Where are some of the best places to experience the paranormal in the South? I've been to parts of Savannah and Andersonville. Nothing too extravagant. I would like to get involved with a paranormal research team :su

Alabama has a LOT... The battlefields from the indian wars..the civil war Battlefields...Selma...The ghost town of Old Cahawba....Sloss is fun but everyone has hunted that place...I know a few amazing spots but not sharing in public till I have a report from the location...I will however try to think of a good list of down south sites to post for you. My main thing is monster hunting but any paranormal activity I look into if I get a chance.

read up a little on the Thirteen Alabama Ghosts. i went to one of the sites there. the grave of Grancer Harrison. didnt see anything but an exploded tomb.

it looks like the upper hand, is on the other foot.

i guess they would say we could set this world ablaze

i have never tried to succeed at anything, therefore i have never failed.

The 13 Alabama ghosts books are fantastic...every alabama school kid knows them. Remember that those books were written by a sweet little old lady Kathryn Tucker Windham  and while great southern folklore  those books are nor really giving you the darker side of the stories
or touching on a whole lot of the creepier places ... Alabama has some good places to find paranormal activity
Take a trip the Horseshoe Bend..visit the site of the battle Of Holy ground ..
Sloss is great but overplayed...I have seen some odd things in the tunnels but so has everyone else...the spirits there I think are playing for the tourists...

Old Brice hospital in Tuscaloosa

Cobb Cemetery in Jemison..( the site of some of the Blackwell gang killings)  and IF you can find a local willing to take you to it ..you will never find it on your own..the " witches grave"  in old Cambell cemetery ...don't say witch and avoid the owls ..

Spend the night at moundville.....

visit Adams Grove Presbyterian Church in Dallas county

Or if you are really brave you might be able to find a monster hunter who does expeditions into the swamps of south bama in search of Loup Garou, hoodoo lady ghosts ,  two toed tom and other " Swamp demons"   I might know one..lmao..

Ever been to New Orleans?  I am guessing there must be a lot of ghosts in that place.  I've thought about going just to see some of the cemeteries.

I have been going down there since I was 16 years old...you can feel the " vibe" of the place when you arrive ..it is amazing ,  It has ghosts yeah...but a lot more oddities as well.  I end up there on some of our tours when we get a  local werewolf lead ...ghosts , monsters, voodoo, vampires, cults, weirdos  its all in New Orleans

Well, in WV we have a few prisons and crazy houses people hype up, and the indian mounds.

Good for some laughs at the very least depending on your inclination

Defining the "South", and haing been a "reenactor' in various Civil War battles, excluding Gettysburg, PA, there are "bunches" of what are defined as 'haunted" battlefields and if there are towns bear-by, such as Fredricksburg, VA,  for just  1 of many, that are 'haunted" as well. Most are in and around northen VA., but one can go South, through, Charlston,SC, Savannah,GA, Atlanta,GA,  and down to the Gulf Coast states and find any number of "haunted lcations". To my knowledge, the last battle, was fought ina little NC. "town", as Gen. Sherman was marching  North to joing Gen. Grant in Va.,not that Granted needed any, as by the time the dust settled in Bentonville,NC., Gen. Lee had surrender and there was no more "Army of Northern Virginia" to deal with. If "haunted battlefields" are an interest, there are plenty of books that deal with the topic, locations, driving directions, locations of where to stay, etc. If one has the time,a good 3 months might be spent just driving stopping, sight seeing, in SC., NC., and VA. Be warned, it won't come cheap and the traffic will be as bad as the prices of where one might stay. Good luck.

Wow, that's really cool you do Civil War Reenactments. I've heard several ghost stories, where reenactors have had interesting encounters....One of my favorite stories, envolves a reenactor who was given ammunition, from a ghost! Really cool story. I think the story was featured on an episode of unsolved mysteries.

Battle of Chickamauga in Ga near Chattanooga TN. All kinds of legends and myths such as 'green eyes'. Civil War history abounds.

So many people think that the ghosts are 'out there somewhere' and that is not necessarily so. Just hear the etherial voices that come in the night, and the random psychobabble that courses through your brain by day. This is how they make impressions or influence on the living. Not all of this random chatter is your own brain activity, those who are untrained and unexperienced do not readily pick out the thread of etherial influence. A real psychic can pick out, focus, and amplify the spirit influence or message from the etherial background noise, and these ghosts or spirits are responsive to those who are paying attention to their influences.
