Ghosts of Georgetown Lantern Tours

Elizabeth Huntsinger and sometimes her husband, Lee, lead Ghosts of Georgetown Lantern Tours each Friday – and other days, by appointment. Donning traditional pirate costumes or Civil War uniforms, tour guides bring a touch of whimsy and history to their phantasmic tours. Huntsinger, the author of three books about the ghosts and legends of Georgetown, spark tour-goers’ imaginations on visits to locations throughout the city. One of her favorites is the Winyah Indigo Society Hall on Screven Street. Society members enjoyed the hall only briefly before it was used as a hospital during the Civil War, and, eerily, it’s been haunted ever since.
