Hall Tales, episode 8: Ghosts of Gainesville
HALL TALES - Ghosts.jpg
The Adams house near Brenau University was for years home to a ghost named Lucy Adams. The girl died years ago from complications related to an appendectomy, as the story goes, and her mother was so filled with grief that the girl's spirit was unable to move on — until a few Gainesville ghost researchers stepped in to help. - photo by Nick Bowman

Who is the ghost haunting Pearce Auditorium at Brenau University? Why does a spirit stalk the stacks of the Hall County library in downtown Gainesville? Are there any dangerous ghosts in the county? And why do we cling to stories of dead relatives come back to visit us?

Listen to local ghost researchers Kathy Amos and Gail Hogan talk about these questions and their experiences in the latest episode of Hall Tales. And don’t miss the recording of the voice of a little girl said to haunt a home in downtown Gainesville.

Hall Tales is a podcast series produced by The Times that explores the history of Hall County from recent events to those beyond living memory. Episodes publish twice a month through December, when the county will celebrate its 200th birthday.
