One of Augusta's most unique and folkloric attractions, the Haunted Pillar, was destroyed this weekend in a car crash. We have heard from many in the community of their concern for the fate of the popular pillar and decided to start a Go Fund Me page to allow people passionate about the pillar to contribute to its restoration.

"The Haunted Pillar is part of urban legend and has been a valued tourism asset for many years. It is very unique to Augusta,” said Barry White, President/CEO of the Augusta CVB. “The community sells Haunted Pillar souvenir t-shirts, it’s included in various tours and it has been written about and featured in many television series, websites and travel media.”

How You Can Help

1. Buy a Haunted Pillar t-shirt at the Augusta Visitor Center. For every t-shirt purchased, the Augusta CVB will donate $2.00 toward the rebuilding of the Haunted Pillar.

2. Purchase a Killer Pillar t-shirt and Land of Thee will donate $2.00 for every t-shirt sold to the Haunted Pillar rebuilding fund.

3. Buy a tour ticket from the Augusta Ghost Trolley and a portion of ticket sales will be donated toward the repairs of the pillar.

4. Donate on the Haunted Pillar's Go Fund Me page.

The Haunted Pillar belongs to the City of Augusta who is investigating the amount it will take to repair it. Any donations made to the Go Fund Me account and other sales will go to restore the Pillar and will be given in support of those efforts to rebuild it.
