Sorrel-Weed House - Savannah, GA - Scores 6/6



You know I'll have to do the most haunted cities when I'm done with my research and Savannah will be one of the toppers.

Conditions at the Sorrel-Weed House are ideal for a haunting. It was built in the late 1830s and saw host to many get togethers with famous politicians and military leaders. There was even a suicide in the house. Those who love "Ghost Hunters" might vaguely remember the 2005 Halloween special (can't find that on DVD--darnit!) They captured a woman screaming and pleading for help, believed to be the ghost of a slave woman.

Here's how it breaks down:

1. Land is sandstone/limestone/sediment.
2. Block construction.
3. Death.
4. Older than 50 years.
5. Near train tracks.
6. Near river.

I can't wait to add up the hard evidence for haunting compared to its score, but I suspect it's probably going to hold strong.

  3. I have been to Savannah many times and have actually done a tour of the Sorrel Weed House. It is a beautiful old home and has a lot of history behind it. For the meager amount it costs to do the tour it is worth it if you are a history buff at the very least.
    After doing the tour I also saw the Halloween special episode of the Ghost Hunters tour and heard the EVP of the slave woman's violent death. That was really creepy!!
