High Shoals: The Other Witch’s Graveyard

For those who don’t know, Paulding County is home to not one, but TWO witch’s graveyards. You read about the first witch’s graveyard here and we were barely able to touch base on it. We’ll do our best to get something up soon that goes more into detail.

The High Shoals Cemetery and the adjacent waterfall behind the graveyard are ripe with stories from so many people here in Paulding. Stories of spirits and strange creatures are very common among the reported sightings. Just like Old White Oak Cemetery, we want to share with you what we know and have heard about High Shoals.

  1. A woman in white roaming the woods, around the waterfall, as well as in the cemetery itself is the most reported ghost sighting. We’ve only ever had one report that placed this entity at the roadside. She’s described as a dull (non-glowing) spirit in a slim white dress with straight blonde hair.
  2. To add to that, there has also been sightings of a Union solider at the side of the water fall drinking from it.
  3. Even more eerie, we’ve gotten reports of the sounds of a small child drowning at the waterfall. When good Samaritans run toward the sound, it stops and no one is in sight.
  4. This is the exact area where a number of the reported “werewolf sightings” have taken place.
  5. High Shoals Cemetery is said to have two witches buried there. From what we have heard, it seems that they are more than likely buried in the back-center of the cemetery. As the local legend goes, they were two spinster sisters who both went crazy (for unknown reasons). Among other things, they had been accused of supposedly “cursing the woods”.

Who is to say that these event may have actually happened? People experience what they experience and believe what they believe. When we’re told about a reported sighting, you can sometimes hear a “ring of truth” to what the person is telling you. As though they’re saying “this actually happened to me, I know I sounds crazy.”

What say you? Have you had any experiences at High Shoals Cemetery? What do you think about the reported sightings listed here?

Is there a werewolf in Paulding county? Probably not…

No true believers, you did not misread the title. Is there a werewolf in Paulding County? Probably not- but that hasn’t stopped the nearly two dozen sightings that have been reported since 2006. You read that right, nearly TWO DOZEN reported sightings of a werewolf-like creature have occurred here in Paulding County, Georgia.

The area in question seems to stretch from High Shoals Road all the way to Lucas Road. Nearly every report is the same. Someone’s driving their car and sees something with incredible speed cross the road in front of them. They slow down to see what it was, only to be greeted with a glimpse of the alleged Paulding County werewolf. Lucas Road 3

Towering over any known canine, people claim it to be nearly 7 feet tall. That’s more than twice the size of an adult large breed dog. All reports have described the beast as having piercing red eyes and a dull charcoal grey coat with similarly colored skin exposed. Every report about the physical description has remained the same. And we can confirm with confidence that most of the people who send us reports of this creature have no connections to one another. They are seemingly and entirely independent reports.

Now don’t go out there with your guns blazin’, hunting some werewolf on the backroads of Paulding County just yet! More than likely, the werewolf is just local folklore, although recent sightings have put that into question. These two dozen reported werewolf sightings have happened as lately as last month (July 2015).

With that being said, what do you think these people are seeing? It’s not a school-of-thought we usually subscribe to, but who can really say what experiences may or may not have happened? We don’t mean to demean anyone’s experiences or beliefs. We would just like to know where more people stand on the matter.
