Haunted WNC: Spooky Stories and Unexplained Phenomena

There are quite a few alleged hauntings and haunted areas in WNC. The history that surrounds the area is rich with stories, lore, and unexplained events and sightings. Asheville alone is reported to be on what is known as a “ley line” where a vortex of strange, powerful, and unexplainable energy and phenomena tends to occur. Ley lines occur throughout the world, and you will often find ancient sites at different points of these lines. Ley lines go far back into history and ancient times and span many other countries and continents. For example, in China they are called “dragon lines,” and in Ireland, they are called “faerie paths.”

Whether these lines are “real” or not, there is no doubt that you will find a magnetic draw and powerful force pulling you into what Asheville and other parts of Western North Carolina have to offer, and “ley lines” may be responsible. Although there is no real science backing these claims up, it’s still interesting to consider.

To commemorate Halloween later this month, we thought you may be interested in exploring some unusual experiences in Western North Carolina while you stay with us here at Mill House Suites. Some of those “hauntings” and “paranormal” sites are below!
