Louisburg College, founded in 1787, is a private Methodist institution with many suspected ghosts. Its Main Building, used as a hospital during the Civil War, is haunted by a little boy with no face. Voices and sounds abound here, and other ghosts are suspected to call the building home. In the Kenan Girls Dormitory, namesake Mrs. Kennan keeps a watch on her halls. A green glow is said to come from the fourth floor. And at Merritt Dorm, cold spots and poltergeist activity have been reported. Faucets turn on by themselves, doors slam, TVs and radios act up, desk chairs roll across rooms, and disembodied footsteps are heard.

    When I was ten years old, my uncle used to live in that house. When I was that age, he showed me where he had hidden a set of wedding rings in the mantle of one of the fireplaces. Although the house was definitely haunted, the attic was actually divided into two rooms: one for dead solders and the other for live solders. with a secret staircase leading up to the loft area basket random.
