The Haunted Dock Street Theater in Charleston, SC

The historic Dock Street Theater is the oldest performance theater in the US.

And it’s full of plenty of spirts.

Originally built in 1734 as a theater the old building burnt down and was rebuilt again as the Planter’s hotel.

The Planter’s was a hopping spot amongst the wealthily business men in Charleston.

The hotels popularity was mainly due to party atmosphere and the ladies of the night that frequented its halls.

Nettie Dickenson was one of those ladies of the night that often frequented the old Planter’s Inn.

In her youth she was the beautiful and a popular choice of the rich gentleman.
