Battery Carriage House Inn
Charleston, South Carolina
Found among the colorful houses of the Charleston waterfront, this 1843 Neoclassical house survived the Civil War siege of Charleston to be renovated later in the Second Empire style. Now the inn embraces its dark side and calls itself "Charleston's Most Haunted Inn," as guests have seen a headless torso in Room 8 and a calming, shadowy male presence deemed the "Gentleman Ghost" in Room 10. The former is possibly a casualty of the Civil War and the latter perhaps an early-20th-century owner's son who threw himself from the roof to end his life.
