Haunted Universities in North Carolina

Did you know the College and Universities that you sent your son and daughter to study to get a real education is haunted?

Anyway, we do have haunted universities in North Carolina, and they are:

Lees-McRae College

Lees McRae College

Established in 1900, Lees-McRae College is named after Suzanna Lee and Elizabeth McRae, named by founder Reverend Edgar Tufts after a renowned educator (Lee) and the school’s benefactor (McRae). A friendly ghost, Emily Draughn, is said to be found around Tate Dorm.

Tate Building - Lees McRae College 2

The site of the dormitory was once Grace Memorial Hospital, which was where Emily died of tuberculosis during the 1930s. Emily made her presence known by making phone calls, operating the elevator, confusing corridors, and shifting furniture. Emily doesn’t appear to have any malicious tendencies. But she exists.

Haunted Universities

Chowan University

chowan-university 1

Founded in 1848 and with a current student body of only 1200 students, Chowan University is known for its united atmosphere and its athletic record. What the school is also known for, however, is its long history of paranormal disturbances.

Chowan-university Mixion Hall 2

A ghost haunts the second floor of the Mixion Hall in the Music Hall. Student’s have been reporting to hear music when they get to the room. The piano stops. It was said that someone hanged himself in that room.

Chowan-university Belk Hall

In Belks Hall, students have heard a little girl giggling while riding her tricycles down the stairs. And screams of someone who committed suicide.

Columms Building Chowan

The “Brown Lady” is perhaps the most frightening and famous apparition that haunts the school. Lingering on the third floor of the Columns Building, her footsteps have been heard, leading to brief chases by security guards suspecting unauthorized students.

Queens College

Salem College

salem college

Salem College has undergone some transformations since its founding in 1772. Originally built as a primary school, it later was turned into a high school, and then finally a college. It is consistently ranked among the best colleges in the nation and has the distinction of being the United States’s oldest female educational establishment that is still a women’s college.

gramley hall 2

An institution with over two centuries of continued use is bound to have a colorful history, and Salem is no exception. The Gramley Building is the site of a library where two girls were killed in an electrocution accident in 1907. According to reports, the girls visibly manifest and scream at students. Similarly, a student allegedly hanged herself in the attic of Gramley’s dormitory, leading to students hearing dragging and scratching sounds from the attic.

clewell Hall 2

A young girl fell down an elevator shaft in Clewell’s dormitory, making many believe her presence is still in the building. The school’s other dormitory, Babcock, is said to have a painting in its lobby of Mary Reynolds (daughter of R.J. Reynolds), whose eyes that follow students as they walk by. Last, but certainly not least, the Fine Arts Center has had a variety of paranormal disturbances, including a phantom pianist who plays pianos and organs, and a patron who died in Theatre #2 and still lingers to this day. Creepy.

The Greensboro Ghost

Western Carolina University

WCU 2

The story that has floated around WCU for decades involves two female roommates in the 1960s that decided to remain on campus during a school break. Supposedly, one of the girls left the room to take a shower but was gone for a suspiciously long time. When the other girl went to investigate, she stood frozen by the door as a set of scratching noises accompanied a scream from the hallway. Out of seemingly nowhere, a repairman walked by outside the dorm’s window and yelled up that everything was okay, and for the girl to stay in her room. She obliged out of a crippling fear, but as it turns out, the other girl had been raped and murdered.

Moore Hall 2 WCU 3

Rumors suggest that the spirit of the murdered girl never left the Moore Building, instead of staying to terrify future classes of girls with screaming and crying bouts. In a strange twist on the regular ghost story, the murderer was arrested and served time in a mental institution, only to die in the mid-1980s. Since then, the sightings of the murdered girl’s ghost have been spotted and believe to be wandering the Hallway.

Scott Hall WCU 2

In the 1990s Scott Hall began its conversion to “the dark side.” During this time, it is said that a female student hung herself in the East Wing of the building. Her motives for suicide are not known, but the legend lives on. The floor was closed for many years afterward because numerous people reported having seen the young lady there.

Harrill Hall WCU 2a

Built in 1971, the fifth floor of Harrill Hall has a similar history of unusual occurrences. According to legend, a girl died of an asthma attack while having a sleepover with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, she suffocated in her sleep. Her ghost is now said to haunt the fifth floor of Harrill, along with the building’s elevators. The elevators sometimes open only on the first and fifth floors, but other times they open on all floors when no one is aboard. People on the fifth floor have reported strange occurrences and the feeling of being watched, as well. This girl seems to have influenced numerous parts of Harrill Hall, of which the WCU community should take note. Harrill Hall underwent a major renovation during the 2011-2012 school years.

So have you taken a ghost tour of your university?

Real Police Ghost Stories

You probably read my blog, that I like to write about the paranormal, true paranormal stories from everyday life. Even I witness something paranormal. When my mom died in 2016, with Alzheimer and dementia, two days after her death I saw a white orb floating in my house. I knew it was her.  She wanted to see her son and her husband, and she did. My dad did not see it, only I did. I believe in the afterlife and the paranormal.

Zachery Knowles who write’s true paranormal stories; even his writings are scary to read.  I have a couple of his books:

 

 

True Ghost Stories: Real Police Ghost Stories: True Tales of the Paranormal as Told by Cops and Other Law Enforcement Officials

These are fascinating stories told by cops; you can’t make this up.

And

 

 

True Ghost Stories: Real Haunted Cemeteries and Graveyards

The same thing goes for haunted cemeteries. I never walk across a cemetery at night in the summertime when the day is hot and nights in the graveyard can be cold.

If you like good ghost stories, check out his other stories too. He’s a fantastic writer.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not – Haunted Hollywood

Ripley 2

What do you call a mummy with one foot that is walking across the floor? One footed mummy!

Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Hollywood, California is the most haunted location. The crew from the Ghost Adventures from the Travel Channel investigated the place, and it was the scariest place they have ever investigated. They have shrunken heads, body parts, and sinister histories. If the tour guide told you not to touch anything, don’t touch anything. Spirits can follow you.

foot 2

This foot is 2,000 years old, and it belongs to a mummy. When Zac was holding it in his hand during a lockdown procedure investigation, he describes that the foot was heavy. And by using a spectrum camera that can see ghost or entities, they picked up a skeleton spirit that was attached to the foot and another one beside him. It looked like one was trying to kick Zac to the floor. While he was holding it, it looks like he had a vision of woman pharaoh and the foot belong to her. Wow, Tom Cruise movie the Mummy was true after all. There’s evil in the museum.

Aaron was infected by the skull that was tuck away in a cave-like structure in the walls. He opened the box and there it was, a skull was in the box, and it was preserved for many years. In cold and damp location where it won’t deteriorate.  It made Aaron dizzy, and he was confused about where he was going. Plus, the structures of the cave can be very claustrophobia.

They have a Tribal Room, in it, it’s the most impressive room and be warned. They have the West Africa Nail Fetish Voodoo Doll and other real skulls that possessed evil in the place. Ripley had collected them during his visit to Africa in the 1920’s. (sorry no pictures) You have been warned!

Below the museum where the employees work or where they take a break, it’s the haunted area. The employees have seen and heard apparitions.

The museum is interactive; you can play Grab the Ruby, Roll your Tongue in front of the mirror, and other fun stuff.

Logan Paul’s Suicide Forest

logan-paul 1

YouTube star Logan Paul apologized for posting a video showing an apparent suicide victim in Japan’s “suicide forest,” drawing condemnation for appearing to use the death for comic purposes.

The video was pulled from Paul’s official YouTube channel but was re-loaded by other users on the service.

Mount Fuji

The Suicide Forest is located in Aokigahara Jukai, dense 14 –square – mile volcanic forest at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan Yamanashi Prefecture. Jukai means “Sea of Trees,” Jukai is known as Suicide Forest, the most popular suicide destination in Japan. (At least more than 200 bodies are found every year and still counting.) It’s a beautiful forest but very dangerous. It feeds off with your emotions and fears.

hand

What Logan Paul saw was an actually a dead body which had just committed suicide earlier that day, this is real, his reaction was real. It was not staged. His crew filmed it, and it is true. People on YouTube land, please explain what is the Suicide Forest. If you don’t know what it is, do your research first.  If you are scrambling to see the video on YouTube good luck in finding it. It may be taken down anytime soon this week by YouTube legal team.

Remember suicide is not a joke, depression and mental illness is not a joke. They came to see the hauntings of the forest, but reality came in.  This happened a hundred yards from the parking lot!  His behavior is another story to question, we all know we don’t joke or laugh at a dead person. We must have respect dead.

It looks like he might suffer the consequences of his behavior and his celebrity on YouTube. He did apology his behavior for the victim and his family. Will this end his career?

The haunted forest is haunted by Yurei – unhappy, angry spirits with white clothes and long black hair. (Think about the ghost girl in The Ring) Some say their anguished howls are often heard between two and three a.m. – a time when it is too late, in more ways than one, to “talk about your troubles.”

People go to Japan for several reasons either for work, see another culture, and they know about the mountain and the suicide forest.

Oh, by the way, there was a movie made about the haunted forest called The Forest here’s my review.

JC Sawyer School haunted

JC Sawyer school .jpg

I recently heard about this story and I did not know until a couple days later, that I overheard a couple of teachers who go to J.C. Sawyer Elementary school, the same school I went when I was a child in the 1970’s. Great memories I had in that school and great teachers I had who now passed away. Is now haunted.

A teacher who goes to the school was talking to her friend that her students saw a ghost of a woman walking behind them and she was wearing white and her hair was up. It stood for a few seconds and disappeared.

Many of her students have seen it. However, she brushed it off and told the students it was their imagination, but the students really saw a ghost at their school and they were talking about it in the classroom. She had enough with the students telling their stories and told them to settle down and be quiet. They were quiet.

Five of the teacher’s book flew off the shelves, from the wall, hit the floor and then the closet open and slam shut by itself.

The students and the teacher were horrified by what they saw. None of the students were close to the closet or the shelves.

Moss-Annette

Later, she found it out the classroom that she was in was a former teacher by the name of Mrs. Annette Moss, who passed away in 2014 at the age of 80.  She taught in the same classroom for thirty-nine years in that room.

 

Annabelle: The Creation

Anna MP

If you love horror movies and suspense, Annabelle: The Creation will scare the crap out of you. Ever since, the first Annabelle movie wasn’t that scary enough, but it was a true story in the 1970’s when two nurses found this old Raggedy Ann doll laying around somewhere and decided to keep it and not knowing it was evil, this was a true case file from the Ed and Lorraine Warren a Roman Catholic couple who were highly controversial American paranormal investigators.

When you watch this movie, this movie will suck the air out of the theater leaving you breathless. The quietness and the stillness will make it scarier and creepy. Everything is standing still until a movement that scares the crap out of you, and you pee in your pants.

This movie will make you jump,  but don’t watch it alone, bring a friend and a pillow.

Talitha Bateman 3

 

Polio-stricken Janice (Talitha Bateman, above ) and her BFF Linda (the lively Lulu Wilson, below), who basically are shunned by the older girls and forced to bunk together. In no time, they discover the dead daughter’s old bedroom, as well as one used as a space for designing doll outfits!  They see the demonic doll, and it takes the life of its own and stalks the inhabitants of the house.

Lulu Wilson 3

David Sandberg, the director, finds inventive ways to position her around the house without losing the idea she is just a doll and not a living organism. For example, like Chucky from Child’s Play. Chucky Child’s Play is based on the same premise as Annabelle, but scarier.

The Conjuring universe as created by James Wan, and, like Conjuring 2, has ratcheted up the stakes for all to follow. And you can bet that if moviegoers react like the crowd, I saw it with an audience and it was good. I pee twice in my pants. There will be more, Wan and Peter Safran produced for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros, which unleashes the terror on Friday.

By the way, if the movie is too scary. You can leave, but make sure you watch a hilarious TV show or movie – especially comedies to get the horror images and sound from the movie out of your head. You will never know what will follow you and if you hear creepy noises in your house alone or with a couple friends with you. Watching horror movies can have that affect on the mind with the images and sound.  Watch the movie in the afternoon and later go to church.

Do you plan to see Annabelle: The Creation? Let us know what you think.

Haunted South Texas Motel

Ghost Hotel

When we see a ghost on videos, we all think it’s a fake, it’s impossible to hoax or prank something that is not there. We all have our favorite show such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, by watching these shows we think we could be experts like them to detect a ghost. Are we experts? No, we are not. We have paranormal investigators who can detect ghost better than us. And someone has to die first to be a poltergeist.

In Harlingen, Texas a man video tapes a poltergeist activity in a South Texas motel, that is going viral on the internet and over 1 million views who watch it.

Do we believe we in ghost? Still no?

When Frank Ramirez posted the video of the poltergeist activity he said “IDK what it is, but I know it was here. You be the judge. Hotel in Harlingen, Tx.”

He tells us you be the judge. Meaning us if it is real or not. He had witnessed this. We did not see what happened. We could dissect the video frame by frame to see what is going on like we are CSI agents. But we are not CSI or Sherlock Holmes. To pull a prank or hoax it takes practice or even a couple of weeks to do this thing.

Many people on Facebook claimed that he used the fishing line when pulling the items. Do you see fishing lines? It would have been reflected with the lights on in the room.

Plus, he was coming from work, and he decided to stay at this hotel, because it was cheap – I think and he needed to rest, eventually he was awakening by some poltergeist activity in the room.

So go ahead and think it is haunted or not. But there was death that happened over a year ago, a lady stayed in the same exact room and her face was scratch.

Here’s the video:

 

(If this link works – good  if not sorry)

When KSAT called Country Side Inn on Saturday, an employee said the motel had “nothing to say” about the video and that they were not authorized to speak on the matter, that means the workers did not want to get fired from their job.

What do you think?
