Chester, SC is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, 1914 Chester County Jail. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
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.
This intense history feeds the intense hauntings in this property. 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!
This property was featured in the 2019's "World's Largest Ghost Hunt" (http://www.nationalghosthuntingday.com/)
