A Spooky Backdrop

Why Charleston for Halloween?

Charleston is known as the “Holy City,” and it’s true. It has more churches per square capita than any other American city.

Nevertheless, there's the city’s not-so-holy past. Hidden behind the layers of civility, carriage tours and genteel southern manners, is a city rife with violence, scandal and death.
