Legends And Lore Tour 2017

The dates for this event have already occurred, please check back again for new dates.

Visit Website

Since the Georgia Trust acquired this landmark in 1978, consultants, staff, workmen, and even visitors have told of spine-tingling experiences ranging from odd sounds, to mysterious problems with lights and doors, and to actual sightings of apparitions. Although we traditionally have been reluctant to speak of these events, Hay House has been included by others in ghost anthologies, including Nancy Roberts’ Georgia Ghosts (1997) and those on various websites. In 2015, the house was named by Architectural Digest as one of the “13 Most Beautiful Haunted Destinations Around the World,” joining Edinburgh Castle and the Chateau de Brissac in the Loire Valley in making this list. Recognizing that the stories themselves, are an important facet of our history and appeal, we are for the second time offering a special seasonal opportunity for visitors to enjoy.

This specialty tour will feature areas of Hay House that are not accessible on the regular tour such as the Wine Cellar, Attic, and Cupola. Guides will also explain the myths and realities of certain architectural features such as the Secret Room and the underground tunnels. Guests will also visit the Harris-Hall-Bennett House, a site with stories of hauntings as well.

The evening will be followed by a reception in the historic Dining Room where board members and staff will be on hand to answer questions.
