Enjoy a spooky meal in a haunted restaurant, visit one of our famous lighthouses humming with spiritual activity or dare to stay the night in a haunted hotel. Take the spookiness one step further than haunted houses this Halloween season and check out actual haunted sites across the Tar Heel State. From friendly apparitions to some straight-up creepy paranormal activity, some people loved North Carolina so much they never wanted to leave, even in death.
Here are eight sites across our state to explore for the most legendary and spooky ghost sightings. Ever wanted to dine with a ghost? After enjoying your meal in a cozy, vintage setting, watch where you walk near the dartboard — darts have been known to fly through the air on their own. For more local haunts, head down the street to Liberty Halla historic house and museum.
Also a fan of pranks, the Pink Lady is blamed for lights and air conditioners turning on and off, and for the rearrangement of objects in guest rooms. Book a night in room — where the Pink Lady seems to be particularly active — for your best chance at an encounter. Sometimes ghosts hang around a certain site due to unfinished business, which might be the case for both Philip and Lydia, the resident ghosts at The Biltmore Hotel.
Built by the Cone Brothers in the early s, the hotel served as their office and that of their ant, Philip. Philip died in the alley next to the hotel under mysterious circumstances, and the lore is that he was murdered for discovering financial discrepancies.
Her spirit still lingers around roomwhich is now painted pink in her honor. One of the deadliest attacks on the battleship was a Japanese torpedo strike in the hull, where five men died.
There have also been sightings of other apparitions in passageways, shadowy figures peering through portholes, hatches and doors opening and closing on their own, sounds of running and even objects being hurled through the air. For decades, a series of unexplained lights have appeared after sunset above the peak of Brown Mountain, changing in size, shape and color. Today, thousands have reported seeing the lights above the mountain. The story goes like this: Jon Avery, a former owner of the Duke Mansionbegan an affair with a young writer while his wife was institutionalized.
Despite Avery telling the woman he would always come for her, dead or alive, it became clear he was not going to leave his wife. The writer ended the affair. Devastated and desperate, Avery asked her to meet him one year later at midnight. Upholding her end of the bargain, she arrived a year later, saw him approach and reached out to grab his wrist — and her hand went right through him.
The tallest brick lighthouse in North America has quite the haunted history. The most well-known ghost story is that of the Carroll A. Deering ship, known as the Ghost Ship, that washed ashore in void of passengers or equipment. Oddly, the only items found on board were food laid out as though for a meal.
Talk about living nine lives! For self-guided climbs of this haunted lighthouse, visit from the third Friday in April through Columbus Day. Folklore says the spot is a place where the devil himself paces in a circle each night to ponder what havoc he can wreak. Seemingly going against the law of science, not a single living thing will grow in the circle — not a tree, flower, weed or blade of grass will sprout.
Thrill-seekers have traveled to the circle at night and reported that if you place an item in the circle, it will have vanished by the following morning. Shayla Martin is a Durham-based travel and food writer.
