Dock Street Theater

Charleston, South Carolina

It was originally called Planter’s Inn. In the early 1800’s it was recognized as the finest hotel anywhere in the south. Presidents and dignitaries from around the world graced it’s halls. Later to become the Dock Street Theater, many still grace it’s halls. Among the most intriguing and often sighted is a beautiful lady with flaming red hair. Actress, hotel patron, or “soiled dove”? No one knows. Her identity is lost to history. She is always seen on the upper levels of the theater. Junius Booth, the father of John Wilkes Booth, is reported to haunt here as well.
