Stories also exist of the ghosts of little boys in the mirrors in the bathrooms of the fourth and fifth grades.
The Cline School in Mt.Pleasant isn’t necessarily haunted, but some people have reported seeing the ghost of a man near the school. If you drive down Cline School Road after midnight, don’t be surprised if you see the man walking alongside your car. Keep in mind that he won’t be there if you stop the car to investigate.
The Caroleen School in Caroleen, North Carolina no longer exists, but don’t tell that to the ghosts that haunt the school gym. Two students at the school were raped and then killed during the early part of the 1950s and their ghosts still wander the gym. The county demolished the school, but left the gym standing for some odd reason. The ghosts of the two girls are sometimes seen wandering around the gym.
Concord is home to the haunted Winecoff Elementary School. The school was once used to house students from elementary school through graduation. The legend claims that a football player died in the hallway. After playing hard during a game, he had a heart attack. The exact hall where he died no longer exists, but students still see him floating around.
Gastonia is home to more than one haunted school. One is the Lincoln Academy, a former school for girls. Legend says that a group of boys kidnapped a girl from the school, raped her, killed her and left her tied to a tree. Some visiting the area late at night claim to see weird smoke and have car problems, particularly when they stop on or near the bridge. At Brookside Elementary School, some have seen someone moving around the school after it’s closed and hear noises coming from the nearby woods.
The former site of the Lincoln Academy in Kings Mountain is haunted by a more recent event. Two men carjacked a girl passing through the area, used barbed wire to tie her to a tree and killed her. Not surprisingly, her ghost haunts the spot where she died.
In Jackson, North Carolina has its own tragic story. A group of schoolchildren were sentenced to detention in the boiler room. The teacher locked the doors, giving them no way to escape when the boiler exploded.
