I am a residence in Florence, been here most of my life. Its my home town and I still live here. Not once have i ever heard of the courthouse being built on an old graveyard and no graves would be left behind thats just part of a story to make it scarier, I worked in it for Halloween once and not once did that story ever come around. But the stories that did come around were one of a woman who jumped off the tower, which you can access by staircase upstairs. Another about a man who runs at you with a knife if you're walking alone at night behind the courthouse. A ghost team did come and investigate catching orbs in many of their pictures. Ive also been told personally that even the mayors dog wouldn't go down to the basement, the basement use to be a jail cell where when I worked there one Halloween we noticed baby footprints on some glass that was down there. Is it haunted? I would say so but it was never an old graveyard.

The reason why it's haunted
by: Anonymous

The reason that the old courthouse is haunted is because the old town cemetery use to be located where the Courthouse is now. The cemetery was then moved outside of the town. They only moved the marked graves so the unmarked one's where left behind. The courthouse was built on top of the old cemetery.
