The Hungry Ghost of McDonough
I have lived in the city of McDonough now for about 20 years. And it is odd how when a new restaurant opens in town we suddenly have a ghost to contend with.
I saw a news story on 11 Alive about the McDonough ghost hunter who is investigating another restaurant in the city. It is the same old story in that he is using the train wreck of 1900 a mile or so North of town as the basis of the alleged haunting. I see some problems with this story. First they talk of pots and pans falling in the kitchen, well my daughter has worked in a lot of kitchens in her life and pots and pans falling are just part of a kitchen. A heavy truck going down the old concrete street in front of the building could have shaken those things from the shelf. Just some common everyday occurrences.
I have seen a few of the ghost hunting shows on TV and they use an EMF meter to measure the electric magnetic field. Again my work experience as an electrician will tell me that around all of the appliances and lighting you will have a high EMF. With all of this explained away lets look at the broader aspect of all this supposed ghost activity in McDonough.
I talked to my grandfather and he has lived in McDonough all his life.
He said there has never been a problem with ghost around the square because there are none. One key issue my grandfather spoke of is the fact that the buildings in question were not there during the time of the train wreck. His father helped with the searches at the Camp Creek Train Wreck. If you will remember most all of the other ghost hauntings that have taken place around the square were restaurants that were newly opened. Being new they would not be well known, what better way to get noticed than having a ghost and getting some free advertisements about it.
