Update on West Point, Georgia's Atkinson House

Back in mid-October, I attended and wrote about the ghost walk I attended in West Point, Georgia. I have just received some information regarding the Atkinson House from a reader who married into a related family and spent much time in the house. She is also well acquainted with Mrs. Atkinson who lived in the house through the late 20th century. The reader stated that she heard nothing about nor experienced any paranormal activity in the house. Mrs. Atkinson, she stated, loved telling family stories and would have likely told ghost stories about the house if they existed.

In the world of ghost stories, it is not uncommon to hear stories about a location only to find that it may not really be haunted or that parts of the story may be exaggerated or fabricated. One of the goals of this blog is to provide an array of views on a particular location. This information is truly another piece in the puzzle that is our historical legacy; a legacy that includes both historical fact and legend.

My appreciation to the reader who provided me with this information.
