Poogan’s Porch is located in Charleston, South Carolina.
Founded in 1670, the port city was a central part of British colonization. Over the years, it has seen the effects of the Revolution, the slave trade, and the Civil War. Many lives have been lost within the city. It’s no surprise that Charleston is a hot-bed of eerie activity.
Poogan’s Porch was originally built as a stately home on Queen Street in 1888. It was part of an emerging neighborhood of single-family homes. Over the years, it’s believed that a variety of families took residence in the home. However, none of these residents are more famous than Zoe St. Amand.
Though Zoe didn’t reside at her home when she died, many believe that her spirit still lives on there. She had such a deep connection to the home that it’s likely that her ghost returned there after her death at the St. Francis Hospital. Both restaurant diners and staff members have had eerie sightings that simply can’t be explained.
Zoe and her sister Elizabeth’s strong connection didn’t end with their deaths. Their bond lived on and it’s believed that Zoe is still very much mourning her sister’s passing before her. She never got over the nine years that she had to live alone without her best friend.
Zoe’s spirit has been desperately searching for her beloved sibling. It’s believed that she has been wandering her old home, perilously yearning for her sister like she did after Elizabeth’s death so many years ago. Even reverting back to her old habits of aimlessly wandering while calling out her name.
