The Ghosts of Charleston
The highlight of Tour Charleston's Ghosts of Charleston Tour is entering the lush, spellbinding Unitarian Church Graveyard built in 1772. Real time hauntings occur only a handful of times a year. However, since 1996, when we started what is now Charleston's oldest ghost tour, spirits in the Unitarian Church Graveyard have reached out to many people on our tour in visual, tactile and auditory ways.
Come visit our store to get your hands on the latest limited releases from your favorite best-selling authors. Be sure to ask about our exclusive signed copies!
Your guided stroll through the French Quarter and South of Broad neighborhoods highlights over 347 years of our rich history and culture including the longest cobblestone street, The Dock Street Theater, Rainbow Row, historic churches, Charleston's celebrated waterfront, and much more. You will encounter Charleston’s history, culture, and country charm inspired by Diana Gessler’s celebrated book "Very Charleston."
