South Carolina’s haunted past is evident in so many places that many have come to believe hauntings in the Palmetto State are almost a way of life. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there’s no denying some of the past occurrences here that could plausibly leave a forever “footprint” of previous lives. The location of the oldest performance theater in the U.S. is no different.

While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
