We have been counting down to Halloween with eight of Cobb County's spookiest stories. #2 on our list is the William Root House in Marietta, Georgia. This popular museum was originally the home of William Root, the town’s first druggist and a merchant. There have been multiple claims of paranormal activity in the main bedroom of the house. Many have seen the spirit of a woman (possibly Mrs. Root) peering from the bedroom windows. Museum operators also claim that the antique rope bed sometimes appears to have been slept in when the house is opened in the mornings. During the month of October, The William Root House is decorated for a Victorian-style funeral and offers flashlight tours on Friday nights!

We are counting down 8 nights until Halloween with 8 of Cobb County's spookiest stories, starting with the Concord covered Bridge. According to the Urban Baboon, a couple of little girls drowned (or were drowned) in the waters below the bridge. According to lore, if you park your car at night, turn it off and leave some chocolate on it, you’ll hear the girls climbing on the car and laughing. When you turn the car back on, the candy will be gone and there will be handprints on your car.

*ps this is a highly traveled, single-lane bridge, so DO NOT turn your car off as you explore this site...or you may become the next ghost on our list!
