Foley House Inn

Hunting for haunted accommodations? They can show you where a body was hidden for almost a century at the Foley House Inn. Originally built in 1896 by Honoria Foley, the widow of a wealthy Irish immigrant, the Foley House Inn was the first actual Savannah bed & breakfast and things were peaceful for a long time. 

However, during a renovation in 1987, construction workers discovered human skeletal remains behind a wall. Although the skeleton has never been conclusively identified, it is believed the bones belong to a boarder from the late 1800s, a wealthy exporter who disappeared mysteriously. Speculation is that ”Wally” was murdered for his money and consequently secreted away behind the wall to hide the crime. 

The 19-guest room bed and breakfast is located in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District. With authentic southern cuisine and a friendly concierge team, you can customize all the details of your stay with more local lore and travel tips.

Anna seems to be a friendly spirit who wants to make her presence known.  

According to folklore, Anna was an unhappy bride from an arranged marriage who fell in love with a sailor in the early 1800’s.

Or, was she pushed from the window by her angry husband-to-be who had paid for her passage to Savannah?

The 17hundred90 Restaurant and Inn is one of Savannah’s oldest establishments offering fine dining and lodging with 14 comfortable rooms, each with king or queen sized bed, private bath, a growing collection of antiques, and ghosts waiting to tuck you in at night.
