Bellwood Cemetery

Address: Hwy 41N Adams, TN

This cemetery is the resting place for many Bell family descendents. The obelisk in the center memorializes John and Lucy Bell, who are reportedly buried along with children and several slaves on private property in Robertson County. Inside is a monument to the Bell family, best known for the famous Bell Witch haunting, a reputation that the town celebrates with festivals and acclaimed theatrical performances every October. The Bell Witch Cave, Bell cabin and farm, Bellwood Cemetery and Adams Museum and Archives all tell part of the story of what has been called America's greatest--and most documented ghost story. It's a tale of terror and trouble that even snared a future president, Andrew Jackson, and inspired countless movies and stories.
