Most People Don’t Know The Haunted History Behind This Beloved South Carolina Theater

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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
