The Legends Behind This South Carolina Mountain Will Keep You Up At Night

Many people will recognize the name ‘Paris Mountain’ because there’s a lovely state park at the base of one side of the mountain. We’ve written about that state park many times, suggesting an easy winter hike or just checking out the enchanting character of the park. But the mountain itself, the part that’s not in the state park system, as well as a new city park near the base of the mountain, has some seriously disturbing history and legends that may grab your interest — if you’re into that sort of thing. And if you’re not, then they may keep you up at night. Which one matches your inclination? Do you scare easily?

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
