Haunted North Carolina: Ghosts and Strange Phenomena of the Tar Heel State


North Carolina is rich in Native American, Colonial, and Civil War history, and this heritage brings stories of ghosts and creatures from coastal tidewater to the western mountains. Readers will encounter the spirit of infant Virginia Dare in the form of a white deer, shipwreck survivors guided by ghosts to safety, a Halifax County reverend’s encounter with the Devil, phantom marauders at Hannah’s Creek Swamp, the spirit who directed his will from the grave, hauntings in the State Capitol, and mysterious figures at Devil’s Stairs.
