I went with my friend, Hillary neither of us thought this former jail, built in 1802, would frighten us. Though, admittedly, the very first thing we saw was pretty eerie.
|Our tour guide told us the tires were made of metal and the |
prisoners would be jolted around in this tiny cart as they were
carried down the bumpy roads.
There are no lights at the Old City Jail, and you must follow the tour guide’s flashlight. After entering the jail, one of the first things the guide pointed out was this.
|The faces on the wall definitely look real, but the |
image on the side is definitely not a ghost. At
least, I don't think it was a ghost. There was a
blue tarp hanging on the window next to this
part of the wall.
Hillary and I stuck close together as the tour guide took us from room to room, and cell to cell, telling stories of many pirates and other convicts jailed within the walls. The darkness, bitter chill, and tales of murders, hangings, and robberies definitely made our hair stand on end. But the moment I was the most afraid, quite possibly, was when I got my pictures developed.
All I will say, is that I definitely, absolutely, recommend this tour for a good scare.
Total Cost: $18 through Bulldog Tours
Best Deal: Hillary and I actually got in for free because I did some volunteer work for a historic house in Charleston
