Overview

Tuscaloosa was first inhabited by ancient native tribes tied to the land by centuries-old traditions. Pioneering settlers later moved in, establishing a town and a university that would prove vital to the state. Some say these early inhabitants never truly left. Voices from the Civil War to the civil rights movement still echo in Tuscaloosa, where the past refuses to lie dormant. Now, take a terrifying trek through Tuscaloosa with authors David Higdon and Brett Talley as they delve into the city’s shadowy history with tales of the jettisoned insane asylum, lingering antebellum mansions housing the ghosts of the original dwellers and haunted cemeteries where the specters of Confederate soldiers still march. From ghostly hot spots on campus to the shady outskirts of town, this is Haunted Tuscaloosa.
