Blackwell House
Bartlett, tn

County: Shelby
WebSite: None

It is said that no family has been able to live in this exquisite home for more than a month or so.

There are reports of a man walking through the house dressed in his Sunday best all night. It is

said that if one drives by the house at night, either every light will be on or no lights may be on

at all. There is one particular report of a family that awoke one night to find the lamp on the

night stand on. They turned it off. An hour later, they woke up again to find this lamp on. This

time, they unplugged it. A little while later, they saw the bulb glowing again, but the lamp was

still unplugged. Suddenly, the bulb exploded into flames. The next day, they hear that Mr.

Blackwell never let his children sleep in the dark.

Mr. Blackwell is a creepy dude. He freaks me out. Never cared for him.

This house may be in Bartlett, TN. However it is in Shelby County. Your map has Hwy 395 and I-15 which are in California.
