"IT IS THE RIGHT OF EVERY PERSON ON EARTH TO KNOW THAT THERE IS PHYSICAL EVIDENCE THAT PROVES THAT THERE IS LIFE ELSEWHERE". - Nuclear physicist, Bob Lazar
UFO's by definition means unidentified flying objects. Even though documented accounts of UFO appearances have received a great deal of attention, mostly since World War II, the flying saucer phenomenon is not a new one. Records from biblical Israel, Egypt , ancient Rome and others make it clear that even our most remote ancestors were visited by unearthly happenings in the sky. Throughout the long history of UFO visitations, no matter what culture, certain similarities are very recurrent. They have been reported to fly far faster than any natural or man-made objects and can maneuver with such quickness and precision as to defy what we know about natural law of physics.
Biblical writers called them angels, while ancient pagans referred to them as gods. Psychologists think of them as mass hallucinations; many scientific and military authorities would have us believe UFOs are nothing more than swamp gas, ball lightning, or downright hoaxes. The theory that UFOs are extraterrestrial , however, has become more and more popular lately; even to the point that some high ranking military personnel have come forth to substantiate what they know - UFOs are real.
Abductions happen on a global scale with similar characteristics and typically the subjects of interest to these visitors have no prior knowledge of the details concerning other abductee's experiences. This is especially true of persons living in countries where television and radio are not widely available for the circulation of propaganda. Is there a government conspiracy to coverup the truth? Most field researchers agree... YES! There is a coverup! To what end? No one really knows.

Appalachian GhostWalks invites you, your family and friends, or tour group to come and explore the mysteries of our mountain heritage. In addition to our many historic and authentically haunted hotspots, a variety of paranormal experiences and encounters have been documented throughout the mountainous regions of Southern Appalachia since February 1994.
The follow-up research and documentation of these unexplained and often astounding experiences were originally presented within the pages of "The American UFO Journal", later to become "The Alternate Realities Chronicles", both of which were orginial transcript publications of UFO sightings and other worldly encounters as reported to the center by way of the "UFO Sightings and Information Hotline" and The ARC's "Extraordinary Experience Case Submission and Documentation Form". The most interesting and well documented cases of unexplained aerial phenomena have now been correlated to present a world's first - The Appalachian UFO Close Encounters Expedition"TM. Designed to thrill and amaze believers and skeptics alike, the research and investigation of the many strange encounters our guests hear
The ARC - Alternate Realities Center is a Christian based, not-for-profit organization founded in February of 1994 to study all manner of phenomena that are classified as "the fringe" by most branches of Science. Appalachian GhostWalks was created as a public awareness program of The ARC to reveal the wondrous and often haunting discoveries made at hundreds of Federal, State, and Local Historic Sites throughout our region. Thus, there is nothing false, fictitious, or made-up on any of our tours and vacations package productions - you'll always get REAL Tennessee and Virginia History and TRUE Smoky Mountain Ghost Stories! Through the indepth investigations (conducted before the first walk was ever presented at each location) and by way of the resulting tours which followed, the goal has always been to lend evidence in support of a belief to which so many of us cling. A faith suggestive that when our body stops working there is more which lies ahead for us all. We invite you to come and discover the amazing results of our investigations, in combination with the region's documented history - which actually verified our findings. Facts which will truly give you a spine-tingling feeling for who is haunting these locations and why they are here! Altogether, a positive reflection on the afterlife, appropriate for all ages, and proudly supporting Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
