Ghosts, Folklore, Scary Stories, Legends, Myths and Monsters in North Carolina
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; the ghost of conductor Joe Baldwin, killed by a train, whose lantern light may still be seen at Maco; Boojum of Eaglenest Mountain (Eagle Nest Mountain), a sasquatch said to guard a treasure of gemstones and presumably named after Lewis Carroll's snark; the angelic warriors who battled on winged horses at Chimney Rock, confirming the truth of the War in Heaven; 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 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; Devil's Courthouse (sometimes Court House) near Brevard, where Cherokee legend asserts that Satan sits in judgment; the fierce phantom hound of Valle Crucis; and the two men and a woman, spectres, who still haunt the Thalian Hall theater in Wilmington, 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 Black Eyed Kid of Triangle Town Center in Raleigh; the phantom, filmed in 1967, seen in Wilmington's Price-Gause House; the feline, vampiristic Beast of Bladenboro; 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); the well documented but mysterious Brown Mountain lights, believed by some to be connected with UFOs and alien abductions; the duellist and the lady whose spirits haunt the New Hanover County Library in Wilmington; the Cameron Village Sewer Blob, also known as the Poop Monster; the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail; and 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, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in North Carolina.
