  There is a set of apartments located on Ashville Hwy. From the road it looks like a large house, but if you have been there or lived in them like myself  
  you know it's apartments. Anyway, I have never seen anything there, but after work one night my son and I were trying to get some sleep. It was pitch  
  dark, and there was no one else there but him and I. I heard heavy footsteps walking through my room right by our bed. The steps were so loud and steady,  
  and in pitch dark in my room that's impossible. I covered my head and tried to stay awake, but somehow I fell asleep. I'd like to know if there has been  
  other stuff happened, or if it was just me. I haven't lived there in over 17 years.

When I was younger I wrote a paper for school about Spartanburg area ghost stories. As part of my research, I toured Foster's Tavern (on Cedar Springs Road) and interviewed the owner at the time, a twenty-something year old Converse College student, who was in the line of the Foster family. Although a non-believer herself, she told me some of the popular stories about the early 19th-century inn: the sound of horse hooves galloping on the roof, voices in the attic and footsteps coming down the stairs (heard many times by her parents. ) It supposedly started when a lodger had to sleep in the attic because all the other rooms were filled. In the morning, when he had not come down for breakfast, they opened the door to find he had hanged himself and left a suicide note saying disembodied voices convinced him to do it.
 
 
Another more recent story was that her mother was in the back room giving a child a piano lesson. In the backyard there is a family burial plot with about two dozen graves. The creaking sound of the back door opening caused them both to look. Grasping the side of the door was a decomposed or at least sickly looking hand. When she got up to investigate the hand receded, and no one was seen when she looked out the door. Luckily I took notes because when I went to listen to the recording of the interview, the cassette tape was blank except for me saying ''test, test'' right before my first question. It had advanced a half hour or so, but nothing could be heard. I tried to record again on the other side, and it worked fine. I found it strange. Recent rumor has it that that girl (now in her 40s or 50s) recently was found dead in the home of natural causes.
