Haunted Alabama: The Lady in the Freight House

Do you believe in ghosts?

Sandra Sowder has owned Freight House Restaurant in downtown Hartselle for a decade now. In the early years, she’d ask her customers about the ghosts that supposedly roamed the historic building. And every time she’d ask, she’d get the same answer…

They’re here. They’ve always been here.

Listen as she tells the stories of the streaking lights, the traveling rail road spikes and the lady in lace that roams the restaurant.

Skeptical? Why not head to the restaurant to see for yourself?

You’ll leave with a delicious meal, and maybe, if you’re lucky, with your own ghost story to tell…
