Nearly every building in downtown Savannah is historic, and visitors admire the traditions of the south upheld by its citizens, but when the sun goes down, Savannah’s quaint historic charm fades and grim, ghastly tales of the past begin to make their way known. Savannah, Georgia is known as America’s Most Haunted City, and rightly so! War, famine, and voodoo have all had a go at this little land of Dixie and its untouched appearance screams of the past horrors and devastation that once visited the city. While visiting this historic town during the holiday season, be sure to check out one of these spooky haunted tours!
