Ghosts Of Charlotte North Carolina
Ghost Stories Of Spirit Square
The original building built at this location was originally built as a church over a hundred years ago. In 1903 it was rebuilt into the structure that exists there today. The location was taken over by the city in the late 1940s just after the war and was turned into the theater that is there today.
Now none of that would have been strange but some of the people that used the place as a church never gave it up. Its said that if you walk by on rainy nights you can hear people inside the old church building singing hymns.
People also claim to see ghosts in the building all the time. The ghost of a young girl of 13-14 is seen often in different parts of the building wearing clothes from the late 1890's era. She is seen hurrying along and looks quite solid until she walks into a wall and vanishes. She never speaks but has been seen in the building for 75 or more years.

Charlotte NC Haunted McAlpine Creek Park
McAlpine Creek Park Ghost Story
The trail has an old Mill House and a pair of human skeletons were found in the area of the Mill House. At the time they were found in the 1980s the state medical examiner who examined them said they had been there for 50 or more years. The skeletons were found under the old Mill House and a solid silver heart on a chain was around one of the skeletons necks. Once the skeletons were sent and examined by the medical examiner it was determined that it was a male and a female skeleton both in their early to mid 20's. And no one has ever discovered who they were.
People often claim to see a dark haired young man walking with a young beautiful woman with long dark hair walking near where the bridge is in the photo to your right. Some people have even told of seeing the young woman standing and staring down at a silver heart around her neck. Are they seeing the ghosts of the young couple who's skeletons were found. It is said if you approach the young couple or speak to them they vanish at once. Who were they no one may ever know. But its nice to think that they are still there in love forever and together forever.

I was working at Charter Pines Hospital at 3621 Randolph Road in Charlotte (I think its now an eye clinic) on the adolescent unit in 2010. The room at the end of the hall that overlooked the generator, had always seemed cold. This one night, we had a girl named Mary who was in that room. She kept talking about her imaginary friend who was there with her, even though she was in that room alone. We searched in the room to make sure nobody else was there. Eventually Mary was discharged. I locked that door that night and set the door alarm. (I was very conscientious about making sure the doors of empty rooms were closed and locked) Several times that night the door would open and the alarm would go off. I would make sure and lock the door back and it would happen again. The next day another young girl was admitted, who hadn't been there when Mary was, and knew nothing about Mary's imaginary friend. She came to us and reported seeing a man go in through the door to Mary's room, right through the door. Again, we searched the room and found nothing except when we turned on the air conditioner a white powder came out of the vent. Another patient the next night also claimed about seeing an old man walk through the door. I went down and told the empty room that Mary had left and had gone home, and he could find her there. Nobody ever claimed to have seen the old man, or Mary's imaginary friend ever again.

Thanks for your comment Bill. I would really love to hear more about what you know. I can be reached at thomasbyers at gmail.com. Thanks for your comment.
Bill on September 11, 2013:
I have heard many stories about McAlpine and surrounding area over the years and actually been involved in a couple. I grew up very close to the park many years before it was built. Running the woods as a child and teen I have seen many things. All I will say is there are many things unexplained. Saying that there are spirits and other creatures present is a major understatement! Don't go alone at night, I'm sure a few brave souls will take this as a challenge.do so at your own risk. Just remember many unexplained things might just need to remain unexplained! Enjoyed surfing across your sight. Brought back many old memories of childhood. Do research on Thompson, Lucas, margret Wallace. 100 yrs to present. You will be very surprised. I would not hesitate to say it might be the 2nd most paranormal area in Charlotte. If I can will share stories of McAlpine in later post. (1st in char para in my opinion us queens college).

I feel so weird doing this, but whatever. I'm a bit spiritual, comes from my mom's side since her dad was a "faith healer" and what not. Well, I go to the McAlpine trails every night and I can sense all sorts of spirits and creatures there. The mill is fairly active with something living there, and a few things around it. One time though, completely honest I did actually experience something. I was sitting down meditating, because it's the quietest place I can find, and something said "Good morning" to my friend and I. At the time, it seemed strange, but when I checked my phone it was 2:30 am. I'd suggest asking permission of the spirits before going anywhere though, because it will prevent anything too bad from happening.

I experienced something rather strange at my home in mooresville once. I was passing by a mirror one night, and I did what most people do, I casually checked out how my hair looks. But there was one problem, when you look at your reflection, it is supposed to look at you to! Mine wasn"t. It was a profile of a dark shadow. I could see no features or expression. It was one of the most bizarre things. I didn't feel afraid, just intrigued, and I haven't seen anything like it since. Perhaps it has something to do with the vicinity of water? A woman down the street from me sleepwalked off her dock one night and drowned.. Who knows
TimDeez on January 05, 2010:
There is something at McAlpine Creek - it's called kids skipping school and smoking weed. I used to do that, as well as run on the trail 3-4 times a week a couple years ago. I will admit that the place is creepy and a genuine weird feeling to it, but I was more scared of getting jumped and losing my iPod than seeing a ghost.
michelle on August 21, 2009:
ive heard a different tale about the mcalpine creek story, ive heard a cult was there and that lots of kids lived there thet were murderd cause they're used to be an orphanage near the old mill?? i wanna know more !
Phillip on July 27, 2009:
I've seen that bridge at night, never seen the ghosts but I sure have seen turtles in the water.
David on July 20, 2009:
This bridge looks like the one going into the trails from the dog park. I have walked all over this park trying to find the remains of the mill house anyone know where that is located?
Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on July 13, 2009:
It is on one of the side trails.
David on July 13, 2009:
