Q. I have lived in Wilmington for 44 years. I also grew up in Forest Hills. We have always heard of the house at 1101 Country Club Rd. is extremly haunted. Had a new couple move in it three years ago. They stayed six weeks and had to leave. Lots of people over at least the past 15 years that live there leave shortly after. The neighbors all are given the exact same reason! GHOSTS! Check into it if you can. Thanks.
A. MyReporter is afraid it can’t scare up an answer to this. We’ve been unable find evidence of ghostly apparitions there.
Brooks Preik, author of “Haunted Wilmington and the Cape Fear Coast,” and John Debnam, who’s lived on Country Club Road for decades, have never heard stories of a haunted house there. The structure sits right next to Wrightsville Avenue, which might explain the turnover in residents.
John Hirchak of Ghost Walk of Wilmington hasn’t heard of it either – although he usually doesn’t keep track of apparitions outside of downtown.
