Black Mountain

Meet Maybelline, haunting Cherry Street since 1913. Photo here taken in 1936

Black Mountain is a sleepy little mountain town, located just 12 miles of East Asheville. Established in 1812 as the town of Grey Eagle, it was nicknamed "The Dark City" by the early settlers. Home to Dr. Billy Graham (in Montreat), the town is known as a spiritual and healing place. Surrounded by eight Christian conferences, many operated as Tuberculosis sanitoriums at the turn of the 19 th century. By day, Black Mountain's quaint downtown streets are filled with rocking chairs, local artisan & crafter boutiques, antiques, good books and delicious local cuisine. Live music by local musicians is heard pouring out into the evening air from several historic pubs. And then, just a little after sunset…a regular cast of ghostly characters spill into the streets, begging to tell us their stories of disease, war, heartbreak and railroad history that literally causes this little town to "ROCK" with spiritual energy... such as early settlers, Native Americans, slaves and a white german shepherd that died in 1948.

As scary as all these stories sound, we are proud to say that our tour remains FAMILY FRIENDLY, with stories suitable for a PG-13 mature youth.

INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE: Learn to douse behind the old McCoy building, in an actual Potter's field! Hear the account of the young spirit who STILL RESIDES in this building.

Susan Firer and Jim Hazard of Milwaukee, WI say: "How could we know this would be our favorite night in Asheville? Architecture, history, camaraderie, an incredibly informed guide,the supernatural at every corner. Really, a terrific way to see Asheville After Dark. We couldn't recommend it enough."
The Besimpki's of Boston, MA on Trip Advisor says: "My family and I went on a tour and had the best time! Even if you're not the biggest believer in paranormal activity, it was a great tour of the city that included lots of historical, and sometimes murderous, stories of Asheville's past."
Kim W. of Las Vegas, NV says: What made this tour stand out from the dozen or so other ghost tours we have enjoyed is that our guide Todd was not only an expert in his local history and architecture but he brought along equipment for us to use to "ghost hunt" ourselves. It was so much fun to see the instruments reacting while they were in your own hands!! Great stories and facts, beautiful city, and personable guide. Very worthwhile.
