Do you have a paranormal experience or photos of the haunted house at 432 Abercorn Street in Savannah to share?

Contact me and I will post them here!

Of all the ghost stories in Savannah, Georgia, the haunted house at 432 Abercorn Street is one of the most recent stories to gain popularity. I first learned about the house on the Scary Ghost Tour, and later featured it in my book, Georgia Spirits and Specters. A surprisingly high number of people have had paranormal experiences at that house, and there are few who don’t get a feeling of evil forboding there.

When I posted a blog entry about a strange anomaly in a photo of the house at 432 Abercorn, I had no idea that so many people were on the Internet looking for information about the house. This page is a chance for you to learn the stories and share your own. Let’s get some conversations going and find out what’s happening at this mysterious house!

    RE: 432 Abercorn Street.

    Beth,
    If you go to Google Maps (or Google Earth, but the imagery is very distorted), you will find an ORB in the courtyard to the right of the house. You are technically on East Gordon street, looking across the road at the tall ironwork fence surrounding Abercorn’s yard. The glow appears to be floating in midair, with no obvious reflection-causing surfaces around. Nor does the glow appear to be “on something.” Reflections, no matter what is casting them, have to have a surface to “land on”- but this one doesn’t! It seems the Google “street-level” mapping van caught an orb as it drove by the house. Be safe and have fun.

    Best wishes,
    Keith

  2. Oh, I definitely see what you are talking about. I also noticed an odd anomaly to the upper left: a blurry white patch in front of a tree. I wish the Google Maps pics were higher resolution so we could REALLY zoom in!

    I was in Savannah this past week and found your website, so of course got obsessed with this house! However, when we visited the second floor had curtains and the entire front of the house had what looked like new shutters. Therefore you couldn’t even try to see anything that all the other photos on here showed, which was a bummer! How long ago were these things added and by whom?

  4. Hi Kelly. The windows were covered in the summer of 2011 following vandalism at the house. Someone broke the beautiful stained glass window in one of the front doors. It’s just so sad that someone would do that, and I can’t blame the owners for trying to protect their house. I think in many ways, though, it only makes people more curious.

    I have gone on a couple of these “ghost tours” for fun and as always hear the tragic or scary stories associated with them but as always never see anythingat all to prove these homes or locations have “ghosts”. I just completed the 6th Sense tour in Savannah directed by Nicholas. Nicholas was articulate and entertaining but nothing was ever seen at the Abercorn house or any of the other locations other than the somewhat spooky appearance that is promagated by shadows of low light at night and the absence of lights inside the homes being used as the source of the ghost stories. I suggest any unlit house at night will generate the same spooky appearance. I really do try to keep an open mind, and will continue to do so, but other than these stories obviously being used to generate income for ghost tours, I see nothing at all to suggest any home in Savannah or anywhere else for that matter is haunted. Sorry ghost hunters. In my opinion, people who want to believe in ghosts will see whatver they want to see and are typically the same type of people who also believe that pyramids create energy and that they can speak to the dead via wigi (sic) boards and seances.

    Thank you for posting my comments. I stand corrected.

  7. Hi Richard. I am always happy to hear from skeptics, so thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Like many bloggers, I have to manually approve comments because I get so much spam from bots. You posted your comments while I was on vacation and away from the computer. I am back at work now and catching up. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Savannah!

    Beth, I absolutely loved Savannah and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to tour a beautiful, fascinating historic city. We will certaqinly return. I love to read and plan to read a lot more about Savannah. I also plan to download your books on my Kindle. Thanks for your open-minded approach to comments from people with different veiwpoints. Yes, I am a skeptic. Sometimes to a fault. I guess I owe that to my background of being a neuroscientist and clinician and therefore my views are often biased by traditional science. I would love to see or find proof of ghosts, particularly benevolent ones, as such findings would validate that there is life after death, at least in some sense.

    Also, you may want to look at how to adjust your beautiful photo as it partially covers your responses.

  10. My mom moved to Savannah after she had visited there a few times, and she just loves it. Skepticism isn’t a bad thing: the best paranormal investigators are skeptical and go in to each investigation with the intent of debunking the claims. (As in, that knocking sound is just your air conditioning kicking on, not a noisy ghost.) My husband is a skeptic, and I really enjoyed finally investigating with him. Having that extra perspective can be really beneficial. I’ve certainly experienced things that I classify as paranormal, but I still can’t say for certain whether those things were caused by an actual disembodied spirit. Maybe there is some other explanation. The questions are what keep me searching, so I hope I never have all the answers.
