Copper Ridge Baptist Church
Powell, Tn 37849

County: Knox
WebSite: None

Reports of seeing black figures, moving around inside, and you can hear screams up at the old barn, about 75 100 yards away from the church. Once a group of boys went in with a tape recorder, and left it inside, while they remained outside. On the way home they listened to the recorder, and you can distinctly hear a little girl say " help us." The boys went back and put the tape recorder in the church, overnight. Upon there return, and listening to the tape, you can hear all kinds of things moving around all night, and after the tape had been running for about 15 minutes, you can hear footsteps come up to the recorder and turn it off.

I`ve been to that church before. It was a pretty creepy place. I have a EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) that I took from that church. The EVP is of a guy that says "RICHARD" upon me asking if there was anybody here and me asking what there name was. If i can find the EVP i`ll Post it. sadly the church burnt down mysteriously a few months ago. so now i`m off to find more haunted places in the knoxville area. -ronnie

the church was burned down by boys who lived in the area after discovering heads of farm animals used in satanic rituals. this could be the reason for all the dark shadows and such. that church was notorious for satanic meeting but there was also a plantation nearby prior to the civil war. The old plantaion house still stands down the road about a tenth of a mile. the area is incredibly historical and although i have never seen anything, can expect things to seem mysterious considering its history

my brother, some close friends and myself recently went to the property of this church. with exception of one of u in the group, we all have grown up in karns. when the church used to be standing, was always to afraid to visit the church due to the urban tales we heard from people at school. two days ago we went to the remains of the church. All we saw was a graveyard. we walked upon the foundation were the church used to stand. we saw an old metal chair lying on the ground. a member of our group wanted to take a picture with the chair and as soon as i got my camera out to take the picture. we all heard a loud screaming sound so we all ran towards the car, this sound sounded like someone who was in alot of pain and continued to follow us until we got into the car.

The church is gone, but the grounds and cemetery have a definite mysterious "feel." I also caught a male voice "EVP" and I do have it uploaded on Youtube, along with a video of our trip. I love going to these places, I just hope everyone respects the cemeteries and the structures. It is so sad when people destroy their surroundings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhgnd1pM5dc for the EVP of the voice, look for the actual video of the cemetery under my channel.

Is this the same Copper Ridge Baptist Church that had the crosses of light and Angels shinning through the window misteriously in 1996?

I went down there one day, I was taking pictures then I caught a figure of a man about 6"4 and after that plain as day I heard a voice say GET OUT in a really angry tone of voice. After that I finally left then I went to look at all the pictures and they were gone. Then I turned my phone off then back on then they were there again but there was 17 more pictures of it than I had taken. It's a great place for immature ghost hunters. -Hailey

Is this the church that started out seeing colored lights,by entering the church you could look out and see crosses?If this is the one at the corner of emory rd. and it was torn down,this used to be a jail where they held soldiers,a school,an church.I think other things too.
