the North Carolina Executive Mansion Joyful226
The Executive Mansion for the North Carolina governor in Raleigh was also reportedly haunted for a time, although according to the stories, the strange events have ceased. In 1970, Governor Bob Scott decided to replace the massive wooden bed in the second-floor bedroom of the mansion with a modern, king-sized bed. The original bed had been made in 1891 to precise measurements given to the carpenters by then governor, Daniel Fowle. He died in that same bed while still governor and some have suggested that his spirit remained with it. The old bed was moved to a room on the third floor and the new bed was put in its place. A short time, later the governor began to be awakened at night by a strange rapping sound which came from the wall where the original headboard had been. The rapping continued for several years, through the rest of Governor Scott’s administration, and he admitted that his family had nicknamed the pesky spirit, "Governor Fowle’s Ghost". The weird phenomenon ceased when a new administration took over the office. Not taking any chances... they decided to move the old bed back down to its original location. The ghost has not been heard from since.
