Real Ghost Stories



It was around 1:00 am and I had this strange feeling, so I turned over in my bed and opened my eyes. There was this white figure, five feet away, it became clearer by the second and soon I was able to make out eyes, nose, friendly smile, and most of the figure. It smiled at me and left.

I told my friends about it and they said they thought it was a ghost. I named him Steve. I still see or hear him around today but nothing like the first encounter. I was staying in a hotel in Savannah, Georgia and I was standing in the parlor eating chocolate kisses and I was about to go downstairs to the room and I saw a shadow on the wall that didn't move with mine. I knew I was alone so I assumed it was Steve. I started walking down the stairs and I hear creaks that the stairs had never made before and booming sounds followed me. They sounded like feet. I think that Steve was traveling with me that trip.

Later I heard that all sorts of weird things were happening around there. Mysterious mist in the graveyards, voices with no one speaking and (my favorite) a little girl giggling and pulling on your skirt when your alone. The town was said to be haunted and I knew that about a month before I came to town, they dug skeletons out of the walls of the room I was staying in.

I love that place and the Hotel was called the Foley House Inn.

Dear Delaney,

I too will have to stop by Foley House Inn.

I have much enjoyed Georgia cities and their charm, especially Savannah, Atlanta and Augusta (golf anyone).

I am not one for keeping ghosts as friends, as I strongly believe they are meant to cross over. As I have said before, would you want yourself or your loved ones to be trapped in limbo land?

I do not think that was your ghost friend Steve you encountered either. That was the hotel's uninvited and unpaying guest who checked in and never checked out.--Abby

sorry, but no thanks. Skeletons just dug out of the room? No idea how they came to be there? Huh, uhh. I couldn't do it. I admire the fact that you find this unsetteling. I will certainly keep that hotel name in mind and make sure if ever in savannah I locate a holiday inn.

Ah sweet Savannah, next to New Orleans probably the second most haunted city in America. Thank you for the info on the hotel. If I am ever back down that way I will have to stop in a check it out.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.
