In the quiet forests of northern Georgia sits Lake Blue Ridge. Lake Blue Ridge fans out into a series of spidery creeks and rivers, one of which extends southward until it makes a sharp turn to the west in an area known as Tilley Bend. Tilley Bend is the site of an old wooden church and graveyard where, allegedly, the body of The Blue Ridge Witch is buried. Come learn about the local legends and rumors that tell the tragic tale of two feuding families and a cursed homestead.
