Abbeville, SC is home to one of the most haunted places the State, Abbeville Opera House. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
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 of 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.
