    Legends, Scary Stories, Folklore, Ghosts, Monsters and Myths in North Carolina

    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 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 Cameron Village Sewer Blob, also known as the Poop Monster; 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 phantom, filmed in 1967, seen in Wilmington's Price-Gause House; 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 feline, vampiristic Beast of Bladenboro; Devil's Courthouse (sometimes Court House) near Brevard, where Cherokee legend asserts that Satan sits in judgment; and the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of North Carolina.

    The spirits of appropriately named Cape Fear, including Confederate General William Whiting in Fort Fisher, south of Wilmington; the angelic warriors who battled on winged horses at Chimney Rock, confirming the truth of the War in Heaven; 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 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 duellist and the lady whose spirits haunt the New Hanover County Library in Wilmington; the headless ghost of Blackbeard the pirate who swims at Teach's Hole, Ocracoke Island; the two men and a woman, spectres, who still haunt the Thalian Hall theater in Wilmington; the pre-Columbian white tribe, descendants of Jonah, who inhabited the land near Looking Glass Rock; the well documented but mysterious Brown Mountain lights, believed by some to be connected with UFOs and alien abductions; and the fierce phantom hound of Valle Crucis, 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. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Fort Lauderdale, San Diego, Miami, Sitka, Santa Fe, Honolulu, Detroit, Minneapolis, Corpus Christi, Sacramento, St Louis, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, Fairbanks, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Dallas, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Houston, Philadelphia, Boston, Savannah, Anchorage, Skagway, San Francisco, Washington DC, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Phoenix, New York, Atlantic City and Juneau. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as The Okefenokee Swamp, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Adirondacks, the Florida Keys, the California coastline, Yosemite National Park, the Everglades, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Route 66, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Disney resorts, the Ozarks, the Grand Canyon, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Bryce Canyon, the wild west town of Tombstone, Niagara Falls, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii and Mount Rushmore. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met.
