BROWNSVILLE TN (October 18, 2021): Who doesn't love a good ghost story, especially this time of year when the weather begins to cool and leaves begin to fall.

Legends and lore have been passed down through the ages. You know, those stories we first heard from our parents and grandparents, especially the ones meant to scare us into acting right or staying away from certain places. Are they true? Maybe. We certainly have our share of ghostly or unexplainable accounts in Haywood County.
"We are looking forward to having d in Brownsville and being able to share these Haywood County specific stories with everyone," says Sonia Outlaw-Clark, director of the Delta Heritage Center.
