Based on Ed Macy’s best-selling book, Haunted Charleston, this walking tour takes to the historic streets of Charleston, where true life is stranger than fiction.
Macy leaves embellishment by the wayside to let these stories—in ghastly and sometimes dreadful detail—tell themselves. Combing through the oft-forgotten enclaves of the Holy City, Macy tells of a group of orphans who haunt a College of Charleston dorm, a Citadel cadet who haunts a local hotel and a 200 year old graveyard, to name just a few. Based on historic events and specific details that are often lost in most ghost stories, this collection of haunting tales sparks curiosity about what figure might still be lurking in the alleyways of Charleston’s storied streets.
