First Presbyterian Church - Real Asheville Haunt
Built in 1841, the First Presbyterian Church was burned to the ground during the Civil War. The church that stands today is the rebuilt building that was erected in 1884, and has been the source of numerous notable incidents, such as the funeral of Thomas Wolfe. Supposedly, the spirit that haunts the church is named Black Abbey, due to the female apparition wearing a black dress. Whether or not she is related to the church's original fire is unclear, but she has a tendency to aimlessly roam up and down the church's halls.
