The statue of John Wesley in Reynolds Square was placed there by the Methodists of Georgia in 1969, and it is the area around this statue that folks find mysterious. Why? Well, those who photograph the statue have found that strange hazy patterns and odd colors appear in the pictures. The disturbances, some say, stem from the fact that a nearby building was once a hospital for malaria patients. In the middle of the square, bodies were burned to prevent the spread of the disease. But it is said that some of the cremated bodies were not actually dead, and the tormented souls who burned alive still remain in the area.
