For those of you that live in Tennessee, there is a place called Werewolf Springs located in Dickson County, Tennessee,  where as legend has it, lives a werewolf.

The legends and stories which are told by locals say that in the 1860s a circus train derailed, spilling its cargo.  One of the things the circus train was carrying was the “Wolfmen of Borneo” – two supposed “wolfmen” (or werewolves) who were part of the circus attraction.  They say that when cleaning up the wreck, the two wolfmen were never found, dead or alive after the train crash.

Sightings of a creature in the forest surrounding the crash continued for a few years after the train crash.  On various ocassions travelers in the area were followed, chased, or disappeared.  Reported sightings include a huge creature totally covered in hair, and other reports included the sounds of howling.  One report claimed the creature was not hurt by bullets which were shot at it and that it disappeared when daylight came.  To the present day people still hear screams and howls coming from the woods at night.

Although the exact location of the supposed train crash is unknown, sightings have been reported along Trace Creek and Turnbull Creek. Others also say that “Werewolf Springs” is actually “Hall Springs”, an area accessible via a hike, and located in Montgomery Bell State Park in Tennessee.  The area is very woodsy, and various people have reported odd noises in the area – is a werewolf or wolfman still hiding in the woods?

    I have lived in Burns for 20 years. When I was young my brother and I stayed in the woods. One day we found a pit in the ground that looked like some kind of cavern. My dad had killed a big hog the day before only to discover there was something wrong with it. He needed a place to dump it so we told him about the cavern. The next day we dumped the 150 pound hog in hole. The next day my brother and I went to check on it. There was no trace of the hog to be found. No bones, hair or even blood. The hog had seemed to of vanished. There have also been reports of people seeing and hearing something odd. Some have claimed to see a very large human like creature covered in white hair and also a blood wrenching scream that sounds like a woman screaming at the top o her lungs. Some say the scream is so loud it almost stuns you.

    Some friends and I just got back from halls cabin located right by werewolf springs. We left from the shelter because we heard a sound that none of us have ever heard before. It sounded like a man breathing hard and heard howls seconds after. Whether the story was true or not I’m a believer now!

  14. Samuel Dickson says:

    Is it pure coincidence that the Werewolf is the symbol of the Dickson Scottish clan where all Dicksons originate from. Some speculate it was because the werewolf represented the Dicksons as mercenaries, but I’ve also come across a supposed journal entry of a Dickson Clan member stating that they chose the beast as their symbol because they encountered it and it traveled with them through the Highlands.
