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?

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?

Haunted Universities

The sound of footsteps, door slamming, and children laughing are the creepiest sound that you might hear in the dead of night when you are fast asleep in your dorm room and be awakened in the middle of the night.  Most of the universities are haunted, but they are the most popular universities to go and they have an excellent curriculum.

Montcalri State University

Montclair State University in New Jersey is said to be one of the most haunted colleges in America.  For years there have been reports of doors and windows slamming, lights flickering on and off, constant cold, and even a ghost who hovers over the beds of the students.

Montclair is built on top of Indian burial grounds, and alumni say it’s a very scary school. So scary, that many refuse to go in the woods after sundown. There have been many reports of figures believed to be Native Americans spotted in the forests.

Students reported appliances and lights turned on and off, bedroom and bathroom doors would have opened and the sound of a little girl laughing in the hallway.  Door knobs would rattle too.

A female resident woke up in the middle of the night to find a man dressed in 19th-century clothing standing over her bed with a loving facial expression. She thought that it was her roommate’s boyfriend and told him that he had the wrong bed. After saying this, she watched the man suddenly vanish into thin air.

Cal State University

Cal State University Channel Islands (Camarillo, CA)

It is never a good idea to build a university on the grounds of an old insane asylum it was closed in 1997, and it was used as a film location for Halloween (1978).  Since it was abandoned for several years, in 2002, they opened Cal State, and students have reported seeing the universities old residents wandering the grounds, halls, and streets of Cal State. Inmates are seen entering rooms which are empty upon investigation. Another inmate dances in a parking lot at night, only to fade as he approaches the streetlights. Scarier still are the violent ghosts who have thrown objects, knocked students over, and vandalized locked classrooms.

Fordam

Fordham University

Fordham’s Bronx campus is creepy looking enough to have been featured in The Exorcist (the campus was used in the filming of The Exorcist), and its plethora of ghost stories stand up to its frightening feel: the school, which dates back to 1841, was built atop of old hospitals and morgues and it is haunted by every kind of ghost, from children to priests.

More will come …

Boo… What’s that behind you!

The Girl with the Blue Dress and Pink Ribbon

girl-blue-dress

It’s was on the eve on Thanksgiving night, David is a mortician at a facility in North Carolina and Scott, I was visiting.

“Scott, come with me. I don’t want to leave you alone at the house,” David said.

“Okay.Yes.” Scott said

What’s the worse it can happen, right? Scott was wrong. The place was creepy as hell, dark, and smelled funny. David said it was normal and it was probably the smell of formaldehyde. So, Scott ignored it.

After a little time off chit-chatting and catching up, he told me he needed to get to work, but that I could stay in the little-adjoined office and watch some TV and so I did. The entrance to the morgue had swinging doors that you could hear when someone was coming in or out of them. He came to check on me a few times.

After a few hours of being by myself, Scott started to doze off, when the sudden sound of the doors woke me up. Expecting for my brother to walk in and greet me, there was nothing. Again, Scott started to fall asleep and yet again, the loud doors went off.

You couldn’t tell if someone was coming in or out but they kept on swinging and didn’t stop. Thinking my brother, David was playing a joke on me, Scott  got up and went to tell him to stop but to my surprise there was only a little girl standing there, playing with the doors, pushing them.

“Hi,” Scott said.

She looked at Scott and didn’t say a word, one of the things that caught Scott’s eyes was a pretty blue dress with a big pink ribbon she was wearing.

“Your dress is pretty, and the bow makes it stand out.” Scott said.

She looked at me and again nothing.

Then she started to run the opposite way towards the lonesome hall. Scott thought the kid belonged to another employee so, Scott went back to his chair.

Hours later when David shift was over, he finally woke me up to go back to his place. As we were driving, I started to tell him about the doors and the little girl with the cute blue dress and a big pink ribbon.

David slammed the breaks.

“What the hell? Why did you break?” Scott said.

“Tessa?” David said. He gave me a chilling look in his eyes. “I did  an autopsy on a little girl that drowned yesterday, she was wearing a blue dress and with a big pink ribbon.”

Scott was shocked.

David was shocked too.

Scott blood ran cold and he never been to his work EVER again!

 

 

True story. What’s that behind you?

Boo Halloween!!

Are you ready to get your scare on for Halloween? Remember we do have good ghosts and bad ghost out there.

The good ghost are the ones that someone we love that passed away recently. Even though they are buried, they are still with us in the house watching us and making sure that we are okay.

Sometime when I do laundry and collected the clothes from my dad’s room. I always say “Good morning, Mom. Love you and miss you.”  I talk to her. She died in the bed room.  Sometime I do get a response and sometime I don’t, but I know she can hear me, which is good. Her presence is in the room and in the house.

I mention this in a previous post, that when she died a couple days ago after her death I saw an orb floating in the house. And I saw a shadow in the house. I wasn’t scare. I knew it was her. She is watching over us. And I heard her voice! It called out my name. Only I heard it. My dad did not hear it.

Her clothes are still in the closets, especially her saries that she wore to work at ECSU. It looked magnificent on her. I still have pictures of her in her saries. It’s hard to remove her clothes out of the closet and put in boxes.

“Mom I am putting your clothes in boxes for safe keeping” I would say.

Because if I did not say that, I would hear shuffling noise in the room or even poltergeist activity in the house, that would be scary. But I know who it is.

So talk to your decease love one, they can hear you.

If you feel cold or warm around your body, it’s not the house, it’s the presence of love one.

Summer time is the best time to have a decease loved one to walk around the house you can save a lot of money on air conditioner bill. They could keep the house cool on a hot day.

The bad thing about ghost is not telling what you doing, throwing things away, rekindle bad memories or bad behavior and talking about it. They can hear you!

Poltergeist activity in the house will start, like slamming doors where the windows are closed.  A room that was clean few minutes ago is messed up again in seconds when you come back to the room.  Can the ghost be neat?

Then you hear the toilet flushing? And no was home only you? Bad pipes? Can ghost pee? Was it a number one or two? Who are gonna called?
