House: Murrell’s Hideout


No Image

Location: Farmington, Tennessee, USA
Built: Unknown
Status: Burned down

History

The house served as the hideout for John Murrell and his outlaw gang (hence the name ‘Murrell’s Hideout’), and they often met up there to discuss things. One night, an argument about money erupted and it resulted in the killing of one of the gang members. Oddly, the blood stains refused to be washed away when the rest of the gang tried to cover up the evidence. A later resident of the house, Mrs. W. C. Ransom, covered them up by applying wall paper. In 1968, the house was struck by lighting, caught fire, and burned to the ground. The killed outlaw is still said to haunt the area, even though the house was destroyed.

      7. now you’re mention it… actually it has to be. But I guess, since they’re not really alive alive they don’t have energy and therefore never get tired. right?

      8. True, true….but I think you’d hit a point where you’d just want out of it…and suicide isn’t exactly an option that’d work….
