Night at Magnolia Manor
May 3, 2014 -- 6:00 PM to 10:00 AM (May 4)
418 North Main Street / Bolivar, Tennessee
Join American Hauntings
and American Ghost Society Rep Shelly Beard for a night of
history and hauntings at Magnolia Manor, a graceful Civil
War-era home in the historic town of Bolivar, Tennessee.
Built in 1849, the mansion experienced the Civil War first
hand and was a Union headquarters where the infamous Battle
of Shiloh was planned! Thanks to this, the house has witnessed a tapestry of
tragedy and death, as well as the blood and violence of the
war. You'll spend the entire night soaking up the rich
history and spooky ambience of the house and then search for the spirits that are rumored
to be lingering within the building's stone walls.
Note: This is a Ghost
Hunt, NOT a Sleepover. There are no rooms for sleeping but
there are hotels in the area if you decide to leave early.
Magnolia Manor as haunted as so many claim? You'll have the chance to
find out on May 3 as American Hauntings
takes you on a private excursion into the Manor's past in search of
$85 Per Person

General William T. Sherman
Magnolia Manor was built by Judge Austin Miller, a prominent
attorney, in 1849. The classic Georgian Colonial was made by
hand, constructed from bricks that were made by slaves on the
property. It was used a headquarters for the Union Army during
the Civil War and Generals Grant, Sherman, Logan and McPherson
used the house while planning the Battle of Shiloh.
Three generations of the Miller family lived in the house until
the 1970s. Charles Austin Miller, son of Judge Miller, followed
in his father's footsteps to become an attorney and later,
Secretary of the State of Tennessee. One of his daughters,
Lizzie Lea Miller, was elected as a State Representative and was
the first women in the history of Tennessee to hold this type of
high political office. The house has since been owned by two
other families and has been operated as a bed and breakfast by
owner Elaine Cox since 1985.
Over the years, guests and visitors to
Magnolia Manor have reported many strange and ghostly happenings
at the house, including apparitions, phantom footsteps; objects
that move around on their own; strange knocking sounds; and
Past investigations in the building have collected photos, EVPs
and first-hand accounts of the hauntings --- but why take the
word of other ghost hunters when you can find out what's
happening here for yourself??
