Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Savannah with Emily Cyr

Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Savannah with Emily Cyr author of The Lightning Prophecy

Come on boys and ghouls!  It's time to hop on Route 666 for a spooktacular Paranormal Road Trip.

This week's stop is Savannah, GA and our special guide is Emily Cyr, author of THE LIGHTNING PROPHECY.

Emily's Top 5 Spooky Places in Savannah

My book, The Lightning Prophecy, takes place in Savannah GA. Savannah is known for being one of the most haunted places in the states! I picked Savannah to be the setting of this trilogy after having lived there for nearly 8 years. For anyone who has lived/been there you will understand the place is honestly full of magic!

The first place that is a must stop is Colonial Park Cemetery.

Colonial Park Cemetery - is located in the middle of downtown Savannah. There are over 9,000 graves in the small cemetery established in the late 1700's. I have been there a number of times and have heard that people see a couple holding hands floating over the graves. SPOOKY!

Stop two has got to be the Marshall house!

The Marshall House - located on Broughton st in downtown Savannah. It is now a hotel but it didn't start out that way. It used to be a Civil war hospital. The hospital saw more than its fair share of death as there was a major outbreak of yellow fever. It's said that the now huge hotel was built on the graves of the people who died in the hospital! I have been there a number of time and eaten dinner there. Can you say scary?

Stop three has to be the Foley House Inn.

Foley House Inn - Okay so this one is definitely a scary story! The Inn was built in 1896 by Honoria Foley. A near century later renovations were done and what do you think they found tucked away in the wall? Oh, just a skeleton! What the what?

Stop four has got to be Wright Square.

Wright Square - This was the location of a pretty famous hanging. Alice Riley was said to be the first woman to be executed in the state of Georgia and it was done right smack in the middle of Wright square.

The last stop is Bonaventure Cemetery.

Bonaventure Cemetery - Bonaventure's location isn't the only thing that is special about this last spot. This cemetery is home to thousands of graves but there is one of a little girl named Gracie who is seen roaming the rows of graves as well as the city itself.

Thank you Emily for giving us such a haunting tour of Savannah!
