Ep. 362 has dropped! We have 2 investigations in this one! In the Old Jail, our guide Joy’s spirit box app says the following line, “Where’s the black?” We didn’t realize at the time what this might mean, but we now have a pretty good idea. After you listen, let us know what you think!
The 1837 Bed and Breakfast in Charleston, South Carolina is the former home of a cotton planter. The style of the home is a great example of the Charleston Single home. Although this was not a plantation, it still had slaves that lived on the third level and there are stories that claim that a mother and father were sold off to another planter, leaving their nine-year-old son without his parents. He may have tried desperately to find them and ultimately lost his life. Ghost stories claim that he is still here at the house, acting like a poltergeist pulling pranks on visitors and perhaps even appearing as footsteps on the bed spread. While in Charleston, we couldn’t pass up the chance to visit the Old Charleston Jail. This was Diane’s second visit and Kelly’s first, and we got to do an investigation there! Join us as we share the history and investigation at the 1837 Bed and Breakfast and the Old Charleston Jail! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Scott Booker and features spider webs as bandages and This Month in History features the Berlin Wall coming down.
