Savannah’s Spookiest Sights

We’ve all heard it before: “Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in America.”

This is one of the things that makes Savannah, and especially the downtown area of Savannah, a major tourist attraction.

The Marshall House, located on E Broughton Street, is one of the most haunted locations in Savannah. Multiple ghost tours stop by this hotel for its spooky encounters like ghosts in the hallway or hearing children laughing when there aren’t any around.

17 Hundred 90 Inn and Restaurant, located on E President Street, is also a location that’s thrown around a lot for being haunted. According to Old Savannah Tours, the story with this location is that a woman jumped from her window to the ground level after suffering from a broken heart. Patrons now report feeling a presence over them while they sleep as well as seeing a little boy in the kitchen.

Moon River Brewing Company, on W Bay Street, is famous for its variation of craft beers as well as its appearance on the YouTube series, Buzzfeed Unsolved. This location is best known for its unfriendly ghosts that have been reported to scare the staff by throwing bottles in their direction at random times during the hours of the restaurant.

The Pirate’s House, on E Broad Street, used to be home to sailors as they would pass through Savannah. The basement of The Pirate’s House has a dark history of its own and current visitors that frequent this location to eat or go ghost hunting have noted seeing a seaman staring at them as they are in the building.

This is just a short list of some of the most haunted locations in the city. Taking a trip downtown at night is fun, but you might have to keep your eyes open for a ghost sighting of your own.
