Old Exchange | Ghosts & Legends I

Old Exchange Building and Provost Dungeon, Charleston, S.C.

Isaac Hayne was imprisoned there in 1781. He was a very popular businessman, well-off, whom they led through the streets of Charleston, by his sister's home, in shackles and chains on his way to the gallows. She asked that he please come back! He responded, "I will, if I can." It is thought that he visits her there, keeping the promise he made to her that day on the way to his execution.

One more story is yet to come...
