The Hamilton-Turner Inn was made famous by Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Paranormal activities inside the inn include the sounds of children laughing, billiard balls rolling around on the upper floors and sightings of a strange, cigar-smoking man sitting on the roof.
The Marshall House dubbed by USA Today to be one of the best haunted hotels in the U.S. Since 1851, this hotel has been used as a hospital three times – once for Union soldiers and twice for 19th century Yellow Fever epidemics. Guests have reported their fair share of paranormal experiences such as seeing ghosts in the hallways, hearing nonexistent children running down the halls and faucets turning on by themselves.

Patrons have spotted a lady wearing white at the top of the restaurant’s staircase. Ghosts have also been known to throw bottles, breeze by patrons and play tricks on staff members.
