The Story Behind This Haunted Mausoleum In South Carolina Is Beyond Creepy

The Palmetto State has a plethora of ghost tales pertaining to more than a handful of haunted places and the following cemetery on Hilton Head Island is among them. The mausoleum of William Baynard was built in 1846 and is the size of a modern day tiny house.

The Baynard Mausoleum is believed to be the oldest surviving intact structure in Hilton Head. The Zion Cemetery was established in the 18th century. The adjoining chapel was destroyed in the 1860s and nothing remains of the chapel.

Zion Cemetery is located on William Hilton Parkway (Bus 278) in Hilton Head near the intersection of Matthews Drive. It’s open 24 hours a day and free to visit.
