Savannah History & Haunts Candlelit Walking Ghost Tour

660 reviews
Though charmingly romantic by day, Savannah becomes altogether spookier after sundown. Discover the city’s macabre side when you embark on a nighttime, ghostly walking tour, illuminated by candlelight. Meet your costumed guide in central Savannah after dark, and discover its historical squares, cobblestone streets, moss-draped trees, and even its cemeteries. As you go, learn about the city’s scariest ghost stories, unexplained happenings, and chilling characters.

Lined by a beautiful historic church, sweeping Spanish moss trees, benches & flowers! A monument stands to honor James Madison & easily located in the heart of downtown. A wonderful place to stop & enjoy the shade when it’s warm!

We walked through Madison square while walking through Savannah. There's so much to see, and it was a great place for a break, to sit on a bench and have an ice cream cone. There is a monument in the center to Revolutionary War Sargent William Jasper. I would recommend the walk through all of these beautiful squares and remembering those who fought for our freedom.

Notable for the Sorrel House and the big Episcopal church, this is one of the prettiest squares in town. You will want to linger and enjoy the charm and stately architecture. Nice landscaping.

Each of the 22 Squares add a certain charm and a new dimension to the historic district. The placards and signs were a great way to learn the early history of the city. This particular Square was planned out in 1839 and was the first of three to be constructed. It is named after James Madison – our 4th President. It was right on our path to the riverfront, and every time we passed by, we admired the grand canopy created by majestic Oak Trees with lots of hanging Spanish moss. Adjacent to it, are the St, John’s Episcopal Church, the Green-Meldrim House, and the Sorrel-Weed Museum – all of which we visited on various days. A lot of history took place right here. It is the area where the Siege of Savannah by General Sherman, took place in 1779. He made the Green Meldrim House his headquarters for a month after this. In the center of the Square, there is an imposing statue of Sergeant William Jasper holding a Flag in a dramatic posture. He was a Revolutionary War Hero who, in 1779, had climbed a wall of the fort to retrieve the American flag from the British, but was mortally wounded. Even though he was a non-commissioned Officer, he is honored every year on St. Patrick’s Day by a wreath placed at the foot of his statue. There are a few plaques to read all around. The two Canons on one end represent Georgia’s first two Highways It is a nice square to watch some wildlife. While relaxing on one of the benches waiting for a tour of the Green House, we spotted some cute Squirrels running around and Cardinals singing in the trees. Worth visiting for its historical value.
