Throughout the years, residents of the city of Charleston have found themselves in situations that can’t be reasonably explained.  Being a city with a history that goes back centuries it is no surprise that there have been hundreds of accounts of ghosts and unworldly presences. Here at the Library Society we have our own spirit that has been seen on multiple occasions by librarians and interns of the Library.  Mr. William Godber Hinson (1838-1919), a major contributor to our collection is believed to be our resident ghost.  An apparition of a bearded man dressed in a suit not of this time has been seen by many of our librarians throughout the years.  As quickly as he is seen, he disappears.  Unexplained occurrences including books moving themselves off the shelves, chilling gusts that raise the hair on your neck, and an elevator moving itself from the bottom floor to the third floor with no one inside are just a few of the mysterious happenings that don’t have explanations.  Next time the lights flicker or the temperature drops know this, it could be our spirit.These items were on display in the Charleston Library Society Main Reading Room throughout the month of October, 2015.  Contact a librarian for access and reproduction at (843) 723-9912, or at asmith@charlestonlibrarysociety.orgVisit our online catalog to discover more related items of interest: http://chls-mt.iii.com/iii/encore/home?service=home
