Ghost Stories and Haunted Places in North Carolina

Some people are unreliable and will break promises. Others will do what they can to keep them, but still falter. Others, however, will go to great lengths to keep their promises. Even if it means coming back from the grave. This is the story of a ghost who keeps coming back to her lover long after he left this world. She can still be found on bright nights in Pittsboro, North Carolina.

To the mountain people of western North Carolina, superstitions are as natural as breathing. Whether it's believing that hanging the skull over a murders head will make them tell the truth, or that angels sing on a mountain after a rainstorm. They believe as they do anything else, with all their hearts. This plays heavily into this story where a murderer would've gotten away scot-free if it wasn't for a dream...

On the waters near Roanoke Island in North Carolina people claim to hear the sounds of a showboat doomed over a century ago. This is the story of 'The Queen of the Sounds' and the man brash enough to summon The Devil.

It's human nature I guess to be afraid of the things we don't understand. Most people, when confronted with a ghost would quickly turn and go the other direction. Most people would NOT invite a ghost to dinner. Yet, in this story, that is exactly what happened. Every time the owners of Cool Springs Plantation in Camden, South Carolina, had a party they would offer a glass of wine to a most unusual guest.

We all have fears. Things that, for one reason or another, wake us in the night covered in sweat. For some, it's flying. For others, it's snakes. I personally have a horrid fear of alligators (yes, crocidiles as well). One fear that crosses distance and language boundries is the fear of being buried alive. Today, we take a look at that fear head on in a story from Wilmington, North Carolina.
