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