This Creepy Asylum Near Charlotte Is Still Standing… And Still Disturbing

There’s a creepy place near Charlotte that we bet you’ve never heard of. If you’re up for taking a short trip down the road to South Carolina, you can tour one of the oldest insane asylums still standing in the United States.

The South Carolina State Hospital is one of the longest standing asylums near the Queen City, and while it’s full of rich history, it can be quite chilling to visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
