Charlotte - Founders College - Founders Hall - is haunted by a girl whose corpse was sold to the medical school here.

Charlotte - Latta Plantation - The Latta Family used to live in the Latta Plantation. It's now a historic site, and is haunted by the family. Frequently during tour, strange things happen, like the tourist would hear kids playing in the attic, running around. One time during a tour, the tour guide had introduced the tourist a cane, that was used by one of the members of the family, and all of a sudden it started moving as if a spirit was walking on it, and it then fell on the ground. Occurrences happened when employees are in the house alone, doors would slam shut. Shadows are seen every now and then as well.

Charlotte - Loonis McGlohan Theatre (Spirit Square) - The original building in this location was constructed in the late 1800's, as a church. In 1903 it was rebuilt into the structure, which exists there today. The church was taken over by the city, in the 1940's or early 1950's, and renovated into a theatre. Now, almost 100 years later, you can hear people walking around in the Church/Theatre when the facility is closed. As well, a few of the employees have noted that sometimes when they are working in the sub-basement, they can hear faint singing coming from above them.

Charlotte - McAlpine Creek Park - Trail - Walk this trail at night by yourself......Its right beside Independence road. The trail has an old mill house, it is said that a skeleton was found under the mills house bell. (Bring a flashlight, and something to protect yourself because there IS something in this trail.)

Charlotte - North West Middle School - It is said that the school is haunted by a ghost of a girl named Sadie from the 1950's. They say that she spent a lot of time at the school because her Father was a mean drunk and always beat her. One afternoon, she came home late and her Father came after her and she took off down the street. Since she felt safe at the school, she tried to go there, but while crossing the street in front of the school, she got hit by a car and died. They say since she felt safe at the school, her spirit stayed in the school. You can hear banging on the pipes and desks will rattle and bathroom stall doors will open and close by them selves. If you’re in the auditorium, you can look back to the attic window where the projector is and you can see something moving around up there. If you go by the stairs leading to the attic, you get chills on the back of your neck as if to warn you not to go up there.

Charlotte - Queens College - Albright - There is a ghost of a heartbroken girl whose parents found out about her relationship with another woman who committed suicide in a girl's dorm. Her knocking and door closing and opening has scared several reliable witnesses.

Charlotte - Queens College - Court Yard - well if you go out into the quart yard at certain times in the night you can see the swaying motion of a hung body and you can hear faint screams now and then. Apparitions have been seen of Civil War-era soldiers.

Charlotte - Queens College - Wallace - Residents have also experienced poltergeist-like activity and cold spots in a corner room of Wallace dorm. - December 2006 Update: a former resident reports: a banging noise in the room, like metal being banged together. Also, other students have heard sounds of papers being dropped in the room. If you stand right outside of the room it is very warm.

China Grove - South Rowan High School - their have been pictures taken in the auditorium with some kind of white figure or light.

Concord - Concord Middle School - The middle school is a new building that has only been around since 2000-2001. The location was moved from an older building built in the early 1920's now used as a center for students who are disruptive or for other reasons cannot participate in a normal classroom environment to another building located on Gold Rush Dr. off of Neisler Rd. Teachers and other staff at the school have reported hearing footsteps in the halls at night when no one else is in the building. There are also reports of the sound of doors slamming shut when there is no possible explanation for this, although no doors have ever been seen shutting on their own. Also reports of strange sounds in auditorium. One faculty member working in the office late one night heard sounds coming from the hallway. She high-tailed it on out of there. No theories about the cause of the occurrences. Interestingly, though, everything started after a Catholic priest was brought in to perform an exorcism in the media center in 2001

Concord - Piney Grove Church - An abandoned church, that was left with everything still there... There is a graveyard in the back, and I have seen things; things walking around in the cemetery, there is also said to be 4 spirits in the church.

Concord - Sally's Bridge - Sally's Bridge is an old bridge off Poplar Tent Road. A young high school girl and her baby were driving here one night in the rain and ran into a creek. Sally could not find her baby, but they both died eventually. If you stop on the bridge, she will do anything she can to get you to help her find her baby. People have reported a frantic looking woman knocking on car doors and trying to open car windows.

Concord - The Old Court House Theater - The Theater used to be in the old courthouse but it was moved to an old church. The ghost there is called the "Deacon" he basically moves things around.

Concord - Winecoff Elementary School - In the old building where the 5th grade hall was is a ghost of a long dead football player. The school was at one time a 1st thru 12th grade school. The 5th grade hall use to be used by the football players many years ago. It's said that after a football game the player came back to this part of the school and had a heart attack and died. He haunted the 5th grade hall behind the gym until the school was torn down to build the new school back in 1995 or so. He doesn't do anything. You see him walking down the hall, then he slides down the wall and disappears.

Cabarrus County - Mt. Pleasant - Cline School- On Cline School Road very late at night, 3a.m or so, you can see a man walking down the road on your right side, regardless of which way you are going. If you get out he'll dissapear.


Gastonia - Brookside elementary - Strange noises from the woods on the Auten Rd. side have been reported several times as well as sightings of movement from inside the school late at night.

Gastonia - Lincoln Academy - Lincoln Academy used to be a all girls school one night a gang of boys took a girl who went to school there tied her up to a oak tree, then raped and disemboweled her. some say if you go there do not stop on the bridge because your car will turn off and not start. Plus reports of a presence felt late at night and smoke going in a left and right direction instead of a up motion.

Gastonia - Spencer Mountain - There is a mansion located at the end of the road. It was built in the late 1700's. No one has ever lived in the house. This lady that owned Pharr yarns built it for her grandson. He died shortly after she built it. Since he died she said no one could live in it. The town has since tried to make it a haunted house and the proceeds go to the local fire department. Rumor is 2 men and a woman haunt it. People that work upstairs have seen and heard stuff to where they have ran out the house white as a ghost and breathing as though someone was trying to kill them. They have reported seeing a woman upstairs holding a baby's head in one hand and another head in the other. People have been going downstairs and heard someone following them and turned around to see no one. Also reports of pictures in one of the upstairs room just fall off the wall as if someone was knocking them off. - Fair Warning, you most likely will be charged to go though it.


Huntersville - Mcoy road - a trailer on Mcoy road is said to be haunted by a man who died in the living room floor. Lights flicker on and off, doors open and close, and in the back room of the trailer you can feel a cold presence moving around. ( I do not know which trailer it may be)


Kannapolis - Maple Street - A man was brutally murdered on the streets and every so often they can still here the screams of the man yelling.

Kings Mountain - Kings Mountain State Park - Numerous reports of "ghostly" men upon horseback riding through the historic battleground section of the park. Personal investigation has found knocking on the doors of the public restroom; two human-shaped apparitions in Camp York portion of the state park.

Kings Mountain - Oak Grove - during the time of the revolutionary war a tavern was located at a crossroads' now the intersection of Oak Grove and Stoney Point roads, the legend is that a British soldier carrying stolen plans was in route to warn the British as he stopped at the tavern for a rest he was identified as a Brit and killed by the inn keeper, and on moonlit nights you can see him at the crossroads, he always looks confused, as you try to approach he disappears.

I love these stories, fun thread! I've heard a lot of those stories, but I never get lucky enough to see any ghosts.

I hear that the bell tower at the NC School of the Deaf in Morganton is haunted. You can sometimes see a girl looking down from there.

I'm sorry but I just had to laugh when I read this one...you walk anywhere near Independence Blvd at night and you had better bring something to protect yourself.

Talking about ghost. Anybody catch the show on the Discovery channel called A HAUNTING? Supposed true stories of actual hauntings. The people who claim to have had these experiences do show their faces to the camera in almost all of the shows. It seems to lend some credibility to what they claim. I really enjoy how the show begins each week, its done with a style that will get your attention just by the sound of the narrators voice.

Monroe - The Blakney House - The old Blakney House is located on Franklin St. Believed to be haunted by William Blakney, a greedy miser who has hidden his fortune somewhere in the house. There is also rumored talk about a girl, perhaps related to Blakney, who watched her parents get run over from the upstairs window. The house was first renovated and remodeled about 15 years ago to house a privately owned "Boswell's Restaurant." Prior to the remodeling, neighborhood kids were told not to go around the house, but that might have been just adults against trespassing. Once the restaurant opened, employees began to report strange things, such as dishes (entire cabinets full) relocated, tables being moved, and other odd anomalies. One account, involved a luncheon on the 2nd floor in one of the reserve rooms. Only two people were at the restaurant (it didn't open until lunch) and they set up elaborate place settings for the luncheon. As they went downstairs to start preparing further, loud crashes and bangs were heard from the upstairs. Using the slave staircase (it's that old), which is the only way to get up to that part of the house when it's locked, they found the entire banquet room had been ransacked. When you try to go upstairs, you get a very unsettling feeling - the feeling of "I don't want to go up there at all." No business, restaurant or otherwise, has been successful at the Blakney house, or at least no business ever stays there for very long. The business located there today makes a point of closing before dark, as they are afraid to be in the building for "when the fun begins."

Mooresville - Brawley middle school - It is said that this school has a history that goes a good ways back. It has relocated from where it was originally established...but mysteries still surround the sightings that many have witnessed there ....But it is said that an employee of the school ,died of a heart attack. The library especially was said to be haunted by a older lady...some nights the lights would come on in the school untimely. Students of the past have said to have seen someone on the second floor hallway..(the school has since been remodeled)


Troutman - Shinville graveyard - there is supposedly a witch buried in this graveyard. there have been numerous sightings of a woman standing among the tombstones and if you stop the car she will look toward you and then vanish.
