Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

The Hammock House

Beaufort, North Carolina

This house is said to have been owned by Black Beard the Pirate. Once, Black Beard saw one of his crew members dancing with his girlfriend and consequently beheaded the man on the stairs. It is said that now, more than two hundred years later, blood stains eventually become visible again though the stairs have been sanded, painted, and carpeted.

Im a young man from a town near Beaufort, NC. Please be aware that Everything about the Hammock House on this website is true, but isnt accurate. Backbeard is not a legend at all, he is as much of a part of the history of North Carolina as the cival war. I have been to the Hammock House, heard the ghost of his dead wife screaming on multiple occaisons, and seen where his flagship the Queen Annes Revenge is wrecked.

A myth/legend huh? Not hardly. Just this summer they pulled up one of the cannons that was on his ship wrecked on our coast. I saw it and took pictures of it before it was cleaned up. If you wish to learn, there is a book called “Blackbeard, A tale of Villainy and Murder in Colonial America” written by Margaret Hoffman. An excellent read! I suggest you learn a bit more before opening your mouth about something you obviously know next to nothing about.

Read a book. You might learn that black beard was a real person. I have been on the ghost walk but nothing happened.That doesn’t prove that the stories aren’t true. But your lack of respect does prove your an idiot.

eddie, I just want to know one thing who are you talking to??????? If you are talking to me I just hope that I don’t meet you one of these days. I read books, but most books are just like you full of ****.

I use to clean this house every two weeks about 2 years ago. The people who live there now only come down in the summer. When we would go clean there the kitchen would be dirty like someone had been there cooking. Once I thought I saw a dog out of the corner of my eye then heard him running across the floor in the dining room. I have also seen the blood spots on the stairs that lead into the bathroom but the bathroom is new with tile now.

This Chris sounds like a kid who gets his kicks trying to be disruptive. If he doesn’t believe why would he waste his time on this website, so he can’t be a mature person to be behaving in this manner. I’d ignore his posts and go on to someone who is being more constructive if I were everyone else who is serious about this phenomenom. Don’t feed the little troll folks, he just looking for attention.

I’ve been on the ghost walks also.Sometimes nothing happens, but other times they do. It’s not fake at all.I know the couple that previously lived there and what they saw and heard is not a joke.I wish that this Chris kid would go to the house so Blackbeard himself can scare the living **** out of him.Little punk.

I have been to the Hammock house at Night and have not witnessed any of the screams,etc. Blackbeard was a real person and hogtown is just trying to make money off of a fairy tale about blood stains. PS: If you are going to leave comments-proofread for spelling.

Hello there!
I live in Beaufort and own the Anchorage House B&B on Turner Street. When my husband and I first moved into the house I thought it was my imagination but I would hear someone running upstairs, little shadows out of the corner of my eyes, and then I saw a women standing in my living room dressed in 1880 clothing and smiling at me! Not only have I seen things but several of our guests hear and see things. I have been on the ghost tour and I can tell you that Beaufort has had 300 years of people and history living here. There is no doubt that we have ghosts here. Just wish everyone would understand they show themselves to some people and others they don’t. I have never embraced seeing them but I don’t think anyone knows what is truely out there.
