Newport Memorial Building

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Newport Memorial Building

In 1971 there was a plane crash on a mountain in Parotsville Tennessee. Limbs were scattered everywhere and no survivors were ever found. While waiting for the bodies to be identified they were housed in the Cocke County Memorial Building. Among the bodies were many small children. Many people have a feeling of being watched,they hear a woman screaming,and they can see a small boy with black bowl haircut sitting with his legs crossed. Many people have forgotten this tragic event but one visit to the Memorial Building and you will instantly remember.

  1. I have never been able to tell my experience from that day but I will never forget it. I was in a car with some of my brothers going toward my Grandmother’s house on Salem road. My brother that was driving said look how low that plane is. I looked up and just as I did it blew up and something feel out of the plane. I found out later that a man was found near a farm in that area. You never get that image out of your mind.May they rest in peace.July 9,1964 crash of flight 823.
