North Carolina has so many haunted places, it's hard to pick the ones you should visit most.

Last week, we told you about the scariest haunted house in North Carolina, but what about the real places that are the most haunted?

What makes a spirit wander so long? I can say many of North Carolina’s ghosts lived during some hard times, maybe the need to tell their story?

Take my word for it, I’ve been to many of these, and it made me a believer of the paranormal. Here’s my list of some real haunted places you should check out in North Carolina.

  • 1. Devil's Tramping Ground - Chatham County

    According to NC Pedia, this spot near Siler City is a circle path that supposedly “Satan frequents this area on his nightly walks, pacing the circle as he comtemplates his evil deeds.”

  • 2. Mordecai House - Raleigh

    Legend has it that this house, which is the oldest still standing at its original location in Raleigh, has multiple ghosts haunting its halls.

    Mordecai Historic Park

    Please begin your trip to Mordecai Historic Park at the Visitor Center. Here you will find tour tickets and park information, as well as the gift shop and meeting space. The permanent exhibit, "The Mordecai Story: Faith, Family, and Community in Raleigh" will be installed in June 2016.

  • 3. The Ghost Hiker of Grandfather Mountain

    This beautiful state park hides a lot more than you think, as a bearded man has been seen at dusk.

  • 4. The Demon Dog of Valley Crucis

    The good people at North Carolina Ghosts say this mountain town has a major supernatural side.

    The Demon Dog of Valle Crucis

    One of the most frightening apparitions in the catalog of North Carolina hauntings comes from the quiet mountain town of Valle Crucis. This small town takes its name, which is Latin for "Valley of the Cross" from the two streams which meet at right angles in the middle of the valley.
