About The Haunted
The most disturbing tour in Charleston is the Haunted Jail Tour. This behind-the-scenes look at the infamous Old City Jail is one of Bulldog’s most popular sightseeing excursions. You will hear stories of tragic events, mystery, and the macabre as you tour the jail that housed the city’s heinous criminals from 1802 until 1939. Prisoners included 19th-century buccaneers, Civil War prisoners, and horse thieves who lost an ear for their offenses.

In 1738, the first buildings constructed on the Charleston site served as a slave workhouse, a hospital for the indigent, and the city jail. Punishment for serious offenses included shackling, whipping, and starvation. Some inmates were branded, drawn and quartered, and burned at the stake. The jailer punished horse thieves by nailing their ears to a pole. Prisoners were released when the jailer severed their ears. The grounds were the site of numerous executions, including the country’s first female serial killer. In 1820, Lavinia Fisher and her husband were hanged for poisoning and robbing guests who stayed at their hotel.
