The Sorrel Weed House

The Sorrel Weed House is one of Savannah’s most haunted sites. It’s been featured in numerous haunted tours, books, documentaries, and television shows. The house was built in 1840 by Francis Sorrel (a wealthy shipping merchant) and is open for tours. It is said that Madison Square was constructed over the graves of hundreds of soldiers from the Siege of Savannah in 1779. According to local legend, Francis’s wife Matilda Sorrel found him with a slave named Molly in 1860. Matilda threw herself off the balcony as a result. She was severely injured and was brought back into the house where she later died. A few weeks after this incident, Molly was said to have committed suicide as well. Although there’s no concrete evidence these events took place, it is said that paranormal activity occurs here. The house and its furniture are beautiful, and the basement is dark and spooky, perfect for a ghost story.
