Pinckneyville is an old historic ghost town located near Union County South Carolina. Established in 1791 the Town is in ruins with only a few relics left of it’s existence. Apparitions, voices, phantom vehicles, whispers,growls,screams,angry crazy backwoods locals… why not go, right? You may want to reconsider, seeing how it’s on private property and people don’t take too kindly to trespassers. The SCSI was not deterred, we set out on our journey leaving Gaffney in hopes to collect amazing data from this famous historical haunted location. The old windy country dirt road is blocked off with an intimidating gate, no trespassing signs are posted everywhere. We would not be stopped and proceeded to enter the gate and embark on a journey up the long road. Wooded area lines the road on both sides, giving way for tons of mysterious sounds of the wilderness. Our fear wasn’t spirits, but rather the locals. There are a few houses down the road and we proceed with extreme caution. After a long grueling walk we entered the historic site of Pinckneyville. We took group photos at the old courthouse marker, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We started an EVP session at what is known as the famous hanging tree, capturing nothing conclusive. We proceeded to another tree that is surrounded by an old wire gate that is said to house the grave of a Pinckneyville resident. Our recording session there also revealed no evidence of haunting. We searched for the famous Pinckneyville Cemetery but had no luck due to time restriction and buzzing sounds of the locals and trampling through the woods. We conducted research and took multiple photos at ruins all around the location, still finding no evidence of paranormal activity in the area. Despite the area’s dark feeling and the feeling of spiritual presence, in my professional opinion we did not have enough time to conclude whether the place was haunted or not. Case still open, current case status inconclusive.
