It's a concrete pillar. Not much to say other than it's a fun little stop, and the liquor store across the street is on point.

Since there is little to see in Augusta, I stopped by the Pillar to kill a few minutes, if that. It's a Pillar from an old market that has supposedly been cursed. So, if you happen to be in Augusta and are bored, stop on by

I was bored. I was in the area. It was easy to find parking although not much to see. Parked long enough to snap a picture. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way.

This is a unique column surrounded by mystery in an odd location on the corner of an intersection. The building behind it, which is now a tattoo parol, has taken great opportunity to name their shop after the pillar and the mural on the store is very well done. I recommend that if you're in Augusta, why not swing by... More

it is a well known attraction to most in Augusta, GA. children like to ride by it and say there it is, there it is. It is just one pillar on a street corner downtown to any one else but it is part of the great history of the town and has an unusual story that is easy to goggle.

I have lived in Augusta all my life. The haunted pillar is just a post that is on the corner of the street. No need for anyone to take a tour to see it, or pay any money to learn facts about it. It's in a bad part of downtown so don't go after dark, or with children or elderly... More

We were bored and needed something to do with our grandson soldier that we were visiting. Drove around downtown a bit, and stopped to see the pillar. Luckily I had some background info to read about it, or it would seem like nothing. It seems that the pillar was once part of a building that stood there. An itinerant preacher... More

Some Chamber of Commerce types are really stretching to create something from nothing here. The thing was just too heavy to move, or else it would have been long gone in Augusta, certainly not well known for preserving genuine historical artifacts. Now, if it had been a ten-foot-tall lighted plastic cross on top of a downtown building, the faithful would... More

This is all that remains from a farmers market that was wiped out by a tornado in the lat 1800's. Local legend say that trying to move or even touch the pillar may result in death! The pillar is on one end of Augusta's main drag. There are parts of it that are nice, and parts that are not so... More
