Country legend Loretta Lynn has always been an open book when it comes to the intrigue surrounding her 19th century home. Lynn’s haunted plantation sits on her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., a town which she now completely owns. The singer has lived on the property since the 1960s. In recent years, she moved into a newly-built home and no longer resides in the spooky, original one.
It should be mentioned that Lynn has never been shy when talking about her ties to the spirit world. She’s been frank about her psychic abilities and the numerous ghostly encounters she’s experienced.
In 2003, the Travel Channel put out a special detailing the hauntings at the plantation with commentary from Lynn and her family.
Some of Lynn’s bizarre encounters had to do with the “slave pit” located underneath the front porch of the home. The masters used it as a place to keep disobedient slaves. Lynn recalls sitting at home with a friend one day when they heard an unnerving sound. It was the sound of someone walking with chains coming from the slave pit.
Lynn also opened up about trying to call upon the spirits of the house once via a séance. One evening, the singer and a group of friends contacted a ghost that referred to himself as Anderson. On that occasion, the ghost started angrily shaking the table with incredible force. Eventually, it broke after slamming to the floor. After asking around town, Lynn learned that one of the original owners of the home was named James Anderson.
