31 Days of Halloween with The Kelly Society - Day 11 Haunted Savannah
31 Days of Halloween with
The Kelly Society
Welcome, you all! This is John, the one who runs all that paranormal equipment when The Kelly Society embarks on their supernatural investigations.
Years ago, I met up with a friend in Savannah, Georgia during October. We took a couple haunted tours, ate delicious Southern food, and drank sweet wine. Martin and I had such a spooky, fun time, I had to share a few haunted hot spots on this blog.
According to VisitSavannah.com, here are some of the scariest locales in the city:
The Hamilton-Turner Inn
The Inn was made famous by Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Paranormal activities inside the inn include the sounds of children laughing, billiard balls rolling around on the upper floors and sightings of a strange, cigar-smoking man sitting on the roof.
The Marshall House
USA Today named the Marshall House one of the best haunted hotels in the U.S. Since 1851, this hotel has been used as a hospital three times – once for Union soldiers and twice for 19th century Yellow Fever epidemics. Guests have reported their fair share of paranormal experiences such as seeing ghosts in the hallways, hearing nonexistent children running down the halls and faucets turning on by themselves.
The Pirates' House
Once a saloon and rest stop for seafarers from abroad, The Pirates’ House still stands today as one of Savannah’s most well-known restaurants. However, The Pirates’ House can’t escape its dark past. Many were brutishly shanghaied down in the boarding house basement and forced to serve on the sea. There are many secrets to be discovered at this world famous site – some you’re sure to learn about over dinner.
Take my word for it. If you ever find yourself in Georgia during October, or any time of year, you'll want to sip a Mint Julep and tour the classic haunts of Savannah.
Happy Halloween to you'all Southern Style!
