Hi Greenville, City Editor Stephanie here. My favorite holiday of the year is Halloween, and I love all things scary, so my husband and I decided to take Greenville’s Paranormal Tour. The results were thrilling.
We visited 11 spots on our tour and are highlighting three of our favorites. This information is what we were told by our tour guide, Gabe. What you choose to believe is up to you.
Greenville’s Army & Navy Store, 660 S. Main St. | Legend has it that the original owner — Harry Zaglin — didn’t like change, and was unhappy when his son Jeff moved the business to Laurens Road. After he died, his spirit stayed in the original building.
The Offices at 640 S. Main St. | There have been multiple reports by an unknown woman who worked in this building saying when she walked down the stairs, a hand would reach out from under the stairs and trip her. A psychic medium studied the space and said a “creature” lives under the stairs.
Westin Poinsett Hotel, 120 S. Main St. | Before the Westin was a hotel, it was a retirement and senior living facility. There have been many creepy occurrences here, but Gabe told us about a woman who wrote him a letter saying she woke up and saw a man in a full suit standing at the foot of her bed while her husband was sleeping beside her.
