Foster’s Tavern-Spartanburg, South Carolina

A private residence now, this home began as a lodge and tavern in 1808. Construction of the home began in 1801 and is built with handmade bricks. It was a well-known stagecoach stop, and it was the last stop before people would head to the Glenn Springs resort town.

As a kid growing up in Spartanburg, there were always stories of this place being haunted. As an adult, I don’t believe in the existence of ghosts, but I remember peering out the car windows and looking up at the house to see if a ghost would appear. I never saw one, but I had many friends who claimed they did.

The home is in amazing condition which is a testament to the people who built this home. Another remarkable aspect of this home is that it has been continuously occupied since 1808. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
