I was surfing the web and found a site for Middle Tennesse Paranormal Society. They listed the Old White County Jail 3 times in their past investigations.

1. Old White County Jail -April 26, 2008
2. Return to Old White County Jail-August 30, 2008
3. Old White County Jail revisited-August 15, 2009

Why? I wonder what they found so interesting to want to visit so much. Has anyone ever heard any stories of the jail being haunted?

I've always heard of people being jail birds there and having nightmares for years......or did they just forget to bring their soap on the rope? and the saga begins..........

Come on and tell it! You all know how many people were shot and killed around the square in the old days? It was like the old west.

Found this-

interesting reading. Can't remember if this is the site talks about the half man, half I-don't-know-what that roamed the Lost Creek area. And the one that talks about the graves of the little people and the giants found in White County.
There's a rich history here!

Yes, you are right. They have had the paranormal group there at least 3 times in the last year at the American Legion Bldg. That same group visited the old jail another time too.
We got to listen to the tapes they had after spending the night at the Legion a few times. Pretty interesting. Chairs moving upstairs, big bangs from who knows where? Some humming and laughter, etc. Cool Some people who work there at the building have had several unexplained experiences.
