Theodosia's Bed & Breakfast - Real Haunts in Bald Head Island NC
Theodosia's website describes the bed and breakfast as "a place where one may be reminded again of who they are and whose they are. A place to recapture your heart and rekindle your life." It is a striking description considering it is a place that was supposedly haunted by the girl who it was named after, Theodosia Burr Alston. Her family was filled with notable names, including her father, Aaron Burr, and her husband, South Carolina governor Joseph Alston. Theodosia was last seen on an 1812 voyage from Charlotte to New York, but after an incident at sea, widely thought to involve pirates, none of the passengers or crew were ever heard from again. Supposedly, however, Theodosia escaped and made her way to North Carolina's Outer Banks and lived with a family who took her in. Whether or not she was happy is debated, since according to the story, she ran out of the house one night and threw a portrait of herself into the sea. Supposedly, the portrait was recovered, but Theodosia remained missing. For some reason, her spirit appears to have always been drawn to the bed and breakfast, where her presence was felt by guests. Though Theodosia's Bed & Breakfast's website is still up, it appears that the business has been shut down indefinitely and is now closed to the public.
