Poogan's Porch - Real Haunt in Charleston SC
Poogan's Porch is named after a stray dog that was adopted by the former resident of the house. Although the restaurant is named after this friendly pooch, the building has a much darker history, one that is more familiar to community members. In 1900 two sisters, Zoe and Elizabeth St. Armand resided at the house. The two sisters were incredibly close, spending the majority of their time with one another. However, in 1945, Elizabeth died, leaving Zoe despondent and depressed. She was eventually committed to St. Francis Hospital where she spent the remainder of her days. Zoe's apparition has been spotted throughout the restaurant. Her picture hangs in the restaurant, reminding staff and customers of the houses's tragic history. Zoe often goes unnoticed and she is assumed to be another guest at the restaurant. Only the most astute observers will recognize the older woman from the photograph.
