I've always heard Erwin High is haunted with Indian spirits because the school was built on their burial site. Janitors reported hearing doors slamming and other noises at night when no one else was in the school.

You all would enjoy this:
Dr. Charlotte Ross, folklorist, will come to Mars Hill College for a firelight program called “Appalachian Ghost Stories Beneath the Stars,” on Friday, October 30, 2009, 7 pm.
The concert, which will take place in the “Lion’s Eye” behind the new Ferguson Math and Science Center on the campus, is a fundraiser for the Southern Appalachian Archives. The charge will be $5 for adults and $3 for children aged 6 to 16.
Ross plans to begin the program with stories appropriate for children, school age or older. Then, as the evening progresses, the subject matter of the stories will progressively become more appropriate for adult audiences.
“Our mountains have the best ghost stories,” Ross said, because the stories tend to have a sense of place, and a sense of traditional Appalachian mindset and culture.
Despite the concert title, Ross said that participants may or may not consider the stories to be “ghost stories” as the term is normally defined.“You can call them ghost stories, you can call them mysterious or you can just say they are unexplained, but they are all haunting in their own way. And they are all true, or at least, the people who told them believed they were true,” she said.

The tunnel that the great Smokey Mountain Railroad goes through is haunted.

I grew up in asheville and went to almost all of the places mentioned (i was also a patient at app hall in my early teens). there wasn't much to do in AVL during my high school years so we would just drive around and party wherever we could find a spot. the scariest was definitely sneaking into the old building beside the VA hospital. We had to go through a tunnel to get in and it was a HUGE place. A lot of memories there as we drank, smoked and tripped at that place a LOT. It was scary but nothing ever happened. We tried Helen's bridge too - you're supposed to park under the bridge, turn your car off and say "Helen Come Forth" three times...nothing for us. I never heard or saw anything strange at App Hall but it was kinda creepy, especially at night.

There was a local girl arrested two weeks ago for being on the property of the old VA hospital. She was innocently ghost hunting on Federal property which landed her two days in jail! Unless they have mercy on her...she is in some deep do-do!

Battle Of Asheville, LOL The way people talk about it you would think it was bigger then Antietam and Gettysburg put together lol
Of course it wasn't a major battle. But us Ashevillians are proud of the fact that our old men and young boys ran off the yankee army raiders. We got the spunk, they didn't have the balls to fight.

Yay! God bless sweet Dixieland!
