Why is Montgomery So Haunted?

Known simultaneously as the Cradle of the Confederacy and the Birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement, “The Gump” has a troubled and violent past that rears its head at night. The Coushatta people once inhabited the land where Montgomery stands today. By 1814, the land was again forced out of the hands of the Creek, and European settlers began filing in. With them came the cotton gin, a means of production whose terrible legacy still haunts the city today.

By 1847, the city had become the capital of Alabama and the early center of the newly formed Confederacy by 1861. POW camps littered the empty fields near the town In the earliest days of the war. Today, places like the Montgomery Riverwalk Statidum are filled with the terrible phantoms and screams of tortured Union soldiers.

Montgomery became a hub for innovation and progress in the South, but this victory for the African-American community was short-lived. Harsh and racist Jim Crow laws made life unbearable for black communities. Soon, Montgomery became the Birthplace of the Civil Rights movement.

Martin Luther King’s speech was held on the stairs of the Capitol building and still echoes loudly today. His energy is felt in Montgomery, along with famous country stars and writers whose souls remain behind in the city’s thick spiritual atmosphere. Find out all the horrendous details with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours any night of the week.

Most Haunted Places in Montgomery, AL

Alabama State Capitol

The ravages of the Civil War infiltrate nearly every aspect of life in Montgomery. Alabama’s capitol is teeming with restless and irrational spirits craving a solace they did not receive in their waking life. A grieving widow roams the halls of the Alabama State Capitol searching for her husband, who was lost to the horrors of a war that showed no mercy. Now, she shrieks her way into the petrified hearts of unlucky security guards.

Capitol Towers Apartments

Montgomery’s most haunted apartments carry with them a melting tale of inferoes, heroes, and horror. Dale’s Penthouse, the finest restaurant in Montgomery, once stood atop this ten-story building. Twenty-five people lost their lives one chilly February night in 1967 due to poorly planned fire escapes and a raging fire that was started by a lit pipe. Whispy apparitions now dart through the renovated apartments, and the faint smell of smoke is often heard from the ground level.

Alabama Department of Archives and History

Located in the South Wing of the Alabama State Capitol building, the Alabama Department of Archives and History contains Civil War artifacts displayed in the Museum of Alabama. But, the actual people from the Civil War who are also casually strolling these archives attract the most interest. Take the spirit of Julia Tutwiler, an outspoken early advocate for women’s and African-American rights, who has been spotted roaming the bookshelves, keeping a close eye on all who enter.
