Documenting Ghost Stories

And just in time for Halloween, an offering from East Forsyth High School teacher Farrah Hilton's 2012-2013 North Carolina History and Literature Class. Studying North Carolina's rich folklore has inspired students to create videos documenting ghost stories that they have either heard or researched.  From "Payne Road" to "The Devil's Tramping Ground," students have learned that North Carolina's folklore is more than just a written art form; its oral tradition makes it unique and interesting.
