A house in Charleston exhibits signs of being haunted: the rattling of chains, locked doors opening noiselessly, and a shuffling of feet.
But there was no history to explain why a ghost might linger there. One brave ghost hunter set forth to determine the truth of the haunting.
Sometimes, things are not as they seem.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
