Ghostly footsteps, mysteriously locked doors, and apparitions from centuries past. The rolling hills and hollers of the Yadkin Valley have been home to many historic events, from Stoneman’s raid to the hanging of Tom Dooley. These events have left their imprint on the county’s architecture and landscape, and some of them have even
left a ghostly legacy. Ghosts of the Yadkin Valley is a collection of spine-tingling tales, including ghost stories from many of the area’s National Historic Register sites. Join local storyteller R.G. Absher as he relates the history behind the haunts.

About the Author:

R.G. Absher is a well know folklorist, storyteller, and musician from Western North Carolina. He has produced a number of musical recordings which relate to historical themes of Western North Carolina and has performed at concerts such as MerleFest and the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. In addition to his musical background, Absher is well versed in regional history and in many stories and tales of the Yadkin Valley. In 2005, Absher set up (and still leads) the successful Ghost Tours in Downtown Wilkesboro, NC on the properties managed by Wilkes Heritage Museum, as well as many sites on the National Historic Register. Currently, Absher is employed as the Assistant Park Manager at the W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir. He has been the presiding Board Chair of the Wilkes Heritage Museum since 2006 and has served as Vice President of the Overmountain Victory Trail Association since 2003. He is Chairman of the Wilkes Save Our History Committee, a group that raised enough money through donations and sponsors to produce over 200 Oral History interviews on DVD, then distributed these videos to regional school systems and county libraries. Many of these videos have been aired on UNC Public TV. His published works include A Driving Auto Tour of Historic Tom Dooley Sites for the US Army Corps of Engineers (2006). His enthusiasm for the ghosts of Wilkes County led to a series of interviews on Shadows in the Dark Radio, a station devoted to paranormal activity.
