Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Davenport House

A boarding house with a gruesome past filled with disease and death. The Davenport House has seen many souls come and go, but many were forced to stay permanently. The historic building is famous for a ghost cat and the restless spirit of a little girl.

17Hundred90 Inn

Three separate buildings full of haunted history make up this extremely active inn. Room 204 is haunted by the spirit of a young woman who took her own life after being jilted by a reckless sailor. She is often seen at the bedside, hanging in mid-air.

Kehoe House

Terrifying unexplained occurrences, such as the lights going out at midnight and doorbells ringing incessantly, have plagued this 1892 building since it opened as a bed and breakfast.

The Hauntings of Savannah

The many squares of old Savannah are littered with the remnants of a horrific past that has made The Hostess City of the South one of the most haunted cities in the United States. Since its foundation in 1733, it has become entrenched in Georgia’s history as a city known for its hefty relationship with tragedy and terror.

 

During the Revolutionary War, Savannah was occupied by British forces from 1778 to 1782. The streets filled with the blood of colonial patriots during these oppressive years. Something the spirits of Savannah have not forgotten. The Civil War reared its ugly head, and Savannah again became a target for mass destruction. General Sherman’s infamous march to the sea left little more than ashes behind and a ghostly population waiting for revenge.

 

The iconic port city dealt with outbreaks of Yellow Fever and other ravenous diseases throughout these terrible years. Between 1820 and 1878, the city’s population was decimated by the horrors of pestilence. The worst wave of illness took over 700 lives. Is it any wonder Savannah has a reputation for macabre and misery?

 

The Most Haunted Places in Savannah, GA

 

The Mercer Williams House was the site of raucous parties and many peculiar deaths. Now, the parties and the unlucky souls of the dead continue to inhabit this museum. The Andrew Low House is one of the many beautiful southern mansions bordering the city’s many squares. But the inside of the house is anything but ordinary. The ghost of Robert E. Lee is said to hang out with the building’s former owner in the eternal world of the ever after.

 

Serving as a hospital during the Civil War and the yellow fever epidemics, the Marshall House Hotel is easily one of the most haunted hotels in Savannah. Savannah’s most haunted cemetery, the Laurel Grove Cemetery, is the home of many haunted encounters and Voodoo rituals. Savannah Ghosts invites you to meet all the spirits of Savannah on our nightly walking ghost tour.
