Work on ‘haunted’ Savannah Georgia home is underway (video)

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WJCL) – Crews are hard at work fixing up a Savannah home with ties to the early 1900s.

The house at 12 West Oglethorpe Avenue has been vacant for years and was hit by a fire a few years back. But now a Savannah businessman is spending more than a million dollars to fix it up.

“It’s fantastic to see them actually restoring it to its original state,” said Savannah resident Sandra Hensley. While there’s excitement about this old home coming back to life, there’s some who say, the original owners never left.

“My daughter just stopped, she’s a little 3 year old, she said, ‘mommy why is that lady crying?’” said Savannah resident Rebecca Debreceny. “What’s wrong with her?”

But what she saw - or rather what she didn’t - was chilling.

“I did not see anything,” said Debreceny. “But she was adamant that there was a lady there.”

That isn’t the only creepy story surrounding the house. It’s a featured stop on many ghost tours.

Many say it was the home of a doctor who spread yellow fever to his family and some even say it sits on top of a grave yard. The house was built in the early 20th century.
