Ghost Hunt for The Bell Witch: Chapter 3

The three women begin their journey through the old Bell School Building in Adams for two hours. As they walked through the halls, the walls and floors are covered with dust and smog. The air conditioner turned on full blast and the chills crawl up their spines.

Anita, Diana and Rae split up to find clues pertaining to the Bell family. Memoirs, diaries and books from the late 1800’s to jump-start who and what the “entity” is. And discover any witness journals who encountered the figure, itself.

Diana walked inside the library to look for journals dating back to the late 19th Century where many locals and visitors reported in Robertson County several years after the entity haunted John Bell’s family. On a desk nearby was a dusty book titled, “A Haunted Secret on Bell Property,” written by the late Professor Richard Powell. Powell was Betsy’s teacher and husband. He recorded many of the events occurred at the house, describing the strange knocks on the door and Betsy being thrown across the room in thin air with no ghost in sight.

Diana reads as the opening statement in the book follows: “On a dreary night in November 1817, it hasn’t dawned upon me yet as to how powerful the entity surrounding the Bell property is. We are unsure what it is and where it came from nor its main purpose to which it has not finished what they started on this Earth. When it departed, the soul began its taunting and torturing among those they despised the most. And it happened to be John Bell, Sr, the family patriarch.” She grabbed the book and took it with her before the security guard dashed across the school halls with his high beam flashlight. Rae and Anita ran down the hall and out the front door leaving Diana inside for an extra five minutes.

Five minutes have passed and all three of the college women reunited in the parking lot and left the premises before the security guard finds them trespassing on private property.
