Haunted Charlotte: Supernatural Stories from the Queen City

Roy Heizer, Photography by Nancy Heizer

Available Now


Entombed within these pages are twenty-seven accounts of the dead and the bizarre, tales of those who have experienced for themselves the Queen City's supernatural world. Meet a child ghost who died in a horrible auto accident and now haunts current area drivers. Consider the vanishing Monroe family or the disappearing murder suspect in Fourth Ward. Be careful of a knock at the door—it could be a ghost...or someone literally coming back from the dead. Visit a forest where a young spirit girl saves a boy, then haunts him as a man. Drive over the Catawba River Bridge, where you may be lured to jump by the ghosts struggling in the water beneath. Ramble about the Rosedale Plantation to understand its haunted past. Above all, enjoy the mystical, weird, horrifying, and sometimes funny, stories from behind Charlotte’s eternal curtain.
