The Witch of the Nolichuckey

Episode Summary

This Halloween episode from the vault (October 2014) follows a traveling writer in the 1930's who comes to a small town in East Tennessee with lots of secrets to hide, including a haunted doll, the Historic Chester Inn ghosts, and the Witch of the Nolichucky River. The Heritage Alliance's Deborah Montanti also pays a visit to refute some of the more silly assertions about the ghosts of Jonesborough (or tries to do so!) in the "Ask the Historian" segment.
