Western Carolina University - The Moore Building - Real Haunts in Cullowhee NC
Rumors suggest that the spirit of the murdered girl never left the Moore Building, instead staying to terrify future classes of girls with screaming and crying bouts. In a strange twist on the regular ghost story, the murderer was apparently arrested and served time in a mental institution, only to die in the mid 1980s. Since then, the sightings of the murdered girl's ghost have been few and far between, as it is believed that she has now found peace.

Ghosthunter Mitch can confirm haunts at Moore
My name is Ghosthunter Mitch, and it's a life mission of mine to document the ghosts and haunts of WNC. The Moore building was always at the top of my list, and was one of the first places I visited. I am a grad of WCU and worked at the radio station, which was (still is?) headquartered right across the street from Moore. In fact, our primary server was located in the basement of Moore, and whenever our station went out, whether it be mid-day or midnight, one of us had to go into Moore to reset the switch. I'll never forget the door closing behind me on one occasion! Also went up there with friends and explored the 2nd floor, and all of us saw something walk by the classroom we were standing in, yet when we checked no one was in the hall. If it was a janitor or someone, they would have surely yelled since it was after hours. Anyway you can read all about it and more of Western and Sylva's haunts on my blog, https://ghostsofwnc.blogspot.com/ Thanks!Posted 10/30/19

This building is no longer open to the public it has been closed due to a mold problem and is potentially going to be renovated in the future. As of now all doors are locked and there are no trespassing signs as well as security cameras. The building was closed to the public as of 2012 and hasn't been opened to students since.Posted 12/11/17
