A Peaceful Resting Place or a Site of Unusual Activity?
Old Settlers’ Cemetery is far more than just an old graveyard. Sure, you can walk around and enjoy reading some headstones dating back to Charlotte’s early days as a cultural and economic hub before the Civil War. However, it’s also an entrance to some of the most chilling aspects of North Carolina’s history.
Many go to the cemetery to check out its notable limestone, marble obelisks, and other ornately designed headstones. While there, you might also catch a glimpse of something far more sinister, such as an inexplicable floating orb or mysterious altar.
The reported unrest at the Old Settlers’ Cemetery is no big surprise, though, given its history of graverobbing and other less than savory activities. Because of its location near Charlotte’s historic medical school, the cemetery was reputedly a site for illicitly harvesting corpses to use for research purposes.
No matter the extent of your ghostly experience there, the Old Settlers’ Cemetery is the perfect place to soak up Charlotte’s fascinating history while wandering through some headstones for a little while.
