The haunted OLD CITY JAIL in Charleston, SC
After living in Charleston for the past 29 years, I finally made my way to tour the haunted, OLD CITY JAIL. Before the tour, I was really excited to finally see for myself what I had been hearing about for all these years. The jail and it's characteristics have been featured many times on television. After the tour....well....let's just say, I felt a little "unsettled". The structure itself is very impressive.....the history of events that occured inside the building left a lasting impression with me. After all, it was a JAIL.....built around 1802 and was a functional jail until 1939. High seas pirates as well as Confederate and Federal prisioners of war were tenants of the jail. Thousands died in the jail.
What was I expecting ? It sure wasn't the ordinary "downtown open house".
The jail is located at 21 Magazine St, Charleston SC...and is open at various times throughout the year for tour.
