Ghostly Tales and Legends along the Grand Strand of South Carolina

( 1 )

Overview

As one of the most popular vacation spots in the world, the Grand Strand sparkles with life and activity. Yet beneath the sparkle, there are cryptic shadows-a chair that rocks by itself, perhaps moved by the spirit of a young man who took his own life after his love spurned him; a flickering light in the window of an abandoned house, a beacon to guide home a captain lost at sea before the Civil War; a monument cursed by an old woman accused of witchcraft.

Overview

As one of the most popular vacation spots in the world, the Grand Strand sparkles with life and activity. Yet beneath the sparkle, there are cryptic shadows-a chair that rocks by itself, perhaps moved by the spirit of a young man who took his own life after his love spurned him; a flickering light in the window of an abandoned house, a beacon to guide home a captain lost at sea before the Civil War; a monument cursed by an old woman accused of witchcraft. Ghost hunters consider the area from Murrells Inlet to Georgetown one of the most haunted regions on the East Coast. Blanche W. Floyd has collected the tales that intrigue and frighten locals and tourists alike. From the well-known Murrells Inlet apparition, Alice of the Hermitage, to the ghosts that frequent Old Gunn Church, the Grand Strand teems with legends of pirate treasure and lost Indians, of fierce battles and killer storms, and spirits unwilling or unable to leave the Grand Strand.

Author Biography: Blanche W. Floyd has lived in Myrtle Beach since 1950. She writes a column for The Sun News, and her articles have appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers. Her other books include Tales along the Grand Strand of South Carolina and Tales along the King's Highway of South CarolinA.
