Athens Ghost Hunt: The Morton Theatre

Athens Ghost Hunt: The Morton Theatre received a 2015 national Savvy Award from the City-County Communications & Marketing Association (3CMA) in the Most Innovative category for populations of 0-120,000. The category covers all forms of media, not just videos.
On October 11-12, 2014 the Public Information Office and the Morton Theatre staff brought in a team from Ghosts of Georgia Paranormal Investigations to investigate strange occurrences that have been reported by numerous people throughout the building's history.

The Public Information Office and a videographer documented the overnight investigation. The resulting program, Athens Ghost Hunt: The Morton Theatre, runs approximately 29 minutes and features a brief history of the Morton Theatre, individuals recounting unexplained occurrences and ghost stories from the building, and the process and results of the ghost hunt.

The video is also available online on the Athens-Clarke County website, YouTube channel (, and Vimeo channel (
