Today we’re sharing ghost stories of Savannah – our favorites including the story of Tomochichi, The Pirate’s House and the Colonial Park Cemetery.
The Ghost of Tomochichi, the Yamacraw chief who who helped the founders of Savannah establish our city in 1733, allegedly resides in Wright Square. Ghost tour guides will tell you to find the large rock monument to Tomochichi on the southeast corner of Wright Square, run around it three times saying “TOMOCHICHI.” His ghost may appear.
The Pirate’s House is a restaurant in the downtown historic district. They say that in one of the back rooms a little girl sits on stairs that go…nowhere. Seriously, stairs that go NOWHERE. If she’s shy, there are real pirates walking around.
The Colonial Park Cemetery is located at the intersection of Abercorn and Oglethorpe. Aside from being beautiful in the daytime, there are many hauntings and haints that reside among the old gravestones and lurking among the clumps of Spanish moss dumped from the live oaks that are scattered throughout the premises.
There are so many great things to do here when you visit, and choosing your own ghost-spotting adventure in Savannah is just one of them. We’re always here to help.
