Real Haunted House

Harville House

Statesboro, Georgia

Two old ladies once resided in this house, but when they died, no one noticed, and all their possessions remained. Today, a blue light can be seen in a window at night, and brave persons who have ventured inside have reported seeing the two women rocking in their chairs.

What is the address?

Justin says:

September 22, 2005, 12:07 am

theres not really an address, its old and abbandoned(SP). Unless you are really really looking hard you wont be able to see it. I went about a year ago. We drove down the road (Harville Rd.) a couple of times at about 3AM before giving up. We then decided to goto Waffle house. While eating there we asked the lady that worked there where the harville house is and she, Honest to god, told us the exact mileage and everything of how to get there. I would just ask her how to get there. once you do get there you have to walk around to the rightside of the house towards the back there is an entrance its a small deck area that is falling apart you have to climb up in there. you will be in the living room at this point. if you goto the room to the right that is the kitchen. there are 2 ways to get into the kitchen one way has a door the other way is just an opening. first i walked to the door and went to open it…before i could touch the doorknob it opened slightly and then closed again. i wanst sure if my eyes were playing tricks with me or not so i called my brother over to be an eye-witness. it didnt work the first time but i tryed again and it worked. so we called his friend to video tape it and it worked again. when my brothers friend tried it never worked, but when my brother tried it worked. another incounted we had was upstairs there are a couple of bedrooms up there we walked around for a little while and nothing happened. As we started to walk down the stairs my brother was holding the camera and he was in the back. out of nowhere he gose running down the stairs. me and his friend were like what happened and he said he heard someone behind him blow a deep breath in his ear. when we replayed the video you could clearly hear it. it could not have been anyone else because there were 3 of us and in the video you can see 2 of us in front. i was just visiting my brother that goes to coollege down there. A few weeks later my brother and a few of his friends went again. they said nothing really happened but as they were leaving my brother was the last to jump out (you have to jump off the porch thats like 3ft high) he said he heard a childs voice that said “Eric come back”. and again there was no one behind him. my brother kinda thought it was just his immagination but later they replayed it and slowed it down and you could hear it very clear.

The house is actually pretty cool. There wasn’t really anything spooky about it, just a really old house.

Justin says:

September 27, 2005, 3:28 pm

its pretty scary actually..but your right, it is a really cool house. My brother and his roommate went to the georgia southern library and actually found some info on the house in the local section. he said they found a picture of when it was first built and it was the family that owned it and the slaves were standing behind them.

Justin says:

October 5, 2005, 8:07 am

im actualy visiting my brother, at GA southern, oct. 6-9. I will get all that info and post it soon. sorry im not too familiar with the area, im from north ga.

I want ot see this house. Where is it?

Lindsey says:

October 16, 2005, 2:42 pm

Hey, i’ll be down at Ga. Southern Oct. 21st, 22nd, and 23rd and my friends and i were wanting to go! Where is it at?

Eric says:

October 17, 2005, 5:32 am

Okay, the House is on Harville Road (strange, huh?). The easiest way to get to Harville Road from Georgia Southern is to get on Fair Road and go in the direction towards the fair grounds. Once you cross over the 301 bypass, you will need to take a right at the first stop light. You will now be on Harville Road. Now, I can only describe the rest of the way by telling you that it is about ten miles (give or take) to the house from the time you get onto Harville Road. The house will be on the left, however it is hard to see at night because trees completely cover the front yard. Directly across the street from the house is a dirt road, but I can’t remember what it is called. There is a one story house directly beside the Harville House (this is helpful because there aren’t too many houses out there). From this, you should be able to find it. If you do, be careful because like my brother Justin said, it is very old and it can be pretty dangerous getting into the only entrance. By the way, if you are interested in visiting the Harville family cemetary, it is about a quarter to a half mile down on the dirt road that is across the street. It will bee on the right, there will be a sign that says “Harville Cemetary” or something like that. Anyways you have toget out and walk a minute or two past the sign and you’ll come across the graves, there are about twelve or so. Good luck finding it.

One of my friends went a few days ago. they told me that this house was hauted. I didn’t really believe them at first until they started telling me the story about what happened. my friends girlfriend went in the harville house a while back and wanted my 2 friends to go. she took them out there. and they had to climb in a window that was about 5 or 6 feet off the ground. they climbed into the window and the first thing they heard was a door slam. they walked through the house and heard a dog growl. (they were videoing typing it). so they both jumped outta the window and when they got back to the car they were freaked out but they still wanted to go to the harville family cemetary.they layed on top of the graves and closed their eyes and when they got back in the car they had blood on all of the windows. they thought someone was just playing a trick of them…and they knew no one would ever believe them if they told them the story so they took a picture on my friends camera phone. when the picture came out…there was a little man’s face on the picture.

I’m about to go to this house in a couple of days….just to find out for myself. I will update in a few days how everything went.

Justin says:

October 27, 2005, 6:21 pm

wow thats crazy. i would really like to see that picture. is it on a webpage or anything like that?

shts says:

October 30, 2005, 8:45 pm

I can say first hand that this house is not haunted in any way. I went there just a couple of days ago and got prosecuted for tresspassing. It was so humiliating. You do not want to go to this house!!!!!! The family that owns this place has had enough of people going in there year after year. The sheriffs dept. sends a deputy by there on a regular basis now. My advice is to spend three bucks and go to the haunted houses in town.

Justin says:

October 31, 2005, 1:05 am

Wow you got owned…that sucks but im gonna stick with my side of the story, I really think its huanted. I also think its kinda sad that cops go out to check on some old abandoned house insted of looking for drunk drivers or something like that. You would think they could find something usefull to do with the time they are getting paid for.

shts says:

October 31, 2005, 9:48 am

they (deputies) get paid for getting tresspassers too. I found out that old abandoned house has been in there family for well over a hundred years. Theres nothing special about it and no one ever died there! There just tired of punk *** college kids goin in there and destroying whats left of it. Take your chances if you want to buddy. But a night at the sherriffs dept is no way to spend your halloween.

Justin says:

November 1, 2005, 5:34 am

I think your telling a fib…heres why. First you said this happened a few days ago. then last night (halloween) you said halloween night was spent at the sherriffs dept. you cant use the computer in jail. I think your full of ****.

shts says:

November 4, 2005, 5:00 pm

No… this happened before halloween. I said you do not want to spend your night in jail on halloween if you get caught there.

Neo says:

November 9, 2005, 12:44 pm

My Friend went in the house and he saw tow old women kissing…then they gat naked and had sex…WOW!!!

paul says:

December 19, 2005, 7:26 pm

me and some friends have actually been in the house and we didnt see or hear anything but im thinking of carrying my video camera and go back by myself and see if i can see anything it would be so cool to finally see something.about the house if someone remodeled it it would be a very beautiful house.

ELD says:

December 22, 2005, 11:47 pm

Ok I live in Statesboro, GA and have been to the Harville house multiple times because my best friend is a Harville and lives right next to it (her parents own it). The Harville house is NOT haunted. It just looks like it is because it’s so run down looking. All of this haunted sstuff is in people’s heads when they go out there so they do think it’s haunted. Just like Ghost Road (also in Statesboro) And I think it is really pathetic when people go in there and vandalize it and steal things. And about the last comment, it is way past remodeleding. But yes it would be pretty.

I am a news reporter with the Statesboro Herqld, and have lived in Bulloch County most of my life. I am familiar with the haunting stories, and know the Harvilles.
The last time I wrote something about the house, all in fun, near Halloween, the family contacted me and asked that I stop. Why?
Because people have vandalized the house, trespass, steal, and make nuisances of themselves, especially at Halloween.
If you would just drive past and look, that’s one thing. We all enjoy being scared, and the house is truly fascinating. Its history is vivid, and there are documented stories of the first owner, Samuel Harville, chasing a “wild man” with his slaves and hunting dogs.
But the hauntings … the family claims the stories are untrue. And they ask people to please stay out of the Harville House. The unique house would have been awesome had it been restored, but the family was financially unable to undertake such a task, and now it is too late.

If you MUST be scared on Halloween in Statesboro, go to the Beaver House Restaurant. Clay Beaver will welcome you, and that house is truly haunted. I was there the night a psychic/sensitive from New York came … and we have photographs showing a small girl – Annie, who is one of the houses’ ghosts. The article I wrote can be researched in our archives.

BY the way – the food is awesome as well!

megan says:

i also live in georgia i’ve lived in a haunted house before so thats why i love supernatural so much

Heather says:

January 17, 2006, 10:49 pm

um, if the two women were in the house in their chairs rocking, they probably werent dead. haunted houses are all in the mind and th story of the history behind the house. as a realestate agent, i have found that dead people dont sell houses, there is a list of things a person must fill out about a house when placing it on the market. a questionaire sort of. well one of the questions on the form is “has anyone been deceased in this home?” and if the answer is yes, a death certificate must be submitted. there is nothing on record about his house. other than the woman who bought it in 1918. She died in an old folks home on main street.

Sam says:

January 21, 2006, 6:13 pm

i have lived in bulloch county most of my life and have never been in the house. but my dad has in 1994. he says its not haunted and i believe him. all you colloge students better stop bc those cops aint kiddin. its just a shame to see it go. and i don’t blame the family for not sdellin it. back then families were not into splittig up sisters best friend is a harville but do not have anything to do with the house. peoplr are always comin up to them and askin them about the house. if you ask me i dont think its haunted. theres not enuf evidence. please just leave the family alone. they just want their privacy. its fallin down now and its dangerous. and if you get caught they could be responsible. theres not much left of it now. the most you could is to just ride by and look at the beautiful architecture. i still admire it even though i drive by it every day to and from school.

i am a college student in statesboro and i think that this type of stuff is too cool. if you guys really want to see something creepy you need to go to the packing house that place is too cool. just drive by though because the guy that owns it has shot at one of my friends. Country folk don’t play. by the way where is ghost road?

Miranda says:

February 4, 2006, 4:25 am

P.S. to the ones who laid on the graves what the @#$% is wrong with you. That is so disrespectful to do that to a grave. You are lucky you didn’t piss anything off more than you did. Bad Bad Bad bad BAD!!

Justin says:

February 8, 2006, 9:25 pm

All you people talking about others vandalizing the house and stealing things, are crazy. We went there atleast 3 times and not once did we steal or vandalize anything. Besides it would be pointless to steal the things that are in there unless your in desperate need of a broken mattress and a rocking chair that is way out dated.

fakename says:

February 21, 2006, 12:06 pm

YOU WONT BELIEVE THIS…yet, you must….I went there this past thursday night, it was dark and creepy. My friends Meshack and Abu Saeed dared me to go in first. I didnt see anything so I told them the coast was clear. 6 and one-third minutes later, we were all upstairs. That is when we heard strange moaning noises and what sounded like chains. We slowly walked to the door at the end of the hallway and when we opened it, we saw the 2 old ghost ladies having sex. Yeah! Totally! They were using strap on’s and just going at it olympic softball player style. Pounding, I mean pounding on each other. Damn! Then, the next day Abu Saeed got deported back to Iran. End of story.

Sandi says:

March 1, 2006, 10:26 am

Does anyone have actual pictures of this place? I mean I have read all the comments posted and everyone talking about pictures, but how come none of them are posted…..well if you got some, email @ thanx!!

To get to Ghost Road, you have to take Hwy 80 East from Statesboro to Brooklet (about 9 miles from the Mall). Most of the way thru Brooklet (past the second traffic light) a dirt road veers off to the left. The building in front of if used to be Jones Hardware or Jones Building Supply (not sure if that is still the name). The tricky part is knowing how far to go down the dirt road. When you see a highway again, turn around. As you drive slowyly back towards Brooklet, you can sometimes see the lantern of the railroad guy that was killed by a train near the road, reflecting in your rear-view mirror. Of course you have to go at night. The effect is not all that scary and pretty easy to figure out, but it does give you 20 minutes or so each way to tell ghost stories.

non ya says:

April 5, 2006, 8:21 pm

well acually the story goes that a man and his family live in that house 7 kids and him and his wife. that is until he killed all 8 of them with an ax. chopped them up like they were nothing. there is a harville family cemetary out there just past the house down a dirt road that on a huge gravestone reads HIS CHILDREN in big letters and thier names underneath it. but i dont reccomend going out there because we were chased away by a man in a black truck and he was so scary.. i felt like i was about to be part of the second texas chainsaw massacure

I live in madison meadows right next to the packinghouse factory i want to go in there and i am. anybody have pictures of the harville house.


Crysy says:

May 24, 2006, 2:09 pm

I lived in Statesboro or Brooklet for the most of the past 10 years, from the time I was 12 until this past January. (I am now 22.) And a few years ago when it snowed I went out there one evening when the ice and all was clearing. Me, my mom and stepdad, who has lived there since he was a kid were riding around one evening and he stopped out in front of it. It was wierd because I figured he was just slowing down to turn and I got this bad feeling and chills even though it was pretty hot in the truck. Then he told us about the house and that he had gone in as a teenager. But when I got the feeling I had no clue about the place. And for those who keep saying this is all in you head, I didn’t believe until this past November, when I was staying with my then boyfriend right next to the old packing house. Most people don’t kknow about the white house on the property that his family was renting but I saw alot while living there. Enough to change my mind about things.

Big Bill says:

June 7, 2006, 2:28 am


And just what kind of ‘things’ did you change your mind about? You got are attention. Why don’t you finish your story?

Snake says:

June 22, 2006, 10:47 am

Someone on this site said they went into that house and got busted for tresspassing. You should wait until midnight, put on a tight, jet-black suit, and bring some night vision goggles, a flashlight, and some rice crispy treats. Try to sneak in unnoticed.

Timmy says:

June 23, 2006, 5:35 pm

wait, so some ladies are rocking in a chair and then you have a car with blood? this sounds so compelling. i’m really tempted to drive down there, trespass, and break into a dangerous old house so my mind can play tricks on me! Yay! what fun! whaddaya say boys? rack ’em up! We’re heading for georgia!

Tidus says:

June 26, 2006, 4:52 am

I just read all of these comments and I was wondering about the house. I live back in Snellville Georgia. Does anyone know how far away that would be from the house area. I’d like to just drive by sometime and see it. I really have no desire to go inside.

Snake says:

June 27, 2006, 10:26 am

I don’t get it. Some people say they’ve visited houses that are supposed to be haunted and saw nothing, while others say they visited them and saw ghosts, heard noises, or were even attacked by ghosts. So are ghosts real or not? SOMEONE IS TELLING LIES!!!

No name says:

July 8, 2006, 11:40 pm

Ghost are so not real!! Everybody needs to grow up and get a life!!!

janie says:

July 12, 2006, 5:49 am

i went there i saw it. it was scary dude it was like woooooooowwwwwwww! i saw that one of the woman was sitiing and knitting the other was staring at a paintiin of a handsom man on the wall.

Ashley says:

July 25, 2006, 1:38 pm

Ghosts are real. The reason some people can see them and some can’t is simple. some people are more tapped into their pyschic abilities than others. Also if a ghost wants you to know it’s there than you will, if it doesn’t then you won’t.

Friend of Harvilles says:

September 6, 2006, 6:51 am

I live about ten minutes away from the Harville house. The first time I saw it, driving down Harville Rd. with my husband who knows a Harville family member, I was heartbroken that such a beautiful piece of history was in such sad shape! I finally stopped recently to speak with the owner, who doesn’t mind people stopping and asking permission to walk along the OUTSIDE and get a closer look of the architecture. He was more than happy to tell us the history of the house and we spoke for almost an hour about it and about him building the house he lives in which is right next door. His grandfather built the house in 1892, it was single story, then in 1902 a second story was added. His aunt inherited the house but became ill and her sister came to live and take care of her. The visiting sister then passed away and the other sister had to be placed in a nursing home where she died some years later. What furniture that was not taken by family was stolen, along with architectural pieces, by people trespassing and vandals. The side of the house that is falling in was done by college students who decided it would be fun to destroy instead of admire. I would not recommend entering the house as it could be very dangerous to do so but to ride by and have a look instead. You will not see any ghosts, as there are no such thing. For those of you who believe in God the Bible says to be “absent from the body is to be with the Lord (or in another place)” and for those who do not believe in God there is no after life in your eyes so how can you justify ghosts? Are there things that go bump in the night? Yes I believe there are but human souls or spirits they aren’t. But this house is NOT haunted. I am going this morning, as it got dark before our conversation ended last night, to take some pictures. It will make for some interesting photos since there is a thick layer of fog encompassing our area at present. One last note. PLEASE people who are posting here…..use proper grammar and spelling! Man it is sad to read some of these posts!

Friend of Harvilles says:

September 8, 2006, 6:43 am

I went back but sadly there was no fog left or it would have made for some great pics! I snapped a few. There is no longer a way to get into the house as the entry described in an earlier post is now collapsed. I snapped a few pictures but they aren’t the best in the world since I was fighting for ownership of my blood against an army of Georgia mosquitos. You can take a look at the pictures by going to photobucket and enter “harville” into the search. Now you can at least see what is looks like. It is still unhaunted by the way!

bridget says:

September 8, 2006, 3:06 pm

why arent there any pictures of these houses? some one should get some….

nick says:

September 9, 2006, 9:29 pm

i would like to see the house and see the old ladies corking in there chiers

nada says:

September 12, 2006, 11:11 pm

I am also from Snellville and I go to school at GA Southern in Statesboro. It is about a 4 hour drive…so umm…unless you have another reason to be in the boro I wouldn’t recommend driving to this house for kicks.

ashamed says:

September 17, 2006, 5:21 pm

I am a Harville and I appreciate those of you who are against all of the vandilism and trespassing. The Harville house is a special part of my family and it hurts me to see it in such bad shape. Those of you who think that it’s fun to destroy a part of someones family history, SHAME on you! It also makes me very mad that you would spred rumors about my family members, and play around on the graves of my loved ones. It makes me sick just to think about how disrespectfull people can be. Y’all need to grow up get a life and start respecting other people. It might be fun and games to you. But when you get caught there WILL be consequenses!!

Jackie says:

October 1, 2006, 10:40 pm

This house isn’t very scary, but it is old and after i heard this story i do not thinkI want to go there!

Cynthia says:

October 2, 2006, 6:58 am

I think it is sad that some people destroy other people’s property and failed to ask someone for permission before entering the home. I am sure if permission had been sought from the get go things might be different. Has the family thought about getting local assistence or with the historical society on rebuilding the home to scale? This might be a thought. Sometimes past repair isn’t true.

Kyle says:

October 5, 2006, 1:59 pm

I also agree that this senseless vandalism and disrespect is shameful and unnecessary. I’m a student at GSU with a strong interest in architecture and history, and am very fascinated by the design and build of this beautiful home. If any members of the Harville family are reading this, would it be okay if I, after permission, went inside and took some pictures? Obviously I take full responsibility if I am injured or anything, and am very responsible so this shouldn’t be a problem. I have a friend who has a home on the Georgia historical register and can actually get some information for you in regards to placing this home on it, not sure if that’s possible, but I can inquire. Thanks!

brandon says:

October 5, 2006, 9:39 pm

been to it. been in it. saw nothing. it is a gorgeous home. aside from that, the only good part was the scur’d purdy young lady wrapped around me. good times. have fun kyle? :-)

nicky says:

October 10, 2006, 3:16 am

once drove by the place
saw the blue light in the window – it flickered

at that time this ringing inmy ears began and it has never stopped.

Kyle says:

October 14, 2006, 6:05 pm

Blue light huh? I looked at the outside at night, and went in during the daytime. The only things creepy and scary were the wasp nests on the outside and floor that almost fell through. There’s really not much to it.

David Harville says:

October 15, 2006, 10:22 pm

Look my family owns the harville house and it is not haunted. We are getting very sick of people showing up. If you get caught here we will shoot any trespassers!

Rob says:

October 17, 2006, 11:09 am

You tell em David! It’s just an old house that’s falling down. You would be a complete idiot to go inside this house. There are signs posted so just take your pics and leave.

Dear VINSON22,
This is the Real David Harville and I am commenting for the first time. Who’s the mother ****** who says I’m a puddle on the bed spread? Sorry you had to find the sheets like that in your mother’s bed. Ask her about our incident. You must know me and where I live so what’s up. What’s your name and where are you at?If you are feeling froggy, then JUMP!

James says:

November 5, 2006, 11:50 pm

I am amazed by some of the things I’ve seen here on this website. Instead of keeping with the theme at hand it’s been turned into a blog for threats and old lady strap on humor. I live in the statesboro area and work in mental health for the last few years. You do not have to be crazy to believe in hauntings. You do not have to be psychic to see ghosts. But you have to be stupid to type some of the ignorant stuff that is on this website! If the house is haunted, then repect it for whatever reason has caused it to be. If it is not haunted then respect it as private property and part of a family’s history. I heard about the Harville House tonight from my fiance. We were talking about strange occurrences when she told me about her incident at the Harville House. A few years ago, she and four of her highschool friends from Southeast went there. She and one friend went upstairs. There were mirrors there. While looking in the mirror, they saw a little girl with one tattered ribbon and one tied ribbon in her hair. When they turned around they saw nothing. When they looked back in the mirror they saw the little girl shuffle her way to a piece of broken glass on the floor. When she turned away from the mirror, she saw the piece of glass suspended in air. At this point they heard a scream downstairs from one of the other friends. As soon as they moved to run downstairs the piece of glass flew and shattered against the wall right where her friend was just standing. When they got downstairs, their other friend had been stabbed in the leg with his knife. They freaked out and went out to their car which would would not crank, but the lights were flashing and the stereo was blaring. They pushed it down the road. Once they left the property the car crank and they took their friend to the emergency room.
Of course I believe my fiance. I know Holli has to make a living too, so cut her some slack. Just comment on what is believed to be true and not posting some **** that you think is funny. Oh yeah, it ticks me off to know that the school that I graduated from with a bachelors and two masters degrees has somehow managed to allow such idiots into its hallways who cannot even spell “COLLEGE!!!”

Hi !
A Swede whos intrested in ghosts have follow this silly thread :).

I wonder If somebody does NOT se a ghost while there, ist that a proof for the place not being haunted?
Everybody does not se ghosts and ghosts does not appear on demand.

Then its pretty obv. that the pp close to the family deny the fact cause they want the place to be left alone.

I am the Organizer of a Paranormal Investigation Group based out of Savannah named SPIRIT (Savannah Paranormal Indepedent Research and Investigation Team). I live in Statesboro and while researching haunted homes in the area, myself and another asst. organizer found this site. I must say that some of you are definitely gutsy! Some of the places we’ve went haven’t been the greatest idea (try climbing through a tunnel to get into the Old Savannah Jail. Creepy stuff!) and we could’ve gotten in trouble if caught, but to go into a home that you’re clearly not welcomed into, that’s wrong. The family who owns this house have asked Holli not to write about it because of the people who come to the home, they’ve came to this site and politely asked for people not to go into it; I mean seriously, what more do they need to do?

There’s a family who owns this home and they’re not only trying to preserve it, they’re trying to protect you from harm and themselves from a lawsuit! I went and looked at the pictures on Photobucket and WOW! Talk about a condemned house! The thing is falling apart!

I agree with whomever mentioned earlier to walk outside and admire the beauty of the house. We plan on visiting the OUTSIDE of the house but ONLY with permission from the family, and taking some pictures. If the house is haunted then great, but atleast respect the living enough to help preserve what they have, rather than trashing it. Even if you take nothing and break nothing, your weight alone will clearly cause the house damage at this point.

“ghosts” are not real… the devil is… and your mind is.. your mind plays more tricks on you than you could imagian.. and if your weak minded.. stupid.. or weak in religion.. then you’ll allow the devil to play tricks..most people on here are annoying.. and stupid… its a ******* house.. enjoy the visit, when you hear a noise… remember the house is old as hell. and run down.. your GOING TO HEAR SOMETHING… as far as seeing things.. ur a idiot.. or weak…

thats the truth.. everyone needs to stop wondering.. if you want to really get scared… just ask the devil to show himself while in the house.. (unbelivers that is) and im sure he will.. YAY for you.. TRUTH = this.

Okay so a house that is “haunted” or not should not be let go to the point it is in. I understand the Harvilles may not have had the money to fix the place up they could have donated the house and the land to a local historical society…(BTW Do we have any of those around here in Statesboro) But enough about that…

GHOST ROAD!! I wanna hear everyone’s take on the ghost road thing. HMMMM makes me wonder…

Also some people on here need to GROW UP!!!

I went to photobucket and saw the pictures of this house. What a shame that such a wonderful house from heart of dixie has been left to decay and rot. Yes it looks scary but I am more upset that the citizens of Bulloch County have not stood up to have this house remodeled and opened as a museum or something. It is a shame to see a part of American History rotting away. The family should send pictures to the Historical Preservation Society and I bet the government would give them a grant to restore it. Then they could open it up as a bed and breakfast. The ghost story lovers would love having the opportunity of spending the night in a very historical supposedly haunted, house. The Harvilles instead of dealing with the vandalism could have a very successful business sharing the history of their family. Tsk Tsk to anyone who disrespects this family!!

Well I went to GA Southern a while back and I have to say I have never heard of this house. However I did go to Ghost Road. I can not remember the name of the road but you drive down the road until you get to a street light. We all got out of our car and looked down to the light. In the shadow of the light you see a man walking back and forth. Then he stops and bend over and stands up, again and agian. You see he has a shovel in his hands. He is digging!! The story goes that the road is on an old railroad track and he is burying people who have died.

Just a thought but obviously this house intrigues many people weather they believe it to be haunted or not…and I understand the Harvilles cant financially do anything with the house like sell it or afford to re-store the house………and I understand that you can get arrested for trespassing the house….so why dont the Harvilles make some money out of the damned place!!
Serious..charge people to come and look around the house, do a tourguide maybe going round the house and finnishing at the graveyard…people will obviously pay 5 dollars or whatever, to see it for ghost you could do night time viewings and for the architechture of the house itself do daytime veiwings!

June 12, 2007, 2:13 am

I am a Harville and I am proud of our history and heritage. I am outraged by some of these comments, so I want to clear a few things up. THE HOUSE IS NOT HAUNTED! There are no ghost, and there aren’t any lights. The lights that you might have seen were our flash lights looking at you. I would greatly appreciate it if yall would stop all of the nonsence and trespassing. I am getting sick and tired of being woken up in the middle of the night by people screaming or the sound of trucks in the yard or people breaking windows to try and get into the house. During Halloween and friday the 13 I get no sleep because yall think that it is fun to trespass on to someone elses property and vandalize a part of their history. For those of you who think that we have done nothing to try and preserve the house you are wrong. The house wouldn’t be in as bad of shape if it weren’t for the trespassing and vandalizm. We have had people break windows, steal, and even push over colums. We have had people arrested and will continue to until this STOPS! I also don’t understand how someone can desrespect the graves of someone elses loved ones. It’s just wrong, and it hurts the family to know that such a thing has happened. If you want to see the house we would be more than willing to let you walk around and see it if you would just stop by and ask permission, thats all you have to do. The trespassing and vandalism HAS TO STOP. It hurts me to know that such a huge part of my family’s history and heritage is a victim of such nonsence. So PLEASE STOP!

I went to this house TODAY. (10/11/07) It is absolutely beautiful. I do not believe all the above stories of “ghosts and happenings”. I’m sure anything is possible, but I did not get one odd feeling from this place at all. I went to the owner’s house next door to ask permission first before taking pictures. They were very nice and had no problem letting me go on the property. I live in Statesboro and had never heard of this house before. I decided to check it out, however I did NOT go to the cemetary. Some things should remain sacred, and are not meant for entertainment purposes. I’ve always been interested in old, abandoned houses/buildings and this one is magnificent. It should be viewed and admired for the mere quality of work that went into it. I will be posting my pictures to Photobucket tonight. Look up user flionhi, and click the link to view my album. Even though I have no ties to this family, and no authority whatsoever … I ask that whoever visits this house, whenever they might – do so with no intentions of trying to get in or do harm to the home. It is in bad condition already but it is not fair for the many of us who simply want to see it for its true beauty, to be held accountable for those who wish to trash the place or go “ghost hunting.”

Shelli says:

October 12, 2007, 10:21 am

Okay, I actually wound up posting my pics on Flickr instead. So, go to and do a search for flionhi. It will tell you there are no photos by that name, then above the search box click on People and it will give you the link to my page. Please feel free to leave a comment or two.

I went to the Harville House years ago with my ex-fiance. It was just an old house. The story that I heard was a little different. I heard that the Harville’s were would have all these traveling salesman come to the house and the salesman were never seen again. Folks say those salesman are buried in the Harville basement. Of course when I went there we could not find the basement. Going to the Harville Cemetary is a little spooky but I think all cemetary’s are spooky. However after we left the Harville House …we went to Ghost Road in the boro. Now that was scary and I really did see something there…. Gail

Ok, so last night a couple of friends and I decided to go around to the haunted areas of Statesboro. We went to the Harville House, or so we thought. When reading these comments I get the feeling that we got the wrong house. Does anyone have pictures that I could possibly see to make sure it was the right house? We also went to the packing house and got great pictures of orbs and shadows coming out of the windows, it was awesome!

Brooks Edenfield says:

November 14, 2007, 9:53 pm

This is Brooks Edenfield. I’m apart of the family that owns ROBERTSON RD (Ghost Road) and the land that surrounds it. First of all, that is not ghost road. All ya’ll say ya’ll have lived here for 10 years or so… well… i’ve lived here for 18 and i know more about it than anybody else around here. Robertson road was named after my grandpa… Claude Robertson Sr, which is on my mom’s side. Let me break it down for all the D*** A*** out there… thats why my last name is different… my mom’s side. The Railroad Bed has always been called Ghost Road… NOT Robertson Rd. We also own some land on the Railroad Bed too. We have caught trespassers down there before and threw their A** in jail. So i suggest if your going down there to screw around… your getting into some trouble. People around here don’t mind people riding down there… but when you get out of your car like someone on up there said… that’s trespassing. and the street light…? well that’s where our pond is with a small creek on the opposite side of the road. Our hunting club is there too, which explains the Dog pens right beside our pond. The S*** ain’t funny when you go down there trespassing and S***, but what is funny is when we catch you. haha don’t believe me?? i live right across highway 80 (across from robertson road). Let me or one of my family members catch ya’ll down there and i’ll show you something F’n scary.

on halloween night you can go to the house and see 2 young models having sex and then they will seduce you as well. I married one once and she took me to the other side were i met tupac and he was just finishing a duet with elvis. But unfortunately the marriage did not work so we got divorced and i have not been back. Also you can stand over mozarts grave and hear him decomposing. Later gator!

J. Harville says:

May 13, 2008, 9:26 am

I am a Harville. I’ve been reading some of your comments on our house. Some of them are strangely accurate and others are rather insulting. I didn’t want to get involved in any of this but I think the truth needs to come out. Truth is, there are things that happened in our house that have haunted me for years. I wish I could go into detail but out of what respect I have for my family I will not. I will say that I have dealt with hauntings in our house for years and am still dealing with them now. The light upstairs was mentioned and it is true. We wrote off this activity as a random power surge but even when there was no power the light appeared. I have seen the source of the light several times myself and it is hard to explain. It appears as a thick rushing mist all at once and it’s bone chilling and when things feel wrong a light emerges from nowhere and it is so bright. Two times all electrical devices I had in posession died. They eventually turned back on but with little battery power. I never actually stuck around to see what it did. It seemed to stay fixed and elevated about chest height in the center of the room. I wish I knew why it happened so that I could sleep normally at night. We always heard doors close from what whe thought was wind channeling through vents and hallways pressurizing certain areas and closing them but when they latch and open repeatedly by themselves while the door knobs rattle and turn, that’s not wind. The door to the master cracked at the hinges while closed. 5 of us were huddled together too scared to move waiting for something to come out and I almost wish it did. I have only seen one womam in the house and she was as vivid as if she were real. My sister and mother also have seen her in the same place as I, wearing the same ragged outfit rushing around the corner to the far corner of the house. She never made a noise but we could see her yelling. I never told them of my encounter until they told me the same story. I was to make sure they were not lying. There is a well behind the house and for a month, sometimes almost nightly we were awaken to echoing yells and moans of several different voices. Both sounded like children. These are the voices that still haunt me. Everything else was really not that bad. I was very young when these events took place and they were shared by almost all of us. After that horrid month, things calmed and things went back to normal until the summer. Deep voices rattled the walls only during sleep. Nearly everyone in the house was startled out of bed only to hear nothing else. The house was always cold when this happened. Sometimes the walls would sweat and fog appeared from our breaths. The cold would dissappear as soon as it came. The deep apparent male voices would get so loud noone could come out of their beds in fear of the worst of things. Even when it would cease, we would talk from room to room. At one point mother seemed like someone else when she woke up and she said things that she would have never said before. We never questioned her because it seemed as if she were someone else and we didn’t know what they would do or say. We knew she wasn’t herself. She laid in bed sick for 6 days sick after that moment. For 6 days, she couldn’t remember anything that happened the day she had changed. Just that day. From the time she woke till she laid in bed. That day was erased from her memory as if she never lived it. I don’t think she did. On the third day of bed rest she awoke to find numerous yellow tablet pages with the names of people we didn’t know and the word relieve mentioned over and over again. But oddly enough, she swore she remembered doing it. I don’t believe it. She was sleeping and she didn’t want to frighten us. I will live with these things for my whole life. Everyone will. No one needs to go in our house. No one. I have been back several times, in the light hours, and it appears beaten and hurt. It appears now as it felt then. I wish for no one to see what we’ve seen and someone will end up getting hurt. These are not games and I will have the Sherriff keep an eye on the place. Just realize that things unexplained do happen and it’s not in everyone’s best interest to go looking for proof of it. A lot of things didn’t seem friendly in the house and they never will be. It seemed somewhat peaceful the days that I’ve returned and I can only dream that these “things” died with the house. Please do not bother the cemetary, our family has done no harm and we never will. Do not disrespect our burial grounds. I would never do the same to you in a million years for no reason. God bless everyone of you in this old place I once called home and may God bless the spirits of that house. I hope they have raised their last voices and made their final appearances. As for the light, the only activity I’ve really heard that still exists, may it be the reminants of the house’s soul growing weak. May it pass more peaceful than the others.

My Grandmother said she knew the Harville ladies. It was just two sisters that lived in the house together, because their husbands had both passed. When the college was built rumors started circulating that these old widows buried there money in and around the house. College punks raided the land and found nothing. Digging up the grounds and still nothing appeared. The college kids got aggrivated and invaded the house looking for the money. Evidently they scared the little old ladied to death so they lcoked themselves in the closet, and died of fright. The light is true. I’ve been to this house on many occasions, because I find it fascinating. I have pictures of the lights, but I advise you not to step foot in the house. It’s comdimed, and I’m surpirsed it hasnt fallen to the ground years ago.

August 25, 2008, 5:22 pm

It’s not that hard to find at all. I’ve never been inside but that place is sooo creepy looking. It’s next to my teacher’s house and she owns it. I think it was her grandma or something, but I wouldn’t recommend going there because she will call the cops on you.

Another place to go (you still risk getting arrested) is the packing house on packing house rd. 400 people burned to death in it. My friend told me there is one room that you can not penetrate with light! It’s falling apart though haha.

ok to all of you people going in this house yall need to be shot!! and i hope those people do see yall and shoot you!! at first i thought that this story was great!! until i read wht the owners had to say… YALL ARE SO PATHETIC!!! how could people trespass onto someone elses property and harm this historic house more than it already is?? and to the racist girl who is posting things about white people u need ur *** kicked!! how can u say that WE dont owe yall &*#@!! was we the one that did that to yall?? hmmm?? UHHH NO!! the last time i checked i was born in 1991 not the 1800`s and y r u fussin any way it aint happenin now is it? exactly my point!! i get along with everyone and im sure that all of our ancestors would be so ashamed to know that racism is still strongly in effect today!! its pitiful!! yall have everything handed to yall and yall still aint happy!!
but seriously, im a strong believer in god, and the dummy who said that im goin to hell for believing in something that could possibly happen, SHUTUP!!! u dont know anything!!! but i do believe that when people die and their death isnt justified that their spirit roams the earth waiting to be justified so that their bodies can be at peace finally.
and to yall idiots that are talking about those women having sex…. GROW THE $#@* UP!!! ur embarrassing urselvels
so why dont yall do yourselves a favor and leave those people alone!! thats their history and yall dont need to be tellin them what to do with their property if they want to sell it, thats their business not any of yours!!
if yall want a real scare go to the old house on the hawkinsville -eastman highway or to the old hospital in hawkinsville, and leave these people alone!!
and im tellin yall, if someone was to disturb me while i was at rest in my grave, yall wouldnt just be haunted, yall would be followed by my &*##$@ off soul for the rest of your natural born lives!!

I went here a couple of years ago when I was going to GSU. Myself and 4 other friends went in late one night. The spooky that happened was I was about to open a door in the house and it opened itself about 2 inches before I could grab the door handle, but besides that its really spooky, and I think I Do remember seeing a rocking chair in there.

Jeff says:

October 25, 2008, 1:49 am

lol thats funny I was reading the comments about them calling the law on you. Yeah that happened haha we had to chat with a deputy about us being in there but he let us go. I mean if you aren’t damaging anything what are they going to do for you trespassing give you a 20 dollar fine. haha

lol says:

October 25, 2008, 1:54 am

January 16, 2009, 6:49 pm

I used to live in Statesboro and graduated from GSU in 2006. Has anyone ever heard of the story of the Phi Mu Alum who was either murdered by her husband, or murdered her husband? I am trying to find information on this. We tried to visit the house one time, and just drove by. I have heard that the house is still owned by the surviving spouse (who is in a mental institution), and that it is as it was when the murder happened, including dry cleaning still by the front door from the day it happened. Anyways, I dont really know the story, but was hoping someone did. I think it happened in the late 1990’s.

Hey Justin
its prolly been a while but do u know how ur brother looked up the Harville house at the library. im tryin to do so too but it seems they might have it in the special collections area. is that where they found it?

Sean Googe says:

February 21, 2009, 6:50 pm

Ok today I went by the house because me and a few friends wanted to investigate it. We saw the house from the road and left. Wanting to know more about the old House and the rumors of its hauntings we did some research. Afterward we wanted to see about getting permission to be on the property. No one should try to go there without permission first. I can tell you that you will not be able to go any further than the road. We called the Sheriff’s office to see what kind of permission we could get and its strictly forbidden and the Sheriff(who literally lives right down the road) Goes by the house every day to make sure no one goes in. We have equipment so we will drive by sometime and try to video from the road. DO NOT GO ON THE PROPERTY OR IN THE HOUSE. Its not safe and you will be arrested for trespassing on private property. Please show respect to the people that own the house and the law enforcement.

March 13, 2009, 5:17 pm

I have been to the Harville house. It was me and my two friends. The house is completely remodeled now except for the back porch which is still wooden and the windows are like 5 foot from the ground. So me and my friends went out looking for the Harville cemetary but we couldnt find it so we went to the house instead. It actually looks like someone lives there now because it had two lamps on in the living room that were really bright cause if you look throgh the window you can see through the house. The funny thing is the blinds are only open at the top and close at the bottum which is creepy and i have never seen blinds like that before. So we were kinds skeptical about getting out and going up to the front door. So we walked up to the front porch and it was like you could feel like somebody was watching you. I walked up the stairs cause i at least wanted to knock on the door or something. Instead i thought about sitting in one of the rocking chairs that was on the porch. I walked up the stairs and every stair was creaking as if they were really old. But they werent cause basically the whole house was remodeled. So i got up on the porch and looked at the chairs. Soon as i went up to it something inside the house made a noise so i got closer. And i kicked the rocking chair hard enough to move it a little. And when i did that the noise inside the house got louder like someone was walking up to the front door or at least standing there cause me and my friend heard it so he ran and i took off behind him cause i didnt know if somebody was home or what. It was crazy. I want to go back again with some more of my friends and maybe get into the house somehow. It doesnt look like there is a way to get in anymore. And the back porch was way too dark to try and climb up in there. So hopefully next time something different will happen.

Carlos Feliciano says:

Hey Reggie, When u plannin on going back up there? i go to southern, maybe we could set up a time for a group to go?

Reggie says:

March 13, 2009, 5:53 pm

Idk Carlos. After reading all these comments it kinda makes me regret ever going to it. I lnow that it is disrespectful to go on other people property and i really dont believe in hauntings or anything cause i was raised up in church all my life. I just went because it was my first time ever hearing about it and i got curious and they wanted to do it. I went there last night to be exact and I really do think that someone lives there now cause the lawn is pretty and so is the house. Maybe an old couple lives there because there is a wheelchair ramp coming off the side of the front porch. Knowing what i know now that i have read most of these comments i do feel bad for going there and kicking the rocking chair. But if you want to check it out i will watch from the other side of the street so i dont get shot.

Carlos says:

March 13, 2009, 5:57 pm

True. Last time i went i just drove by. i probably wont go up to the porch. i guess ill drive by again and take a look with my friend. Thnxs

March 13, 2009, 6:28 pm

The ghost road that people on here is talking about is called the Railroad Bed. The name for the dirt road is called Railroad Bed. Its on a very dark dirt road in Brooklet. A while back a man lived out there that worked with trains and what not. Apparently he was beheaded or hit by the train or some ****. There use to be an old house out there. Idk if its still there. I think though but im not sure. Me and my friends go there a lot cause i use to stay not too far from it. We would just drive down that road and turn off the headlights and just sit there in the car. Nothing ever really happened to us except the windows fogged up and it was hot out. There is occasionally you can see a flashlight shining in a distance. I dont think its as bad as it use to be out there. You all can check it out if you want. Its basically just off eighty driving into brooklet. There is a Railroad Bed Conn and just plain ol Railroad Bed. Each road leads to the same place. Have fun!!!

Oh by the way. The Harville house does have an address. There is a black mailbox in the driveway that says 1801. Im really guessing that somebody lives there now. The whole house is remodeled except for the back porch. It has like bluish, grayish siding on it. With two little lamps that always stay on shining through the living room window.

I grew up in Statesboro and know the family that owns the house. Although we never went in the house, it was always intriguing and scary to us. I can’t verify if it’s haunted or not, but I can tell you that the family has for years been tired of people going in it and vandalizing it. I do know a lot of people who claimed to have seen the light upstairs though.

I can not believe this comment page has been going for 4 years. I also can’t believe the stupid comments some people left. I still have the videos somewhere but I will have to find them. Reggie, I’m not sure if you are looking at the same house that we are talking about. The house we were talking about seemed to be beyond repair, but I don’t know maybe it is.

I am a member of a paranormal research group and if someone can give me the owner’s contact info maybe we can put this thing to rest for good. With and only with the owner’s permission we would investigate.

Wow, looking at the pictures from 07 it really breaks my heart to see such a beautiful house falling down. I hope they are trying to restore it, if so, please do not give up, it is beautiful. I hope that people will show some respect and not try to destroy it. Please restore the house.

I know the people that own the house. Its not the old ladies’ stuff still in the house. The family used it for storage. The lady DID NOT die in the house, she died in the hospital. The house is actully grow over by trees so its hard to see. If you do go be careful because the floor is falling out.
PS:not haunted.

My name is eric brannen.I was born and raised in statesboro georgia.None of the stories about the two old ladies are true.My family new the two old women.Back in the 70S collage kids harrassed the two old women so much they had to move out. the two women were sisters and died of old age in a nurseing home.My brother knows the harvilles who own it know and the stories of it being haunted are not true.i went hunting in the field behind the house a week ago and was their at dark looking in the windows and saw nothing. sorry to let people down.

alot of people on here are lying. I went to the house my freshman year in college back in 2005. The house is not being used for storage, it looks just like someone left one day and it hasn’t been touched, but ofcourse the floors are starting to rot and such. I wasn’t in there for long, because the guy that owned the house came up and called the cops and made us leave, but I’m pretty sure that the people on here saying they know the family and such have no idea what they are talking about.

eric brannen says:

January 8, 2010, 1:28 am

Well not only do i know them im kin to them and well over half these storie are bull.I think its cool that their is an old well in the hall between the house and kitchen.The guy that owns it know showed it to me and said about twenty years ago they were going to restore it but it would have been 1.5 million back then.So they are going to let it fall in.the cool thing is i found a nice arrow head in the field behind the old house between two cotton plants so ill have something to remember it by.

Jeff says:

January 8, 2010, 1:55 am

1.5 million??? You could build about 30 of these houses for cheaper than that must less restore them. You must be referring to a different house. This house is not much more than a shack.

I am a paranormal investigator from Reidsville, Georgia and if there is still a Harville family member watching this site, would you please contact me at my email address. Since there is so much controversy on this house, I was curious to know if you would mind letting us do an investigation around the house to end all of this controversy.

This is actually a family home from the original property owned by the Harville family. The property now is sectioned off to relatives. The story of the 2 old ladies is bull. It was orginally built as a 2 room one level home, and was added on to many times later. The family began very poor, like most in that time did, but over the years acquired land for farming, which is still farmed by the same family name to this day. Leave well enough alone and go study.

The house is not haunted. Never was, never will be. We used to hide out in the house years ago on Halloween and shine flashlights and make noises to scare the trespassers. The house used to have ornate fixtures and things, but are long gone now thanks to all of the people sneaking in and stealing anything of value. Now the house is in such a condition I wouldn’t even try to climb in for fear of falling through the floorboards. It is VERY dangerous at this point, there are no ghosts, and yes we are aware you will try anyway and will be ready to call the cops. Just because no one lives there anymore doesn’t mean it gives you the right to enter private property and break the law. Please just look from the road, admire the once beautiful architecture, and be on your way.

I grew up in Statesboro and have MANY times gone and sat on te road in front of this house (my parents taught me better than to trespass). I never once saw a light that wasn’t a flashlight of some teenager sneaking in but I did one hear a sound that made my blood run cold…the sound of a shotgun chambering a shell. Don’t isn’t worth your life to find out that there is nothing to this story.

I live in Albany Georgia,and if you really want to visit a Haunted gravesite,,The 7 churches is the best place I have seen. If you take a camera and take pics of random spots there,You will definately not be disappointed! It is awesome!

According to “Spirit Of A People-Bulloch County 1796-1996″,the haunting story originates from the 1950’s and is because one of the Harville daughters who had taken ill was seen through a window wearing a white gown on occasion. It goes on to say that a lot of the damage to the house was done by vandals and kids trespassing on the property. In highschool,a group of friends and I went out there one night and nothing happened. Saw,heard,&felt paranormal things elsewhere,but not there. Oh,and Ghost Road(Railroad bed rd.)in Brooklet has no spirits on it either…just a local legend. Believe me,it’s spooky looking,but i’ve spent a lot of time hunting & riding there & also in highschool we’d jump out with lights & scare hell out’ve people,but never personally had an experience there.

This house IS NOT HAUNTED !! Read from this link from the people who own it !

This is bullshit. Theres no blue light. I lived in the dirt road across the street from the harville house for 2 months while I interned in statesboro. The harville house is famous because me harville that built the house, was on the people in the delegation to go to milledgeville and voted yes to succeed the states of Georgia from the union. There’s no way you can venture inside of it because David’s house is less than 100feet from It and it’s dilapidated and boarded up.

The First Baptist Church of Statesboro Georgia is haunted. There’s hundreds of people buried underneath it in 1945 to expand. We checked Eastside Cem. Our ancestors remains aren’t there. They are underneath church. Many revolutionary war soldiers and confederate soldiers underneath that church. So sad and creepy!!!

As a last ditch effort to save her would you or do you know someone who would like to be married on this property? With one beautiful wedding behind us, Harville Family is in process of improving a unique country wedding venue with the aim of generating funds to at least maintain if not restore the “Big House”. Facebook Harville House and Harville House Barn for more info. Please comment or message me to let me know what you think!

Nowadays it’s been cleaned up by the owners. I hope they are restoring it. I would drive past it almost every other day and I always wished someone would finally fix it up! Never seemed haunted, just old, like other houses on the very same road. There are three that could be described as “haunted”, at least! They are really cool old houses. That’s it.
