I don’t know about you, but the fall brings out the ghost-seeker in me. It seems to be the perfect time of the year to listen to ghost stories, wander through haunted houses, and even attempt to scare up a ghost or two! If this sounds like something you are interested in doing, you must check out these Savannah GA haunted attractions.
The Mercer Williams House was featured in the very popular book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. If you haven’t taken the time to read it, you really must check it out! This is one of the most stopped by haunted attractions in Savannah and you will find it on Monterey Square. There have been three deaths in this home, including one of an eleven-year-old boy.
The Davenport House is in Columbia Square and it is filled with many ghosts. In addition to the human ghosts, there is a cat ghost at this home as well. Sometimes this cat can be seen racing from one room to another. Other times it is sitting on the windowsill. This home is currently a museum, so you can go in and explore when it is open.
Craft beers are present at the Moon River Brewing Company. Ghosts are also present in this building. A visit to this brewing company may have you spotting the infamous lady wearing white at the top of the stairs. She is one of the ghosts that will occasionally throw bottles when you least expect it. The upstairs and the basement are the two spots where the ghosts hang out the most. Therefore, if you stay away from those areas, you won’t have too many encounters.
You can actually dine with the ghosts at the Olde Pink House in Savannah. This is considered one of the most haunted buildings in Savannah. One of the old owners of this home killed himself there and it is stated that his ghost continues to roam the house. He is only one of the ghosts in this home though, so be prepared to see or feel quite a few during your visit.
Lafayette Square is the most haunted square in Savannah. There are also numerous haunted houses and buildings around this square. It is said many of the ghosts congregate in the square.
The Marshall House Hotel was once a Civil War Hospital. It also served as a hospital during the yellow fever epidemics of the 19th century. You can now stay in this hotel and that means you will have ample opportunities to run into the ghosts that roam the hallways.
The Willink House is located at 426 East St. Julian Street. However, it was not always located there. Prior to being placed in this location, the home was on the corner of Perry and Price Streets. To this day, neighbors continue to hear the front door slamming shut. Things are also constantly being moved inside the house, but not by people. Henry F. Willink is one of those ghosts and many of the other are the school children that went to the school inside the home.
The Andrew Low House can be found at 329 Abercorn Street. This house is now a museum and the people in charge do not like to discuss the ghostly happenings inside. But you can still wander around and feel the history and spirits that are still alive.
The haunted attractions in Savannah are not without controversy. Many people have gone wild with the ghostly stories of 432 Abercorn Street. So much so that many of them are not true at all. The truth is that this home was constructed on top of a slave burial site. No one really knows who is roaming this building and no one ever will. This home is closed up tight and no one is allowed to go inside.
You can check out all these haunted attractions, plus many others during your family vacation in Savannah, GA. While you can visit them all on your own, I recommend taking one of the many ghost tours Savannah. There are different ghost tours Savannah offered every day.
