Myths, Ghosts, Monsters, Folklore, Legends and Scary Stories in Georgia
The revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; the strange phenomena in John W Woolfolk House (Colonial Apartments), sometimes called The House of a Thousand Cadavers, in Columbus (the house contains private dwellings so do not be a nuisance); the statue of little Gracie Watson in Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, which is said to weep blood if anyone steals the presents which are sometimes left on her grave; the Natchez princess Nacoochee, who killed herself for love and who is said to be interred with her paramour in the eponymous Nacoochee Mound; the female spectre of the town square, Savannah, who sometimes follows people around (she is seeking her baby who was born just before the woman was hanged for murder); the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; and the pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; a cave, near the source of the Hiwassee River, containing many human skulls whose former owners haunted a farmer, who had foolishly removed them, until he wisely put them back; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; and a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Honolulu, Corpus Christi, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Sitka, Atlanta, Anchorage, St Louis, New York, New Orleans, Atlantic City, Dallas, Philadelphia, Savannah, Boston, Miami, Indianapolis, Lake Tahoe, Detroit, Fairbanks, Albuquerque, Houston, Minneapolis, San Diego, Sacramento, Washington DC, Seattle, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Juneau, Skagway, Los Angeles, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix and Santa Fe. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Grand Canyon, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon, the Florida Keys, the Appalachians, the California coastline, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, Yosemite National Park, the Everglades, Route 66, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Disney resorts, the Ozarks, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the wild west town of Tombstone, Niagara Falls, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rushmore, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park and the Okefenokee Swamp are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America. Good luck on your travels.
