True Ghost Stories Of Charlotte NC

Founders Hall in Charlotte NC is haunted by the ghost of a girl whose body was sold to the medical school there. It is said that the girl grieves because she knows what was done to her body. She is known to slam doors and throw things around the area where bodies used to be stored. She is also heard to scream over and over.

The Latta Plantation in Charlotte is now part of the Charlotte Parks and Recreation Department. The Latta family used to live in the Latta Plantation house and now they haunt it. There is a cane that moves around on its own. And people hear children playing in the attic when there are no children in the attic.

Spirit Square in Charlotte used to be a church for many years. And then it was purchased by the city of Charlotte in 1947. The ghosts of the people who once went to church there don't like the fact that the building is no longer a church. People now days hear Church Choirs singing in the building and see shadows of people moving around.

I live in Sneads Ferry. Near Camp LaJune. we bought an old trailer and fixed it up. This is a small trailer park. Mostly vacation homes. Only a few people live hear year round. An old lady keeps coming and sitting on my bed. She seems like shes coming to visit and is confused. Turs out this was an old farm. They grew tobacco and hay and onions because they still pop up in the spring. I think she knew the farmers that owned the land and is wanting to visit them. Before we bought this trailer the last person that lived in it was a marine. Sadly he was killed in Iraq

My old home use to scare me a lot when I was 11 it was an ice storm outside and a dark shadow was inside the house near the kitchen door I thouht that it was my mom so I called I said "MOM is that you" the shadow began walking towards me and I knew then that it was not my mother I was so scared I closed my eyes tight and went back to sleep. But when I tried I suddenly lost the ability to breathe so I got up and went to the bathroom. Crazy part is I am completely healthy and I never had asthma it freaked me out.

WNC Resident on June 10, 2011:

Cullowhee Valley School (Grades K-8) in Cullowhee, North Carolina was built on the site of a couple native american villages, dating from five hundred years ago to several thousand years ago. The site was a village multiple times, as there would be one there that would get destroyed or abandoned and the people would move elsewhere. The site was a family homestead and farm from the mid-1800s up until the 1970s. When NC 107 was relocated in the 1980s, the old farmhouse was moved across the new road to a new site. The School itself was built in 1994, with site work preparation began in the late 1980s. They discovered serious erosion issues and uncovered the site of the ancient villages during the site work, and construction was postponed for two years. When it resumed, workers noticed strange things happening, tools disappearing and doing strange, erratic things. When the school first opened, there were many reports from students and faculty of strange occurrences, including lights flickering and turning on and off by themselves, technology behaving in an erratic manner, doors opening and closing by themselves, some rooms being impossible to heat or cool, toilets flushing, and the automatic air dryers going off by themselves. During a 6th Grade Band Concert in the late 1990s, the doors inside the locker rooms slammed open and closed by themselves spontaneously. When teachers investigated, they found the contents of the rooms scattered about and nobody inside. People at the school often feel like they are being watched and many teachers who stayed after school until late at night to do work for their classes often report seeing native american people walking up or down the hallways of the school, dressed how they dressed before the settlers came. Since artifacts were returned to the building around 2000, the sightings have continued, but have decreased in intensity and frequency. I went to school there, and I can assure you that a lot of weird stuff did happen to students, parents, teachers and staff.

Amy on May 21, 2011:

real story here. Me and my family were living in a house a few years ago. After moving in started hearing and seeing things. Children laughing, footsteps when there was on one there to make them, movement on the bed when I was alone and all sorts of other REAL experiences in this house. Turns out, 50 years earlier on that EXACT same spot an old mobile home stood. A mother and her two daughters lived there and the mother was cooking on the burner on night, went outside to hang clothes on the line, turned around and the mobile home was ablaze. The little girls could be heard screaming while burning to death in the fire. Neighbors tried their best to get the little girls out of the fire but failed. The souls of those little girls are still on the property off of Old Statesville Rd. two blocks from the fire station which is just before Harris Boulevard in Charlotte, N.C. I am a true believer!!!

Camaron Elliott from San Diego on March 05, 2011:

Chelsea C on October 28, 2010:

I read this entire post, and reread the part about Charlotte many times.

I lived in Charlotte for the first two years of my life, but I can remember growing up always being there. My great grandma lived on bay street. The way we took was Old Monroe rd. until the old brick tower that firemen used for practice fires. and turned at the lumberyard.

I remember there was a railroad track about the street or so after that lumber yard. Me and my great grandma had always walked up there to pick the purple mums in the spring. She passed away the summer before my 7th birthday; my family sold her house in charlotte.

The summer of 8th grade, I wanted to ride by the old house, just to see it for the memories. So, my grandma and grandpa took me up there, we didn't stop just slowed down so i could see the house. When leaving the area, we took the road that would take parallel to the train tracks. I looked to the left when we passed by, and saw my great grandma standing there. I made eye contact with a family member who meant so much to me who i knew was gone. I felt like i was going insane in the backseat of a car. The ride home I can remember staring out the window, I didn't talk to my grandparents or anything. When we finally got back to the house (in monroe) I let them go inside first, I think i just wanted to sit alone for a moment. After they had gone inside, I just sat. i couldn't move any part of my body, I can remember I felt like my chest wasn't moving but I knew i was breathing. Then I felt really cold. Like I had stepped inside of a deep freezer and then out in the sun to thaw. I looked to my right and Nanny (my great grandma) was sitting beside me. I could smell the butterscotch candy on her breath she was so close. She handed me the biggest mum I think i've ever seen, and said "it'll be okay" and she was gone.

I put that mum inside my bible when i finally walked inside. It now hangs in a frame along with the other mums that we picked while she was living.

Yes I to am a believer as I and other family members have always been able to see things that others either don't see or they simply ignore. I was in a haunted house just the other night during a thunderstorm and the paranormal activity was quite high.

judyann1984 from Vearnal Utah on April 11, 2009:

I love to hear about hauntings. I love to read about them and my favorite show is Ghosthunters. I have had a few hauntings of my own and I am definitely a believer.
