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

*it was discovered that this mill used to have a basement yet now there are no doors or stairs to get to the basement and the family who has owned the mill since it was established refuse any questions about the basement. rumors say that there was an accident where the lst floor gave out killing 100s of workers and then the owners removed any evidence of there being a basement and closed the mill. These souls have been trapped until this recent restoration…

It’s not hunted it’s i’ll keypad by fleamarket call The Real Deal. The mill has some great history and done need tails tacked on to it. The Bryan’s that started Jefferson Mills were find people that loved their town, community, schools and their employees.

    • ok what about before 1995 ? that is a very old building, and all old building has a past life to them i’m sure ! but I seen all this, and would like to know a little truth since I live closes by this Area !
      this building looks to be in ealrly 1900,s or 1800,s and they are things ,such as evil spirits, and good spirits that can get into old place’s The Bible tells us Evil Spirits is upon the face of the Earth !
      and if evil has got into the building some one better do some good praying To Jesus to get it gone !
