Stumbled across an article about urban legends from one of the southern states....

The legends are:
Raleigh’s Haunting Capitol Building History
Lake Norman’s Normie
The Beast of Bladenboro
The Brown Mountain Lights
The Devil's Circle
Richfield Road Legend (AKA "Gravity Hill")
George Feller Legend
Pactolus Lights
Beaucatcher Mountain in Asheville, Helen's Bridge
The Ghost of Edith Vanderbilt

Hmmmmmm...........
'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

There are lots of other ghost stories in Carolina.
Remember Joe Baldwin.
Some are not known because they are known only
by local residents.
Of course all states have their ghost stories in the U.S.

I live in NC right now and I would love to find Helen's Bridge. Does anyone have directions? I am familiar with Tunnel Road and the Beaucatcher Cinemas, which I assume must be near Beaucatcher Mountain, but I do not know exactly how to get to the bridge.

The "Legends" or in lots of cases "hauntings" are still around, as if one really expects them to go away. Still fun to visit but not as often.
