Another Haunted House

Or, Photos From Rural Duplin County, NC

I adore old houses. The creepier the better. So when my daughter and I took a road trip through the back roads of North Carolina and spotted this home I had to stop and take pictures.

Lucky for me, the current owner of the house (and descendant of the original owners) saw me snapping photos and ambled out of the auto parts store next door. He told me the rear of the home was built in 1790 by his ancestors the Carr Family. The original plantation went on for miles, but has been whittled down over the centuries.

He assured me the interior is structurally sound, but the front roof leaked and damaged the side facing the road. Photos of the home have been featured in a book on the history of Duplin County.

Not too far from the Carr Plantation House I found this extremely creepy family cemetery built around a giant, leafless tree. Naturally, I had to stop and take a closer look.

    Thanks for the photo. I am researching my ancestry and found your pic. I believe that my ancestors where once owned by this Carr family and that they later became share croppers on the same land after the civil war. It would be great if you could put me in touch with the gentleman you met while taking this photo. He may be able to help me validate some of my theories about my ancestors.

      How fascinating! I’d love to hear more about your story. Sadly, I can’t put you in touch with the owner of the Carr House. I met him by complete accident as he happened to be at the auto shop next door and caught me taking pictures of the house. He crossed the street to talk to me, but it’s been so long I can’t remember his name, let alone how to reach him.

      I wish you luck in your search. Let me know how it works out.
