The Infamous Witch. El Protector. Opryland. The Strange Case of Scenic Drive. Blogger Aunt B. of TinyCatPants uses Google Maps to link to the "locations" of her original Nashville-area ghost stories, one for every day of October. Link takes you to the map; start with "The Infamous Witch."

Um, accidentally hit post before I could give you links to each story; link takes you to the main page for all the stories. Sorry.

Cool - there's a 'haunted location' right around the corner from me.

Unfortunately when I clicked on the "Read the story here" link I got a "Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here" message - which actually describes my experience in this part of Nashville accurately.

Haven't clicked through yet, but I hope the Opryland story is something about the Ghost of Roy Acuff! Bwua ha ha hahhh!

There are very few times I miss Nashville.

This is one of them. The story "Where It Used to Be" actually had me walking the route in my mind.

Thanks, good link.

Isn't the bus station referenced in "Where it used to be" still on 8th ave (at least until they build the new convention center)?

Yeah, it's still there...along w/ the "gentlemen's establishment" formerly known as the Classic Cat.

Jettloe, was it for one of the stories she hasn't done yet? She's only up to 27 or 28 I think, since she's doing one a day.

It would be cool if when you went to street view and rotated around, suddenly a ghost pops up!

Hey, just heard from AuntB that All Things Considered saw her stories over here and now she's going to read some of them on the air. My good deed for the day is totally done.

And now we know that ATC is keeping tabs on the Blue.

Thank you for this! Two Tennessee posts in one day, and a Nashville-centric one as one of them!
