As one of few surviving structures from the colonial period, the Powder Magazine in Charleston, South Carolina has the benefit of time on its side. The structure was built in 1713 by British colonists to house guns and ammunition so that the fledgling colony could protect itself from the dangers around it. Its solid walls kept Charleston’s weapons safe for over one hundred years before being decommissioned.
It’s safe to say this building has seen a lot of action from, Indian wars and Spanish threats to French invasion and colonist insurrection. And, if you believe the local lore, it’s said that some of those who fought and died in these exchanges never left.
No historical landmark in Charleston, South Carolina, is as well-recognized as the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon at 122 East Bay Street.
From its elegantly Georgian appearance to the deeply troubled and haunted basement beneath the street level, the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon has been one building which has truly lived historic Charleston.
And, by all accounts, it continues to live in the past every day. Ghosts are said to roam its stately halls, and the startling cries of long-dead prisoners in the dungeon can still be heard.
Today, the combined Old Exchange and the Provost Dungeon is now a museum which offers daily tours from 9-5pm. If these walls could talk, the secrets we would learn . . . Well, it’s safe to say that these walls would be haunted.
This is the starting location of the tour. We will discuss the ghosts of the pirates that still haunt this location.
Here we discuss the graveyard and the city's oldest tomb.
The church, haunted by soldiers of The Revolutionary War.
