TARHEEL TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE | Church of the Nativity | Holidays | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Sat., Oct. 7, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: $15-$29

In Octobers of yore, three thin volumes of Southern ghost tales from Nancy and Bruce Roberts—An Illustrated Guide to Ghosts and Mysterious Occurrences in the Old North State, Ghosts of the Carolinas, and This Haunted Land—filled my childhood with delicious chills. There was something uncanny in simply knowing where ghosts were, and Bruce's atmospheric, grainy black-and-white photos of unquiet places, including The House of the Opening Door, The Maco Station, the Single Brothers' House at Old Salem, and the Jamestown Bridge, gave eerie verisimilitude to grisly tales of vengeance and piteous cries for help from beyond the grave. On Saturday, storytellers and musicians from Historic Interpretations recount eight vivid Carolina ghost stories, including "The Flaming Ship of Ocracoke," "The Boo Hag," and the enigmatic tale of "Virginia Dare and the White Doe." See the show with a three-course meal for twenty-nine dollars, or skip dinner and be the ghost at the feast for fifteen. —Byron Woods
