Most of our stories on this page come from Tally Johnson, one of the best writers about ghosts in the state of South Carolina while others are from the site’s crew or reader submissions.
Rock House Road (Cherokee County)
This legend takes place on Rock House Road. The road is located near the Kings Mountain National Military Park. The road is home toone of the oldest homes in the county. Although the home does not sitdirectly on the road, it sits about half a mile off the road. The house was built in the early 1800′s by Henry Howser. The house is owned by the King’s Mountain Battleground and is open to the public around Thanksgiving. Howser supposedly had a mentally retarded daughter. He would lock her in the basement during the day, and let her roam around with a candle at night. One night while she was doing this, the wind blew her candle out and she died. Legend says that if you go to the Rock House at night and hold a candle to the window, you will see the girl’s face.
Booger Jim (Cherokee County)
Booger Jim haunts the Broad River and Cherokee Falls area. There are three versions of the legend I have heard. The first is said to have taken place in 1979. The legend says that Booger Jim’s wife, Becca, hung him over the side of the bridge, and if you go to the bridge and call out, “Booger Jim,” three times he will appear. I personally believe this story is false because my grandpa had heard the legend of Booger Jim a while before 1979 when he was a child. The version he had heard is that if you go through the windy roads at Cherokee Falls, Booger Jim will jump on your car. The third and final version is very similar to the second one. It says that Booger Jim would jump on your car while going down US-29 going down the hill on the Blacksburg side of Broad River.
Seven Devils Bridge (Spartanburg County)
Located in the town of Woodruff, there is a bridge that crosses over Little Ferguson Creek. The legend says that at midnight, you will start crying and screaming for no reason. Mr. Johnson went to the bridge one night at midnight, and says in his book that he had no strange encounters with a ghost. He also mentions that no one really knows why the call it Seven Devils Bridge, they just always have.
