Every year during the holiday season, the Newnan Hospital Auxiliary sponsors a tour of historic homes in the city of Newnan. Since Newnan has many historic homes, including some antebellum houses, the tour can be very interesting.
Two years ago, on a dark and cold December night, we visited a home on the tour reportedly haunted by a ghost named Mary. My wife and I like enjoy reading and watching television programs about paranormal activity, so we entered the house and hoped that we would have an experience of some kind.
But nothing happened, as the house was very crowded and I'm sure that any right thinking spirit would have been terrified by all of the activity. So we continued the tour until we finished looking at all of the open houses and then we started walking back to the car.
Our route back to the car took us back by "Mary's" house, and when we walked past the front steps, there was a friendly cat there. My wife and I both like cats so we stopped and petted the cat.
We turned away from the cat and then started on our way, and as we left the stoop we heard a voice behind us. We quickly turned around and the cat was gone but a 60ish looking women was standing there looking puzzled.
"What's going on here? Why are there so many people in the house?" she asked. I told her the house was on the tour of homes, and that she might want to see this one, because it reportedly had a ghost.
"Oh no, I don't like ghosts at all" she replied. She seemed agitated so we bid her good night and turned away. Worried that she might follow us, I looked back to see which direction she was heading and she was gone, and the cat was back, sitting right where the woman had been standing!
My wife and I are convinced that we met "Mary" outside the house that night. Maybe we did, maybe not, but we wonder why someone would have been out on a cold night and not have known what was going on! I'm pretty sure that we had a paranormal experience. So put us on the list of believers!
