Rhodes Hall 
Atlanta, Georgia 

Rhodes Hall is affectionately known as ‘the castle on Peachtree’ thanks to its grand appearance. The building was constructed back in 1904 by Amos Rhodes.

These days the upper floors play home to The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, while the lower portion is a very popular choice for some of Atlanta’s most opulent weddings.

However, as beautiful as this house is there is something dark lurking beneath the surface – it is haunted! The majority of the paranormal activity that goes on here has been attributed to the wife of Amos Rhodes who actually died in the property. She is said to play with the lights and there are reports of unexplained footsteps and disembodied voices.

However, she is not alone in her haunting. Some visitors to the house have reported seeing apparitions of giggling children and the basement is said to be home to a much more malevolent presence which witnesses have described as a dark and evil shadow figure.

Rhodes Hall makes no secret of its reputation as one of the most haunted locations in Atlanta, regular tours of the building are available and it has in the past hosted keen ghost hunters!

Sagtikos Manor
Long Island, New York

Sagtikos Manor is one of the most historic buildings that Long Island has to offer and it once played host to President George Washington himself. It is also believed to be haunted.

Witnesses have described seeing the ghost of a Native American Indian in the loft of the property on a number of different occasions.

There have also been other reports of shadowy figures standing on the front porch and of doorknobs turning and/or jiggling by themselves.

Another of the popular stories linked to Sagtikos Manor is that in the 1700s an Indian Princess believed to have live on what are now the grounds of the manor was attempting to rescue settlers from Fire Island when a storm came in.

She made several successful crossings in her canoe before disappearing.

She was never found, but witnesses have said that the princess and some of the men that she rescued can be seen on the shore at night.
