I mean, it’s October everyone! We HAVE to hit on this topic!
So, are there real haunted houses in the Upstate? If you grew up in this area, I’m pretty sure you’ve probably heard all kinds of stories. And, I’m definitely not here to state if any of them are true or false.
But, sometimes when you hear certain things, you do question these things – right?
With that said, I’m going to leave the question of “are there real haunted houses” completely up to you.
But, I am going to share with you some places here in the Upstate that if you have never gone near them, and you’re intrigued by that kind of stuff – you might want to check them out.
First up is Oakwood Cemetary in Spartanburg. During the late 1800’s, this cemetary became the final resting place for convicts as well as people without families. There’s even a separate Children’s Graveyard – which has had reports of people seeing children running through it and heard voices.
Rosehill Plantation in Union. This was an actual plantation built in 1827. It’s known as one of the most haunted places not only in South Carolina, but in the world!
Greenville’s Tuberculosis Hospital in Greenville. The actual building burnt down in 2003, but the basement of the building still resides under Herdklotz Park. After it was a tuberculosis hospital, the building was used as an insane asylum. It’s said you can still hear screams, slamming doors and other noises at night while standing in the park.
Poinsett bridge in Greenville is possibly one of the oldest bridges in the Southeastern US. During the day, the bridge is simply a secluded pathway. At night however, many experience times when electrical devices will completely stop working.
The Tanning Yard in Fairforest. This area is now the Adidas plant. People that visit this area tend to have feelings of sadness, dread and despair – especially when they’re near the railroad tracks.
Now, of course I’m not giving you permission to trespass – especially if it’s an area which is private property. However, some of these you could take a walk or a drive – especially if you have an interest in seeing what you might experience.
