It is said that the ghostly orbs that come out of the mountains are the spirits of Cherokee Indian maidens searching for their lost loves. The ghost lights are reported to date back to the 1200, when a big battle claimed the lives of many Indian warriors. The area also has been thought to be a location of alien activity. Wiseman’s View on Linville Mountain is said to be the best vantage point for seeing the lights.
