haunted around atlanta

all places around atlanta that i want to go explore!

Alpharetta - Hopewell School - Apparently it was shut down in the 70's after 7 elementary school children were killed by a poisoning. A strange presence is all throughout the old school which has been abandoned ever since then.

Alpharetta - the old food giant - A lady's body was found by the alpharetta police department in the woods behind the old food giant store, The lady seems to be angry about something cause her spirit lurks the area! There has been several times and reports of screaming coming from the wooded 2 acre lot. The Alpharetta police look but never seem to find any evidence of fowl play in the woods, they stay puzzled wondering and waiting for the next...The events have happened at 12:00am on random nights. The Alpharetta police say she only strikes at midnight!

Buford - Haunted Antebellum Asylum - RT 23 (Buford hwy) - It is a really hard place to find, but now construction has been booming in that area (new mall of GA), area kids have found the place. They say it is haunted and that some homeless, transient kids live there part-time. Update: If this is the same place off hwy 23 in Buford Georgia, just behind the public library, then it is indeed boarded up all around. With no access.

Cherokee County - Canton - Hell Church - is a place located in the old part of Canton. There is a long narrow road going back into the woods that is very difficult to get down. You then come upon a church, out in the middle of no where, that is very small (one room ) and white. Located directly across the road is a cemetery with graves dating back to the 18th century. Although there have been accounts of graves freshly dug. The story goes that back in the 80's a boy was found mutilated. Most say that it was a cult killing. But the church was shut down and the newspaper clipping of this horrible event still exists. The church has been re-opened but there are still accounts of hearing faint piano music coming from inside the church late at night.

Duluth - Abandoned Theatre - Loud knocking of outside backdoors. Then suddenly stops for a few seconds and then begins knocking.

Marietta - Devil's Turnaround - Large objects will be thrown if set on ground, orbs, lightning, mist, very cold winds, shrieking, kids laughing, chanting, yelling, screaming all around a bad place to go. People have come back and had large bruises and fang marks on legs, upper arms, wrists and necks. Crucifixes, prayer, holy water only make whatever is there mad. If you go, wear no crosses or anything Christian like. Weekends are the worst time.

Marietta - Kennesaw House - Used as a hospital during the Civil War, now a museum, people have seen ghosts of soldiers here. An entire hospital "scene" completes with soldiers in their hospital beds and 2 people witnessed doctors working with them at the same time in the basement area or lower floor. Employees have also heard several unexplained noises.

Marietta - The Witch's Graveyard An 1800's graveyard - Where a supposed witch is buried. Some phenomenon like knocking coming from underground and sounds like banshees crying, drums playing from nowhere. Fog around the cemetery and no fog anywhere else, a 15 degree temperature drop from being outside and then stepping inside the gates.

Palmetto - The Palmetto House - In the mid 1800's, this house was built by a wealthy man who inherited his fathers shipping fortune after he died. Over the years up until the 1910's, the family lived very happily in this house, enjoying parties in the music room, dinners in the beautiful dinning room, and long late night talks about ghosts, witches, and other paranormal things in the parlor (which is where the most paranormal events happen the most). On one particular night, the family had all went to bed except for the master, and a few of his drinking buddies. Around the hours of 12:30am to 3:48am they sat and talked about ghosts and witches, and vampires. As soon as the subject on witches started, all the gas lit lights went out. The master got up and went to the lights over the fireplace, (where a BEAUTIFUL glass and gold embroidered mirror was) to light them back up, he saw the face of an elder woman he blinked and the face vanished, he panicky asked his friends if they saw the face, they all mysteriously were dead, hair white, along with the skin. When the local police arrived, they arrested the man for the murder of them men. When he asked them how could he have killed them, the head sergeant told him, the men had been dead for 2 hours!! When the master arrived at the station, he noted the clock was currently stating 6:00am on the dot. THe next day he was hung for the murder of not only the two men, but his daughter, son, and wife. Around 1958 another family purchased the house, and renovated it back to its former glory. On the nights of October 15th-23rd, strange things would happen in the house such as furniture moving, things breaking, things of that nature. But when the family moved in the first time, they noted that the mirror over the fireplace mantel was the only thing that looked brand new. Around the late 1960's the owner of the house and his daughter were the only surviving people of the family. His son was killed in a car wreck, and his wife's death was noted as "natural causes". His daughter killed herself in the upstairs bathroom in 1968. He shortly killed himself after that. Strange things such as lights on in the house (when there are no power to the house), things moving, strange growling noises, odd foot like sounds stomping upstairs (the stairs have fallen down so now you can't reach the upstairs), and an evil frightening cackle by an old woman is heard on the nights of Oct 15th-20th. The house now lay in ruin and is decaying fast. You can reach this house from I-85 north or south, take I-85 north or south till you reach the Union City exit, get off the exit heading west on Hwy 138, when you reach the red light under the rail road tracks, take a left onto Hwy 29. Follow that till you see a chevron gas station. The old house is directly behind the gas station. WARNING: ENTER HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK, THE PALMETTO POLICE PATROL THIS LOCATION QUITE FRENQUENTLY
