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

The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Travel safely and happily.
