4. The Barren Spots at Witch Dance - Located along the Natchez Trace, the area known as Witch Dance remains a mystery to this day. It is believed that witches gathered in this area to perform nighttime ceremonies, which included dancing. Legend has it that wherever the witches’ feet touched the ground, the grass would wither and die, never to grow again. These barren or “scorched” spots can still be seen and, to this day, nothing grows in their place.
