This site served as the home of Georgia’s governors 1838-1868, then as a boardinghouse ntil 1879 when it was then purchased by Georgia Military and Agricultural College. Ghostly goings-on here include many of the regular type — linens thrown off beds and the smell of cigars. But perhaps more interesting are those thought to be produced by Molly, a former cook. Ghostly smells reported here include baking blueberry muffins, pork and black-eyed peas, all Molly specialties, and one time, the smell of burned potatoes that was so strong the fire department was called, but the source was never found.

  1. My family and I took a guided tour of the old governor’s mansion in Milledgeville. I was one of the first in the group to enter the long room on the left that is roped off and has many tables and chairs. I suddenly saw a ghostly image of a young, cheerful woman come up to me, then go and sit on a bench by the door furthest away from us and cross her legs. When I first saw her I was shocked and when we all left the room I gave a little wave to the chair, although I didn’t see her anyone at that point. Back on the tour bus, the guide told us his daughter had seen a ghost of a young woman in that room. I called him later and told him I saw the ghost, too, but that I was afraid to mention it in front of everyone.

    • When I was a police intern for the university, I observed numerous ghosts on the lawn of the Old Mansion, while watching live camera feeds. They were men, women, and children, dressed in era clothing from the Civil War. I called the detective over, in complete disbelief at what I was witnessing. He called over to the Mansion and confirmed that it was closed and there was no one on the property.
