Haunted Chattanooga

Ghostly art lover

Hunter Museum employees have noticed a ghostly visitor perusing the artwork.  They recognize their ghost by her bashed-in head as Augusta Hoffman, murdered in 1915.  Augusta lived at 15 Bluff View, next door to the museum.  Her relatives, the Bennetts, were convicted of her murder when her skeletal remains, clothing, and jewelry were found in the basement.  In 1970, Augusta’s home was torn down, but she decided to remain.
