The Dock Street Theater once served as the Planters' Hotel. During this time, the hotel was frequented by aristocratic men and prostitutes. According to legend, Nettie Dickerson, a twenty-five year old woman, had made the desperate decision to become a prostitute. She would often meet her wealthy guests at the hotel. Eventually her reputation became known and she was ostracized within the community. One night, during a thunderstorm, Nettie stood on the rooftop of the hotel, and sought comfort in the raging storm. She was struck and killed by a lightening bolt. Her ghost is often spotted wandering the theater, looking out of place and dejected.
