Have you ever wandered past the old Fourth Creek Burying Ground and seen the shadow of the unknown soldier buried there? Did you grow up hearing stories about the ghost of a young girl spotted over and over again dripping wet in the Vance Hotel? Don't miss your chance to enjoy a walking ghost tour full of old stories and legends from Statesville’s past. Step beyond the beauty of Statesville’s historic downtown and discover its true haunted history--where tales of spirits, scary creatures, mysterious deaths, and creepy alleys become real. Guided by The Sharpe House Historic Players, you will be enthralled on your journey into the spirit realm on select evenings throughout the fall.
