Old City Jail

In the heart of Charleston’s historic district lies the Old City Jail, which once housed the city’s most notorious convicts, pirates and Civil War prisoners. It was also the site for the public execution of the first US female serial killer, Lavina Fisher, who creepily wore her wedding dress in her final minutes. Our very own Ghost Adventures team investigated the ghost of Lavina Fisher at this haunted historic landmark with their signature lockdown.
