Is Johnny Cash's Jamaica Mansion Haunted?


Could the Johnny Cash House located in Jamaica be haunted? The contributors with Maine-based Mysterious Destinations Magazine certainly seem to think so.

According to the magazine, the home was built in the 1700s and is known by locals as Cinnamon Hill. The house was a former plantation and Johnny and June Carter Cash spent much of their later years at Cinnamon Hill.

According to this article, Cash said he saw apparitions of a woman and young child at the house on several occasions. Cash said the woman looked to be in her 30s and was wearing a full-length white dress.

Cinnamon Hill is open to the public, and many of the Cash family's items remain at the two-story structure. During his time at the plantation, Cash was also inspired to write "The Ballad of Annie Palmer", on his 1973 album, Any Old Wind that Blows.

Don't believe in ghosts or the paranormal? The Mysterious Destinations team touring the house claimed to receive EMF detections as well as a what they call "controversial" flashlight session at the Montego Bay resort.

The house was also explored in 2012 by the television show "Ghost Adventures" which airs on the Travel Channel.

The actual exploration of the house starts at around the 3:30 mark of the video.
