The Cotton Mill in Jefferson, GA – This old cotton mill has a been shut down for nearly 50 years but has recently undertaken a restoration project turning it into an event center. Workers have seen several unexplainable acts including:

-dark objects running at them and then bolt to the ceiling
-foot steps and moans coming from under the floor*
-real objects failing from above
-dog or cat looking objects appearing in pots and chairs
-Blurry objects appear in the background of almost all self photos taken in a certain area

These souls have been trapped until this recent restoration…
