The Haunted Babcock Building Of The Former South Carolina State Hospital Has A Bone-Chilling History

Home to numerous haunted places from cemeteries to restaurants, haunted beaches, and more, South Carolina is also home to one of the most haunted buildings in the nation. Legendary not only for its (alleged) haunts, but also for its sprawling campus and signature Robert Mills architecture, the South Carolina Mental Asylum was built on Bull Street in Columbia in 1827.
