CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- People hoping to see a ghost turned out in droves Thursday night for the Halloween ghost walk at Charlotte’s historic Rosedale Plantation.

The Charlotte Paranormal Society lists the house built back in 1815 as “the most active site” for paranormal activity in the city.

Rosedale’s Executive Director, Deborah Hunter, thinks she knows why there are spirits that don’t want to leave.

“It remained a private residence until 1986 so there is a lot of family history and a lot of emotional attachment to the home,” Hunter said as she led the ghost walk of about 20 people around the grounds and down into the basement that once served as the kitchen of the home.

There are some dry herbs hanging in a corner and many claim to see the herbs spinning in different directions even though the room is air-tight.

Those who took the walk on Halloween thought it would be the perfect night to see a ghost.

“I do believe in ghosts and spirits.  I have people close to me who have had encounters who I believe wouldn’t make it up,” said Kristin Burgess when the tour was ending.

But Bailey Nichols said she enjoyed the tour even though she is not a believer.

“Didn’t see anything and didn’t expect to see anything," she said.
