Annies Inn, Bed and Breakfast

3083 Charleston Hwy.,Montmorenci

Montmorenci is a beautiful little town along a railroad bed with a ghostly past. A well regarded Bed and Breakfast, Annie's Inn, is at the heart of this tale. The house has stood since the 1830's when it was a 2000 acre cotton plantation. Originally it had three stories, but a cannonball destroyed the third floor during the Civil War. Later, a doctor used it as his residence and hospital. During that era, the ghost of a little girl has been occasionally heard calling for her mama.
