One of our veteran members has decided to share a collection of scary stories from his childhood, in a new article entitled, Otherworldly Experiences. Charo has been a member of GHNC from the beginning and is a close personal friend, I have no doubt that every word of these stories is true. I hope you enjoy reading these tales, please stop by the forum and share some experiences of your own!
These stories are also available in the articles section.
The Ghost in the Field
This photo was taken on a ghost hunt some months ago. Myself and a group of friends decided to investigate a house that was known to be haunted. Not only is the house haunted, but many strange happenings have been reported around the property as well. There is a field behind the house that we didn't think much about, it was only when we returned home to review the pictures that we found what appears to be a skeletal figure standing in the field! Take a look at the picture and enhancement below.
Happy Halloween from GHNC!
Our good friend and fellow paranormal investigator, Merry Bearsky, recently sent us a photo showing what appears to be the ghostly handprints of a child. The story she relayed to us about the picture begins as her husband was doing construction work in a house which was known to have a strange atmosphere within it, as if you were being watched. As he was working, he looked behind one of his co-workers and immediately froze when he saw two ghostly handprints had appeared on a window that had been spotless just moments before. It was not cold enough for the imprints to be condensation and it didn't look to be dirt, the prints were also too tiny to belong to any of the workers present. Take a look at the spooky picture below and decide for yourself!

Happy Halloween to all from the GHNC team. May your Hallow's Eve hunts be rewarding :)

Michael Renegar, of the paranormal research group Camel City Spirit Seekers, has submitted this amazing new evidence
which shows a ghostly face that appears above the subject of a self portrait. Michael says,
In the second album of pics from March 20th, you will find a pic of a hundred year old drawing. THERE IS A SECOND FACE IN IT!!! Professor Alvin Profitt spotted it in my photo! I went back and looked over the drawing, using a magnifying glass. There were no scratches, smudges, or fingerprints in that part of the glass or drawing to account for that face. I tried for half an hour recreate the image with my camera, and couldn't. Furthermore, it has been identified as a Huff family Member, who has been dead for decades!
Prof. Profitt, an expert in our field with over 40 years of experience under his belt, feels it is the genuine article. So much so, we have submitted it to Loyd Auerbach to review.

Brian Wolf was an average teenager and a rising high school senior until a near death experience plunged him head first into the spirit world. Critically injured and semi-conscious, Brian is visited by an ancient Native American relative, Gray Wolf, who miraculously heals him. Brian inherits a powerful Native American ceremonial necklace containing a stone of great power and is informed that he has been chosen to take up an old family task of helping earthbound spirits return to the spirit world. Brian’s best friend Todd Weller, also a rising senior, decides to help Brian with his family task and the two of them become modern day ghost hunters, encountering both benevolent and frightening spirits in their paranormal investigations. This intricate adventure will stretch your imagination by taking you on a wild and exciting ride through earthly, spiritual, and intergalactic realms.

I'm beginning work on an educational documentary about ghosts of NC. If you're an "expert" on famous legends of North Carolina, please contact me. If you're willing to go on camera to discuss, all the better! I'd love to find people who have actually experienced something like the Maco Light or the Devil's Tramping ground. Thanks!
Distinguished author Roger Manley is looking for your help:
SEEN OR HEARD OF ANYTHING WEIRD? WE WANT TO KNOW!
The authors of the upcoming book Weird Carolinas seek local items from North and South Carolina to include. Ghosts, UFOs, haunted highways and houses, strange graves, freak accidents, weird yard art and unsolved mysteries—if it happened in either Carolina and if you can tell us the basic story of what, where and when, you’ll be credited by name if we use your information. Even if it happened years ago or to someone else, please contact: Rmanley@aol.com
Another chapter comes to a close in GHNC history. Over the past 5 years we have tripled the size of our team, traveled all across both North and South Carolina, and have gathered memories and experiences we will never forget. Hunt 19, our Halloween hunt, was what I consider the best hunt we have ever had. Check the hunt page and prepare to be amazed, we captured a spiritual energy like we have never seen before.
I want to thank those who took an interest in Ken's first ouija auction. The auction was successful and closed at $65. This was truly a steal, in my opinion the board is worth well over $100 to the right person. Encouraged by the auction, Ken has decided to continue making these boards. His next one will be a celtic design and you can bet it will be even better than his last one. Check this site for updates on the next auction, but be aware that these things take time when you put the kind of detail into your work that Ken does. It will be at least a couple of months before the new one is ready.

The GHNC team has started out the new year strong by adding many more members to the group and by having our fifteenth hunt at the notoriously haunted Payne Road. This was supposed to be the hunt where the Union county team was going to meet up with members from other counties for the first time, but the meeting did not go as planned. The other members were not able to make it, so we didn't get a chance to learn about the location from someone with first hand knowledge. The hunt suffered as a result, but we still gathered enough evidence to post the new page for hunt 15.
The forum has slowly become more and more active over the months. I've started to consider switching it over to a better forum system, one with different rooms and more features. If I do upgrade the forum, I will be sure to leave anonymous posting enabled. I think this is what has made our forum so popular in the first place, that people don't have to sign up for an account, they can post immediately. One of our most active new members, Lunar, has been nice enough to share his paranormal experiences with us. You can find these in the articles section. Have a fun + safe weekend and enjoy the updates!
- Hunt 15 added
- Lunar's Experiences added to articles
- New user submitted photos in the Gallery

My family has suffered from a sudden and unexpected death this holiday season. Our Christmas was replaced with a funeral, and I must tell you, it has been one of the toughest months in my life. You begin to look at things differently when people and places that were taken for granted begin to slip away from you. It's a humbling experience, and you really begin to understand the meaning of the phrase, "life is short". With a new perspective and a brand new digital camera, I plan to make 2005 one of our best years yet. You can see our new Minolta Z1 in the equipment section. This is the last camera I will be buying for a few years, so it better take good pictures. Patrick has the old Kodak now, this means we will have two digital cameras on every hunt as opposed to only one, as in the past. Stick around, great things are to come.
Happy New Year From GHNC!

October has been a very active time for most of our members. Contrary to the past few months, we have finally started to place plans into action and do what we do best. Some members have been working overtime and have managed to add substantially to our hunting equipment. Last night was our first chance to test it out in the field. We went on the yearly Halloween ghost hunt to Poinsett Bridge. You can find the whole story complete with pictures in the Hunts section.

Several readers from our forum have sent in their own pictures which have been placed in the Gallery section. I recently found some of our old pages I thought had been lost long ago. This stuff is from early 2000, right as we were starting out. You can find all this in the new Vault section. Enjoy the new material, and have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Things have been quiet for the GHNC team the past few months. We have since been on a hunt, but we didn't get enough pictures to create a section for Hunt 11. I think we just picked a bad night.
Halloween is coming soon and it's at this time of the year that we become most active as a group. We have plans for the next couple of months and the site should get a good amount of new content. We are trying to decide whether to go to Poinsett Bridge again this year, or to go somewhere new. If you have any suggestions for our Halloween hunt, please stop by the forum and let us know. Speaking of the forum, we seem to be getting more traffic to the site than usual, and I'm happy to see folks sharing their viewpoints on the paranormal there.

Welcome to the newly renovated home of the GhNC team. The updates are still in progress and will continue until the entire site has been transformed.
I have lots of good news to share about the future of the site and the group. We have just purchased new equipment and have started to hunt again for
the first time in over six months. We plan to purchase more ELF meters and also to experiment with new ways of interacting with the spirit world. The article

Take care - Eikon
I have redesigned the site for the 10th time and I think i've
finally settled on a good layout. I also payed off CJB for a year so now the ghnc.cjb.net address is ad free.
The GHNC team has improved over the last 3 years into a very experienced group. We now have the time and money to really go after a hobby we all enjoy. I like the travelling it involves and I love catching photos of things most people dont even know exist. Another hobby I've become interested in is collecting ouija boards. Under the Ouija section you'll see a showcase of the boards and equipment we employ in the field. Each hunt is now accompanied with a detailed writing of the events, so you can now learn and see more then ever. When I bring the the old pictures back online we will be well over the 75 picture mark. This is our best year yet!
Big update for the site. We had the official hunt seven last night at a local area and got some great pictures. Hunt six has
been updated and now has a webpage. The group pictures section also has some new pictures from last night. The location
we chose is where an old haunted house used to be, but its torn down now.
We went around to the various barns and shacks that were still standing. We did some Ouija in a particular horse stable and came in contact with a spirit named Lezly. Hunt eight is planned to be Poinsett Bridge on Halloween night, unless we have another hunt before then. Go check out Hunt sevens page now!
The GhNc team is back in 2003 with all new equipment and an ad free website. We will be going on many more hunts in the
upcoming winter months. Some old pages have been brought back and all broken picture links have been fixed.
Be sure to check out the new pictures in the Hunts section under Hunt 6. The new digital camera takes very high resolution pictures and you'll see the best quality possible. Please excuse the ftp folder, I will make a proper webpage for the new hunt soon.
As you can see its been almost a year with no activity for the GhNc2k2 team. We did a few ghost hunts between this time
period but we lack equipment. My Polaroid digital camera started acting up on a particular ghost hunt due to paranormal
activity and hasnt been the same since. I have recently come into possesion of a Sony Mavica digital camera but chances
are it will never get used. The rest of the team has lost interest but there is always hope with the approaching winter
season we may hunt again.... just incase that happens I have resurrected the site.
We have lost one of our greatest members. The one known as Crow Dawg has moved to Concord NC, which is an hour away from the rest of the teams Wingate location. Crow, I just want you to know I miss seeing you a lot... I miss my best friend. I know you are busy and have probably moved on to bigger and better things but please keep in touch. Peace out, brother.
The Ghost Hunters of North Carolina are back for 2002. To ring in the new year we've got a new site under a new host.
Now you'll find a cleaner interface featuring smoother navigation. We will be constantly under construction but expect
it all to return eventually. We will be getting more organized and more professional by featuring complete articles of
each investigation. We are no longer a local group and will travel anywhere in NC to investigate.
Recent investigations include Rural Hall's Payne Road and High Rock road's Gravity Hill. We've had a lot of issues with our late web host. It seems they have trouble keeping up with our files. With our new host and new look this is sure to be GhNc's best year ever!
