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 duellist and the lady whose spirits haunt the New Hanover County Library in Wilmington; 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 headless ghost of Blackbeard the pirate who swims at Teach's Hole, Ocracoke Island; 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 two men and a woman, spectres, who still haunt the Thalian Hall theater in Wilmington; the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail; the ghost of conductor Joe Baldwin, killed by a train, whose lantern light may still be seen at Maco; the spirits of appropriately named Cape Fear, including Confederate General William Whiting in Fort Fisher, south of Wilmington; and Boojum of Eaglenest Mountain (Eagle Nest Mountain), a sasquatch said to guard a treasure of gemstones and presumably named after Lewis Carroll's snark, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in North Carolina.
