We will be back every day this week with a new Halloween inspired project for you!
To finish off Halloweek in a spooky way, we went on a ghost tour of the old jail in Charleston! This is something that Morgan has wanted to do for a while and brought back some memories for me. In eighth grade, my class took an overnight trip to Charleston from Charlotte and one of the things we did was a walking ghost tour downtown. I don’t remember much about it, but it’s just interesting that I ended up living here and have never done a ghost tour since. The other great thing here was that we get to cross another thing off our 101 in 1001 list!
Charleston Jail Tour
The old jail is in the middle of a residential part of downtown and pretty close to the College of Charleston campus. We met up in front of the building and got a quick history lesson.
After going around the back of the building and hearing about executions, we headed inside to get spooked.
In each room we went in, we heard stories about the most famous people that had been held in those rooms. The stories were pretty freaky and we were always at the edge of our seats.
The part that freaked me out the most was when I took these three pictures that have crazy white streaks all over the place, especially in the first one!
I don’t know if they are actually supernatural spirits, but we were spooked, especially after the guide said that was the most active ghost room.
It was a quick tour, but definitely spooky and very interesting to learn about the history of it. Today, much of the building is a college that trains students how to do structural and design work to old, historic buildings.
Have you ever been on a ghost tour? See any ghosts?
