Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Fox Theatre

Built on a site where a convent once collapsed and claimed the lives of everybody inside, the historic Fox Theatre may be one of Atlanta’s premiere venues for live entertainment today, but its dark past clings to it like a shadow. With strange sightings, eerie noises, and a series of unexplained events, the theatre’s haunted reputation is undeniable, making it a destination for ghost hunters and curious thrill seekers.

Stone Summit Midtown

See the popular Stone Summit Midtown from a whole new perspective and learn more about the tragic and mysterious events at the famous Stone Summit fitness and climbing center over a walking ghost tour in Atlanta. The atmosphere around this popular spot changes at night, with unexplained chills and an eerie feeling enough to make even a skeptic shudder in fear.

Saint Mark United Methodist Church

This 18th-century church may be one of the most famous chapels in Atlanta, but its spooky past makes it a very popular haunt for restless spirits as well. Locals claim that the spirits of the vicious outlaws who once ruled the streets where the chapel is now located still lurk around the church, adding a layer of mystery and intrigue to its history and making it one of the most haunted locations in Atlanta.

The Hauntings of Atlanta

Nestled among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Atlanta is surrounded by rolling hills, lush greenery, and the densest urban tree coverage of any major city in the U.S. But the city’s dark past, marked by its roots in racism and its role as a Confederate stronghold, has left behind more than just picturesque landscapes and charming scenery.

From the echoes of Civil War battles to the restless spirits of jilted lovers, Atlanta’s haunted history adds a layer of intrigue to its bustling streets, making it a magnet for restless spirits and ghosts who have refused to move on. Innocent souls lost during the early railroad construction continue to wander the tracks, and the bloody violence that erupted during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s continues to plague the city.

But the scares don’t stop with the city’s history of racial violence, bloody battles, and crime. A series of tragic accidents, including the Great Atlanta Fire of 1917, where more than 1,900 buildings were burned to ashes, and unexpected deaths also add to ATL’s spooky reputation.

 

The Most Haunted Places in Atlanta, GA

 

History leaves traces, and in Atlanta, those traces just might reach out and give you a fright. Long-forgotten souls from the Civil War remain forever tied to the ATL’s oldest and largest cemetery at Oakland Cemetery, and the historic Rhodes Hall in Midtown Atlanta is said to be haunted by the ghosts of Mrs. Rhodes, who lived and died inside the home.

Even a luxury boutique hotel like the historic Ellis Hotel in Atlanta isn’t left out of the spooky scene, with ghostly figures from the deadly fire accident that razed down the building in 1946 still haunting its halls. The ghosts from the haunted graveyard where the historic Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse stands play around the building, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the already rich theatrical atmosphere.

Book a ghost tour with Atlanta Ghosts tonight to explore the historic Stone Summit Midtown and hear the ghostly stories that make Dogwood City a haunted hotspot whenever the sun goes down.
