Augusta's Haunted Pillar

One of Augusta's long-time myths was recently debunked involving our famed "Haunted Pillar". The pillar belonged to the old downtown open-air market, and the only remaining pillar after the market was destroyed by a tornado. Myth was that an abolitionist preacher was preaching at the market, and subsequently thrown out of town. The preacher cursed the market predicting its destruction. It was said that numerous persons met unfortunate fates attempting to knock down the pillar. However, just a few months ago, someone drove their car into the pillar destroying it.
