Haunted Jail

The Haunted Jail Tour

Join us for a behind the scenes tour of The Old City Jail, which housed some of Charleston’s most infamous criminals, 19th century pirates and Civil War prisoners. The Old City Jail was in operation from 1802 until 1939 and most of the building’s original structures remain intact including the cells and warden’s quarters. The Haunted Jail Tour takes you through the cells, hallways and into the places where Charleston’s worst criminals lived and died. This is one of our most popular Charleston ghost tours.

**This is quite possibly the scariest place you will ever go. The experience is NOT recommended for small children or men that cry easily.**
