Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger: Local Ghost Stories & Superstitions

October 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am

The Horry County Museum and The AVX Foundation present a program by Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger on Saturday, October 26th, on local ghost stories and superstitions.

Celebrate Halloween with local author and storyteller Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger as she weaves together superstitions and tales from Lucas Bay to Georgetown and the Lowcountry. Hear about the Revolutionary British soldier who died on the stairs in Georgetown, and another British soldier who lost his head in Wedgefield and still searches for it today. Learn the antebellum stories of the Young Plantation on the north shore of Winyah Bay, the Grey Man of Pawleys Island, the Witch of Pawleys and Dr. Tucker of Litchfield and hear Lowcountry superstitions, including one that relates to playing the fiddle.

Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger, author of Ghosts of Georgetown, More Ghosts of Georgetown and Georgetown Mysteries and Legends, is a storyteller, historic reenactor and living historian. Her recent portrayals include 18th-century Harriott Pinkney Horry in Tea with Harriott Horry at Hampton Plantation and 19th-century Margaret Hamilton Seabrook Rutledge in Presenting My Colonel and His Lady at McClellanville. She has been Lady Elizabeth, PIRATING with the Charlestown Few, a pirate crew, at the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show.

Elizabeth is active in martial arts, fiddling, kayaking and sewing historic clothing. Many Friday evenings she can be found in Georgetown’s Historic District, lantern in hand, leading her walking ghost tour, Ghosts of Georgetown Lantern Tours (information can be found at www.ghostsofgeorgetown.com).

The program will begin at 10 AM in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
