I am posting part of an email that I received from The Fitzpatrick Hotel in Washington, GA.

“Weekend Special — October 4th and 5th, 2013
Spend a delightful weekend with a stay at the Fitzpatrick Hotel and experience the outdoor cemetery drama, “Resthaven Revisited”.

The Fitzpatrick Hotel is located in historic downtown Washington, GA in walking distance to the Robert Toombs House. One of the best things you can do is eat dinner at Talk of the Town and then stroll around the neighborhood.

There are so many antebellum homes out there! Can you see the ghost in the upstairs window?

Washington is one of the few towns in Georgia that actually has Revolutionary War and Civil War History. What’s more, Washington, GA is the last place the Confederate Gold Treasury was seen. Somewhere around $450,000 in silver and gold coins went missing during a train robbery. Callaway Plantation is nearby, and is allegedly the sight of many Confederate ghostly spirit guests. They certainly have some authentic props around the house. Check out the hair art and the coffins. Yikes!

The Mary Willis Library is gorgeous! They even have one of the original Confederate Treasury chests on display.
