The vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; 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 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 velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; 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; and the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
