Repost: Haunted Places

This weekend is a busy one, so I have no time to post anything new. But, I still would like to stimulate discussion so I am reposting an earlier entry hoping to create some interaction...

Every town has one. They are rooted in culture and loosely tied to faint wisps of mysterious history. Over years of telling and retelling they become more extraordinary and outlandish, but deep down they romantically tantalize our belief that there is more to this life than just this physical plane we exist within.

They are haunted places.

These locations stir fear within one's soul and defy reality by playing tricks on the rational mind. I grew up in South Carolina, which has more than its fair share of ghostly places and haunting tales. What are some of the scariest tales you have heard about your hometown or state?
