About The Mills House

What is the history of The Mills House? Is it haunted?
Opened in 1853, The Mills House Wyndham Grand Hotel is a stunning landmark in Charleston's Historic District. With its storied past and Southern charm, this historic hotel is within steps of the Old City, famous historic sites, like King Street, and Charleston's top ghost tours. According to local lore, this grand hotel has a haunted past. Supposedly you can sight a woman from the 19th century in a purple dress between 11 PM and 1 AM in the rear lobby - a phantom from when the hotel helped burn victims in the 1800s after a major fire consumed much of the city. Whether the hotel has apparitions, it is the timeless essence of Charleston luxury and grace.
