There’s no denying that the backstories to most haunted houses that are set up for Halloween are completely fabricated. However, one that has truth behind it, is Frightmare Manor, located in Talbot, Tennessee. The plantation once belonged to Jeremiah Lexer. That was until 1902, when he slaughtered his entire family inside the abode. He brutally hacked his wife, son, daughter-in-law, and his three grandchildren that were aged four, eight, and twelve, to death before taking his own life. When authorities arrived at the house, they were more than shocked to not only find the bodies of the Lexer family, but 30 other shallow graves. As it so turned out, the mass murder of his own family wasn’t the only murders he had committed. Over a number of years, Jeremiah had been killing unsuspecting citizens and burying them around his house. Unsurprisingly, after this discovery, the plantation sat untouched. Nobody wanted to live in a house that was marred with such tragedy. It was finally purchased in 2009, and turned into a haunted house.
