Blue Ridge Parkway Terror Town

Located 1 mile past Zooland Campground on Pisgah Covered Bridge Road outside of Asheville (.5 mile past Forest Hills). There is old farmland there with a number of hauntings that have been reported over the years. The farm is made up of about 18 acres with several farmhouses scattered throughout.

A little girl’s voice is heard deep in the forest. A boy who hung himself there haunts the upper farm.

An old lady and her husband haunt one of the houses. Her brother died in the woods near the house and can now be heard singing at night while he makes moonshine.

A shadow of a black horse has been seen running through the woods and then vanishes. There is a company who uses the location now for a haunted attraction called Terror Town so it is very easy to access during hours when they are there working. One of the staff lives at the park so don’t try to visit this one without permission.


I found this story on The Blue Ridge Parkway Guide online publication

Life with The Word and Bird Man -Clyde Kessler


How many poets does it take to change a light bulb?  In this case  – none.  An electrician was called in to do the job.

The other day my husband replaced the bulb in our porch light.   Later, he turned on the light and it didn’t work so he turned the switch off so he could see if the bulb was broken.  As soon as he touched the bulb it shattered into a zillion little pieces.

As luck would have it we had already arranged to have an electrician over to work on a broken ceiling fan so he checked the circuit to make sure nothing was wrong with the light fixture.  It was just a faulty bulb!

I hope you enjoyed paintings by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway
