Actually Haunted Place’s In The Carolinas??

“Actually Haunted Place’s In The Carolinas??”


Some people will tell you or say that this is a urban legend or made up ghost storie to get a rise out of you…


It would be a story if Shelby N.C. Hospital were not actually haunted…


The hospital has been there for just over 75 year’s now and it’s a known fact that many people have died there over the year’s and anywhere that you have death associated with loss and with tragedy you will have ghost and paranormal activity…


Shelby Hospital in Shelby N.C. was first started in 1910 by Dr T.G. Hamrick and rhere was a new 43 bed hospital opened there in 1923… And the hospital has been expanding and growing every since then… And many of the ghost stories with Shelby N.C. Hospital date’s way back in time but some date to mode modern time’s…. The Hospital’s official policy is that the hospital is not haunted and there are no such thing’s as ghost… However some of the hospital staff at the hospital talked to me off record in the past and told and filled us with some spooky thing’s going on at the hospital…

One is that of a little girl ghost:


The little girl ghost is often seen in what is now the newly remodeled Emergency Room of the hospital.. She is a small little girl with blond hair and she is wearing her pajamas walking around in different treatment room’s in the hospital and also in the halls leading from the Emergency Room area of the hospital off into other areas of the hospital.. She appears to be about 4-5 year’s of age…


She doesn’t ever speak according to the report’s over the year’s.. She is just seen walking around or pacing the floor’s and hall way’s and she has been reported often both by patients at the hospital and the hospital staff of the hospital.. She is seen wearing yellow pajama bottoms and a pink and white pajama top… She doesn’t appear to have any kinda of injuries to her small little body and if she is approached she just vanishes.. No one seems to know who she was in life or how she died.. But many people over the year’s has seen her… And if you go to the Emergency Room department not feeling to well you sit in the waiting room to be seen by a doctor there and in the newly remodeled part of the Emergency Room area you will see the intake nurse room well there’s three of them and then you will see a set of double door’s right after the intake nurses room leading into the back of the Emergency room department and if you happen to sit down in the Emergency lobby room front of those double door’s and happen to have your cell phone out on record you might catch the little ghost girl because she has been seen walking around in front of those double door’s by staff of the hospital and also many patient’s… 


Now do you think that story of the little ghost is a old wise tale or urban legend?


No it’s actually very much real I am afraid to say..



The Old Man In The X-Ray Department:


There is the ghost of the x-ray department which he is supposed to about 75-80 year’s of age and he has been appearing in the X-ray Department of the hospital for s number of year’s now.. And again both patients and hospital staff have seen him… He has a habit of walking into the x-ray room where the patient is getting a x-ray done at and when the patient asks who he is often the staff person doing the x-ray see the old man.. But it also happens the other way around.. The person working in the x-ray room will see the old man walk into the room and go to try to put him out of the room only to have him vanish into the thin air.. It has really made for some interesting stories over the year’s.. And yes if you go to the x-ray department to have any x-ray done don’t think you are losing your insanity if you happen to see the 75-80 year old man enter the x-ray room with you… And yes the old man can still be seen by staff and patients it sounds that the x-ray department of the hospital is actually haunted by the old man still today…



Ghost In The Old Grover Building Of Shelby Hospital:


When there is bad weather like snow the hospital has the staff to stay in the part of the hospital called the old Grover Building.. And the old Grover Building appears to be a real hot spot for paranormal activity..  People will appear laying on old stretchers, people walk around in the hospital gowns and vanish when some one goes to try to help them… And screams and cries and moans of mercy are heard.. There is the ghost of a man with no leg’s in a wheelchair who has set and talked to people and then as you are talking to him he will just  suddenly vanish… Can you imagine that happening to you at 3:00 am… Some people who have tried to sleep in the old Grover Building claim to feel as if something is setting on them while trying to sleep and they also see bright red eye’s starring out of the darkness at them… What is it? No one seems to know who or what those red eye’s maybe always starring out of the darkness at them…



The Ghost Cat:


There is also supposed to be the ghost of a large black and white cat in the old Grover Building… People will see the cat and they will follow it into a room only to not be able to see or find the cat when they go into the room right after the cat enters it and they go into the room and look around to make sure that they cat isn’t hiding.. Then as they are going into another part of the building they will see the cat ahead of them once again.. No one knows how this ghost cat came to haunt the hospital but many people over the year’s have reported seeing it… They have reported it to staff..


Now is these stories about haunting place’s or people while you maybe on a visit to this hospital are they true or made-up urban legends or old wise tail’s to keep people wondering if this hospital is actually haunted by dead ghost and a ghost cat… Well this Shelby Hospital is actually haunted by these thing’s because they are a recurring still today and all these stories are over the year’s from staff off record or people visiting the hospital at that time…


If you will take out your cellphone and have it on record you just might find one these ghostly ghost on the video or try snapping a picture of if… that is visible to see to have your stories backed up… Because most people don’t believe in ghosts or paranormal activity unless they see it for themselves or has encounter it for themselves..


As some of these lost soul’s are at the hospital will not hurt you only scare the crap out of you… 


As for me I love haunted place’s and urban legends or old wise tales  and ghost stories because it make’s place’s and thing’s much more interesting to think about or actually go see for yourself…



The Ghost Of Caroleen Broad River Bridge:



There are ghost stories of hauntings all over North Carolina… But one of the two most famous is story of the two sister’s who were coming back from a trip to South Carolina in 1943.. They lived on the other side of the river bridge going towards the town of Caroleen when there came up a horrible horrific thunderstorm.. A truck ran the sister’s off the road and their car flipped over and over ending up in the river… Both of the elderly ladies were killed in the accident… And it was not long until people began to tell a strange paranormal story… It is told that when there is a thunderstorm going on after dark people have picked up the two ghost sister’s walking on the road before you get to the Caroleen River Bridge… They get into people’s car’s and say thank you and tell you where they live at on the other side of the bridge but they vanish when the car is actually driven across the Board River Bridge…


And over the year’s many people have told of picking up the two elderly ladies… Some people have reported that when you cross the bridge they will vanish and there are two wet spots on your car seats.. Even ghost hunter’s from around the United State’s have visited the site and some have been recorded a evp near the bridge that is said to be that of an old lady saying “Please Help Us” So apparently the two ladies who wrecked are trapped there forever in the residual haunting that seems like it will go on forever….
