Halloween is almost upon us, and for those who like spooky things, it’s the perfect time to go looking for ghosts. If you’ve had your eyes, ears, or nose checked at CEENTA, they will be in great condition if you happen to run across any apparitions in these five locations.
The Elizabeth neighborhood is said to be very haunted. Ghosts are said to haunt Independence Park, and specters have been seen in several area restaurants, such as the former Kennedy’s Premium Bar & Grill.
Founders Hall, in Uptown, is said to have once been a medical school. It is said to be haunted by the ghost of a girl whose body was stolen and sold to the medical school. Even though her body was returned and Founders Hall is a shopping center now, her ghost is still said to haunt the building.
North of Charlotte, in Huntersville, is the Latta Plantation. The plantation is open for self-guided tours, and is visited by history buffs year-round. However, many tourists have reported doors slamming, the sounds of children running around, and even seen ghosts walking on the grounds.
Old Fire Station #4, in NoDa, is said to be haunted by a firefighter who died in 1934 when he fell while trying to slide down the fire pole from the top floor. Some say they can still smell his cigar smoke when no one else is in the building.
Queens University is considered the most haunted place in Charlotte, with plenty of ghost sightings all over campus. From the “well-dressed lady” in Dana Auditorium to the apparition in Overcash Hall to the Civil War-era soldiers in the quad, people have claimed to see phantoms there for many years.
Even if you’re skeptical about the existence of ghosts, the premier care you’ll get at CEENTA is nothing to disbelieve.
