These 7 Haunted Cemeteries In North Carolina Are Not For the Faint of Heart

Do two words go together more than ‘haunted’ and ‘cemetery’? I think not. It’s impossible to imagine acres dedicated to the dead resting in peace without some of those dead lingering less than peacefully in the area. North Carolina itself has history that dates back to America’s founding, so of course, our cemeteries and especially historic cemeteries are extra terrifying. If you’re looking for places that are eerily beautiful in the day, but extra spooky at night, these seven are filled with history and haunts.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
