Ghost of The Old Stone House

Near the Granite Quarry in Rowan County stands a house made of native stone built by Michael Braun in 1766. Although Michael did in 1808, his family stayed in the house until 1904 when it was sold. In 1966 the house was sold to The Rowan Museum. As museum workers studied the house, they found old diaries from the Brauns. What lay inside shocked them, for the diaries mention a ghost.

It seems the ghost would rise out of the creek behind the house when someone was about to die. How the ghost looked would depend on how the dying person had lived their life. If they were a good person who'd lived a good life, the ghost would be white or pale. If they were a bad person, the ghost would be a dark grey or black. Obviously, the color of the ghost indicated where you were to spend eternity.

Near the house is a cemetery where Michael Braun and some of his family are buried. Some residents near the area claim they have seen balls of light rise and fall in the cemetery at night. I wonder if it's the ghosts of those who did not live good lives trying to ascend to heaven.

The area known as "The Devils Stairs" is on NC 194 about six miles north of West Jefferson in Ashe County. Near the junction of SR 1507 (or Stanley road) is a bridge that spans Buffalo Creek. To the left of the bridge is a rock formation of four near perfect stairs, each nearly twelve feet high. The formation was man made in the early 1900's for a railway. But the number of hauntings in the area g...
