Tour Highlights

  • You'll likely experience the ghost of Sue Howard, the grieving mother who prays at her dead child's grave from the spirit world. There are pictures to prove it!
  • Hear about the Great Nullifier, famous Rebel warrior John C. Calhoun. Find out why he and his wife still dance in the street every year, for over 150 years running!
  • Hear tales of people being buried alive. Doctors in old Charleston didn't take many chances with contagious diseases. Those who fell unconscious in hospitals sometimes woke up in a grave!
  • Learn how the terms "saved by the bell" and "graveyard shift" were coined. You'll be glad you weren't around when they were.
