Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Savannah with Elaine Calloway

Paranormal Road Trip: Washington D.C. with R.S. Belcher

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, Georgia and our special guide is Elaine Calloway author of the Elemental Clans series, the Southern Ghosts series, and NO GRITS NO GLORY.

Savannah's Top 5 Spooky Places

Many people know Savannah, Georgia, as the locale for the famous book and movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. However, what you may not know is that haunted tales are threaded through this port city, enough to make a supernatural tapestry with all its haunts! Savannah without ghosts is like a sandwich with no insides!

So many places abound in the city of lush squares and haunts, but here are my favorite top five Savannah Haunts...

The Pirate’s House

The building was erected around 1753 and is home to the famous Shanghai stories in Savannah. Seamen and crews came into the port, thirsty for their favorite drink. And when they imbibed too much, they’d wake up the next morning to find themselves trapped on a pirate ship setting sail to new lands.

The Pirate’s House is now a restaurant that serves local seafood, but visitors can still take a peek at the Shanghai tunnel entrances that transported goods and supplies. When dining there, people have reported seeing ghosts of sailors who were shanghaied floating from table to table. Some hear moans and voices from the tunnels. Others see the ghost of Captain Flint, who died there many years ago.

The place offers a ghostly tour of the building, complete with someone dressed as a pirate who tells visitors about the haunted history.

The Marshall House

Located in the downtown shopping district, the Marshall House (built in 1851) is now a bed-and-breakfast inn with an eerie history. At the beginning of the Civil War, the building was a hotel but was taken over by Union General William Sherman’s men in 1864 and became a hospital for Union troops.
In the winter of 1864, the ground was frozen and the physicians were forced to bury amputated body parts under the floorboards. In the twentieth century during a remodel, owners found the remains and were forced to close down, thinking it was a crime scene.

Eventually the place reopened and is now a wonderful place to stay, just a few blocks from the excitement of River Street. Guests report hearing and seeing apparitions of soldiers roaming the hallways at night.

The Kehoe House

Built in 1892, The Kehoe House was a funeral home until the early 1990s. Now a luxurious bed-and-breakfast inn Victorian building, the place sits proud on Columbia Square in the historic district of Savannah.

Apparitions of the former owners, William and Annie Kehoe, along with their three sons, have been seen and heard—particularly on the second and third floor rooms of the house. Visitors have reported hearing groups of children laughing and playing. Some have seen ghosts of small children inviting them to play.
Others have seen Annie Kehoe’s ghost sitting at a desk in Room 203. One of the hotel rooms now used was once the place where bodies were embalmed. If you want a haunted (not to mention luxurious) stay in Savannah, the Kehoe House is a great choice.

The Olde Pink House

The Olde Pink House, which sits on Reynolds Square, was built to be a private residence for James Habersham but is now one of the best places for fine dining in Savannah. The food is exquisitely delicious, but this place also has a haunted history. Women visitors have seen ghostly apparitions flash across the mirror in the women’s restrooms. Others have reported lamp fringes moving suddenly, when there was no wind or gust of air to create the motion.

Some say the ghost of James Habersham still haunts the place, that he loves having lit candles on the tables. Everyone on the staff has come in contact with his ghost, including a surprised waiter who’d blown out all the candles. When he turned back around to grab something, every candle was lit once more.

Be sure to check out the downstairs piano bar and enjoy the haunts in the Olde Pink House.

The Moon River Brewing Company

The brewery was originally built in 1821 as a hotel for high society folks, but when General Sherman captured the city in 1864, the place became a hospital just like the Marshall House did. Hundreds of people were stricken with yellow fever and died in the rooms of the building. Today, poltergeists roam the place dressed in period attire.

The Moon River Brewing Company is known as one of Savannah’s most haunted locations and has been visited by Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures television shows.
