Meet the original owners of plantation houses and visit former Civil War hospitals.
Atlanta has long been held up as a model of the New South: modern, forward-thinking, fast-growing and home to many corporations. But in and around this vibrant city are many reminders of its Ante-Bellum past, and some of them allegedly do more than just suggest Atlanta's heritage.
HAUNTED ATLANTA tours five paranormal hot spots to hear their dark stories and see how the effects linger to the present day. The Kennesaw house and an 1848 home in Marietta both served as Civil War hospitals, and some say that spectral patients of the War Between the States can still be seen there. At the plantation mansions of Lockerly Hall and Barnsley Gardens, the original owners sometimes visit guests. But the epicenter of ghostly activity in the area is undoubtedly the site of Andersonville, the notorious Confederate prison camp, where 29,000 Union soldiers died in the most horrific conditions imaginable.
Whether you're a skeptic or believer, HAUNTED ATLANTA makes a convincing case for the past made present in this southern city.
