Q. I watched an episode of MTV’s FEAR in which the Ideal factory was investigated for paranormal activity and wondered if the Ideal Cement plant in Castle Hayne truly home to hauntings? And were there really numerous fatal accidents and a suicide there?
A. We were unable to find any credible local sources to answer whether anyone committed suicide at the old Ideal Cement plant in the past.
As for the haunted portion of the question, well, if you believe in that sort of thing, perhaps you could attribute strange happenings there to ghosts.
Do any readers know more about the plant’s history, or have any thoughts about its paranormal status? Let us know in the Comment section below.
