Young Herbert Kilpatrick that played with the ghost of an old country gentleman named Gatt in Cahawba, Alabama. Cahaba, also spelled Cahawba, was the first permanent state capital of Alabama from 1820 to 1825, and the county seat of Dallas County, Alabama until 1866.
  Inspired Southerner.com tells the following Ghost story:


One of the scariest stories we were told, was about Herbert the grandson of one descendants of the Kilpatrick family. Herbert spent the summer with his grandfather at Old Cahawba. When he returned home, he told countless stories about Gatt the gentleman at Old Cahawba who watched over him while he roamed the grounds. Herbert’s brother told him it was impossible for Gatt to have watched over him because Gatt died before he was born.


Location of Old Cahawba, Alabama
Haunting History

Old Cahawba was once a thriving town built at the heart and in between the Cahaba and Alabama rivers. This location would prove very lucrative for the cotton industry and the town would become one of the richest towns in the U.S. during the 1800s. Many of the white residents left Old Cahawba when the state capital was moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 1826. The factory in the town became a Union soldiers’ prison during the Civil Was. When the Civil War ended, Old Cahawba was settled by emancipated slaves and became a booming cotton town., By the 1890s Old Cahawba had become a ghost town. The Cahaba Foundation was founded in 2008 to help raise private donations to preserve the site. Today, Old Cahawba is an archaeological research site.

Old Cahawba is known as ‘Alabama’s most famous ghost town.’  The town is one of the most haunted places in the state according to the book Haunted Alabama Black Belt written by David Higdon and Brett Talley.
