Poogan's Porch; Charleston, SC

The Charleston police have received so many calls about a distressed woman dressed in black trapped inside this upscale Southern restaurant that authorities disregard new reports. The woman is believed to be the ghost of Zoe St. Armand, who owned the house in the early 1900s and went mad after the death of her sister, her only friend. Legend has it that Zoe fell down the stairs to her death while fruitlessly searching for her sister one night. "Occasionally you can see her looking for her sister in the front dining room," says assistant general manager Terell Ham. The restaurant's namesake, a Wheaton Terrier named Poogan who died in 1979, is also rumored to still run through the dining room. "Little children say they feel Poogan running under the table," Ham says.
