7. Tour A Real Life Haunted House

Want to see an authentic haunted house in the Smoky Mountains? The Wheatlands Plantation in Sevierville has had its fair share of murder, tragedy, and spooky happenings.

This plantation was once the largest of its kind in East Tennessee and this historic house has been the site of many paranormal investigations. This could perhaps be due to a mass grave in the back of the property Indians who fell in the "Battle of Boydes Creek." The property has seen more than 70 murders and deaths through the centuries. Notably, bloodstains from one murder can still be seen on the parlor room floor.

This historic, and possibly haunted home is open for tours Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Simply give the Wheatlands Foundation a call at (865) 365-1052 and ask about their Ghost Walk Tour.

Every fall, Ober Gatlinburg celebrates the harvest in Bavarian fashion complete with authentic German food, music, beer, and, of course, lederhosen.
