Icy Nolichucky River Near Erwin, TN

The Nolichucky River that flows through Unicoi County, TN is a haunted river. Many tragic stories of people drowning in the river's hazardous undertows and jutting rocks can be heard all over Unicoi County. There is an area of the river known as the Devil's Looking Glass. The Devil's Looking Glass is a sheer drop off into the river, and the Cherokee believed that evil spirits dwelt in the cracks and crevices of this area. Judging from the amount of tragedy that has occurred and the bizarre incidents that have occurred, one would think they might have a point.
Among the ghostly images seen along the river are various people who have drown or disappeared in the river, screaming banshees, and even Daniel Boone and John Sevier! One of the most well known is the ghost of Flora, a young lady who drowned in the river during the Great Depression, and whose body was never recovered. Locals have claimed to have seen her walking the banks after dark.
