Halloween is right around the corner which means it’s time to plan out your adventures to revel in this spooky time of year. Visiting a haunted house is one thing, but taking a trip to an actual haunted place is another. As it turns out, Savannah, Georgia is home to a ton of areas many claim are haunted. Here are several spooky haunted places in Savannah, Georgia.
- 432 Abercorn Street – The house located at 432 Abercorn Street is a popular place to haunt, it seems. In the late 1800s, General Wilson punished his daughter by forcing her to face the window for days on end. She eventually died of dehydration and supposedly haunts the house. In 1959, three sisters were murdered in the house while visiting families and haunt the home as well.
- Bonaventure Cemetery– There’s nothing as haunted as a cemetery and Bonaventure Cemetery is the subject of a famous ghost. Little Gracie was a six-year-old girl who now inhabits her statue in the cemetery where visitors leave gifts. The legend goes that bloody tears fall from the statue if a toy is removed.
- Olde Candler Hospital Morgue Tunnel – As if the name doesn’t say it all, this hospital was the first in Georgia and was built in 1804. A massive Candler Oak tree sits on the property and has been deemed “The Hanging Tree.” Apparitions can be seen hanging from the branches from time to time. The morgue tunnel was used to transport and dispose of yellow fever victims and remains haunted to this day.
