Tour ends within a five minute walk or one city block from Marion Square start point
Thursday to Monday
Start your evening by meeting a professional guide at the John C. Calhoun monument in Marion Square. During your 90-minute tour, you will be engaged with riveting and haunting tales about the "Holy City" from the 2004 popular book, 'Haunted Charleston' by Ed Macy and Geordie Buxton. View up close what 'Huffington Post' calls "The Most Haunted Hotel in the South," which is a renovated citadel arsenal built in response to an alleged slave uprising and once home to the men who shot the first shots of the War Between the States. Also, in Marion Square are the remnants of a 100 yard tabby rock wall from the 42-day American Revolutionary War battle between 16,000 British and American men in 1780.
At a College of Charleston dorm, you will come "face-to-face" with a group of orphans from the ca. 1790 Charleston Orphan House. Look up for an angelic spirit in an 18th century 'Brown Fellowship cemetery and visit the oldest black congregation in the South, where the Denmark Vesey and an alleged slave uprising in 1822 was plotted. See the headstone of Elizabeth Jackson, the mother of President Andrew Jackson, and learn about her botched exhumation. You'll also visit the city boundary line where public hangings took place throughout three centuries until July of 1911 before a Category 3 hurricane known as "Duncan's Storm" washed away the gory site and brutal practice.
The tour concludes within a few blocks (approximately a five minute walk) of Marion Square. All ages are welcome, but beware -- this is not for the faint of heart!

Tour was filled with not only supernatural stories but also a tremendous amount of history. Our guide Geordie was knowledgeable and fun!
Geordie, the tour guide, needs to list in the description that making a video of the tour is prohibited. He was very rude to me when I started to video the tour. He chastised me in front of 20 people. I have always been able to video the tours in all the cities that I visited.
The tour was somewhat interesting. However, it was primarily historical details.
Jordie was a great tour guide. Very interesting. Our tour was the day after the shooting and he handled everything very respectfully. Great Job!
Excellent tour guide that was very knowledgeable and excited to tell the cities tales.
This is not a "cheesy jump up and scare you" tour. Our guide Geordie took us to where paranormal sitings occurred while delivering very eloquent and factual stories of both historical and paranormal value. It was so good, I bought his book, Supernatural Charleston which is a definate must read!
