Detailed Tour Itinerary
Tour Stop at Gribble House
As the scene of a triple murder in 1909, the Gribble House will be the first stop on this tour. Although the building has since been demolished, the spirits of the victims still occupy the property, now a 15,00 square foot warehouse. Here, you can learn the dreaded history and explore what remains of the property with true ghost-hunting techniques.
Tour Stop at Perkins & Sons Ship Chandlery
At the Perkins & Sons Ship Chandlery, you will enjoy a 20-minute performance with special effects about how the antiquated building gained its reputation. Located on River Street, this building will draw you in as you follow your guide inside what was once the bustling port business. A paranormal presence will bombard you upon entering, and dark tales will creep from the shadows on the walls as you learn of the family's sinister past.
Drive By Colonial Park Cemetery
Established in 1750, the Colonial Park Cemetery functions as an anchor location for Savannah's early haunted history, and it is also where the infamous Jesse Greathouse video was filmed in 2008, which has become one of the most compelling and controversial pieces of evidence for life after death currently available.
Drive By Mercer House
The Mercer House, now the Mercer-Williams House Museum, was the scene of the shooting death of Jim Williams' assistant, Danny Hansford, a story that is retorld in the 1994 John Berendt novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Before his death, the house had already been the scene of two deaths: In 1913 a previous owner tripped over the second floor banister, fractured his hip, and suffered a concussion, dying three days later. In 1969, a boy chasing pigeons on the roof fell over the edge and impaled himself on the iron fence below.
Drive By Sorrel-Weed House
Built in 1838, the Sorrel-Weed House has a reputation for being one of the most haunted buildings in Savannah. People claim to see figures in the windows and hear disembodied voices inside the house. The connecting carriage house behind the main house was said to have housed a female African-American slave who was murdered by a member of the family.
Drive By Davenport House
Built to be a private residence by Isaiah Davenport, the Davenport House is now a house museum and is home to several different ghost stories, including the most famous story surrounding a cat. While there is no cat living in the Davenport House, many visitors have reported seeing a cat run from room to room or sit in the window sill and watching the people walk by outside.
Drive By Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace
The Birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, was constructed in 1821. This house is an incredibly popular spot for the ghost tours in Savannah. Sarah, Juliette's grandmother, is said to still haunt the old mansion, and now that the building is a house museum, it is entirely possible to catch a glimpse of Sarah while on tour.
Drive By Owens-Thomas House
Now a house museum, the Owens-Thomas House was built in 1819, and according to several accounts, a ghostly figure of a man has been haunting the building since the upper floors were being used as apartments. Even now, the staff occasionally hears the sounds of footsteps, noises that they assume originate with straggling members of their tour group, only to find that there are nothing but empty rooms.
Drive By The Pirates' House
The Pirates' House, constructed in 1794, was originally a bar and boarding house for sailors. Reportedly, the basement was used to shanghai unwary (and unconscious) men through a secret tunnel which led to the Savannah River. These men were forced into seafaring service against their will.
