    Unitarian Church in Charleston
    Stop: 90 minutes
    The highlight of Tour Charleston's Ghosts of Charleston Tour is entering the lush, spellbinding Unitarian Church Graveyard built in 1772. Real time hauntings occur only a handful of times a year. However, since 1996, when we started what is now Charleston's oldest ghost tour, spirits in the Unitarian Church Graveyard have reached out to many people on our tour in visual, tactile and auditory ways.

What to Expect
Your Charleston ghost tour meets near the city center. Set out with your guide as you stroll, and bring a small flashlight for ease of navigation. Try your best not to get scared as you listen to stories about ghosts, and the city’s eerie past. Go by buildings, squares, and landmarks where former city residents used to hang out, and if you’re careful, you might notice that they’re still there—in spirit. The main highlight of your tour is a trip to the Unitarian Church Graveyard, which is known by locals to be haunted by people who have been buried there in tombs or graves. This graveyard isn't open at night, but your tour gives you special evening access to explore. Your tour ends at the departure point. Make sure to check in with your guide before you part ways if you aren’t familiar with the area.

Fun to try but not as spooky as I'd hoped. Lots of good historical information, though, and Austin, our guide, was quite pleasant.

Austin was a fantastic guide. Highly recommend a night walking through the streets of Charelston, listening to rich spooky history! The walk was probably less than a mile, with frequent stops for stories. The graveyard was very creepy! You are allowed to take pictures and ask

Tour was a lot of fun- our guide Austin was very knowledgeable. ( and has the best southern accent we’ve ever heard. ) the ending was perfect... gave you a proper eerie feeling just walking around this overgrown cemetery. Thanks!
