Savannah, GA is home to one of the most haunted eateries in the state, Pirates' House. Come Explore its menu and other offerings with Haunted Journeys.
Savannah’s Famous Pirates’ House is located on one of the most historic spots in Georgia. It is here that Trustee’s Garden, the first public agricultural experimental garden in America, was located. Then around 1753 the site was developed as a residential section. Since Savannah had become a thriving seaport town, one of the first buildings constructed on the former garden site was naturally an inn. The inn became a rendezvous for pirates and visiting sailors. The building remained intact through the centuries, but lost its spark & had fallen into disuse after World War II. The property was acquired by the Savannah Gas Company in 1945 and the dilapidated building was slated for demolition. It was saved by Mrs. Mary Hillyer, Along with some other local ladies, took it upon themselves to restore General Oglethorpe’s vision of Savannah. Mrs. Hillyer saved the building & renovated it into the restaurant it is today.
Shadow people and other ghostly apparitions have been seen walking through the dining rooms of the restaurant. When staff are working all alone in the building they report having the sensation of having someone watching them. On more than one occasion they turned around to see a seaman from long ago standing there. The distinct sound of boots on the plank floors can be heard.
