When it comes to ghosts in Chattanooga, we LITERALLY wrote the book! Haunted Chattanooga, written by award-winning author Jessica Penot and our own Amy Petulla, & published by History Press, spices the history of the area with legends of haunts all over Chattanooga and the surrounding areas, resulting in a delectably spine-tingling smorgasbord. Warning- this book may be addicting. Possible side effects are shivers, a nervous compulsion to check under the bed, and an unwillingness to put the book down before the last page!

Tiny Chattooga County, Georgia’s bevy of characters ranged from street preacher turned world renowned artist Howard Finster, to a sheriff so imposing, he brought New York City traffic to a standstill, to gay Satanist Dr. Charles Scudder. In 1976 Scudder and his companion Joey Odom brought a houseful of Renaissance furniture, two human skulls and 12,000 doses of LSD from Chicago and built their castle, Corpsewood, by hand in the middle of Trion’s national forest. The pair invited the sketchier side of humanity and, rumor has it, the occasional upstanding citizen on the sly to share sex, wine and more in their Pink Room. The bacchanalia came to an abrupt and bloody end in December, 1982, when Tony West and Avery Brock came calling, bringing a rifle & using the professor’s own revolver. The murders set the stage for a trial vibrant with local color, including a judge who reportedly did not believe the Constitution applied in his territory, a District Attorney who spat tobacco and invective, and eventually a world-renowned lawyer said to be the inspiration for the Matlock television show. Though the case is long gone, Corpsewood continues to haunt Chattooga County to this day. INCLUDES 50+ PHOTOS!
