The phantoms of five of the most haunted places in South Carolina are eager to tell their spooky stories. Here are our spine-chilling picks from the Palmetto State!

Poogan’s Porch

Charleston, South Carolina

Haunted Poogan's Proch

Poogan's Porch was originally a spacious home, erected in 1891. By 1976, the neighborhood had changed suitably to allow for the conversion of the house into a restaurant. A woman dressed in black appears to the centerpiece of the haunted stories from this establishment. She has been witnessed hanging around the restaurant and the grounds. She has been spotted upstairs, where she knocked on an occupied bathroom door repeatedly. When the guest exited the bathroom, she watched as the lady in black faded away before her eyes. Many have seen her at the second-floor window waving from an unoccupied building. She is thought to be Zoe St. Armand who owned the house in the early 1900s. This property reigns high as a ghost hunter’s favorite haunt!

Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

Little River, South Carolina

Haunted Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

Clarence and Essie Bessent-McCorsley build this beautiful Victorian home in 1910. After Clarence passed away in the late 1940s, Essie often rented rooms to fishermen visiting Little River, later transitioning to a restaurant. Employees of the establishment have had some strange and unusual experiences. Some say there are both a male and a female spirit in the building. Most activity is in the kitchen and bar areas included objects moving unexplainably, baffling loud noises. There is also a shadow figure seen on the second floor and a face seen in an upstairs window when the building is empty.

Abbeville Opera House

Abbeville, South Carolina

Haunted Abbeville Opera House

This lovely opera house is over one hundred years old, so it has many secrets within its walls. The most famous haunt is said to be an actress, who on her way to the theatre, became ill on the train and died in town. They say that you can see her from time to time in period dress, sometimes even on the stage. She is so beloved by the theatre, that they keep a seat for her open at all times. What makes this particularly interesting is the legend that declares if anyone touches her seat, something will happen during the running play. There is also a spirit of a young black man who fell in love with a white actress. The tale that is told was he was murdered in the balcony by locals who did not agree with such romances. Other spooky reports include strange and unexplainable sounds, footsteps on the catwalk or unnerving movements from the corner of their eyes.

1914 Chester County Jail

Chester, South Carolina

1914 Haunted Chester County Jail

On this site since 1914, The Chester County Historical Society Museum and Archives are housed in the old Chester County Jail. This property is considered to be one of the oldest, and therefore most haunted, in town. The main floor is where the former jailer's family lived, while suspects were processed in the basement and imprisoned on the upper floors.  Apparitions are commonly experienced here, and Liz Anderson, a representative of the museum, is not shy to reveal. She has seen them herself! Anderson says she's gotten to know some ghosts, such as an entity she calls The Trustee, and that she's not the only one to claim to see him - a visitor recently asked her about an old man. Validation is always good!  It is believed he is the spirit of a guard that frequently walks in front of the jail's uppermost windows. Is he still protecting the grounds? He is joined by many other protective spirits. Doc is another phantom that Anderson has named. She firmly believes he saved her once when a stool crumbled beneath her!  Expect to hear disembodied voices, footsteps, strange noises, and other activities that cannot be explained, naturally!

20 South Battery Inn (Formerly the Battery Carriage House Inn)

Charleston, South Carolina

 Haunted 20 South Battery Inn

Built in 1843, this place is saturated with history and legacies of years gone by. Much came from the Civil War Era, with Charleston receiving much of the battle hits. This mansion survived this period, in addition to the many purposes constantly underwent. Finally, loving hands took over the property, restoring to its majestic original structure as an inn to those visiting the charming city of Charleston. Guests and employees have had odd encounters, many of which are eerily similar. All rooms appear to have activity. The most notable one includes Room 8, where the apparition of a man was seen accompanied by a sense of not being alone in the room and someone hovering over you while you sleep. Room 10 has also witnessed an apparition of a gentleman that comes through the guest room from the hall. The owners are very open and kind in sharing the ghostly tales that have been reported by guests and staff.
