Folklore, Monsters, Myths, Ghosts, Legends and Scary Stories in Georgia
The spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; 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 headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; the pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; the revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; the Natchez princess Nacoochee, who killed herself for love and who is said to be interred with her paramour in the eponymous Nacoochee Mound; and 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, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
A stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; 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 velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; 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; and the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
