Adamsville - Indian Meadows

Google Map of Indian Meadows in Adamsville, AlabamaThe community of Indian Meadows and its sister community Shady Grove, are both built over an ancient Cherokee Indian burial ground. The two have had several hauntings reported over the last two decades. At night, dark figures have been seen scurrying about in the woods on the outskirts of the neighborhoods.

Some brave souls who dare walk the streets at night say they can feel or even hear someone following them, but turn around to find that no one is there. People have reported hearing scratching noises outside their houses late at night. One man heard scratching sounds on his front porch late at night, and each time he turned on the porch light to investigate, nothing was there. But the next morning he found claw marks down the banister of the porch.

Some see the shadows of people (possibly the spirits of the restless Indians) rushing past their windows at night, but investig ate to find no one outside. In several homes, people have reported hearing footsteps late at night in hallways or on stairs, doors slamming shut by themselves, voices calling out their names, electrical equipment going on and off by itself, and even the sound of someone or something running through the house. In one house, the face of a crying man appeared on several of the doors in the house all at once.

Try walking the streets of Indian Meadows or Shady Grove at night and you just might have your own creepy experience.

Alabaster - Old Buck Creek Cotton Mill

Old Buck Creek Cotton Mill - Alabaster, AlabamaLocated about an hour north of Montgomery, is the Buck Creek Cotton Mill. This building and location has such history we figured it definitely should be listed. The original name of this cotton mill was Suluria Cotton Mill, built in 1896, which was later changed to Buck Creek. Local authorities are well aware of the stories of hauntings, which attracted trespassing, and fenced in and secured the property. The mill was later torn down in 2007, but a few of the original buildings still remain. There is the small jail, office building, and water tower. Locally it is well known as a haunted location, due to the many death that occurred on the site. Supposedly there is blood spots in some rooms, random cold spots, dark moving shadows and some very scary, unexplained noises.

Northport - The Old Bryce Mental Institution

Old Bryce Mental Hospital - Northport, AlabamaOld Bryce Mental Hospital was an African-American hospital in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It opened in 1882 and had a very cruel life up until the 1960’s when it was forced to close. All the remaining patients were moved to the current Bryce Hospital, also located in Tuscaloosa. The hospital is also known as S.D. Allen Nursing Home and the Jemison Mental Institution.

People have reported hearing voices, giggles and telephones ringing, furniture being moved, feeling hair pulled, hearing footsteps in the hall, cold spots, seeing shadows move, feeling like they are being watched, among other things. It is said that the activity is so apparent, that there is no need for any high tech equipment to hear or see anything. On many occasions trespassers (mostly teenagers), have started fires and broken windows on the property. Because of the vandalism it is very dangerous to walk around the site as there is a lot of broken glass through-out and parts of the buildings are ready to collapse. Asbestos is also present. The building is hghly patrolled and trespass prosecution is enforced.

Tuscaloosa - Drish Mansion

Drish Mansion in 1911 - Tuscaloosa, ALThis is an old plantation home, now in the midst of Tuscaloosa. It was built by Dr. John Drish, for his wife Sarah. There are several ghost stories that surround Drish Mansion. The first, reported to be heard time and time again by the Drish's slaves, was the repeated sound of Dr. Drish's last run down the stairs where he died. They heard his running feet, heard his startled cry, and heard his body thud to the floor.

A second ghost, seemingly benign in nature, took to tucking the children of a relative in at night. Believed to be either Katherine or Sarah, the ghost has never been known to be aggressive or threatening, but seems to dearly love children.

The third, and most persistent ghost, has been a thorn in the side of the fire department for decades. First reported by a judge who owned the house, he was interrupted during dinner by a frantic neighbor who banged on his door to tell him his house was on fire. The judge ran out and looked, and the top room of the tower, where Sarah Drish layed out her husband, did indeed appear to be burning. More instances, during which the fire department were called, occurred, but each time, investigation proved there to be no fire. During one such event, a woman who stayed down stairs saw the figure of Sarah Drish appear, letting her know exactly who was responsible for the phantom fires.

Tuscaloosa - Jemison Van de Graaff House

Jemison Van de Graaff House (Old Library) - Tuscaloosa, AlabamaAKA - The Old Public Library on Greensboro Avenue It was one of the first houses of its time to have running water and a coal heating system. Robert Jemison Van de Graff, Jr. built the home in 1859. He was a state senator and the inventor of the Van de Graaff generator.

It is believed that Mr. Van de Graaff's daughter, Priscilla Cherokee and her husband, Andrew Coleman Hargrove, haunt the house. Mr. Hargrove suffered for years from an incurable headache caused by a bullet wound to the head. Eventually he could no longer take the pain and shot himself in the home's library. Priscilla was distraught over her husband's suicide and fell into a deep depression and wild hysteria. After eight years of such suffering, she died.

In 1955, Hugo Friedman acquired this mansion for Tuscaloosa County as a Library. In 1979, after more than two decades in a charming but inadequate facility, the library system moved to its current location overlooking the Black Warrior River.

The following has been reported: A presence is felt in the round room on the left side of building, as if something is watching over you and protecting you. Upstairs, leading to the top turret, a black evil presence is felt, trying to make you fall down the stairs. There's the sensation of something against your back, and the feeling that whatever is up there wants to do you harm. Another presence is felt in the main room at the window. There's the sensation of someone looking out and waiting. In the lower basement level there were tunnels where soldiers hid during the Civil War, and presences can be felt there as well.
