Savannah, GA is home to one of the most haunted places the world, 17Hundred90 Inn & Restaurant Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Following the American Revolution and independence from England, the first free election of a mayor, city council and the formation of a Savannah city government occurred in 1790. Savannah was a small village with a few hundred frame buildings, sandy streets, horses and wagons, and a simple, yet prosperous life. Celebrating that heritage, the 17hundred90 Restaurant and Inn is one of Savannah’s oldest restaurants and Inns offering fine dining and comfortable lodging. The restaurant and Inn are housed in what were originally three separate residences. The western part of the building was built as a duplex between 1821 and 1823 by Steel White; the smaller eastern section was built by the Powers family in 1888. The ground level with its slate floor and soft brick walls are thought to date from a previous structure possibly destroyed in the great Savannah fire of 1820. Original wood shingles are visible in the attic and wooden pegs and wedges holding beams in place can be found throughout the building.
As Savannah's oldest inn and restaurant, it's not surprising that a minimum of four spirits have settled in nicely into this property in their after-live. It's most famous ghost, Anna, is said to have fallen in love with a married seaman in the 1800's, to the extent of throwing herself from the third floor balcony onto the brick courtyard after being tormented by his unrequited love. Her action was timed just as the sails of his ship left her sight down the Savannah River toward the sea. Since then, it is said that Anna haunts the inn, favoring room 204, also a favorite for many curious paranormal enthusiasts. Many of the guests, as well as employees, have told of strange and unearthly events occurring which have been connected to the lonely heart of Anna Powers, who apparently is still waiting for her lover to return. A favorite in haunted city of Savannah, it is also a stop on a haunted pub crawl tour. Please select tag below to see more like this listing!
