The grave marked Alice at All Saints Cemetery near Pawleys Island. While long-rumored to be the plot of Alice Flagg, that myth has been debunked. The plot is a popular spot for visitors attempting to summoning her in the historic cemetery.

A mid 1800s forbidden romance led to the secret engagement of Alice Flagg and her star-crossed lover. After becoming ill, Alice’s disapproving brother tore the hidden engagement ring from a ribbon tied around her neck. Now, Alice Flagg is said to haunt her grave at the historic Hermitage in Murrells Inlet... or is it her grave at All Saints Church?

On this episode of South of Spooky, hosts AT Shire and Gavin Jackson investigate the story and ask the question, "Where in the world is Alice Flagg?"
