For years, many groups have been investigating the historical haunts of Gainesville and trying to find explanations for the ghost stories passed down through the generations. The Northeast Georgia History Center began celebrating these spooky stories 10 years ago when it introduced a “Ghost Walk,” in which participants tour Brenau University to hear the legends of those who supposedly still walk the halls of old buildings in Gainesville. Again this year, the Southeastern Institute of Paranormal Research shared investigative equipment used to communicate with the legendary spirits and revealed some evidence the paranormal is active in Gainesville.
