What is the most famous ghost story from Georgia?
Before you set out on visiting all the ghosts in Georgia on this road trip, first you should learn about the most famous ghosts in the state. Georgia ghost stories are in abundance, which make it difficult to pinpoint the most famous story of all. However, it’s only right that some of the real Georgia ghost stories come straight from Savannah. One of the most well-known ghost stories in Georgia is the story of Alice Riley. Alice Riley was the very first woman to be sentenced to death in Savannah and is believed to have been hanged in Wright Square. Have you seen her apparition late at night when the fog sets over the square?

While The Peach State is known for southern hospitality and charm, it also is known for being one of the most haunted spots in the country. There are tons of real haunted places Georgia, which is why we can have an epic haunted road trip. If you’re looking to find some real ghosts in Georgia then look no further than Savannah. As the first of Georgia’s cities, there is no debate that Savannah has some severe supernatural prowess. Visit Savannah during the autumn months and take any of the cemetery tours for a unique glimpse back in time on this historically haunted spot.

Nothing says creepy quite like an abandoned building. The good news for us is that there are plenty of abandoned places in Georgia to explore that will certainly bring the thrills and chills. While some of these spots you cannot actually explore, you can still walk the perimeter and see if you can feel any supernatural beings nearby. Perhaps the creepiest abandoned place in Georgia worth visiting is The New Manchester Manufacturing Company near Sweetwater Creek.
