Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tenn.

Captain Thomas G. Ryman, the original owner of the building, is said to still haunt his structure. Though the Ryman Auditorium was originally built as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in 1892, it soon shifted over to an entertainment venue after Ryman's death, and legend goes that if his spirit disapproved of any of the performances that were held there, he would make his disapproval known. Other ghosts have also been rumored to linger at the Ryman, including one known as the "Gray Man," and, more interestingly, the ghost of Hank Williams, Sr., who reportedly has been seen spending time backstage and even on the stage itself.
