Haunted Pillar

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Haunted Pillar

The market that once stood at Fifth and Broad streets was wiped out in a rare winter tornado in 1878, which some say was brought on by a curse from an evangelist who was denied permission to preach at there. The Haunted Pillar is all that’s left of the market, and it is the stuff of local legend. Try to move it or knock it down, or even touch it, some say, and you’ll die.
