Originally built in the 1840s as a cotton warehouse, the place was a makeshift hospital and morgue during the war. Many TV shows have featured this site, where visitors who descended to the basement in the elevator saw an active wartime hospital room. Another ghost reported to reside here is Mrs. Fletcher, wife of the second owner, who wears a pink dress and is seen most often by children.

  1. You can take pictures around the outside of the building at night and get all sorts of orbs. Outside lights flash on and off and small figures can be seen in building on the walls, the guide rope swings on it’s own in back room, Ghost can be seen thur pictures near the wedding gown if it is on display. Take lots of pictures.

  2. I have pics of orbs inside the rooms and a face clearly shown in the fireplace… Also took a pic of the phonebooth that shows blood splattered and dripping down the walls inside it

  3. This picture is for real. I took it when my mom and I were the only ones in the room and in this section of the museum. Zoom in and you will see multiple faces.

  4. I went with a friend two weeks ago and took several photos. I captured countless images open images of faces in mirrors, pictures, glass- reflective surfaces…

  5. In July 2009 my daughter was visiting me from out of State and I took her to see the sights around Marietta. We visited the Kennesaw House and while in the small room on what I think is the Northeast corner of me museum my daughter informed me the building was shaking. She suggested I take my shoes off and feel it. Standing in the room in my socks I could feel a clear shaking of the building. She had picked this up earlier since girls shoes are thinner than men’s shoes. We were in the museum for time after we experienced this and there were not trains coming by. I don’t know what caused the phenomenon that we clearly felt.

  6. Can a team of investigators/explorers come in and investigate for their show? Just a question they are very polite and doesn’t disturb anything.

  7. I went to this museum some years ago for a school trip. When I was looking at a case with spent bullets and medical tool, I took a picture.
    Afterwards, I noted that a man appeared to be standing behind me in the reflection. But I was alone in that room. Looking more at it, I noticed he way have been wearing a Civil War uniform.
