A few years ago some friends and I went to this bridge where there were supposedly hundreds of african american slaves hanged. I was thinking it was out in Mosheim somewhere, but when I look online it takes me out near Kinser Park. Does anyone know the bridge I'm talking about? If so, where is it located? I'd like to go back out there because when I went the first time, I definitely heard some strange things.

Take the road next to Walmart and go like you're going to the Snapps Ferry. The bridge is at the end of that road. So it's in Afton.

You go down the by pass to Mt. Pleasant rd then take the first road on right past the old store building the name of the road is Hartman rd.

Yeah, it was definitely slaves that they hung there. It's all over the internet if you google it. There are a lot of sites that tell of haunted places in each city, but nowhere has directions.

The bridge burners of Tennessee are all over the internet. The slaves are not because it didn't happen. East Tennessee voted 2 to 1 against secession from the Union. Slavery was not supported much here because we didn't have cotton to pick.

A friend of my cousin's brother-in-law's sister's great aunt had a picture of Barack Hussein Obama's birth in a hut in Kenya, but the CIA confiscated it.

I just did a google search for hauntings in Greeneville. This came up. Little did I know it is less than 1 mile from my house! I've drove by it a thousand times and by the look of it alone I thought it must be haunted. Its time to go do a little investigating!
