The Unusual Death of Notorious Bartender Ike Johnson
46:15At the turn of the 19th century, bootlegger and gambler Ike Johnson established the Southern Turf in Nashville “Men’s Quarter. The Turf was a saloon, brothel, and gambling hall that became the most popular establishment in Nashville. He was well-liked by many, including famous distillers Jack Daniels and George Dickel. Despite his popularity, Ike ended his life with a self-inflicted gunshot on the second floor of his beloved Southern Turf. His death was unusual given that he had lived at the Southern Turf for 20 years, and the building had been praised for its lavish decorations, fixtures, and sanitation. However, after 20 years and a new law prohibiting alcohol, gambling, and extracurricular activities, the Southern Turf fell into disrepair and was eventually sold by the city to the Tennessean as a printing facility. Despite prohibition preventing Johnson from selling alcohol, he still planned to open a new bar along Bootleggers Row, two blocks north of the Southern Turf. On the day of his eviction, the police came to remove him from the premises, but it is unclear whether he committed suicide in front of them or was murdered. Some say that Ike still haunts the Southern Turf building to this day, with reports of sightings and even a tourist's photograph allegedly capturing him looking out of his apartment window.
The Life and Death of Nashville's Most Notorious Lady of the Night
1:03:43Dalen and Mark introduce you to Why They Haunt, and the first story is W-I-L-D WILD! They take you back to the 1880s and introduce you to a wayward lady by the name of Birdie Patterson who is said to be haunting the St Cloud Corner in Downtown Nashville, TN.“Birdie” Patterson was a well-known figure in Nashville during the late 1800s despite only living there for 3 years. She was a prostitute and madam who ran several brothels in the city, and she was known for her flamboyant, colorful personality, and extravagant lifestyle. But on a steamy hot summer night a bullet to the chest would end her life. The circumstances around her death are a mystery today. Now Birdie roams the streets of Nashville, terrorizing mostly men and the very same same buildings she once worked in. A number of men enjoying today’s raucous Nashville lifestyle, the same way that they might have in Birdie’s time, claim to see a ghostly woman figure and hear disembodied voices saying what appears to be the word Murder, or Misery. Some have even gone as far to suggest the feeling of heavy hair and cold parts in the city where they are touched and even pushed by an invisible force.
