The Ghost of Litchfield Plantation

The Litchfield Plantation is a bed and breakfast on South Carolina's Pawleys Island where guests can go and relax. However, a former owner of the plantation is known to come back and disturb the rest of the guests. This is the story of Dr. Henry Tucker and his desire to home home..

Back when the gates of Litchfield were made of wood and not iron, it was owned by a kind doctor named Henry Tucker. When he was finished visiting a patient or coming back from a horse ride he would ring the bell outside of the gates of Litchfield. This would signal a gatekeeper who lived nearby to let Tucker in.

Sometimes the gatekeeper would slip away and Dr. Tucker would ring the bell furiously to no answer. He would then tie his horse to the fence and climb over to walk to the house where, if it was late, he would use a private staircase to avoid disturbing his family.

Long after the doctor's death people claimed to see him on the stairs walking up to his room. Some would hear the sound of a horse trotting up the lane towards the main house. Others would hear the clanging of the bell at all hours of the night as though the doctor was trying to get the gatekeepers attention. It was this sound that caused one owner to remove the bell entirely to prevent the doctor from disturbing his slumber.

So if you pass Litchfield Plantation late at night or on a gray, rainy day and see a bay tied near the gate, perhaps the good doctor coming home yet again.

So, that being said, I'm going to try and retell a story in the third person that was told in the first person. This story comes from both a reliable source and a source who, by his own admission, liked to exaggerate the things he's heard. A ...
