|Investigating The Windsor Hotel in Americus, GA|
Many of you may not know this about me, but I am a ghost hunter. That's right...I hunt ghosts for a hobby! My brother, Andy is the founder of the Atlanta Ghost Hunters and we have been doing this for many, many years now.
The Atlanta Ghost Hunters has a group of investigators that are truly some of the coolest folks you could ever know. We have investigated some really awesome places, and have gone into some spaces where some really gruesome things have happened. And while some people think that ghost hunting is a farce, what I can say is there are so many more people, that a some point in time, have had some sort of experience with the spirits. What is so interesting is that most people are more than willing to share their experiences with us, regardless of their spiritual beliefs. And why not?? I know in my faith as a Christian, I more than believe in the spirits. And when you have done as many investigations as I have with this group, you know that there are some serious spooking going on. And for me, I believe what ever it is that is trying to communicate with us is trying to communicate with us all the time. They are everywhere. They are around you right now as you read this blog post.
We have had experiences from disembodied voices, EVP's, knocks, foot steps, whispers, growls, grabs, bumps and kicks. And sometimes, when we are investigating nothing at all happens. I have been scared and thoroughly spooked out. And I have been totally fine during an investigation. It is really interesting, fascinating thing to do, and if you are ever given the opportunity to try something like this...go...you won't be the same.
Over the years, the Atlanta Ghost Hunters has partnered The Bert Show, a syndicated morning radio show that is based in Atlanta. And for years they have shared clips from the many ghost hunts that The Atlanta Ghost Hunters has done. The DJ's have even participated in the hunts with us and have experienced it for themselves, The Atlanta Ghost Hunter and The Bert Show Halloweens have become a tradition and partnership in Atlanta.
This weekend we are at it again! In partnership with The Bert Show, The Atlanta Ghost Hunters are heading to a BIG location!! This location (Pictured below) has had a reported 10,000 deaths inside the building! More to come on Part 2!!
It housed the very first female serial killer, Lavinia_Fisher. The jail was operational from 1803 - 1939. Some of the last 19th-century high-sea pirates were jailed here in 1822 while they awaited hanging. The jail was active after the discovery of Denmark Vesey's planned slave revolt. In addition to several hundreds of free blacks and slaves jailed for their involvement, four white men convicted of supporting the 1822 plot were imprisoned here. Vesey spent his last days in the tower before being hanged. During the Civil War, Confederate and Federal prisoners of war were incarcerated here. It is one of more than 1400 historically significant buildings within the Old and Historic District.
Scared yet?? I'm not! Nor is the rest of The Atlanta Ghost Hunter Team! We head to our location this weeked and will start our investigation late in the evening Saturday going into the early morning on Sunday. And the result of the hunt will be aired on The Bert Show, on October 31st.
So now you know a little bit more about me...The Sunshine Toker...I am a ghost hunter!!
