Riverside Cemetery - Asheville NC Real Haunts
With over 13,000 individuals buried since it was created in 1885, Riverside is one of the most well-known cemeteries in North Carolina. From authors Thomas Wolfe and William Sidney Porter to eighteen German sailors from WWI, the status and diversity contained is rather astounding. With the site of the 1865 Battle of Asheville less than a mile away, many of the haunting rumors that surround Riverside deal with the shouting of troops, exchange of gunfire, and in one instance, a sighting of an entire Confederate troop in phantom form.
