Families gathered in the pumpkin patch Saturday to hear some spooky stories


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Vistors of Tipton Haynes Historic Site gathered in the pumpkin patch to hear some spooky fables on Saturday.

The event featured storytellers who told old folklore stories, fall-themed stories and family fables.

Co-director of Tipton Haynes Historic Site Wes Spurgeon said, “They tell all kinds of the folk Appalachian stories, they’re with the storytelling guild out of Jonesborough so they have a wide arrange and as it gets a little darker at night they’ll tell some spookier stories.”

Along with hearing stories attendees were able to enjoy fall-themed crafts and a hayride around the historic site.
