The Marshall House has a rich history in Savannah, Georgia — dating back to the mid-19th century. Originally constructed in 1851, the building served as a luxury hotel. During the American Civil War, the Marshall House was requisitioned by the Union Army as a military hospital in 1864, caring for wounded soldiers. After the war, the Marshall House continued to operate as a hotel, hosting prominent guests like General William T. Sherman.
The Marshall House was restored as a historic hotel in the 1990s.
The Marshall House is known for its haunted history and has been a subject of various paranormal investigations and legends. Guests and staff have reported numerous ghostly encounters, including strange noises, disembodied voices, and objects moving on their own.
One of the most famous ghostly residents is said to be a former nurse named Mary, who cared for wounded soldiers during the Civil War when the building served as a hospital. Guests have reported encountering her spirit in old-fashioned attire and have described hearing her footsteps or feeling a presence in their rooms.
There are also reports of a male spirit believed to be a soldier who met an unfortunate end at the hotel.
