Blind Tiger Pub

When it comes to the Blind Tiger Pub, the name itself says it all. The name, coined in the late 1800s, was a common phrase that usually described sordid establishments. These places allowed illicit gambling and drinking behind closed doors in an era of increased temperance legislation, as a port city and one of the first to enact laws against drinking. Charleston had many such establishments. The current Blind Tiger pays homage to this side of Charleston’s cultural roots in a historic building that dates back to the early 1800s and boasts many ghostly encounters.

 

Dungeon

Formally known as the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, this site is a relic of Charleston’s dark past as a port city. Don’t let the stately Georgian appearance on the street level deceive you, though the basement beneath is filled with eerie halls once occupied by long-dead prisoners, many of whom are said to haunt the building still today. As with the rest of Charleston, there’s more than meets the eye going on behind its elegantly architected walls.

F.W. Wagener Building

Named after one of Charleston’s most famous businessmen, Frederick Wilhelm Wagener, the F.W. Wagener building was initially constructed to house his cotton and phosphate trading ventures. It earned its haunted reputation after the business downturns following the end of the Civil War pushed one young associate into committing suicide on the third floor. The building has had many afterlives since, as fine-dining restaurants and breweries. However, everyone who works there reports similar ghostly incidents and an inexplicable “chill” coming from the old offices on the upper floors.

What to Expect on Your Charleston Ghost Tour

Charleston may be well-known as one of the country’s most hospitable cities, but underneath the city’s pleasant facade lies a deep history filled with terrifying stories of desperation. As we walk around Charleston’s downtown area at night, you will see places like the Wegener Building, haunted by a nineteenth-century businessman who put his final hope for financial salvation, his last harvest of cotton, on a ship and watched it sail out of the harbor only to catch fire accidentally on the horizon. He hanged himself there and then, and his swinging corpse can sometimes be seen in the top-floor windows of this regal building.

During the day, you can explore Charleston’s beautiful city center and interact with the famously friendly locals. At night, join us and take a trip through the scandalous past of Charleston’s colonial history and beyond. Your tour will help you understand that even in Chucktown, evil can lurk at the very center of civility.

Charleston Terrors is a great way to see the amazing sites of historical Charleston while also getting your fill of the ghostly atmosphere of the city’s most haunted locations. Reserve your Charleston ghost tour today and experience a side of Charleston that not many get to see.
