The Bell Witch appears in Alabama

The Bell Witch legend is one of the South's best known hauntings, but few people realize that there also have been reports that the witch was active in both Alabama and Mississippi as well as Tennessee.

The alleged Alabama sighting took place in Lauderdale County in 1912 and involved a strange dog-like animal similar to the one reported in the original Tennessee accounts of the Bell Witch haunting.

The incident was reported in Alabama newspapers that year and attracted considerable attention.
