Destination Charleston: Explore the Darkside of The Holy City
Goodbye summer, and hello fall! We are officially in the spooky season when ghost stories, history, and ghastly specters come together for a nightly romp on Meeting Street (Pun intended). The Lantern has visited some of the most haunted sites across South Carolina over the years, but nothing takes your breath like walking the cobblestone streets of the Holy City. In this special edition, we will highlight the best paranormal hotspots across the city that will freeze you in fear and in time.
This Tiny Town in South Carolina is Redefining Small-Town Southern Charm
The Lantern found the definition of small-town southern charm on a recent visit to Ridgeway, South Carolina. This beautiful, peaceful community in Fairfield County gives visitors plenty of opportunities to explore rich southern history firsthand. Many may not be aware, but Ridgeway is also home to the "World’s Smallest Police Station" and other hidden gems. The town is picturesque for its beautiful historic structures and walkable downtown area.
“World’s Smallest Police Station” Calls this South Carolina Town Home
Tell Andy and Barney to move over! We have found a police station smaller than Mayberry. Beautiful Ridgeway, South Carolina, is the home to the “World’s Smallest Police Station.” According to the pamphlet placed inside, “Imagine an old wooden desk, small file cabinet, a black rotary phone, and a small wood stove to keep warm on those cold wintery nights in this historic building. But before the “World’s Smallest Police Station” became a police station in 1940, it was the town well. The area behind the police station is known as the Cotton Yard. It’s called this because it was used as a staging area for cotton farmers bringing their cotton into town to be loaded on the train for shipment. Before farmers would leave town, they would pull their wagons up the well to water their mules and oxen. Some residents can remember when cotton farmers were lined up from the cotton gin, located in the building behind Ruff Hardware, south on Palmer Street over the railroad bridge.”
Whitechapel Horrors Continue: Annie Chapman's Violent End
Whitechapel, London, September 8, 1888 Amidst the smog-covered streets of Whitechapel, another tragic and gruesome discovery has shaken the heart of East London. On the morning of September 8, 1888, At around 6:00 am the mutilated body of a woman, later identified as Annie Chapman, was found in the backyard of 29 Hanbury Street. The shocking state of Miss Chapman's body has left the community reeling. Much like the brutal killing of Mary Ann Nichols just over a week prior, Chapman's injuries suggest a ferocity that has residents living in fear and authorities scrambling for answers. Eyewitnesses recount a sense of disbelief at the scene. John Davis, the man who made the ghastly discovery, seemed shaken to his core, while local constables immediately cordoned off the area. Authorities, hesitant to provide explicit details, have confirmed that the victim's injuries were consistent with a sharp instrument, potentially a knife. The heinous nature of this crime has fuelled existing rumors and whispers throughout the city. With two savage killings in such a short span, many now fear that a serial murderer is at large. The epithet "Jack the Ripper" is being increasingly used in hushed conversations in pubs and homes, a name synonymous with the faceless terror haunting the streets. Police are urging the public to remain vigilant and cautious. Women, especially those living and working in the Whitechapel area, are advised to be wary of their surroundings and avoid venturing out alone at night. There's also been a growing clamor for better policing and lighting in the East End, with many residents feeling that the destitution and darkness of Whitechapel's alleys provide the perfect cover for nefarious activities. Yet, amidst the palpable fear, there is also a sense of unity growing within the community. Whitechapel, though marred by these unspeakable acts, remains resilient, with neighbors looking out for one another in the hopes that such horrors will soon come to an end. The investigations continue, and as Londoners await more news, there is a shared hope that justice will be served swiftly. The identity and motives of the so-called "Ripper" remain elusive, casting a dark shadow over a city yearning for answers.
