Charleston, SC is one of the most haunted cities in North America. Buxton and Macy tell chilling stories about the ghosts that inhabit Charleston's historical buildings. Timeless legends and recent accounts of spirits abound in this long-awaited book. Stories include: the Gentleman Ghost and Headless torso of the Battery Carriage House Inn, the despairing ghost in the beautiful Aiken-Rhett House, the tragic death of a young doctor and his return to a house on Church Street, and the ghost car on the imposing Cooper River Bridge, among many others. These are the stories behind the haunts of the Holy City.
