That's near Walhalla, and you can only pick him when it's raining...according to my South Carolina Ghosts book.

I'll look in my book for other places near here. We can go all over SC if you want. I tried to find Alice's grave (anybody familiar with her down in Pawley's?) and I found the cemetary but not the grave.

Shoot, if you guys are down, I'll definately go. Me and my friend Zac got big into that last summer. We went to Hell's Gates (Oakwood Cemetery) in Spartanburg a few times. Never saw much. Some strange fog is in the back every night. We tried out best to find the Seven Devil's bridge in Woodruff but we never did. We want to go to Crybaby Bridge in Gaffney.

Ooh, I love stuff like this, but all of my friends are too scared to do stuff like this. Has anyone ever been in the handicap entrance to through the basement of the Russell house? Supposedly, this used to be part of the original tunnels, but when they added the Alcohol counciling and student groups area, it cut the tunnel off. Supposedly--I was told by someone who used to walk them in the early 80s--that there was a tunnel that started at the russell house and ended at the Colisuem. The only remaining parts of it are the bridge underneath Assembly St. and this handicapped enterance I talked about. They blocked off the other side with the stairs that lead down to the fountain, but its supposedly still there.

I didn't see anyone, but the place was really cool. There was a eerie aura being down there, however. Here are some pics I dug up:



i went exploring one day in the arcade mall above that, and read about it and came back and found those pictures. apparently, that area used to be a stable...i think something like that would really thrive if they were to open that back up.

I'll have to send them a note. I love that show. They had a little mini marathon on this morning. One of the episodes was the underground rooms and tunnels under Chicago that Al Capone and other prohibition era mobsters used to transport liquor, and hold private parties safe and locked away from the police. There are exits all around that area of Chicago that the patrons would use to escape up onto the street if the police raided the bars.

found some more info......

I understand there is over 10 miles of catacombs beneath USC and the City of Columbia. I have only been inside one small portion. It begins under Capstone, runs north to Columbia, and west to Gambrell and the nearby steam (?) building on Greene Street. There are entrances: in the basement of Columbia (usually locked), an opening behind Capstone (heavy to lift with only one person), a man hole type cover in the middle of the walkway between the NAC and the Welsch Hummanity Classroom building, and through the basement of the Welsch Hummanity Classroom building (usually locked).

Well, I live in Capstone. And the buddy of mine I told you about in the PM lives in Columbia. We'll have to check these out.
