Flat Rock, North Carolina - Devil's Headstone

At the summer camp I used to work at, a favorite activity was taking youngsters to the local haunt spot, a graveyard about 3 miles from camp. At this graveyard is a certain headstone with mold growing on it. In the daylight, it is nothing remarkable, but at night, the low light levels and the light from the moon turn the mold into a frightening likeness of a devil's head. The rumor is that the grave belongs to a young boy who died some sort of tragic death. As it happens, this graveyard and headstone is accessible from a historic settler road, an attraction in itself.

Every time I go back, I think the mold will be gone and the face along with it, but it has lasted at least 10 years and I expect it will still be there in another decade.

January 2005: Amy writes "That was such a wasted trip. We drove over 1 hour to see this sight and were so very disappointed. You may want to take it off of your list. Also, the directions were very, very wrong."

Devil's Headstone:
Address: Flat Rock, NC
Directions: Take Hwy 25 from Hendersonville to Flat Rock. Turn right on Rutledge Dr. and continue for 2 miles or so until coming to a stop sign. Turn left and then right into the new subdivision. Immediately look right for the sign describing the historic settler road. Turn down this grass covered road and continue for 300 feet. The gravestone is next to the road.
