Wilmington, NC is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, USS North Carolina (BB-55). Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


Construction began on the USS North Carolina in 1937, at the New York Naval Shipyard and launched on June 13, 1940. It took part in every major naval offensive in the Pacific Theater of Operations, losing only ten sailors in action while earning 15 battle stars as the most decorated American battleship of World War II. Decommissioned in 1947, the North Carolina was used for training until 1960 when it nearly became a ghost itself before being purchased by the state (using money raised by schoolchildren in a Save Our Ship campaign) and permanently docked and serves as a museum at Eagle’s Island in Wilmington, North Carolina.


A spirit that has been seen on the USS North Carolina is a young male who has blonde hair. He is often seen in the passageways aboard the massive vessel.

There also seems to be another spirit lingering around, but this is not confirmed. Spirits here seem to enjoy causing disruptions in electricity, trying to talk to the living, and even following specific individuals who board the ship.
