Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House


Cumberland Island, Georgia

A wealthy couple and their friends were in the midst of a huge dinner party when suddenly, the house burst into flames. Everyone managed to escape except the owner of the mansion. After a large funeral service, the victim’s charred remains were laid to rest. The house was abandoned, but a few weeks later, man was seen having another dinner party. As the house burned for a second time, several went to inspect the scene and found the man’s body�again. When investigators went to see if the body was still in the casket, it was gone. Since that time, visitors have reported mysterious sights and sounds at the mansion.

I’ve been to Dungeness, but I’ve heard of no ghosts. There is another ghost on Cumberland Island, it’s a ghost of a young girl who died of disease. Some people took photos of the window she would look out each day, and you can see a faint, ghostly outline in the window on a digital camera.

Cumberland Island is a National Seashore run by the United States Department of Interior. My dad was the Superintendent there for a time back in the 80’s. Yes. Dungeoness burned. No one was killed. Yes. People do live there. The state leases the land to them for 99 years + – some weird formula for youngest family member alive at the time of the lease… Blah blah. If you don’t live there, the only way you can get there legally is via ferry operated by the DOI. There are two trips that leave from the HQ near the St. Mary’s Pavilion. Most of the families out there are related to the Carnegies, Rockefellers, Millers, and others I can’t think of right now. I was married to a Miller and they have a house out there. Actually, I went to the funeral of Mary Miller (my exes Aunt) who was buried out there. Try making a boat trip to the island with a corpse…now that’s creepy!

This place is crawling with ancient tombstones, and slavery/ war memoribilia. While there isn’t much documented activity out there, one visit, and you can feel, that the place is crawling with awesome stories, that never crossed the lips of anyone! Not to mention the architectural designs were phenomininal, and I wish I could see inside of Dungeoness.
