Maybe you will find something new as part of your self-guided paranormal expedition!
About the Tour
Your supernatural tour of Savannah begins right next to the historic Reynolds Square. You’ll find your first stop across the street: the Olde Pink House, where mysterious orbs are frequently spotted. After that, you’ll head to the site of the Pulaski Hotel, still home to a 19th-century child who never left.
Next up is the former City Hotel, which is so haunted it drew the attention of TV crews not too long ago! Then you’ll reach the gorgeous riverfront, packed with bars, shops, restaurants, and more than a few ghostly sightings!
Then there’s the Shrimp Factory, where employees have reported hearing mysterious sounds when no one else is in the building. After that, you’ll arrive at the Hampton-Lillibridge House, a beautiful home with a dark history of mysterious accidents. Beyond that is the Marshall House, where human remains dating back to the Civil War were discovered during renovations in the 1990s.
Continuing, you’ll come to Wright Square, the site of tragic executions during the 18th century and supposedly also the site of a lingering presence from the victims. Then you’ll arrive at the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts and a woman with a fascinating history.
After that, you’ll arrive at Colonial Park Cemetery, the final resting place for almost ten thousand bodies in unmarked graves. As you might imagine, some of them are pretty restless.
The next house on your Savannah Ghost Tour is the Mercer-Williams House, the site of a murder that became infamous in the novel-turned-movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Then there’s Battlefield Park, where British and American forces clashed during the Revolutionary War. Many men never left this hallowed ground.
Finally, you’ll reach the Roundhouse Railroad Museum, at which visitors have seen shadowy figures moving about after dark and heard unexplainable noises from the tracks. Your tour concludes here.
