The Most Haunted Places in Savannah
Haunted Houses of Savannah
Whether you're talking about large-scale mansions, or tiny Cape Cod style cottages, Savannah's Historic District is brimming with haunted houses on every street and on very square. While many of these properties are privately owned still, a few operate as museums . . . Meaning that you will have the chance to enter. At your own risk, of course.
From dark tales of murder and acts of jealousy, to the tragic deaths of loved ones, these are Savannah's most haunted residential places--could you brave the ghosts of these homes?
Haunted Savannah Squares
Savannah's Historic District is home to 24 squares. Some were laid out during the city's founding years when General Oglethorpe settled the area, while others are more recent additions from a century or so ago. But all have a story to tell--beneath the grass, the benches, the picturesque landscape, some were old burial grounds or execution places.
While you might pause to snap a photo of a beautiful oak tree or monument, be aware that you might not be alone. For as old and pretty as these squares might be, more than a few are known to be haunted by the ghosts of days long ago . . .

Haunted Savannah Restaurants and Bars
Looking for a place to eat or drink with a ghostly legend or two? It's no secret that Savannah's reputation of being the most haunted city in Savannah precedes itself, but it's safe to say that this "reputation" is backed up by hard paranormal evidence.
The ghosts of these locations have known to play pranks on patrons, but they are just as well known to act violently toward the living. Which type of ghost you come across depends on the haunted location . . . It's our hope that you meet the ghostly pranksters, but if you meet a darker entity please remember that we warned you.
Colonial Park Cemetery
Considered by many to be one of the most haunted, if not the most haunted location in all of Savannah, Colonial Park Cemetery is a must see for any paranormal enthusiast while visiting Savannah Georgia.
The stories that involve Colonial Park are well known to most locals. What else is well known to locals is that most of the ghost stories about how haunted Colonial Park Cemetery is…are complete garbage.
River Street has always been a source of weird energy and ghostly tales, dating all the way back to the early days of Savannah’s history. The buildings which line River Street, most of them old warehouses, all seem to have a ghost or haunting inside. The buildings on River Street are a paranormal investigator’s playground to say the least.
Factor’s Walk is certainly one of the most passed over areas in the historic district of Savannah. It is an area rich in history, intrigue…and ghosts. Sandwiched in between River Street and Bay Street, Factor’s Walk has seen more than its share of tragedy. Our tour groups often report ghostly activity in the cobblestone lined Factor’s Walk alley.

One of the more unique locations in all of Savannah, Bradley's Lock and Key has long been rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of Savannah's past. Today, everyone who passes by this building in Haunted Savannah has to stop and look in the windows at all of the objects, some of them possibly haunted.
