Savannah

The city of Savannah has long been considered one of our most haunted cities.

The crisp fall air sends a shiver down your spine as we encounter some of Savannah’s residents.

The Kehoe House once was home to an unfortunate pair of twins. Their voices can be heard and on occassion, if you’re lucky, a door may open by itself.

A stately southern city, ornate and fancifully dressed, is home to legends and heroes.

Pirates once called this place home. Legend says that the inspiration¬† for R.L. Stevenson’s Treasure Island came form here. Some say the demented Captain Flint died screaming for more rum.

Another city exists just outside city limits. One surrounded by majestic oaks draped in spanish moss.

The Garden of Good and Evil is a place where living and dead commune.

The residents of Bonventure Cemetaryinclude founding fathers, patriots and even composer Johnny Mercer.

Once the site of a grand southern plantation, during a racous dinner party the house caught fire. As any good host would do, the partiers grabbed their plates and silverware and moved outdoors, as the house burned down to the ground the party continued on. Listen closely and you may hear the sounds of revellers smashing their wine glasses against the trees.

Some believe they are still very much living around us.

Lives cut short, can leave the soul wanting to hang around. Some say that the life sized statue weeps.

Don’t be surprised if you feel as if you are being watched.

Haunts of Charleston

The streets of America’s ancient cities are populated with the living and the dead. Such is the case of Charleston, South Carolina

City streets are prowled by the living during the day, and by the dead at night

A city full of secret gardens

and theatrical nightmares

deserted alleyways are home to re-enactments of death

Churches provide solace and haven

Cities of the dead exist side by side

Waiting for the undead to visit
