You will not want to go very deep.
Some of these passages are very tight!

This cabin, built in the 1810 timeframe by John Bell's family, is believed to be the only surviving structure from the original Bell plantation.  It was used as an outbuilding for many years.  It can be found behind the Bell School building on Highway 41.

This is the interior of the log cabin, showing the fireplace and many antiques.  The house was originally located on the old Bell plantation, but was later moved to the grounds of the Bell School.

The Red River runs thought Montgomery and Robertson counties in Tennessee.  The Bell plantation was situated on the Red River not far from where this picture was taken.  The "Bell Witch" wreaked havoc all along the Red River.

John Bell's gravestone.  The original marker was stolen in the 1940's.  The boy who took the original died a couple of days later.  The marker shown above was placed about 1957.  The new stone is NOT on Bell's original grave.

Thick underbrush is all that remains of the original John Bell cemetery somewhere in Robertson County, Tennessee.  The cemetery has been subjected to both neglect and vandalism over the years.  In addition to John and Lucy Bell, and possibly three of their children, about 25 slaves are buried here.  The cemetery, along with the remains of the old home and well, are privately owned by a foundation.  The public is not permitted to access these areas.

Originally built on land donated by Charles Bailey Bell in 1913, and rebuilt following a fire in 1919, the Bell School served its original purpose until the mid 1970s.  It was later used as an antique mall, and is currently the home of the Bell School Antique Mall and the Adams Museum and Archives.  Many people have reported supernatural encounters while inside the building and on the grounds.  Charles Bailey Bell was the great-grandson of John Bell, of Bell Witch fame.

A number of John Bell's descendants are buried here, including Charles Bailey Bell, who wrote a book about the "Bell Witch" in 1934.  Judge John Bell Turner, who contributed to an earlier account, is also buried here.  Many visitors to Bellwood Cemetery have described encounters with the supernatural.
