AUGUSTA STATE UNIVERSITY
AUGUSTA, GEORGIA

Augusta State University has long been considered one of the most haunted buildings in Augusta GA thanks to the presence of several spirits.

One of the most well-known spooks said to be haunting the University is the spirit of Emily Galt, a lady who died around 140 years ago when she chose to join her dead fiancé in the afterlife by jumping to her death from a window in Bellevue Hall.

You can still see the names of Emily and her little sister Lucy etched into the window pane along with the date – 1861. Apparently, the girls used Emily’s engagement ring to make their mark.

Witnesses say that it is often possible to hear what sounds like a couple arguing, presumably because Emily did not want her love to head off to fight in the war and he felt it was his duty to do so.

Other activity in the hall includes the television turning on by itself and the phones in the building behaving rather oddly. There are also some spooky tales linked to Benet House which currently houses the university’s admissions office.

Reports of paranormal activity include a gray figure that flashes quickly past doorways, phantom footsteps, and a chair that rocks by itself!

There are also stories of the ghost of a Confederate soldier dressed in a long gray coat and yellow sash walking among the graves at Walker Cemetery.

The hauntings are all said to stem from the fact that the college campus was once the site of a number of Civil War-era homes and a military arsenal.
