Warren House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Warren House

The plaster has been stripped down in certain sections of this house to reveal the signatures of men who convalesced here during the Civil War when the house was used as a hospital. People believe that the ghost of a soldier still remains inside the Warren House and claim that at night you can see him standing at the windows.

  1. The whole neighborhood behind it is haunted too. I grew up there. I used to see an old Civil War soldier in the front of my house all the time late at night or really early in the morning when I was in elementary school that scared me so much I went to school through the backyard. (This was when North Jonesboro Elementary on Fifth Avenue was still an elementary school.)

  2. We have visited this house many times, day & night and have several pictures of strange faces in two windows. We also have very clear recordings of voices.. Not the garbled sounds they try to pass off on the ghost shows. We were very lucky to spend some time inside while renovations were going on & spoke to workers who daily had things happen they could not explain. Some of them were so spooked that they would not enter the house alone. I have pictures of the soldier’s signatures on the wall upstairs.

  3. I have some photos taken when the house was up for sale and unoccupied. There are two distinct photos which show clearly a soldier staring back at me from a ground floor window and one staring down from a second story window. I have always felt drawn to the house.

  4. I have lived just down the road all my life and am a civil war reenactor. During the battle of Jonesboro, the federal army stormed the house and murdered all of the convalescing confederates inside. They also set fire to a nearby church burning its congregation alive. My ancestor escaped on the last train to Atlanta. Though I have never seen any ghosts there, I’ve always heard the stories. The brutality of the federal forces may explain the wealth of ghost stories around Jonesboro.

  6. I looked at the picture of the house, that Google is showing, as I was scrolling up at the top to go back and look at other hauntings in Georgia from the site…to only find a face in the upper right hand window. I had to zoom in at almost maximum to clearly see the face. It freaked me at first when i realized it.

  7. My uncle use to live in the there when i was a ten and actually found a set of wedding rings hidden in the mantle to one of the fire places and yes the place was spooky the attic was actually separated out a small room for dead solders and a larger one for live solders.with a hidden stair case to the attic

    I grew up in this house as it was my best friends house in the early 80s I spent several nights at this house and I’m not the type that is scared of a ghost but things go on when the lights are out but what took the cake was I feel like they tried to kill me at one point I was leaving for school no big deal but this morning I was riding a bike well pushed it up to the gate funny striper I’m not really very slot car but I always look two times before I ever get into a roadway I looked twice both ways and then enter the road on the bicycle and hit someone’s car or on the side flipped over the handlebars and landed in the windshield inside the car normally I would say yes I could have made out accident and not love but I know for a fact I love both ways twice there was nothing there the screaming and the hollering of amputation that you hear at night all that is real

    Visited the Warren house 03/01/2017 and while I was on the outside in front of the house I activated my voice memo on my phone. The very first question I asked was “is there anyone here?” and without missing a beat I got a reply from a woman’s voice that answered “Yes”. Keep in mind this was outside on the grounds not inside the residence. This place never disappoints. Also, if you want to hear the EVP please email me and I’ll send it to you. herc33@hotmail.com please subject as EVP.

  10. I grew up in a home on Woodhaven, two streets behind this house. I had always heard stories of The Warren House, but never went there. The house I grew up in was “haunted”. There was a little boy that walked past a window by our back door. Also at night the back door would open and close by itself. We could hear footsteps of a man walking thru the house. The footsteps were of hard soled shoes. My bedroom was the original master bedroom. These footsteps walked all around my bed. When I was home alone I wouldn’t go back to my room unless I absolutely had to because I could hear three different sounds that would stop when I walked back there: 1) the sound of a radio playing, 2) the sound of jingle bells, and 3) the sound of a basket ball being bounced against the house. Also the living room had a small area in it that backed up to the kitchen. Eventually that area was made into a small dining area. But before the change, my mother could hear a baby crying in that part of the living room. I would like to research the property records to see what has been on that property prior to the house that’s there now to see what the connections are.

  11. My mom rented this house in the 1980’s and we lived there for a year. My bedroom was the upper left window if you are looking at the house. I never slept through one single night while there. I always felt a presence, even in the day. There was a hidden narrow staircase behind the wall (in that bedroom) that led up to an attic space behind the fireplace chimney. I found old, old items there under the floor boards. Old button up ladies shoes, a newspaper with an advertisement of a new department store called “Rich’s for your home”. And of wooden ironing board and iron made of iron. etc. Being that I was a teenager and not very interested in the treasures, no telling what else was under those floor boards. I do however, believe it was haunted.

      I am 64 years old. I lived on Woodhaven in the house directly behind the Warren House. My family moved here when I was 3 years old. My best friends lived in that house. Two different families. Both families experienced ghost behaviors. I spent numerous nights there, and daytime too. I experienced numerous ghost behaviors over a period of several years as a young girl thru my teenage years. My siblings had friends with these two families as well. My older sister and I even had a couple of seances with the friends of the second family and quite a few of my older sister’s friends, unbeknownst to our parents. Many fond (and scary) memories of this wonderful old house. The attic and it’s creepiness was destroyed by one of the “renovations” when it was turned into “offices”. Sad sad sad.

  12. My friends & I stayed on chestnut st a year back we used to stay up from like midnight to a.m. just chilling outside reminiscing when one night we seen something near the railroad tracks like as if it was a lonely horseman riding along the side. We all thought we were tripping until his mom came outside to yell at us for ringing a bell which none of us were doing but before we went back inside we all seen the man on the horse ring a bell then disappear. All of Jonesboro is haunted try walking back from keystone apartments pass that old plantation we walked all the way to the back there is a old graveyard.

  13. in the early 1990’s my then husband and I looked at this house since it was listed for sale. As soon as we pulled up I had a feeling about this house. I did not get out because of sudden anxiety and walk around the property but my ex-husband did. While I was sitting in the car waiting for him I looked up and the curtain moved slightly but not before I could see a faint male figure standing there. A few years later I was telling a judge I worked for this same story and he told me I probably saw the ghost of a Civil War soldier. I got goosebumps on my arms. I believe I did see his ghost. I never went back. This town is so haunted. That was not the first time I had a paranormal experience in that town.
