Scary Stories, Folklore, Legends, Monsters, Myths and Ghosts in North Carolina
The ghost of conductor Joe Baldwin, killed by a train, whose lantern light may still be seen at Maco; the Black Eyed Kid of Triangle Town Center in Raleigh; the well documented but mysterious Brown Mountain lights, believed by some to be connected with UFOs and alien abductions; the Cameron Village Sewer Blob, also known as the Poop Monster; the fierce phantom hound of Valle Crucis; the feline, vampiristic Beast of Bladenboro; the burning ghost ship seen near Ocracoke Island, a spectral reminder that a ship's crew murdered their passengers for gold and then destroyed the evidence; the phantom, filmed in 1967, seen in Wilmington's Price-Gause House; the duellist and the lady whose spirits haunt the New Hanover County Library in Wilmington; and the musical water sprite in the pools of the French Broad River, east of Asheville, who dooms those it lures, not indifferently like the lorelei but with the deliberate malevolence of a siren, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of North Carolina.
The headless ghost of Blackbeard the pirate who swims at Teach's Hole, Ocracoke Island; the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail; the spirits of appropriately named Cape Fear, including Confederate General William Whiting in Fort Fisher, south of Wilmington; the pre-Columbian white tribe, descendants of Jonah, who inhabited the land near Looking Glass Rock; the two men and a woman, spectres, who still haunt the Thalian Hall theater in Wilmington; Boojum of Eaglenest Mountain (Eagle Nest Mountain), a sasquatch said to guard a treasure of gemstones and presumably named after Lewis Carroll's snark; Devil's Courthouse (sometimes Court House) near Brevard, where Cherokee legend asserts that Satan sits in judgment; the face that appears if you gaze into a spring of the Great Balsam Mountains, which may not be your own but the hideous visage of a Cherokee woman, cursed by a manitou because of her flirtatiousness; the angelic warriors who battled on winged horses at Chimney Rock, confirming the truth of the War in Heaven; and not Dracula but Jutaculla (Judaculla), a slant-eyed giant that dwells in the caves of Devil's Courthouse and/or Tanasee Bald (Tannasee Bald) in the appropriately named Transylvania County (Tanasee Bald extends into Haywood County, where the bigfoot-like Boojum prowls), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in North Carolina.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Lake Tahoe, Skagway, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Santa Fe, Detroit, Phoenix, Miami, Albuquerque, Savannah, Sitka, St Louis, Boston, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, Atlantic City, Los Angeles, Houston, Fairbanks, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Anchorage, Sacramento, Dallas, San Diego, Indianapolis, Corpus Christi, Seattle, New York, Chicago, Honolulu, Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco, Juneau and Atlanta are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rainier National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Yosemite National Park, the Appalachians, the Everglades, the California coastline, Bryce Canyon, the Florida Keys, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Adirondacks, Mount Rushmore, Glacier Bay National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Disney resorts, rodeos, Route 66, the Ozarks and Yellowstone National Park.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Good luck on your travels.
