Prior to the Revolutionary War, ten parishes were established in this coastal area of South Carolina that linked the important towns such as Savannah and Charleston. One of these was St. Bartholomew’s Parish (now Colleton County). Chapels of Ease were constructed so families who lived far from main parish churches could gather and attended services. The Pon Pon Chapel of Ease was located on Parker’s Ferry Road a stagecoach route between Charleston and Savannah. This patch of land has seen warfare and bloodshed for hundreds of years so it’s not strange that it’s has a reputation for being haunted.
