Bell Witch: To the rth was the farm of John Bell, an early, prominent settler from North Carolina. According to legend, his family was harried during the early 19th century by the famous Bell Witch. She kept the household in turmoil, assaulted Bell and drove off Betsy Bell's suitor. Even Andrew Jackson, who came to investigate, retreated to Nashville after his coach wheels stopped mysteriously. Many visitors to the house saw the furniture crash about them and heard her shriek, sing and curse. Although these words on Historical Marker 3C 38 call the Bell Witch a legend, many hundreds of visitors to the Bell homestead in Robertson County, Tennessee, witnessed the incredible feats of this spirit called Kate over the course of three years. For the first time, the three original texts that chronicle her reign have been brought together in one comprehensive story.
