Description

One of Charleston’s most enduring legends and ghost stories is that of Lavinia Fisher. Her ghost is said to haunt the grounds of the Old City Jail, where she was imprisoned for a year, before being hanged with her husband from the gallows, for highway robbery. She also carries the dubious title of America’s first female serial killer. But it’s not true. Much of what is known about Lavinia Fisher is legend, told for over 200 years, growing more bloody and salacious as time goes on. But her real story, is more tragic. And much more haunting.
