Overview

Savannah is teeming with tales of the supernatural. The occurrences in private homes, inns, and other historic buildings are so frequent and ongoing, it is difficult to narrow them down in one sitting. What makes the old port city so haunted? Why are spirits constantly showing their wits in both good and evil ways here?

By a long-time believer in the paranormal, Haunted Savannah brings together twenty-two tales of ghosts, hauntings, and other paranormal happenings in one of America's most haunted cities. Be chilled as you read these and other stories:

No Rest for Sarah: Visitors from across the world travel to visit the stately mansion that was the childhood home of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. Hers is one of the city's most prominent houses-and one of the most haunted.

Miss Jane's Revenge: A beautiful home was the perfect place for two professional brothers to take up residence. Little did they know that they would soon find themselves talking to the dead and defending the former resident while a deceitful husband got away with murder.

The Woman in the Square: When the sun sets on otherwise color ful Wright Square, a woman's cries echo throughout the dimly lit place where the guilty and the innocent were hanged as hundreds watched in horror.
