlinburg and also about the more positive side of ghosts in general. We're trying to get a group together to come on one of the Bigfoot trips (the Cherokee Bigfoot Adventure Tour) later in the year. We've been telling family and friends about it (our tour) since we returned. Thanks again! - The Johnson Family, SC
