So...the wife and I had a weekend getaway for Labor Day. We decided to drive down to Savannah and take in some sights. One of the tours we went on
was a ghost tour and one of the houses visited was 432 Abercorn Street. We were given a lot of accounts of history of the house and some terrible
storied of what had/may have occurred there.
I am a HUGE skeptic of ghosts and hauntings but my wife believes in them whole heartedly. The tour guide showed us pictures of what appeared to be
human like figures in the windows from tours years past. Apparently the house has been vacant for a long time as well. The odd thing about the house
being vacant is that it is located right on one of the squares which are HIGHLY sought after to live on and most houses sell for $1million+ on these
Now, I decided to do something not so smart later in the evening and went back with another couple, after some libations. My thought was to PROVE it
was not haunted. I had heard stories all night from different people about how there were tools still left in the house from workers and what not,
but on the tour you are not allowed to go up the steps as it is considered trespassing so nobody could actually look into the second or third floor
windows to see.
Now the not so smart part is that when I went back I decided to climb the balcony on the right side of the house. It took me about 30 seconds to get
to the second floor balcony. I quickly walked down the balcony and looked in each window and indeed the house appeared abandoned and there were some
tools in the house. Once at the other end of the balcony I climbed to the third floor balcony. All of this took maybe 2 minutes. By the time I got
onto the third floor balcony the first police officer showed up so I laid down flat.
The officer was a female and saw my wife and the other couple standing there in front of the house and said there had been a call about a breaking and
entering on the property. My wife and the other couple assured the officer that they were only looking, meanwhile I am laying on the third floor
listening to the conversation.
The officer tells them that it is not a safe house to be at, which seemed odd since it was very nice looking just nobody lived there and there were
stories about it.
About that time, 3 more officers show up and they all park on the side of the square directly in front of the house. This puts me in the predicament
of being able to get down. So I slowly turn my body around, still laying flat and inch my way down to the other end of the balcony, still looking in
windows and still seeing tools and whatnot.
Now the odd part is at the second window I pick up movement out of the corner of my eye and look in and the movement appears to be a shadow, but it
stops. The shadow looks like that of a full grown adult but I don't see anyone in there and the shadow, while still there, is not moving.
I don't really stop for too long as I want to get down so I don't get arrested. I crawl past the last window and again see movement, this time the
shadow stops but is now in the room I am crawling past, which is a different room from the one I crawled past in the second window and divided by a
I looked over to my right to see if there was an officer that was on the street, thinking they could be casting a shadow but there was nobody there.
I confirmed this by finally standing up climbing back down the back side of the balcony floors and climbing over the brick wall, finally dropping down
to the sidewalk beside the house. There was nobody there and when I walked back around front to meet up with the other 3, the officers were all
patrolling the park/square in front of the house.
My question is really this.....has anyone on here ever heard of this house and does anyone know what stories about it are and are not true for a
Anywho...that's my not so smart moment from my weekend travels! Hope you enjoyed.
