|St. Simons Island Lighthouse|
Home to a Restless Ghost?
Whether you believe in such tales or not, they were commonly told by our ancestors. Newspapers of the 19th century, in fact, often reported ghost and "wild man" (Bigfoot) sightings along with the other important news of the day.
Georgia is home to dozens of historically documented ghost and monster stories and I thought you might enjoy checking out a few of them this Halloween!
Bigfoot Attack in the Okefenokee
Ghost of Allatoona Pass
Ghosts of Jekyll Island
Ghosts of Midway Cemetery
Ghosts of the Old Georgia Medical College
Ghost of St. Simons Lighthouse
Ghost of Springer Opera House
Ghost of Tallulah Gorge
Ghost of the Headless Horse in Albany
Murderer's Ghost in Macon
A number of these stores are well over 100 years old. Some are quite a bit "wilder" than others, but I find all of them interesting and love the fact that they were known to our ancestors long before any of us were born.
