Newnan - Cedar Creek Bridge - The bridge over Cedar Creek on Roscoe Road in Coweta County is actually a replacement of the original bridge in question. In the 1930's a horrible accident on the bridge took the lives of a woman and her baby. The woman has manifested herself in voice and appearance in various ways over the last several decades. Hauntings include forlorn screaming (hence the name), rapidly dropping temperatures, and a ghost car.

Newnan - Manget-Brannon Theater for the Arts - Theater is housed in what was once a warehouse, probably for cotton, which was abandoned for years until it was inhabited by the theater company. Volunteers and actors have felt a distinct presence, many of them collaborating on one particular area on the floor on the way to the bathroom. Several have believed the presence to be distinctively male. A psychic visited there last year and said she saw a man wearing a suit walk through one of the doors. She later saw him standing in a particular corner of the stage. He has been blamed with man petty prop disappearances.

Paulding County - Pickets Mill - A misty figure run between two trees and vanish.

Peachtree Industrial - Peachford Mental Hospital - A woman wearing an older nurse outfit is said to roam the hallways and sometimes crack the doors of patients rooms. It is believes she makes sure the patients are okay. Cold spots are felt when you're in the gymnasium, kid's room, and conference rooms.

Pearson - the Pearson light - The Pearson Light is one of the best-known stories. A long time ago a poor person was walking with a lantern and got ran over by a train. All that was left was his head. If you go to the place you can see a big light that will chase you. Some say that if you curse, yell, throw things at it, or party and be loud it will crush the top of your car in.

Pickens County - Carver Mill Bridge - There is a bridge off Carver Mill Road in western Pickens County that at one time some 50-60 years ago used to be wooden, that crossed over Scarecorn Creek. Years ago, this couple drove across the bridge and it collapsed on them, thus causing them to fall into the creek below killing them both. The bridge now is paved and well supported. You can drive onto the bridge anytime at night and shut the car off and all artificial light(flashlights, headlights, cell-phone background lights, pager blinking red lights, etc.)must be shut off and wait patiently in the car and this black figure of an average size man will walk from the end of the bridge and to your car and look into the windows. If a woman is in your car it will most likely go to her first and will continue to examine your car. If you crank your car, without turning on your lights, and begin to drive off, the man will chase you until you are off the bridge. Then the ghost will disappear into the night. The ghost is there to try to scare people off the bridge so that they won't face the same fate that the couple did. BEWARE: The ghost doesn't always walk right to your car. Sometimes it just appears at your window and can scare you plum to death. It is best if you do this during a full moon so that there is plenty of "natural" light to see the ghost with.

Rome - Berry College � The Road between the new & old campus - On the road between the main campus of Berry College and the new mountain campus, the 2-mile road is bordered by woods on both sides. In the days before there was a mountain campus, students from Berry would go up into the woods to fool around. One such couple who attended Berry in the '40's is the subject of a tragic accident that occurred at Berry. After making love, the young man and young woman got into an argument, and the boy left his girlfriend in the woods to walk home alone while he drove. After driving a little while, he felt sorry and turned around to pick her up. On the way back, he wasn't paying attention to the road and he hit something. Assuming it was a deer, he got out to look--and it was his lover! She was dead.

Sparkles appear in thousands when taking pictures almost like confetti.

Roswell - The Public House Restaurant - Supposedly back in the days of the civil war this place was the Generals outpost. The upstairs was some kind of nursing station where they took some of the wounded to get help.

Rutledge - Hard Labor Creek State Park (Camp Rutledge)- Two ghosts, a man and a little boy whose name is Ethan. The child, is not very bothersome. Ethan will sometimes have a red ball he rolls toward you, after a few feel the ball disappears.

Sale City - Shady Grove Cemetery - Located in the middle of a tight "S" curve on a small dirt road outside of Sale City Georgia.

Locals say to park your car on the side of the road near the cemetery and look at the small prayer chapel that is located in the middle of the cemetery, while being quiet, you can hear moans and high pitch noises coming from the chapel and at times there seems to be a low glooming light that emerges from the foundation of the chapel, locals say that upon approaching the cemetery at night there seems to be an unexplainable chill that goes down your spine every time you try to pass through the arch at the entrance of the cemetery. (Be careful when visiting, because the authorities have been known to patrol the dirt road frequently.) - It would be a good idea to let the proper authorities know what you are doing and ALWAYS get permission.

Savannah - 1790 Inn and Tavern - This Inn was built in 1790 and is haunted by a girl named Anna She was a seventeen year old girl who was shunned after getting pregnant by a sailor. The sailor was said to have jumped out of the third story window and died. He haunts the same room the window was located. Guests claim to lose things such as wallets, ID's, and underclothes. They will later be found in planters or behind bookshelves. People have also reported hearing Anna in the room moving things around. - December 2003 Update/ Correction: The story is that she was in love with a sailor, but HE did NOT jump from the window... SHE DID. (He had gone to sea and was not there to throw himself out of a window) She was deeply depressed because he was going to sea and leaving her, most likely never to return. It is said that she could see the sails of his boat as it went down river and out to sea. She threw herself from a 3rd floor window. There is also said to be a woman who haunts the kitchen in the inn who used to practice voodoo, and a spirit haunts the bar/restaurant area. The submitter claims to have taken photos throughout the inn, but have not caught any anomalies on film. However, when they tried taking pictures in the bar area, their camera suddenly failed to work. Once they left the area, the camera functioned with no problem. They also had to buy new batteries twice in one weekend, as if something had drained them. On the second floor a linen closet, they felt a foreboding presence. Later, when talking to a housekeeper at the inn, they were told she had had a dream once of a man clad in 1700's clothing coming out of that same closet. She had no idea that they had a really creepy feeling each time they walked by it. The second time they stayed at the 1790's they remarked to the clerk as they checked in, that at least they weren�t going to have to sleep in "Anna's room". The clerk told them that the window she threw herself from was not actually her bedroom at the time... her bedroom was room 101... which is the room they was staying in! When they reached the room and preceded to unlock the door, it wouldn't open. Both she and her husband tried, the bottom lock was unlocked, but the deadbolt wasn't. They had knocked on the door, jokingly saying, "Anna... come on, open up." They returned to the innkeeper and she went up with us to check out the problem. She informed them that the deadbolts could only be locked from the inside and the innkeeper has a master key for those. She pushed down on the door handle and the door opened with no problem! It was if the deadbolt had never been locked, yet they BOTH knew that it had been. The 1790's Inn (is actually spelled out as Seventeen Hundred Ninety�s Inn, in case you want to search the net for it) is most definitely filled with an atmosphere of spirits from the past, you can feel it all around you if you are sensitive to that kind of thing.

Charlie has been known to play the organ downstairs at night, appear on stage, find lost props minutes before the actor has to appear on stage, whisper lines to actors who draw a blank, and even touch a few people from time to time. Although benevolent and helpful, he often frightens people to the point that they will not enter the auditorium alone.

Movement upstairs and in the catwalks is also very common. While Charlie in the Clegg building usually causes commotion at night, Jesse seems to be around 24 hours a day- even while there are large groups and classes in the theatre.

Date: 7/17/2005 12:11:00 AM  From Authorid: 3680    these were very interesting except for the cedar creek bridge haunting. there is a tale like that in every country in georgia and a lot of my out of state friends claim the same tell in different counties in there states as well. it is an old urban ledgened... along the lines of a woman had a terrible accident on an old bridge that has been replaced, her baby was killed, and if you go there in the middle of the night, and say "I killed you baby" or something along the lines like that, you're car will crank up on its on, and you will hear a baby crying... blah blah. I would like to know if the incident really did happen and if so, then where... great post...  
Date: 7/17/2005 7:33:00 AM  From Authorid: 62881    I live in Waverly Hall...the cemetary is close to me. A lot of the neighborhood kids get together around Halloween and go to the cemetary (at night) to see if they can "see or hear" anything. A friend of mine lives next door to the cemetary. His brother is buried there. I have been to the Berry College campus with one of my Aunts' who went to school there. Those stories were being told back when she went to college there in the 60's. I grewup in Troup County but never heard those stories. I was born in Newnan Hospital...then known as Coweta County General Hospital. My mother used to work there before I was born and a few years after. I had never heard these stories either. Interesting post, though!
