Atlanta can be a very scary place.  There is a lot of history around here and it is important to know a little about it.  Sometimes the history is not so pleasant and has led to a lot of unanswered questions and happenings.  Here is a list of some haunted places throughout the metro area.  Please call on me if you think your house is haunted.  I can help you find another one – FAST!

Donaldson House – cold spots and footsteps are reported here.

Dunwoody – Brook Run – in the back of the park is a gated off area, when inside go down the road and go in the building on the right. There is a huge abandoned building that was a home for the mentally challenged. There are various areas with temperature changes, an extremely strange aura to the place, and pictures will reveal orbs. Cold spots on first and second floor, footsteps heard, doors open and close, and banging sounds on the walls. The most haunted is the 3rd floor where many believe a little boy hunts it.

Fox building – The face of a Confederate private has been photographed in a window.

Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater – Years ago a rock singer was killed on stage by a gunshot that come from the stadium. His spirit stills walks thru the seating area. Some have said that you can feel his hand on your neck.

The Masquerade – After-hours people have spotted the ghost of a tall black man wandering around inside the club. Heavy music amplifiers are found turned upside down. Also unexplained footsteps, cold spots, and unearthly screams are heard around the backstairs. The nightclub is rumored to be frequented by true vampires. It is said that a vampire actually lives on the premises. The building was once a textile mill where several young girls died in accidents and others developed tuberculosis because of the dangerous working conditions. Shrieks, footsteps and other noises are frequently heard during non-business hours on the back stairs, where cold spots are often felt. The building has been the site of a number of freak accidents including fires and structural collapses.

Metropolitan Ave. – There’s a bridge right over Metropolitan Ave by University St. It’s said that a young lady in a white dress stands under the bridge looking for a ride home. When one picks the woman up and takes her home, she gets out the car and says Thanks for the ride. Then she vanishes in thin air. Most people that pick this young lady up usually goes to the door of the young women house to make sure she made it in or where she went to. But when the door opens, it is the woman’s mother and she tells the people that every year someone comes to the house to drop off her daughter. The girl is her daughter who had been killed in a horrible car accident 10 years ago under a bridge on Metropolitan St. formerly known as Stewart Avenue.

Oakland Cemetery – This cemetery is the resting place for 3,000 to 4,500 confederate soldiers that died during Sherman’s Invasion of Atlanta. In one section of the cemetery is a statue of a large wounded lion in honor of The Unknown Confederate Soldier. People hear a disembodied voice giving “The Roll Call of Dead”, somberly calling out the names of the long dead soldiers.

The Shakespeare Tavern – During a production of Henry IV Part I in 1993, the actor playing Falstaff suddenly came from the men’s dressing room, very shaken. He had seen a very young boy dressed in a velvet suit much like children wore in the 1800’s beside his dressing table. Others have seen passing images and odd lights over the years. Sometimes when the theater is pretty much deserted, voices will be heard, as if a group is meeting together. There is a room in the top level of the building that sensitive people will not enter, because it is clammy and the energy feels terrible in there. An old man has been spotted on a couple of occasions. A female energy once warned of a fire, and sometimes upsets things in the women’s dressing room. Occasionally a shadowy figure can be seen on the catwalk above the stage.

Six Flags – People have seen a little girl wondering around pretending like she is lost. If you follow her she will lead you so far into the woods you won’t be able to find your way back, then you will turn around and she will vanish!

Anthony’s Restaurant – Old mansion, now high-class restaurant. Dishware flying across the restaurant has been reported. Large orbs can be seen on film. People that “were never there” play tricks on the surrounding grounds. Voices heard when you’re alone. The feelings of cold sensations when you pass through doorways, and hand on your back are strong.

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 because 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 

Roswell – Brunswick Zone – It has been known that an elderly bowler passed away while bowling, since then trash can lids randomly drop to the ground and the feeling of a dark presence pushes you while you are bowling.

RoswellPresbyterian Church Cemetery (1840) – Many of Roswell’s most outstanding citizens are buried here, including Archibald Smith and his wife Anne Margaret McGill Smith. – red orb across the cemetery grounds floating in between trees. Did not appear to be a light or plane. All present saw it. LOTS of ghostly forms and orbs captured on film and digital. One in particular was a white filmy mist bathing the side of a child’s grave. 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. The story goes something like, there was a soldier and a nurse who fell in love and got married, then the soldier was tried for some crime and was hung in the town square right across the street. So, they say that the soldier and the woman haunt the place today.

RoswellRoswell CemeteryFounders Cemetery in historic Roswell, GA.(Sloan Street) Contains the graves of some of Roswell‘s Founding Families, including Roswell King, James Bulloch and John Dunwody. The many unmarked graves are graves of the family servants. Orbs and mists witnessed by all.

Roswell – Roswell Mill – The old Roswell Mill is very uneasy as far as hauntings go. During the day, even if it is sunny outside and in the middle of summer, when one drives up to the mill, the temperature drops and it gets dark the closer you come to the main building. At night one can hear screams and cries from the women workers who were sexually assaulted and killed by soldiers. A gray haze covers the area at night. 2:00am on random nights. The Alpharetta police say she only strikes at midnight!eps are reported here.
