The little white and red house right behind the bank on Jones Circles is a true ghost house. I lived there for several years. I know of at least 4 haunted places in Cocke County, on Robinson Street house and on Woodson Road. I have seen a small black child cross the road and go into the bank. Blue house on right going toward the French Broad River on the right on highway 321 is also haunted. I have seen each of these things myself in Cocke County. I have
lived in Cocke county for 35 years, and I am 65 years old. These are the ones I have seen myself.|

I lived in this old brick house on N. Main Street for about 1 year. The place had not been lived in for several years when I started renting it from the owner. I was informed by a neighbor that the residence used to be a rooming or boarding house. The upstairs area was used by farmers coming onto town to sell vegetables to the local cannery, now known as Con Agra, I believe.
While living in this house I would come home sometimes late at night and find lights on upstairs in the old rooming house area. I would go up, turn the lights off, and several days later I would find the lights on again. Also I heard on MANY occasions walking and people talking upstairs late at night. The place was always ice cold, and many times I would go into the kitchen and find all the drawers and cabinets open. I finally moved out after seeing an apparition several times staring at me from the end of the hallway and from the bathroom door.
There was only ONE key to the upstairs area, and the ONLY way to enter the upstairs was by an old steel stairway behind the building. After a long investigation I was able to determine that several deaths had occurred in the building over the past 100 plus years that the place has been there. It absolutely made a BELIEVER in the paranormal out of me whereas I was a TOTAL skeptic before all this occurred.
