western Pickens County that at one time some 50-60 years ago used to be wooden,

killing them both. The bridge now is paved and well supported. You can drive
onto the bridge anytime at night and shut the car off and all artificial
light(flashlights, headlights, cell-phone background lights, pager blinking red
lights, etc.)must be shut off and wait patiently in the car and this black
figure of an average size man will walk from the end of the bridge and to your
car and look into the windows. If a woman is in your car it will most likely go
to her first and will continue to examine your car. If you crank your car,
without turning on your lights, and begin to drive off, the man will chase you
until you are off the bridge. Then the ghost will disappear into the night. The
ghost is there to try to scare people off the bridge so that they won't face
the same fate that the couple did. BEWARE: The ghost doesn't always walk right
to your car. Sometimes it just appears at your window and can scare you plum

plenty of "natural" light to see the ghost with.

Rome - Berry College – The Road between the new & old campus - On the road
between the main campus of Berry College and the new mountain campus, the
2-mile road is bordered by woods on both sides. In the days before there was a
mountain campus, students from Berry would go up into the woods to fool around.
One such couple who attended Berry in the '40's is the subject of a tragic
accident that occurred at Berry. After making love, the young man and young
woman got into an argument, and the boy left his girlfriend in the woods to
walk home alone while he drove. After driving a little while, he felt sorry and
turned around to pick her up. On the way back, he wasn't paying attention to
the road and he hit something. Assuming it was a deer, he got out to look--and
it was his lover! She was dead. To this day, students at Berry say that if you

cries from the women workers who were sexually assaulted and killed by

disappears. If you throw a rock in the direction of the cemetery you will hear
the rock hit the ground once, then a second or two later, you will hear it hit
again. The man was a farmer, however is quite malevolent. He slams doors,
knocks on the walls of the cabins, and walks around outside the cabins late at
night. if you leave the window shutters open he will scratch on the window
screen and the temperature will drop about ten degrees. He only bothers small
groups of isolated people. These occurrences only happen at Camp Rutledge
within Hard Labor Creek State Park, and only at the two cabin clusters closest
to the graveyard. Other occurrences on the campsite are: There is a small
graveyard located on the site, after 12:00AM a figure has been spotted moving

activity that goes on there. Loca ls say to park your car on the side of the
road near the cemetery and look at the small prayer chapel that is located in
the middle of the cemetery, while being quiet, you can hear moans and high
pitch noises coming from the chapel and at times there seems to be a low
glooming light that emerges from the foundation of the chapel, locals say that
upon approaching the cemetery at night there seems to be an unexplainable chill
that goes down your spine every time you try to pass through the arch at the
entrance of the cemetery. (Be careful when visiting, because the authorities
have been known to patrol the dirt road frequently.) - It would be a good idea
to let the proper authorities know what you are doing and ALWAYS get

Savannah - 1790 Inn and Tavern - This Inn was built in 1790 and is haunted by a
girl named Anna She was a seventeen year old girl who was shunned after getting
pregnant by a sailor. The sailor was said to have jumped out of the third story
window and died. He haunts the same room the window was located. Guests claim
to lose things such as wallets, ID's, and underclothes. They will later be
found in planters or behind bookshelves. People have also reported hearing Anna
in the room moving things around. - December 2003 Update/ Correction: The story
is that she was in love with a sailor, but HE did NOT jump from the window...
SHE DID. (He had gone to sea and was not there to throw himself out of a
window) She was deeply depressed because he was going to sea and leaving her,
most likely never to return. It is said that she could see the sails of his
boat as it went down river and out to sea. She threw herself from a 3rd floor
window. There is also said to be a woman who haunts the kitchen in the inn who
used to practice voodoo, and a spirit haunts the bar/restaurant area. The
submitter claims to have taken photos throughout the inn, but have not caught
any anomalies on film. However, when they tried taking pictures in the bar
area, their camera suddenly failed to work. Once they left the area, the camera
functioned with no problem. They also had to buy new batteries twice in one
weekend, as if something had drained them. On the second floor a linen closet,
they felt a foreboding presence. Later, when talking to a housekeeper at the
inn, they were told she had had a dream once of a man clad in 1700's clothing
coming out of that same closet. She had no idea that they had a really creepy
feeling each time they walked by it. The second time they stayed at the 1790's
they remarked to the clerk as they checked in, that at least they weren’t going
to have to sleep in "Anna's room". The clerk told them that the
window she threw herself from was not actually her bedroom at the time... her
bedroom was room 101... wh ich is the room they was staying in! When they
reached the room and preceded to unlock the door, it wouldn't open. Both she
and her husband tried, the bottom lock was unlocked, but the deadbolt wasn't.
They had knocked on the door, jokingly saying, "Anna... come on, open
up." They returned to the innkeeper and she went up with us to check out
the problem. She informed them that the deadbolts could only be locked from the
inside and the innkeeper has a master key for those. She pushed down on the
door handle and the door opened with no problem! It was if the deadbolt had
never been locked, yet they BOTH knew that it had been. The 1790's Inn (is
actually spelled out as Seventeen Hundred Ninety’s Inn, in case you want to
search the net for it) is most definitely filled with an atmosphere of spirits
from the past, you can feel it all around you if you are sensitive to that kind
of thing. They heard noises in the room at night, and guests have been known to
leave in the middle of the night after seeing apparitions and hearing strange

Tifton - Hickory Springs - Information not known on incident happening in the
late 1900's. The story says that if you are to walk behind the church there is
a trail behind it leading into the woods. You may hear things running through
the woods to meet you at the end of the trail. The objects will make odd noises
like a panther. It’s a really high-pitched scream that will send chills up your
spine. Residents from miles away can hear the screams from all around the
church. - December 2003 update; you can't go to Hickory Springs at night,
because there is a no trespassing sign and cameras everywhere. If you trespass,
you will be arrested. You can go there during the day though the groundskeeper
will shoot Trespassers.

late at night. When the hotel was undergoing restoration, it was said that
things would be moved around or just... disappeared.
Tybee Island - The Light House - Every full moon by the old fort you can hear
the sounds of fighting and cries of death as the ocean waters turn the color of
blood red. The fort is across the road from the lighthouse, which is said to be
haunted by a former keeper.
Unidilla - Old Unidilla Baptist Church - A ghost haunts this site. 1994 or 1995
four teenagers went out there to see if they could see the ghost and one of the
graves had been dug up and a skull was sitting on top of a head stone. You will
get in trouble if caught there now. - December 2003 Update: The church is no
longer standing, it was torn down years ago. The old cemetery is still there,
and it is still active. The church was located in the middle of nowhere. When
you approached it, it seemed to glow.
Valdosta - Spook Bridge - Right near the Quitman line, take hwy 84 W,turn left
at the caution light right before you get to Quitman, and go down to the first
dirt road to the left. A dead end... This is an old bridge crossing water that
is no longer in use. Said to be used in Satanic rituals many years ago. You
park at the dead end and walk the path to the bridge. The minute you cross the
dirt path onto the old c oncrete bridge, you feel the fear and cold. You see
images of people walking toward you and can feel them touching you. There is
said to be a "line of light" that few can cross. You hear screams and
voices and feel a great deal of fear. Very Scary!!
Valdosta - Warrens Blue Bayou - It was said that when this bar use to be a
house, the former owner hung himself in his office locking the door behind him.
Now during the night chairs end up on the floor after being put up the night
before. The recent owner apparently was locked out of the office room after she
went to use the bathroom. On another occasion, patrons starting screaming
vulgar words towards the ghost, when as soon as they where done the lights and
sound just cut off for a minute and a cold chill ran through the
room. - May 2004 update. An investigator reports they went with two other
members of their team and the (then) owner to the building that was known as
Warren's Blue Bayou, formerly the Bell House (named after James Bell, who built
it around the turn of the century) and currently known as Vito's Restaurant.
Although they did not get any emf readings, temperature drops, or evp's, they
did manage to get an orb photo. The images are very clear and bright. They had
it analyzed by professional developers who could not explain it as a developing
error or any kind of reflection. They are attempting to get the current owner's
permission to investigate further. One orb photo may not seem like=2 0much, but
Mr. Warren related stories about his employees stacking chairs on the table so
they could mop, only to turn around and have them back on the floor again.
Also, he alleges that as he sat in his office doing paperwork, he felt a
forceful thump on his chest. When he looked down, there was a wet spot
approximately the size of a man's fist on his chest.
Van Wert - Old Van Wert church and graveyard - Very old church and graveyard.

off his head! He walks the tracks at night, usually at midnight, caring a

Young Harris - Young Harris College - Clegg Fine Arts Building – Clegg
Auditorium - It is common knowledge over the campus that Charlie Clegg, the
president of the college in the 1960's, haunts the entire fine arts building.
Even the professors acknowledge his presence by saying, "Goodnight,
Charlie," when exiting the building for the night. Charlie has been known
to play the organ downstairs at night, appear on stage, find lost props minutes
before the actor has to appear on stage, whisper lines to actors who draw a
blank, and even touch a few people from time to time. Although benevolent and
helpful, he often frightens people to the point that they will not enter the
Young Harris - Young Harris College - Dobbs Theatre - the early 1990's there
was a janitor named Jesse who loved the theatre and would participate when a
particular role called for someone who had visible age. He one day was driving
home and wrapped his car around a tree; his ghost has haunted the Blackbox ever
since. In the storage room, the noise of moving chairs and other items can
often be heard. In the classroom, the motion sensor light turns on when the
door is locked and nobody is in there. Footsteps up the steps and around the
building are common. Movement upstairs and in the catwalks is also very common.
While Charlie in the Clegg building usually causes commotion at night, Jesse
seems to be around 24 hours a day- even while there are large groups and
classes in the theatre.
