Haunted Charleston

Scary Sites, Eerie Encounters, And Tall Tales

Book Description

Among South Carolina's many treasures is Charleston, a city of  rich history. Since the first British colonists established Charles Towne in 1670, this city has been a study in contradictions – a beautiful coastal environment, magnificent architecture, and sometimes unspeakable cruelty.  Haunted Charleston, a collection of stories of ghosts, mysteries, and paranormal happenings in  the Holy City, will leave readers  frightened and fascinated. 
Haunted Charleston includes twenty-five stories from the Ghosts at Dock Street Theater to the Haunted Graveyards, that will send chills up the spines of even the most daring ghosthunters.  Each story includes notes on historical significance and local lore and readers will discover just how haunted and spooky this city is.
A bibliography, a resources list of contact information to visit the haunted sites, and a brief “Ghost Hunter’s Guide” for the region or city, are also included, giving readers the resources to explore the haunted areas for themselves.
