From hitchhikers to helpful weather watchers to Hollywood stars – ghosts can come in many different forms. There are plenty of ghost stories from all over the country but we narrowed it down to these: the most famous ghosts in American history.

Probably the most famous ghost in American history is the Bell Witch, a poltergeist who messed with the Bell family of Adams, Tennessee, from 1817 to 1821. According to, a spirit claiming to be “Old Kate Batts’s witch” drove John Bell, Sr. and his kids to the brink of insanity with constant knocking and scratching sounds, and physical assaults like hair-pulling.

This phenomena began when John saw a weird animal that looked like a black dog with a rabbit’s head out in his field, which is fairly weird, even by poltergeist standards. While Kate liked to harass the Bells’ youngest daughter Betsy and father John, she showed a lot of affection for Bell’s wife, Lucy, giving her fruit and singing her hymns.

If you’re the kind of person who wants to climb underground and possibly be harassed by a ghost, great news: the Bell Witch Cave, where Kate’s ghost is said to reside since leaving the Bells behind in 1821, is a popular tourist spot.
