Are Ghost Real? Some people say that they have seen or heard ghosts, but some say that it's just in their head and that ghosts aren't real. A lot of ghost stories take place here in Asheville. I did some research here, and found that the most famous ghost story in Asheville is called “Brown Mountain Lights”. The story says that there are some random moving lights every night along the ridge and some say they are spirits of Cherokee wives and mothers.
The next story is called “Katherine's bed and breakfast”. The story says the bed and breakfast is haunted by Grace, the former owner's grandmother she walks around the B and B.
The last ghost story I researched is one called “The pink lady”. The magnificent Grove Park Inn, located in North Asheville, is haunted by the famous Pink Lady. The legend goes that she was pushed or fell from a balcony to her death. She has been seen numerous times by staff and guests. Room 545 seems to be the location of a great deal of paranormal activity, from loud noises to apparitions. I spoke with the husband of a housekeeper who reported seeing a lady dressed in pink walk into a restroom. The housekeeper waited for the lady to come out before going into clean. When the lady didn't come out, she went in to investigate. There was no one there. She called her manager to report this and the manager told her that it was just the Pink Lady, like this was nothing out of the ordinary. Grove Park Inn's country club
has been reported to have paranormal activity. From lights turning on and off by themselves to a spectral voice telling security guards to "get out".
So, what do you think? Are ghosts real?
