Why is Augusta So Haunted?

The last of the original 13 colonies, Augusta witnessed the birth of a nation amidst bloodshed and revolution. The city was founded in 1736 and originally functioned as Georgia’s state capital. It was also a popular trading post and offered ample opportunities for early settlers and tradesmen.

Augusta was also a very turbulent place to live due in part to the Revolutionary War. The Siege of Augusta was very bloody and killed countless soldiers and civilians. The Civil War further stained the city’s soul. During this time, the town wasn’t shy about flaunting its vested interest in slavery. Augusta had a lot of plantations, and sharecropping was starting to hit its stride.

The high society classes reveled in lavish displays of wealth. Looks were everything in 19th-century Augusta, and nothing was more important to these Southern Gentlemen and Ladies than keeping up appearances. Despite this, secrets hid behind closed doors, and whispers echoed of lives snuffed out prematurely, whether due to war, slavery, or other unfortunate circumstances.

This potent mix of violence, despair, and inequality created a perfect storm of otherworldly activity in Augusta. All these years later, the undead still can’t escape the colonial town that claimed their lives. Are they restless fallen soldiers, those who endured unspeakable horrors in the shadows of opulence, or something else entirely? Find out on a spine-chilling August ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours!
