Ghosts and Legends: Haunted Grave


* Please note: This ghost story is not recommended for all audiences due to mature subject matter.

The Old Stone Church was established in the 1780s by Andrew Pickens. In the cemetery, there is a grave on which no plants will grow--not even dandelions! The woman who is buried there was from the Midlands, but the circumstances of her death made her unwelcome at home, so her grave was placed in the Old Stone Church cemetery. Lightning has been attracted to the gravestone and has shattered it where her name is engraved. The grave has been hard to maintain, and flowers planted there almost every year do not make it through the summer. It is believed that she is either a witch or a ghost, and stones are often placed on top of the grave to hold her within the grave.
