Spirits of Magnolia Cemetery Tour

Voted Charleston’s “Best Tour Company”! Ghost & History Walking Tours

Description

The Spirits of Magnolia Cemetery Tour gives you exclusive access to Charleston’s most hauntingly beautiful Victorian burial grounds.

Originally a 1790’s rice plantation, Magnolia Cemetery was founded in 1849 on the banks of the Cooper River in Downtown Charleston. Home to 35,000 permanent residents, including authors and poets, artists, Confederate generals and soldiers, prominent politicians, bootleggers, prostitutes, and socialites. Magnolia Cemetery served as a Confederate encampment to defend the city from the Union bombardment during the Civil War. Many Confederate soldiers lay at rest in Magnolia, including the eight-man Hunley crew, 2,200 soldiers who fought in the battle at Gettysburg, and six confederate generals.

This nighttime tour is the first official walking tour of the historic site, previously off limits to commercial tour companies. The 90-minute walking tours promise the best of Magnolia’s history, mystery, and spirits. You’ll hear startling stories such as an unsolved murdered socialite, an outraged politician that ordered his butler’s execution and scandalous tragedies that are never told in history books.

Don’t forget your flash cameras! You never know what phantom images you can capture.
