If you like ghost stories and history in general, this is a fun way to spend a few hours with your tweets and teens. The tour guide dresses for the part and obviously enjoys her job. Good clean fun!

Took these wasn't expecting to find anything but lightened everything up and if you look to the right there is a human figure that is easy to spot. This was one of my best experiences on my trip to NC i will never forget it!
