One of the oldest surviving jail structures in the state, the Pauly Jail, located behind the 1871 Second Empire Style Courthouse, was erected in 1897.  It replaced the original jail of 1868 which was located on West Hardaway Street.

This ominous structure has castle-like facade featuring small projecting square brick turrets with witch's hats (spiked metal caps) at the corners.  There are rusticated stone lintels over the door and windows. The entrance is only a single door on the ground level.  One the second floor you will find the bullpen containing a metal table and benches that served as the eating quarters. To the right of the table is the commode and an open shower for bathing. On the third level, a trap door is set in the floor.  The door, which could be opened by pushing a lever, was used for hanging condemned prisoners in the early 1900’s. 

The Paul Jail is said to have been involved in one (Aberdeen Johnson) of seven documented lynchings occurring in Bullock County from 1889 to 1921.  There have been many deaths associated with the Pauly Jail over the time it was in operation.  One incident that occurred was that of JW Mann.  It is said that he accidentally burned to death in his cell on Christmas Eve 1960.

In 2004, independent film company Strata Production filmed part of "Heaven's Fall" at the Pauly Jail. The movie is based on the historic 'Scottsboro Boys' case, in which nine black youths were falsely accused of raping two white women. The case led to the end of whites-only juries.


Disembodied voices, strange sounds, heaving swinging sounds and multiple apparitions have been reported.  There are also claims of seeing apparition of a man with a noose around his neck on the third floor.


FRIDAY - PSYCHIC MEDIUM REAINGS SPIRITUAL AWAKENING!!  Dr. Mary Barrett will host a psychic medium gallery reading connecting to your loved ones that have crossed over.  

Dr. Barrett has a special gift of psychic mediumship.  This is the ability to connect with the deceased and bridge the gap between life on earth and the other side. She will open the line of communication and relay messages, help you find closure, relay knowledge from her spirit guides and so much more. 

Do you get a feeling your loved one is around you?  Are you having lucid dreams or smelling a familiar scent that reminds you of someone that is no longer here? Maybe you keep hearing a song that your loved one played or find random items that make you think of a loved one. A spirit may be saying hello or trying to send you an important message.  Don’t ignore their presence!!  Let Dr. Barrett help you!! You will receive validation of messages from Spirit. 

After you have spoken with your loved ones then journey into the night with a ghost hunt of this terrifying location.

SATURDAY - PAST LIFE REGRESSION HYPNOSIS – ENLIGHTENMENT!!  Dr. Barrett guides you as you travel into your past to find out who you were in your past lives. Have you ever had memories that you know were not yours? Do you have a fear of something and have no clue why? Do you feel extremely passionate about something but don’t understand why? Do you ever have DeJa’Vu? If anyone would like to know if they lived another life, she will guide you to explore your past lives.

Hypnosis is a changed state of awareness and increased relaxation that allows for improved focus and concentration.  You are in a deep state of meditation feeling calm and relaxed.  Past Life Regression (PLR) Hypnosis accesses memories and experiences that are hidden from your subconscious mind.

Past Life Regression Hypnosis can help to:

            Reconnect with past life experiences.

            Help understand why you feel a deep connection with certain places.

            Explore your past life and current Soulmate experiences.

            Identify physical ailments you have, which may be remnants of past life experiences.

            Explore unresolved emotions which have carried through into this lifetime, creating fears       

            or beliefs which you have been unable to explain.

            Acknowledge and embrace the key lessons learned through those lives.

She also does hypnosis for habits, weight loss, fears, etc. After traveling through time and discovering who you where hundreds of years ago then it will be time to take a journey into the spiritual world with a ghost hunt of this mysterious but haunted location.

This is an "authentic" paranormal investigation.  You will be part of the team.  We will be collecting evidence, documenting what we find and debunking what we can.  This is a hands-on investigation.  If you have equipment, please feel free to bring but keep in mind you are responsible for all personal equipment.   Please bring a flashlight.  Remember nothing is faked or staged. There will be no provocation, conjuring, etc.
