Lasting approximately 90 minutes, the Sorrel-Weed Ghost Tour leads groups through the Sorrel-Weed House, once featured on SyFy's Ghost Hunters for its reputed paranormal activity. Knees tremble as guests tread carefully through the house's quarters, including a basement room with infrared lighting, as a guide shares some of Savannah's darkest stories. Tour-takers are invited to bring their own ghost-hunting equipment, such as cameras, audio recorders, and pizza, which everyone knows even resentful spirits can't turn down.
The opening scene of Forrest Gump follows a feather as it floats above Savannah's rooftops, a view seen from the Sorrel-Weed House, where the scene was filmed. Completed between 1839 and 1840, the now-iconic building was distinguished as a state landmark in 1954—only the second house in Georgia to receive that honor. Today, during historic tours, guests patter down the same corridors where onetime houseguest General Robert E. Lee once practiced hacky sack, or track spirits during ghostly explorations of the home's creepy quarters. Southern history pervades each visit as guests catch glimpses of the house’s antique decor and Greek revival architecture.
