Charleston SC Real Estate Blog:  The Old Charleston City Jail

Charleston SC Real Estate Blog:  The Old Charleston City Jail


The Old Charleston City Jail is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Charleston at 21 Magazine Street.  The Old Charleston City Jail was in operation form 1802 until 1939 and housed Charleston's most infamous criminals, pirates, and Union Civil War prisoners. The initial structure was built to hold approximately 126 prisoners and an addition designed by Robert Mills was completed in 1858 and was designed to hold an additional 120 prisoners.  For the life of The Old City Jail it averaged holding 500 prisoners.  The overcrowding, corporal punishment and disease lead to the unbelievable statistic that the average prisoner died within two months of imprisonment.  It is widely believed that the extraordinary high number of prisoner deaths combined with the fact that the Old City Jail was also a hospital during the Civil War have lead to the Jail's reputation for a high number of ghostly occurrences.

In 2000, the American College of the Building Arts acquired the Old City Jail after it had sat vacant for 61 year. Most of the facility's original structures remain intact. Upon acquisition, the College initiated an emergency stabilization program to meet the immediate needs of this historic property. Preservation efforts are on-going.

Access to the jail is limited, and most easily attained through Bulldog Tours' Haunted Jail Tour, which takes visitors through the cells, hallways and into the dark places where Charleston's worst criminals lived and died. Tickets for the nightly tours are available at 40 N. Market St. This tour is not recommended for children or those faint of heart.
